We Twitter, we Facebook, we blog,
We invite you to dress casually.
Our women sing
Praises to the King.
But Pastor or Deacon she can never be
Over men she can not have authority.
She must be a good wife and bake cookies all day long
And teach her children with verse and song.
We Twitter, we Facebook, we blog
We invite you to dress casually
We proudly keep our women
In the First century!
