"Saint Of Me" lyrics

Saint Of Me

Saint Paul the persecutor
Was a cruel and sinful man
Jesus hit him with a blinding light
And then his life began
I said, yes
I said, yeah

Augustin knew temptation
He loved women, wine and song
And all the special pleasures
Of doing something wrong
I said, yes
I said, yeah

I said, yeah
Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah
You'll never make a saint of me
Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah
You'll never make a saint of me

And could you stand the torture?
And could you stand the pain?
Could you put your faith in Jesus
When you're burning in the flames?
I said, yes

And I do believe in miracles
And I wanna save my soul
And I know that I'm a sinner
I'm gonna die here in the cold
I said, yes
I said, yeah

I said, yeah
Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah
You'll never make a saint of me
Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah
You'll never make a saint of me

Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah
You'll never make a saint of me
Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah
You'll never make a saint of me

I thought I heard an angel cry
I thought I saw a teardrop
Falling from his eye

Now John the Baptist was a martyr
But he stirred up Herod's hate
And Salome got her wish
To have him served up on a plate
I said, yes
Yeah, I said, yeah

I said, yeah
Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah
You'll never make a saint of me
Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah
You'll never make a saint of me

Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah
You'll never make a saint of me
Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah
You'll never make a saint of me

I thought I heard an angel cry
I thought I saw a teardrop
Falling from his eye
Yeah
I thought I saw an angel cry
Ooh, yeah

You'll never make a saint of me
You'll never make a saint of me
Never make a saint of me
Never make a saint of me
