To Be Rebuked
Parody of "To Be with You" by Mr. Big
(Matthew 18:15-17, Luke 17:3-4, Proverbs 27:5-6)

Someone's been a jerk
Tell them what they've done to you
Stand up - it'll work
Unspoken hurts can't heal that fast
When you brood and stew
Satan gets the most of you
Be someone braver, someone bolder
Get the demon off your shoulder

I'm not one who wants to be rebuked
Deep inside I know you feel it's rude
We're not wrong to mind our p's and q's
Just don't be afraid to speak the truth

Tell them in confidence
And if they will not stop at once
Take one you care about
To witness if they scoff too much
They'll see it all go down
But ganging up is not allowed
Bring someone stable, someone sober
Let them see you want this over

Why grieve alone
When you can meet together maybe?
Truth can change your life's worst trial
Silence makes it hard to smile

Man, it's true - Matthew
18:15 shows the proof
And Proverbs, baby - mull this over
27:5 will show you

Matthew 18:15-16
"If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between
the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. But if they
will not listen, take one or two others along, so that 'every matter may be
established by the testimony of two or three witnesses."
