Sitting in the corner of a run down bar
In Big Bear, California
Father James O’Reilly smiles and puts one down
A young green-eyed girl walks up to him and says
“How’s about a little fun tonight?”

And the Father smiles

He said, “Sex on the beach and Misty’s LSD
That was a long time ago for me
And maybe one day I’ll be okay with that
Confess me your sins in a red cookie tin
And I’ll pull your name right out of my hat”

He got up, set his Rosary on the stool
And started for the door
Father James O’Reilly looked me right in the eye
Unclipped his collar, tossed it to the side as I said
“Father, must you leave again this time?”

And the Father smiles

He said, “Sex on the beach and Misty’s LSD
That was a long time ago for me
And maybe one day I’ll be okay with that
Confess me your sins in a red cookie tin
And I’ll pull your name right out of my hat”
