The Lyrics

This religious propaganda was just ripe for a parody, here goes nothing.
(Earthquake drum beat and synths)

You're talking shit, talking shit kinda funky
Saturday night
Say the Lord coming back, but we can't see
How your "facts" are right
Laugh so hard I toot, cut the cheese
See you Sunday, And December two-three
Tweeeeeeelve

Ends tonight, tonight, tonight? No-ohhhh
You better say your rites
Tonight, tonight, tonight? No-ohhhhh

You're going down, going down, like a monkey
Ooh, Earth is flat, right?
Lord will pick us all up Saturday night, but it can't be
See you 'round Sunday night
It's like that Oral Roberts, gimme cash and cash, cash or crash
Or God takes me away from thee - Bull

It ends tonight, tonight, tonight? No-ohhhhh
Prediction isn't right
Tonight, tonight, tonight? No-ohhhhhh

To put some money in your pocket, you're not ready to learn
You don't remember 1840, our New Year's Day 2000?
So please pick up the Book, 'cause I keep telling, no one really knows
Except the Lord Himseeeeeeelllllf

Tonight, tonight, tonight? Buuuuuull!
Yeah, what you say ain't right
Tonight, tonight, tonight? Buuuuuull!

(Christians laughing hysterically solo)

You keep telling me it's the End of Days, like that Arnold Schwarzenegger film
You know that it ain't his only movie, that's kinda like this, Judgment Day
Hasta la vista, creep
You see, the lemmings fooled, now they'll never sleep
You drank a lot of beer, a bloody lot of beer
You really don't know anything, anything
On Saturday won't get out of here.

You're going down, doing down like Y2K
Ooh hope it's alright
It's all a load of a whack, that false proph'cy
Ooh don't you know that it's alright?
Laugh so hard I toot, cut the cheese
Let you know, another bullshit prophecy
Buuuuuulllllll!

Ends tonight, tonight, tonight? No-ohhhhh
Maybe I'll be the right
Tonight, tonight, tonight - ohhhhhhh

Please get me out a beer
Someone get me out a beer
I wanna, see what you're seeing, you're seeing
It might just help, get me out a beer

Tonight? No-ohhhh
You are wrong, ain't right
Tonight, tonight, tonight? No-ohhhhh

No tonight, tonight, tonight No-ohhhh
No on that December night,
You right? You right? You right? No-ohhhh

Good number of people have wrecked their own lives because of this, 555 million dollars in the bank account.
It's The End Of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) - May 23, 2011 - Report this comment
Real good! Like Max said, many people sold all their stuff and quit their jobs for an event that didn't come. Ya know, I first heard the word "Rapture" in a Blondie hit and didn't hear about this (C)rapture biz until I was grown up. I don't think that word is even in the Bible. Anyway, great parody of a great hit song by a great band - GENESIS (that means "beginning", get the irony here? : ) )

I didn't believe that "apocalypse" not even by a minute. When someone gave me the flyer about the Lord predicting the world's end, I was like "Okay, whatever!" Yeah, whoever thought up that prediction is full of s**t. He's such a quack and got everybody all riled up over nothing. They make that prediction so many decades and usually, nothing happens. We're still here, we're still alive. We don't even know for certain when the world would end. All we have to do is keep on praying. But great parody and a great OS to use for it. 555.

(SOTM) Yeah, I'm always very skeptical of any apocalyptic predictions, just because there'e been so many. Some people are just to gullable. Most of the people that over-reacted didn't even really understand exactly what "Rapture" was in the first place! Anyway great parody here! Awesome job!

(ABC) Apocalyptic rantings from Mt. 555!!!

This was a hilarious news story to make fun of Chris. There was even "Zombie Warnings" on a news channel in Canada. The situation was ripe for parody because everybody knows we're going to be dead in 2012 not May 23th 2010. GEEZE!!!

Nice work! Never heard the OS before but you made it work perfectly. Good job!

SOTM: I believe that Mother Nature is going to destroy the Earth someday, since mankind is always screwing with her, only problem is, the wrong people, like me, end up paying the price for what others do to her. But nice parody anyway, 555! :-) and my religion is agnostic....

(SOTM) This is one of the few news stories that I was actually aware about at the time, most likely due to fact that religion was involved. Nice parody here, not as insulting to Christians as I thought, particularly when you mentioned that only God knows when the world will end, that line gave you major kudos points. 555 for you!
