The Lyrics

Tammy Faye Messner, formerly Tammy Faye Bakker, wife of PTL founder and fraudster Jim Bakker, died Saturday. Jim and Tammy Faye stole one hundred and fifty eight million dollars from us, according to the prosecutor at Jim Bakker's trial...money that Jim and Tammy Faye stole and used to live a lavish lifestyle. Tammy died an agonizing cancerous death, just a taste of what is waiting for her below. Goodbye Tammy Faye, and good luck below!
Goodbye Tammy Faye
Though we always knew you're a fraud
Despite a mask of clown makeup
You were uglier than Maude

You spread it on like putty
And then lacquered in case it rained
Wore out a thousand trowels
Suffered carpel tunnel strain

And it seems to me when you applied
All that makeup on your face
That they put another shift on
At the pancake place
And on Halloween you scared us
'Cos all the children hid
A wicked witch without a mask
An ugly Captain Kidd

Homliness was rough
And rougher still on us who watched
The makeup created a super skank
Your mascara often botched

Up until you died
Aunt Jemima wanted you
The embalmer took a day
Steady chiseling your face to break through

Goodbye Tammy Faye
From your flock you stole a hundred fifty mil
Use it to buy back your soul from the devil
As you're burning merrily in Hell

Tammy Faye never stole a thing, and was as much a dupe of Jim Bakker as his parishioners. She may have looked ridiculous at times, and she did not deserve this. In fact, I move that it be removed, as a cruel slap at someone who suffered terribly, in more ways than one.

Geez! RIP, Tammy. No matter who stole anything at PTL, the organization stole a trivial amount compared to all the mainstream "Christian" "Churches" that have hijacked Christianity far more than PTL ever did. Jim and Tammy were just easy targets for a government witch hunt. Let's get a clue, people!
