Second Fiddle

Album: Israel Homecoming
by Bill & Gloria Gaither

VERSE (1):
The angels got together
In the Great Throne Room
Thought they'd pass some time
By picking a tune

Michael on guitar,
Raphael on mandolin
And Gabe, he was the leader
On the old violin

I think it was an elder said,
"Whatcha gonna play?
Amazing Grace or how 'bout Happy Day"

The strings were all tuned and they were tapping their feet
But just when they were ready to play the first beat
God walked in the room and a hush filled the air
Gabriel put down His bow
And moved down to second chair

It's not a bill that's up to be voted on
It became a law
When He wrote it in stone
Number one in the list of His Big Ten
When He came to earth
He said it again

It's been the same way since
The beginning of time
So don't be fooled into thinking
That it's not a crime
He made it plain and clear
It's not a rhyme or a riddle
God don't play second fiddle

VERSE (2):
I once knew a man
That was climbing the ladder
His portfolio was all that mattered
He made lots of cash
Didn't give much away
His very best friend was his CPA,
A beautiful wife, two girls, and a boy
But his IRA was his pride and joy

His own net worth became divine
At the altar of His bottom line
But then the market turned
And His bank account ran dry
Betrayed by His money God
He just hung His head and cried


No compromise
No way that He'll concede
If He's gonna play at all
It's just got to be the lead
So let Him play
