Parody Song Title:

"What Cost Your Quibble?"

Parody Written by:

Guy DiRito

The Lyrics

Deuteronomy 12:17 You must not eat in your own towns the tithe of your grain and new wine and oil, or the firstborn of your herds and flocks, or whatever you have vowed to give, or your freewill offerings or special gifts.

Deuteronomy 14:25 then exchange your tithe for silver, and take the silver with you and go to the place the LORD your God will choose.

God only asks for a tenth of what He gave you that is His to begin with. You can't take it with you. Those that tithe are always rewarded back and more of the Lord's blessing are bestowed upon them. It perpetuates itself.

Out in the world we're tryin' on our own,
Some have a smokin' part.
So now what's thyne it really don't belong,
Your dough's been made impart.

(Ah) The beast is comin' bestows the mark,
And when things fissle goin' out in dark.
It's what your leavin' other's 'fore you die,
With all your riches, hold trap, from His High.

What cost your quibble when you don't pay your tithe?
He you're denying, givin' His own up to die.
It's your life.
What of death alone?

Void of want on your gravy train,
A little season for their soup not giving,
You choose for self, rest left behind,
It's through His grace Himself your even living.

Oh, oh, oh, oh

What cost your quibble when you don't pay your tithe?
Don't go denying, givin' to your brother guy.

What cost your quibble when you don't pay your tithe?
In your denying, livin' not, eternal die.

What cost your quibble when you don't pay your tithe?
What cost your quibble when you don't pay your tithe?
What cost your quibble when you don't pay your tithe?

Sir Guy, MonSignor, you are so right about the ~Great Spirit of Generousity~ that follows us throughout our lives. I have been very blessed; and this only remind me to give again . . .

Alvin - Fine comment, thanks.

LCC - M'Lady, I always like to view my own glass as half full and I am most grateful for what I do have. All things on this planet belong to God. He just lets us use His stuff while we are here. What we do with it makes for a part of our image in God's eyes. Thanks for the kind comment. Tomorrow's parody will be of a much lighter note.

Wow, can't believe someone else knows this song much less parodied it. Great subness. If I give you a tenth of fives tribute, would we have to call you Melchesidick?
