Second Fiddle
by Gaither Vocal Band

Album: The Best of the Gaither Vocal Band

v1: Lead
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

Pre-Chorus 1
God walked in the room and a hush filled the air, Gabriel put down His bow and moved down to second chair.

Hook: Trio Unison
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

v2: Lead
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

Pre-Chorus 2
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.

Repeat Hook
