From the album 12 Stories

Lyrics

The only thing that budges waitin' on a judge is another piece of land. We need a better plan. How 'bout a king? Yeah!
People, if I do, you'll only give your loyalty to royalty that rightfully belongs to me, not a good thing! Yeah.
Judge and prophet Samuel, go tell all of Israel: I'll give you what you want - I'll give you Saul, but you're not out of the woods. Yeah.
It started off okay and then his pride got in the way, and when I told him "Wipe away the enemy", he spared the king and his goods! Yeah. Yeah!

But there's the city in Zion, where the chosen can pray, yeah, yeah.
And if it's me you rely on, you could have it today. Yeah, yeah.

I took away the favor that I gave to Saul and later told the prophet Nathan find the shepherd boy who does the whole harp and dance. Yeah.
David slew Goliath and the king could not deny it but he started getting jealous of the boy and wouldn't give him a chance. Yeah.
David loved the king, but then the king when after Dave, and so he hid up in a cave and then he wrote some of the psalms that we sing. Yeah.
Saul died in a battle and David got rattled but he got back in the saddle, took Jerusalem, long live the king! Yeah. Yeah!

Now there's the city in Zion where the chosen can pray, yeah!
And if it's me you rely on, you could keep it today, yeah yeah.

In the city of Zion, even Dave lost his way, yeah.
Took the wife of Uriah, and baby he paid, yeah.

But there's a city in Zion where the chosen can pray, yeah, yeah.
And if it's me you rely on, you could have it today yeah, yeah.
Now there's a city in Zion where the chosen can pray, yeah, yeah.
And if it's me you rely on, you could keep it today yeah, yeah.
You could keep it today yeah, yeah
You could keep it today yeah, yeah
And it's still there today, yeah, yeah.
Everything was okay yeah, yeah.
For a while, anyway!
