01. Real Good Thing

Going Public
by Newsboys



 

When we don't get what we deserve,
That's a real good thing.
A real good thing.
When we get what we don't deserve,
That's a real good thing.
A real good thing.

Born to sin
And then get caught.
All our good deeds
Don't mean squat.

Sell the Volvo,
Shred the Visa,
Send the cast to Ma Teresa.
Great idea,
The only catch is
You don't get saved
On merit badges.

When we don't get what we deserve,
That's a real good thing.
A real good thing.
When we get what we don't deserve,
That's a real good thing.
A real good thing.

Doctor's coming,
Looking grim.
"Do you have a favorite hymn?"

Check your balance through the years.
All accounts are in arrears.
Guilt is bitter.
Grace is sweet.
Park it here
On the mercy seat.

When we don't get what we deserve,
That's a real good thing.
A real good thing.
When we get what we don't deserve,
That's a real good thing.
A real good thing.

By Steve Taylor, Peter Furler
