Take me to the water
Take me to the water
Take me to the water
To be baptized

So none but the righteous
None but the righteous
None but the righteous
Shall see God yeah

So take me to the water
Take me to the water
Take me to the water
To be baptized

I'm going back home
I tell you I'm going back home now
Going back home
Can't stay here no longer

So I'm going back home
Going back home now
Going back home
To be to be to be baptized
