The Lyrics

Suggested by Guy DiRito's "Could Be I Should Try Tongue" http://www.amiright.com/parody/70s/billyjoel176.shtml Glossolalia is "speaking in tongues."
I was in a trance,
Starting rollin' eyes.
I commenced to moan--
Then some eerie cries.
But I didn't dance,
That's a big no-no.
The minister said, "Praise God!
Let him go."

Came it out: the glossolalia,
I was in a spell.
Came it out: the glossolalia,
Did it portend hell?

Oh, it all began with just one little trance
And ended up in incoherent rants.
Came it out: the glossolalia,
Word from above?

Was it the full moon--
They asked, as I tossed, flailed, yeah--
Shinin' high above
That caused my glossolalia?
Did it portend doom,
Meaning that God would nail ya
From up above?

I was loud, they say, as I cried and screeched.
The minister said, "He should be leeched!"
Then I gave a gasp; the last sound came out.
Then they started to thrash and roll about.

Came it out: the glossolalia,
They were in a spell.
Came it out: the glossolalia,
Did it portend hell?

Oh, it all began with just one little trance
And ended up in incoherent rants.
Came it out: the glossolalia,
Words not. Just grunts.

DKTOS, but I'm very impressed that anyone's even come across the word "Glossolalia", let alone used it in a parody.

Hey John, this is really good. Glad to have been your inspiration. I almost was ROFL but then I considered the subject and decided not to get that tempted.
