The Lyrics

Nobody ever has asked the Pharisees' point of view, so I have put myself in their place, and tried to imagine how they'd feel of that fateful Pesach.
We've had too much of nuisance of Messiah candidates
And yet another came up and a lot of fuss he raised
He was but lowly carpenter, but David's family
He claimed to be descended of and preacher by his deeds
He didn't follow Mishna and his midrash was all strange
He read the law of Moses like a lawyer, what derange!
Like love your G-d with all your heart, so can you understand -
He's gonna cause us lots of harm, that resurrected man!

Now one Passover afternoon he was nailed on a cross
The Romans did the dirty job and Pilate was their boss
Then weird things happened in the temple, torn was parochet
Doors opened up just on their own, and candles wouldn't lit
We thought his gang would disappear like snow on sunny day
But they claimed he did rise from dead and they were there to stay
They blame us that we killed the G-d and we are crooked gand
He's gonna cause us lots of harm, that resurrected man

Don't know if he was fraud or madman, bastard or a thief
And Saul of Tarsus, one of us, has now become their chief
Even great Gamaliel told let G-d make out His plan
He's gonna cause us lots of harm, that resurrected man

His followers don't do the bris and mitzvot they have junked
They eat the pork and shellfish and the Law they have debunked
They say aloud the name of G-d and dress in flaxen wools
They pray without the tallith and think kashrut is for fools
They socialize with heathen and they claim Messiah came
They say just faith alone is 'nuff for everlasting fame
We have to act 'fore poop hits fan as fast as we just can
He's gonna cause us lots of harm, that resurrected man!

Susanna - A fine concept and much good writing. With no irreverence intended, I'm thinking of doing the story of Saul's conversion to the theme song of an old Bob Hope/Bing Crosby movie - The Road To Damascus.

*smile* I just imagined how'd if would feel on the other side. I have Abrahamic undergrowth in my family tree, and I tried to put myself in the Phariseans' place. The "weird things which happened in the Temple" in the second stanza are actually recorded in the Talmud.

A great original song which has seen only a couple of parodies here. Including another "Resurrected Man" and a song I wrote about Obama's "Cash for Clunkers" program. Interesting to get the view of the other side of "The Greatest Story Ever Told". The Pharisees, after all, were defending the orthodoxy of their time, and Lord's word as they understood it.

Patrick, I agree - this is a really nice song, and it is sad not too many parodies have written on it. I attempted to be really careful with the lyrics - it is so easy turn this topic into a Judeophobic rant. Yet the Biblical events give an endless source for spoofs.
