Download Mississippi Squirrel Revival by Ray Stevens

Ray Stevens Mississippi Squirrel Revival lyrics

Well, when I was a kid I'd take a trip,
every summer down to Mississip,
To visit my granny in her antebellum world.

I'd run barefooted all day long,
climbin' trees free as a song,
And one day I happened to catch myself a squirrel.

Well, I stuffed him down in an old shoe box,
punched a couple of holes in the top,
And when Sunday came I snuck him into Church.

I was sittin' way back in the very last pew,
showin' him to my good buddy Hugh,
When that squirrel got loose and went totally berserk.

Well, what happened next is hard to tell,
Some thought it was heaven others thought it was hell,
But the fact that something was among us was plain to see.

As the choir sang, "I Surrender All,"
the squirrel ran up Harv Newlan's coveralls,
Harv leaped to his feet and said, "Somethin's got a hold on me! Yeow!"


The day the squirrel went berserk,
In the First Self-Righteous Church,
In the sleepy little town of Pascagoula,
It was a fight for survival,
that broke out in revival,
They were jumpin' pews and shoutin' Hallelujah!

Well, Harv hit the aisles dancin' and screamin',
Some thought he had religion others thought he had a demon,
And Harv thought he had a weed eater loose in his Fruit-Of-The-Looms
He fell to his knees to plead and beg and the squirrel ran out of his britches leg
Unobserved to the other side of the room
All the way down to the amen pew where sat Sister Bertha better-than-you
Who'd been watchin' all the commotion with sadistic glee
But you should've seen the look in her eyes
When that squirrel jumped her garters and crossed her thighs
She jumped to her feet and said "Lord have mercy on me"
As the squirrel made laps inside her dress
She began to cry and then to confess to sins that would make a sailor blush with shame
She told of gossip and church dissension but the thing that got the most attention
Was when she talked about her love life and then she started naming names


The day the squirrel went berserk
In the First Self-Righteous Church
In that sleepy little town of Pascagoula
It was a fight for survival that broke out in revival
They were jumpin' pews and shoutin' Hallelujah!

Well seven deacons and the pastor got saved,
Twenty-five thousand dollars was raised and fifty volunteered
For missions in the Congo on the spot
Even without an invitation there were at least five hundred rededications
And we all got baptized whether we needed it or not
Now you've heard the bible story I guess
How he parted the waters for Moses to pass
Oh the miracles God has wrought in this old world
But the one I'll remember 'til my dyin' day
Is how he put that Church back on the narrow way
With a half crazed Mississippi squirrel


The day the squirrel went berserk
In the First Self-Righteous Church
In the sleepy little town of Pascagoula
It was a fight for survival that broke out in revival
They was jumpin' pews and shoutin' Hallelujah!
