The Lyrics

fearin' for my health and feelin' cold
mouth is too dry to spit
hate this crucifixion bit
hangin' around
wearin' a thorny crown
roman guys and fridays
always gets me down

persecuted for the life i choose
soldiers appeared in throngs
said that i must come along
once was renowned
sermons preached upon the mound
roman guys and fridays
always gets me down

angrily they scream
here is the king of all the jews
as disciple, peter, snubs me
hungrily they scheme
and its an ugly plan they brew
runnin' up
they beat and club me

when the deed is done, they'll know the score
bible will spell it out
populace will have no doubt
hangin' around
wearin' a thorny crown
roman guys and fridays
always gets me down

Could you use scenes from Monty Python's Life Of Brian for the video for this song? Good stuff.

This is great! You know, I was hoping to read your parody during Lent, but oh, well. Excellent parody you wrote. BTW, reverting to your last comment from your "Elocution" parody, Christine is actually my full name, so it doesn't matter if you call me that. I grew up with that name.

I'm a song parody fan even with themes of the church but this smacked of disrespect
