I Choose to be a Christian

I am looking for the verses to this song. The chorus goes like this:

I choose to be a Christian. I choose to be like this. Nobody's making me do it, this is how I want to live. You decide for you. And I'll decide for me. You see the choice is mine, this is how I want to live.

God Bless!

I think this is the song you're looking for. A couple of girls sung this song when I was growing up...you're depending on memory of over 25 years, and this is how I remember them singing the song. Hope it helps!!!


I met a man the other day who looked at me & said
so many times I've seen your kind before
He said you can't do this & you can't do that
you're bound by rules & restrictions
what a dreary life you Christians must observe

I looked him in the eye & said you're wrong
I can do anything that will turn you on
I can smoke until my eyes turn red & my face turns blue
I can chew & dip, I can snort & cuss
I can party all night til the sun comes up
but there's better things in life I'd rather do.


I choose to be a Christian. I choose to be like Him.
Nobody's holding a gun to my head, this is how I want to live.
You decide for you. And I'll decide for me.
I've made my choice & this how I want to live.

Don't look at me with sympathy and think that i've been cheated
for not doing all those things that you call fun
oh sometimes when you headed down on the wrong side of town
this choice I've make is gonna lift me out of here.

this is an amazing song, we always sing it in a group at my church, and trust me the power of my God always seems to fall when we all get in there and sing this song. If you think that all that is what helps you in life please read the lyrics to this, i thought for the longest that i had to have everything that is in this world just because i thought it would make me look cool and that, thats the only way i would have friends but when i started to really get in church the good Ol pentycostal way i learned that the only places all that stuff is gonna get me is to hell faster, please if your alone and think that its the only option think again and ask God to show you how to live he will guide you if youll just let him.
