The lyrics of this song are very cool. The first verse says, "This here's a song about two sets of Jones', Rothchild, Evelyn, Rueben and Sue. Just for discussion, through random selection, we've chosen two couples who haven't a clue." Then the second verse says, "Rothchild was lucky to marry so wealthy, Evelyn bought him a house on the beach. Rueben and Sue they had nothing but Jesus, and at night they would pray that He cared for them each."
Then the chorus says, "And the rain came down, and it blew the four walls down, and the clouds they rolled away. Two sets of Jones' were standing that day." Then the third verse says, "Evelyn's Daddy was proud of young Rothchild, he worked the late hours to be number one. Just newlyweds and their marriage got rocky, he's flying to Dallas, she's having a son." Then the fourth verse says, "Rueben was holding a Gideon's Bible, when he screamed "It's a Boy!" so that everyone heard.
And the guys at the factory took a collection, again God provided for bills he incurred." Then the chorus comes in again.
The bridge then says, "So what is the point of this story? What am I trying to say? Is your life built on the rock of Christ Jesus, or on a sandy foundation, you've managed to lay?" Then the fifth and final verse comes in with, "Well, needless to say Evelyn left her husband, Sued him for every penny he had. And I truly wish that those two would find Jesus, before things get worst then they already have." Then the chorus comes in, but now the last line is changed to "One set of Jones' was standing that day." Then it comes in one last time, now its changed again to, "There's Two Sets of Jones'. Which one, will, you be?" Then there is a small 'la-la-ing' section, and then the song ends.
This song is so beautiful, because the message of this song is that there were two new marriages starting up, one for love with Jesus, and one for 'love', and with money. The one built on faith, was able to last, and the one built on money, was not able to last. The way the song works, is the first lyrics after the chorus is about the bad marriage, and the second verse is about the good one. It shows that faith must be at the center of a marriage, if you want to be happy, and want it to last.
So I hope that you all enjoy this song, and all get around to loving it as much as I do!
Did you like the song? Do you think it has a good message? Would you want to share this song with others, who might be struggling through a marriage, or just though life?
