The Lyrics

I wrote this in a last ditch effort to save my ass on a World Religion project for school. So don't think I'm a Buddha freak.
The Boddah tree is where he sat
And no he really wasn't fat
The middle path is where he walked
They called him crazy
How they talked

Buddha, Buddha, Buddha, Booya
Buddha, Buddha, Buddha, Booya
Buddha, Buddha, Buddha, Booya

Meditation
And Starvation
Bald guys dancing
Buddhists chanting
Monks in dresses
One confesses
To the Buddha
With no foodha

Not fried chicken
Or finger lickin
Instead just rice
And some head lice

Yeah!

There was no god
Or so he said
The people looked
To him instead
The basic truths
That he preached
Were the only way
Nirvana could be reached

Buddha, Buddha, Buddha, Booya
Buddha, Buddha, Buddha, Booya
Buddha, Buddha, Buddha, Booya

Meditation
And Starvation
Bald guys dancing
Buddhists chanting
Monks in dresses
One confesses
To the Buddha
With no foodha

Not fried chicken
Or finger lickin
Instead just rice
And some head lice

A fat idol (repeat until fade)
Yeah, stupid I know. But my teachers bought it.

An enlightened, or at least lighthearted, tune.

Thanks for showing us the Noble Truths. Quite appropriate, considering the name of the original artist.

Super parody... OK, a question for you: the story tells that Siddhartha was profoundly moved the first time he went out and saw a holy man in the street - what I can't help but wonder is if it really was the first time he'd seen a holy man then, a) how did he know what a holy man looked like, and b) how did he know there was anything special in being holy? No, I didn't think of that question: my 10-year-old daughter did :-)

If you meet the Buddha on the road, buy him a Starbucks Vente.

Minor pacing problems (a missing syllable in a line or two), but not enough to knock points off a triple-5 score. The Buddha/Nirvana link, as others have already mentioned, was a clever angle as well.

If you meet me on the road, I can tell you how you can retire in two years or less through the miracle of multi-level network marketing, with Amway.

You wrote this in trig class? Really? Not to go off on a tangent or anything, but I'd say that's a sine of things to come.
