Goin' for The Pastor Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I've been in love for a short time
I had a little trouble makin' up my mind
Somethin' got in my way, babe
I find it really hard for me to say

I know that my head was hot, girl
Hot enough to hit the spot that makes you trot
But, girl, I ain't no liar
Gonna' set your little heart on fire, yeah

I've had my hit and miss, girl
I'm ready now to settle right down to this
I hope that your love is true, babe
As true as the love I hold for you

There's one thing that I'd say, girl
I love you forever and a day
Now, girl, I ain't no liar
I'm gonna set your little heart on fire, yeah

'Cause when I'm thinking of you
(Thinkin' about you)
My heart beats faster, I'm goin' for the pastor
I got me a love and I'm gonna make it last, girl

Girl, 'cause when I think about you
(Thinkin' about you)
My heart beats faster I'm goin' for the pastor
I got me a love and I'm gonna' make it last, girl

I really think you're brave, babe
For cuttin' loose that bloodthirsty Dave the knave
Now Davey, his love was strong, babe
But you're better off with a love that's long

You never have to be alone, girl
'Cause I'll be there when you come back home
Now, girl, I ain't no liar
I'm gonna' set your little heart on fire

'Cause when I'm thinking of you
(Thinkin' about you)
My heart beats faster, I'm goin' for the pastor
I got me a love and I'm gonna make it last, girl

Girl, 'cause when I'm thinking of you
(Thinkin' about you)
My heart beats faster, I'm goin' for the pastor
I got me a love and I'm gonna make it last, girl
