  • Song Lyrics:
    Woke up this mornin', turned on the TV set
    There in livin' color was somethin' I can't forget
    This man was preachin' at me, yeah, layin' on the charm
    askin' me for twenty, with ten-thousand on his arm.
    He wore designer clothes and a big smile on his face
    Tellin' me salvation while they sang Amazin' Grace.
    Askin' me for money, when he had all the signs of wealth.
    I almost wrote a check out, yeah, then I asked myself

    (chorus:)
    Would He wear a pinky ring, would He drive a fancy car?
    Would His wife wear furs and diamonds; would His dressin' room have a star?
    If He came back tomorrow, well there's somethin' I'd like to know
    Could ya tell me, Would Jesus wear a Rolex on His television show

    Would Jesus be political if He came back to earth?
    Have His second home in Palm Springs, yeah, a try to hide His worth?
    Take money, from those poor folks, when He comes back again,
    and admit He's talked to all them preachers who say they been a talkin' to Him?

    (chorus)

    Just ask ya' self, would He wear a pinky ring,
    Would He drive a fancy car?
    Would His wife wear furs and diamonds; would His dressing room have a star?
    If He came back tomorrow, well there's somethin' I'd like to know
    Could ya tell me, would Jesus wear a Rolex
    Would Jesus wear a Rolex
    Would Jesus wear a Rolex
    On His television show-ooh-ooh?
    (Stavro Arrgolus)
