"Holy Water" is a song off Madonna's thirteenth studio album Rebel Heart.

Background

This church-baiting song finds Madonna touching on two of her favorite topics: sex and religion. A sort of erotic baptism, the lyrics marry sexual and religious imagery in a similar, albeit more explicit fashion, as the Queen of Pop's 1989 hit tune "Like A Prayer." Asked about her current relationship with Catholicism during a February 2015 interview with Billboard magazine, Madonna replied: "Catholicism feels like my alma mater. It's the school I used to go to, and I can go back any time I want and take whatever I want from it because I suffered all the oppression, and all the abuse - and also enjoyed all the pomp and circumstance, the drama and the confusion and the hypocrisy and the craziness."

Composition

The song has hedonistic sound effects, which echoes Madonna's 1990 single, "Justify My Love" and contains a lyrical excerpt from "Vogue". The lyrics also echoes Madonna's songs "Where Life Begins" and "Secret Garden".

Lyrics

I can give you everything that you want
(Bitch, get off my pole. Bitch, get off my pole.)
You can't buy this at no luxury store
(Bitch, get off my pole. Bitch, get off my pole.)

There's a place you gotta go
Before I let you take it all
It's like a drug, it should be illegal

Baby, you should get down low
And drink my precious alcohol
You look so thirsty, I think you need it

Kiss it better, kiss it better
Don't it taste like holy water?
Make it wetter, make it wetter
Don't it taste like holy water?
Kiss it better, make it wetter
Don't it taste like holy water?
Kiss it better, kiss it better

I can teach you all the things you don't know
(Bitch, get off my pole. Bitch, get off my pole.)
It's rare like mink, it's something you wanna own
(Bitch, get off my pole. Bitch, get off my pole.)

There's something you gotta hit
It's sacred and immaculate
I can let you in heaven's door

I promise you it's not a sin
Find salvation deep within
We can do it here on the floor

Kiss it better, kiss it better
Don't it taste like holy water?
Make it wetter, make it wetter
Don't it taste like holy water?
Kiss it better, make it wetter
Don't it taste like holy water?
Kiss it better, kiss it better

Don't it taste like holy water?
Like holy water?
Don't it taste like holy water?
Bless yourself and genuflect
Don't it taste like holy water?
Like holy water?
Don't it taste like holy water?
If you like it please confess

Don't it taste like holy water?
Like holy water?
Don't it taste like holy water?
Bless yourself and genuflect
Don't it taste like holy water?
Like holy water?
Don't it taste like holy water?
Yeesus loves my pussy best

Ladies with an attitude
Don't just stand there
Don't, don't - don't just stand there
Don't just stand there, let's get to it
Strike a pose, there's nothing to it

There's something you gotta hit
It's sacred and immaculate

I promise you it's not a sin
Find salvation deep within

Kiss it better, kiss it better
Don't it taste like holy water?
Make it wetter, make it wetter
Don't it taste like holy water?
Kiss it better, make it wetter
Don't it taste like holy water?
Kiss it better, kiss it better

Don't it taste like holy water?
Like holy water?
Don't it taste like holy water?
Bless yourself and genuflect
Don't it taste like holy water?
Like holy water?
Don't it taste like holy water?
Yeesus loves my pussy best

Don't it taste like holy water?
Like holy water?
Don't it taste like holy water?
Bless yourself and genuflect
Don't it taste like holy water?
Like holy water?
Don't it taste like holy water?
Yeesus loves my pussy best
