The Lyrics

Names are a mystery
People may have two or three
But I have all five names
Last one is brand new

(Chorus)
When you call my name,
My old one I won't hear
Oh, just say Esther please
Madonna's way back there
I need to move with time
I hope you will not mind
From now on you will find
That Esther is my name

I changed my name
Esther has higher meaning
Madonna's lame, I changed my name
Soul and feeling
You ask me why
I change my name so quickly
It's not a lie, you ask me why
My faith changed me

When you call my name
My old one I won't hear
Oh, just say Esther please
Madonna's way back there
I need to move with time
I hope you will not mind
From now on you will find
That Esther is my name

I've found new life
I've got a new religion
My sins erased, I've found new life
Brand new vision
My name is changed
It's like a new beginning
Though you're confused, my name is changed
You'll hear me sing

(chorus X2)

Just like a prayer
Kabballah took me there
Just like a muse to me
They told me how to be
So I changed my name
But things will be the same
I say my prayer
And Kabballah will take me there

Just like a prayer
They'll take me there
They're like a muse to me
Just like a prayer
They'll take me there
They're like a muse to me

(Chrous X2)

Hee. All these parodies on a topic I'd never even heard about before. (Perhaps I should be concerned that AmIRight is becoming my primary news source....) Anyway, nicely done!

Coulda been a lot funnier with a bit of work! :(
