Well, I was born an original sinner
I was borne from original sin
And if I had a dollar bill for all the things I've done
There'd be a mountain of money piled up to my chin

My mama told me good, my mama told me strong
She said, "Be true to yourself and you can't go wrong"
But there's just one thing that you must understand
You can fool with your brother but don't mess with a missionary man"

"Don't mess with a missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man"

Well, l the missionary man, he's got God on his side
He's got the saints and apostles backin' up from behind
Black eyed looks from those Bible books
He's a man with a mission, got a serious mind

There was a woman in the jungle and a monkey on a tree
Missionary man he was followin' me
He said, "Stop what you're doing, get down upon your knees
I've a message for you that you better believe, believe, believe"

Well, I was born an original sinner
I was borne from original sin
And if I had a dollar bill for all the things I've done
There'd be a mountain of money piled up

Don't mess with a missionary man
Missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man

Don't mess with a missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man
Missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man

Don't mess with a missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man
