(Never
Make A)
Saint
Of Me


Song by
The
Rolling Stones









Saint Paul the persecutor
Was a cruel and sinful man
Jesus hit him with a blinding light
And then his life began

I said yeah I said yeah

Augustine knew temptation
He loved women, wine and song
And all the special pleasures
Of doing something wrong

I said yeah I said yeah I said yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
You'll never make a saint of me
Oh yeah, oh yeah
You'll never make a saint of me

And could you stand the torture
And could you stand the pain
Could you put your faith in Jesus
When you're burning in the flames
I said yes, Oh yeah

And I do believe in miracles
And I want to save my soul
And I know that I'm a sinner
I'm gonna die here in the cold
I said yes, I said yeah

I said yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
You'll never make a saint of me
Oh yeah, oh yeah
You'll never make a saint of me

John the Baptist was a martyr But he stirred up Herod's hate
And Salome got her wish
To have him served up on a plate
I said yes I said yeah

I said yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
You'll never make a saint of me
Oh yeah, oh yeah
You'll never make a saint of me
