Jesse's Boy
Parody of "Jessie's Girl" by Rick Springfield
(1 Samuel 13:11-14, 16:1-13)

Jesse is afraid
Yet I know God's got a good plan in mind
'Cause lately Saul's been changed
He ain't hardly divine
Jesseís got him several sons, and there's one who's next in line

And he'll watch over the Israelites
And he'll love the Lord his God, yeah, I just know it
And he's holier in his heart and prays late at night
You know, where did that child of Jesse's go?
Where did that child of Jesse's go?
Where can I find a ruler like that?

Displayed them all like a parade
There doesn't seem to be a king in the place
You know I feel so certain he's not part of this group
They run and tell their younger brother
But the boy is just a youth

And he'll watch over the Israelites
And he'll love the Lord his God, yeah, I just know it
And he's holier in his heart and prays late at night
You know, where did that child of Jesseís go?
I wish to find and bless him so
Where can I find a ruler like that
I guess he's slow
Where did that child of Jesse's go?
Where can I find a ruler
Where can I find a ruler like that?

When you look at appearance all the time
There's some stuff you won't see skin deep
God is funny He isnít fooled by the size
And thatís the way Iím supposed to be

Tell me, where can I find a ruler like that?
LEAD

You know, where did that child of Jesse's go?
I wish to find and bless him so
I wanna bless him so
Where can I find a ruler like that?
I guess you know
I wish to find and bless him so
I want, I wanna bless him so

1 Samuel 16:1
The LORD said to Samuel, "How long will you mourn for Saul, since I have rejected him as king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil and be on your way; I am sending you to Jesse of Bethlehem. I have chosen one of his sons to be king."
