Sermonette: Are You A Rolling Stone, Papa? (don't shout me down)

Hey momma was it true? Posted by Hello

Reverend Martin G. 'Mike' Ramey gets blunt -

"A few decades back, The Temptations came out with a successful song entitled "Papa Was A Rolling Stone". I invite you who are single and have contributed--or are thinking about contributing--to the increasing OOW rate to do a web search and get a copy of the lyrics.

Papa Was A Rolling Stone
Norman Whitfield/Barrett Strong

it was the third of september
that day I'll always remember, yes I will
'cause that was the day that my daddy died

never had a chance to see him, no
never heard nothing but bad things about him
mama, I'm depending on you to tell me the truth
mama just hung her head and said

"papa was a rollin' stone
wherever he laid his hat was his home
and when he died
all he left us was alone"

As a matter of fact, as a piece of advice to single women everywhere, pick up a copy of the lyrics yourself and see IF that single man you are seeing happens to fit the profile of the brother described in the song.

Brothers, the song will provide you with a great idea as to how your future children will feel, if you don't settle first things first and M-A-R-R-Y that woman whom you may be interested in--before you even think about becoming a father."

Read Reverend Martin G. 'Mike' Ramey's sermon as he's preaching up a storm - "Are You A Rolling Stone, Papa?"!

Don't shout the brother down when he's on a roll, AMEN?
