Lyrics

He was your favorite dancer at the drag queen show
He loved tips, tequila and little baggies filled with mistletoe
He always said, "Well, how you doin' tonight, baby?
Go ahead, tell me a lie I don't already know"
He was hated half his life in Sandusky
Now he's the star of bar where the sun doesn't shine
And after he strips his Santa Claus outfit,
he works the room looking for men with sin in their eyes

Lonely, lonely men flock to Jesus
Looking for something that'll make them think they walk taller
See them gathering a heartbeat from his arms
Amazing what you can get for a dollar

Now he knows that this good time will kill him someday
Better to die then be forgotten and old
When the same empty grin that promises him the whole world
will turn away hard as the sidewalk and just as cold

Lonely lonely men flock to Jesus
So tired of prayers that no one hears or will answer
See them gathering forgiveness from his arms
Amazing what you can get for a dollar
Amazing what you can get for a dollar

Now he gets in around 5 am
and he passes out all alone
He drinks another shot
and descends into heaven's arms
because on Earth he has no home
Those of you who weigh him and judge him
and say that in sin he's hopelessly mire
killed the real Christ off
before he had a chance to get sick and tired

Lonely lonely men flock to Jesus
So tired of prayers that no one hears or will answer
See them gathering a blessing from his arms
Amazing what you can get for a dollar
Amazing what you can get for a dollar
Amazing what you can get for a dollar
Amazing what you can get for a dollar
