The Lyrics

Slighty random, and not exactly one of my best efforts, but I thought I'd post it anyway.... :^)
This will fit to most versions of the original song, but here's a link to the little green guy who first made it famous.
Why are there so many foods that show faces
And why think they’re signs from God?
Portraits on fishes, proclaimed sacred dishes
When really they’re nothing but cod
Danny DeVito in someone’s burrito
Mother Theresa in cheese
Some people find them, religious connections
In lunches, their dinners and teas

Who says that every time a deity makes contact
They’ll doodle on your soufflé?
Don’t think they’ve thought of that, because it’s just stupid
But folk freak anyway
There’s Princess Grace in a handful of raisins
And Ghandi in slices of brie
Some people find them, religious connections
Because it’s what they want to see

Patterns all over the world
That’s all that they are it’s not magic…

I’ve got a great idea, I’ll open a rest’raunt
Serve fake face snacks of all kinds
I’d call it StarMugs, and get all creative
And blow all my customers’ minds
Profiles of Gaga baked onto moussaka
Well really, how hard could it be?
Then they’d all find them, religious connections
When they came for dinner with me

Lots of la-lov-erly-dough, la lov-erly moolah for meeeee!

Great work, Wendy... serving you up some 5s!!! You just gave me an idea about a song parody b/c I too have had the experience with religious/mythical things. I have, for instance, a heart-shaped stone that I found that looks incredibly like a real heart. So many people have told me that if I carry it around and believe in it that it will lead me to true love!!! But that's nonsense- a stone over God??? Not for me...

Spotted the Virgin Mary in a grease stain on a store window. What about the guy who found Jesus' face on a cheese sandwich and sold it on eBay. Once had a potato chip with the Last Supper. It became part of my Next Supper. This is the best song of the day. Took some thought, and fits well with the original melody. I enjoyed it.

Good work, Wendy. When I was a kid I often saw Jesus Christ on a kitchen cabinet door. My mom saw a basset hound instead. It's all based on how you percieve things. All those people scurrying to glimpse the Virgin Mary on a shed - I've never met her so how could I tell? Franklin Graham arrogantly claimed that his God doesn't look like a 6-armed elephant. Oh yeah? Have you met God face to face? He can look like anything He wants to. Some Native American peoples visualize Him as a bird and some African peoples represent Him as a lion. This parody is really great, it makes you wonder about you see things.

Thanks for all the lovely comments, everyone - much appreciated, as always :^)
@Rob - I'm guessing that was your UFO parody? I read that one - nice work indeed!
@Have U Evah Seen God? - Yes, it always amuses me how often Christian art depicts Jesus as this blonde-haired white guy when every version of the Bible states quite definitively that he was born and raised in Israel. And, to be honest, if whatever God IS officially In Charge is so amazing and all-powerful, I'd personally be quite disappointed if he just turned out to be a beardy old guy in flowing robes. Shows a distinct lack of imagination, when instead you could be - oh, I dunno, a huge red dragon, a big swirling ball of rainbow lightning bolts - heck, the list is endless!
