Eurythmics ♪ Missionary Man
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 mother told me good,
My mother 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.

Well 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,
The missionary man he was following me.
He said “stop what you're doing”,
“Get down upon your knees”,
“I've got a message for you that you better believe”.

The music video is directed by Willy Smax.
