Sex And The Church

Lyrics and music by David Bowie

 

Though the idea of convulsion is said to be
The union of christ and his bride
The christian
It's all very puzzling

Sex and the church
Sex and the church
Sex and the church
And the church...and the church

All the great mystic religions
Put strong emphasis, on
The redeeming spiritual qualities
Of sex...of sex
Christianity
Has been pretty modern 
About sex

Of sex
Of sex
Of sex
Of sex
Sex and the church
Sex and the church
Sex and the church
Sex...sex

I think there is a union
Between the flesh and the spirit
Sex and the church
Sex and the church

All religions' mother (spoken)

VERSE (twice)
  Give me the freedom of spirit
  And the joys of the flesh
  And sex...sex...
  Sex and the church

CHORUS (twice)
  Sex and the church
  Sex and the church
  Sex and the church
  And the church...and the church
  Sex
  Sex
  Sex and the church
  Sex and the church
  Sex and the church
  Sex...sex...sex

Sex

Sex and the church
Sex and the church
Sex and the church
Sex...sex
