We've laid the cables and the wires
We've split the wood and stoked the fires
We've lit our town so there is no
Place for crime to hide
Our little church is painted white
And in the safety of the night

We all go quiet as a mouse
For the word is out
That God is in the house

God is in the house
God is in the house
No cause for worry now
God is in the house

Moral sneaks in the White House
Computer geeks in the school house
Drug freaks in the crack house
We don't have that stuff here
We have a tiny little force
But we need them of course

For the kittens in the trees
And at night we are on our knees
As quiet as a mouse
For God is in the house

God is in the house
God is in the house
And no one's left in doubt
God is in the house

Homos roamin' the streets in packs
Queer bashes with tyre jacks
Lesbian counter attacks
That stuff is for the big cities
Our town is very pretty
We have a pretty little square
We have a woman for a mayor
Our policy is firm but fair
Now that God is in the house

God is in the house
God is in the house
Any day now He'll come out
God is in the house

Well meaning little therapists
Goose steppin' twelve steppin' te totalitarianism
The tipsy, the reelin' and the drop down pissed
We got no time for that stuff here
Zero crime and no fear
And we've bred all our kittens white
So that you can see them in the night
And at night we're on our knees

As quiet as a mouse
Since the word got out
From the north down to the south
For no-one's left in doubt
There's no fear about
If we all hold hands and very quietly shout
Hallelujah

God is in the house
God is in the house
Oh I wish He would come out
God is in the house
