The Lyrics

Once I start something, I have to finish, so here's more Beatle parodies some of which I actually perform. You guess.
You say you can't teach evolution
Well you know
You don't want to know the truth
Your faith has caused some brain pollution
You're sure you know
And that blinds you from the truth

But when you prove yourself with Genesis
Thought and reason drops completely out
Faith just says you gotta be
All Righteous

You say you want to stop abortion
Well, you should know
That bombing clinics is no plan
You suffer from some facts distortion
Well, you know
You've got no right if you're a man

And if you succeed and every womb gives birth
We'll have another unwanted million on this earth
Faith just says you gotta be
All Righteous

You're always fighting prostitution
Well, you know
The clergy isn't always pure
There's some in need of absolution
You ought to know
The curse is better than the cure

So keep on preaching to choruses in the flock
Just stay off my doorstep please don't even knock
Faith just says you gotta be
All Righteous

Capitol Steps did this parody - but yours is far better. All 5s.

(ABC) Not a good choice for the contest - sorry Rick, but I'm gonna have to refrain from voting on his parody, as I am unable to be objective... some people can make anti-religion songs and make them funny (Phil !) but I think you failed on the humor dept. on this one... :'-(

As Picard said in "Genereations", there's plenty more letters in the alphabet.

(ABC) Hmm, maybe I'll call you "Tightrope Talker". Intense, dude, intense. 555 for this firey free-wheeling Freedom Of Speech frolic.

I agree with Merry--you've done a good job of writing what you think, but in this case, as in many others that people write, including me, this is not funny. It seems some people think "funny" just applies to what they agree with; I don't think it's a good policy to lump together very different acts like not believing in evolution and bombing abortion clinics, either. For instance, I don't believe in evolution, but I don't destroy property and don't believe that's the way.

This song has pretty much nothing to do with evolution, the hypothesis of Darwin after going through three joints, except the first few lines, so you picked a bad title. And since when does bombing abortion clinics have anything to do with Christianity? You, sir, are the one blinded from the truth.
