Parody Song Title:

"Choosing My Religion"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Oh I
Was Hindu
Was Hindu but then - I read the Torah
I know I'm indecisive
Cannot choose but I tried

Oh no I'm so confused
I'm so confused

That's me in a quandary
That's me with a textbook
Choosing my religion
Trying to find one I like
Now I think I'll try Zoroaster

Oh no, I'm so confused
I haven't read enough

I thought I might be a Buddhist
I thought I might try some Tao
I think I ought to read more tracts

Every Sunday
I'm pondering on the power
Of Cath-o-lic confessions
Trying to keep track of my sins
Might be trendy and kinda cool

Oh no, I'm so confused
I'm so confused

Consider this
Consider this
A hint of Confucius
Or maybe this - Baptist
I'm always
On my knees praying

What if J'ovah's witnesses
Come knocking around
Now I've too much choice

I thought that I might be a Mormon
I thought that I might try Zen
I think I ought to read more tracts

The choices made me scream
Choices made me scream

That's me with a Bible
That's me with the Koran
Choosing my religion
Trying to keep up with God
And I don't know which god to choose from

Oh no I'm so confused
I haven't read enough

I thought I'd return to Hindu
I thought that I might go back
I think the Bhagavad-Gita
That that was just a scream
That was just a scream
