Slippery People

Performed by the Staples Singers

What about the time you were rolling over
Falling on your face – you must be having __1___
Walk lightly, think of a time
You’d best believe this thing is real

Put away that __2__ – this part is simple
Try to recognize what is in your mind
God help us, help us lose our minds
These slippery people, help us understand

What’s the matter with him? He’s alright
How do you know? The Lord won’t mind
Don’t play no ___3___ – he’s alright
Love from the bottom to the top
Turn like a wheel  – he’s alright
See for yourself  – the Lord won’t mind
We’re gonna move right now
Turn like a wheel inside a wheel

I remember when, sitting in the tub
Pulled out the plug – the water was running out
Cool down, stop acting ___4___
They’re gonna leave and we’ll be on our own

Seven times five – they were living creatures
Watch them come to life right before your ___5___
Backslider,  how do you do?
These slippery people
Gonna see you through

What’s the matter with him? He’s alright
How do you know? The Lord won’t mind
Don’t play no ___6___ – he’s alright
Love from the bottom to the top
Turn like a wheel  – he’s alright
See for yourself  – the Lord won’t mind
We’re gonna move right now
Turn like a wheel inside a wheel
