Lyrics

(Peter Cooper) Well Known Music/SESAC/admin. by BUG Music

If everything we do has been divined by some greater power, then we are doing the Lord’s work, no matter how we’re acting, what we’re saying or who we’re with. I’ve spent a lifetime searching for cop-outs, and this is the greatest I’ve found. And as a proud member of Sheboygan Elks Lodge #299, I’m happy to sing about my adopted hometown.

I went to church one Sunday
I heard the preacher say
“God knew 10 million years ago
The things you’ll do today”
It’s all pre-destination
I figure what it means
Is that we do the things we do
‘Cause God wills us to do these things


So I’m sittin’ in Sheboygan drunk again
Sittin’ in Sheboygan drunk again
Everything according to the master’s plan
Sittin’ in Sheboygan drunk again


It’s not for us to understand
The things that He divines
Shout or curse or praise
But it was He who wrote your lines
He decides our mortal fate
Scholar, star or fool
He meant for me right now to be
Right here on this barstool


So I’m sittin’ in Sheboygan drunk again
Sittin’ in Sheboygan drunk again
Everything according to the master’s plan
Sittin’ in Sheboygan drunk again


I would not change this lot He left me
Even if I could
The life that He breathes into me
Is sweet and fine and good


So long as I’m sittin’ in Sheboygan drunk again
Sittin’ in Sheboygan drunk again
Everything according to the master’s plan
Sittin’ in Sheboygan drunk again
I said everything’s according to the master’s plan
Sittin’ in Sheboygan drunk again
Again
Again
