It's a personal thing and I find it odd
You would question my believing in a personal God
I'm devout, I'm sincere, ask my mother if you doubt it
I'm religious but I'd rather not get radical about it

The old-time believers had timidity and grace
But this new generation doesn't know its place
You're entitled to believe but the latest Gallup Poll
Says you mustn't interfere that's the government's role

'Cause when you throw your hat in the bullring
Before you know, know, know it's a personal thing
And when he comes to the day of reckoning
He's gonna tell 'em, "Uh, uh, uh, it's a personal thing"

It's a personal thing and I boldly state
That my views on morality will have to wait
'Til my personal life's out of the public eye
And the limitations statue can protect my alibi

I'm devout, I'm sincere and I'm proud to say
That it's had exactly no effect on who I am today
I believe for the benefit for all mankind
In the total separation of church and mind

'Cause when you throw your hat in the bullring
Before you know, know, know it's a personal thing
And when he comes to the day of reckoning
He's gonna tell 'em, "Uh, uh, uh, it's a personal thing"

It's a personal thing and I plainly speak
From the same code of ethics that I learnt last week
As I promised if elected this election day
With the help of God almighty, I'll do it my way

'Cause when you throw your hat in the bullring
Before you know, know, know it's a personal thing
And when he comes to the day of reckoning
He's gonna say, "Back off buddy, it's a personal thing"
