Lyrics

Toby Mac, and the Mac is back no slack
On a DC track that's jacked, beyond comprehension
I believe that I failed to mention that
There's a lack of recognition
When it comes to His position
Cause if Christ can't be crossed over,
Then I'll keep my beat up nova

Jesus is still alright with me
Jesus is still alright, oh yeah
Jesus is still alright with me
Jesus is still alright

I don't care what they may say
I don't care what they may do
I don't care what they may say
Jesus is still alright

Back in place, and I'm all up in your face
With a rhyme that I embrace, like a mother to her child
I'm kickin' it Jesus style
To the ones that think they heard
I did use the "J" word
Cause I ain't too soft to say it
Even if DJ's don't play it

I'm down with the one that is known as the Son
Of the G to the O to the D never done
With the flow, in the know, on the go like a pro
Not for show cause I ain't in the biz for the dough
Or the me, or the ray, all the dough's gotta stay,
Cause I can't, no I can't, take it home anyway
Never trite when I write cause the Lord is my light
And His Word is my bond so ya know, He's alright



Remixes

Two remixes of the song appeared on the Free at Last Extended Play Remix project, both by Scott Blackwell. There's a techno version and a retro version.

There's a rare "Switchback" remix that's actually pretty good.

On the Intermission: The Greatest Hits project, the song is cut down somewhat, but there's an interesting surprise near the end: Toby found some old vocals that had been recorded and never included, so he put them in there. It's a short segment of Kevin and Michael doing a few licks.
