Chocolate Jesus Lyrics

Courtesy of Lyrics Mania

Tom Waits - Chocolate Jesus lyrics
Artist: Tom Waits
Album: Mule Variations
Year: 1999
Title: Chocolate Jesus

Don't go to church on Sunday
Don't get on my knees to pray
Don't memorize the books of the Bible
I got my own special way
But I know Jesus loves me
Maybe just a little bit more

I fall on my knees every Sunday
At Zerelda Lee's candy store

Well it's got to be a chocolate Jesus
Make me feel good inside
Got to be a chocolate Jesus
Keep me satisfied

Well I don't want no Abba Zabba
Don't want no Almond Joy
There ain't nothing better
Suitable for this boy
Well it's the only thing
That can pick me up
Better than a cup of gold
See only a chocolate Jesus
Can satisfy my soul

When the weather gets rough
And it's whiskey in the shade
It's best to wrap your savior
Up in cellophane
He flows like the big muddy
But that's ok
Pour him over ice cream
For a nice parfait

Well it's got to be a chocolate Jesus
Good enough for me
Got to be a chocolate Jesus
Good enough for me

Well it's got to be a chocolate Jesus
Make me feel good inside
Got to be a chocolate Jesus
Keep me satisfied

Nano & NaNoWriMo

First off...I took the Apple plunge.

Just hit the "BUY" button over at for 4 iPod Nano's. My mp3 player died, the kids' mp3 players have issues and the wife wants one too. Soooo....I dropped the dime and picked up 4 Nano's. (The kids get theirs for Xmas...I get mine NOW! Why? Cause I'm the Dad...that's why!)

I also signed up for NaNoWriMo...National Novel Writers Month. The idea is to crank out a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. Silence the internal editor and just write, write, write. I've a few stories running around in my head. A couple of them I've started, re-started, changed around and just plain left sitting there. I think I've finally decided the one I'm going to go with. It's been percolating the longest and the idea is fleshing out nicely. I'm going to adapt and expand an old short story I wrote a few years back. We'll see how it goes...

Today was the last day for my problem employee. Not really my employee. But he has been my headache for the last year. He refused to get along. Bad mouthed everyone to the mother ship in PHX. Did whatever he wanted knowing he was fully protected as he was good buddies with the Chief Pilot. Things any of the other 3 of us had done would have resulted in an arse chewing with a strong letter to follow!

All week I've been saying, "6 more days", "5 more days", "4 more days", etc. I've had a piss-poor attitude towards him and was, shall we say, less than grown-up about expressing it. I apologized to the crew at the base for my attitude. They didn't see anything wrong with what I'd been saying and doing but I wasn't feeling good about it. Just wasn't the way I should have been acting. Now he's gone and I can finally let it go. He's someone else's problem now!

I need a part-time job for my off week. Something that's M-Th, morning to early afternoon. Any ideas???
