The Lyrics

This is dedicated to John Jenkins, who has been a friend to me although I have never met him in person, just through Amiright. He, however, is not one to say "oh well".
The first oh well, we safely can say,
Was that Jesus with donkeys was made to lay
Because there was no room in the inn
And making no room for Him, still, is a sin

Oh Well, Oh Well, Oh Well, Oh Well
Scorned was the King of Israel

We don't look up and see the scar
That was laid upon Him with nails driven far
To this dark earth he gave great light
But still we continue to walk in the night

Oh Well, Oh Well, Oh Well, Oh Well
Scorned is the King of Israel

We work our jobs and drive our cars
We shoot for success and we shoot for par
To search for things is our intent
And we have no peace, wherever it went

Oh Well, Oh Well, Oh Well, Oh Well
Scorned is the King of Israel

For things we sigh that give no rest
In Bethlehem there lay the Best
In flesh He came, on earth to stay
Until in the tomb they put Him away

Oh Well, Oh Well, Oh Well, Oh Well
Scorned was the King of Israel

But He walked out, on that day three
And mankind worshipped, on bended knee
They marveled at His sweet presence
And thanked God for His forgiveness

Oh Well, Oh Well, Oh Well, Oh Well
Scorned is the King of Israel

Then, as we race in our Accords,
Let's not forget about the Lord
Who gave His life for one and all
Take your headphones off and hear Him call

Oh Well, Oh Well, Oh Well, Oh Well
Scorned was the King of Israel

I hope there aren't any fanatical athiests on this website who will give you ones for being politically incorrect. Otherwise, I agree with this.

Excellent job of bringing an ageless Christmas carol into the 21st century. Thank you for the reminder of the meaning of Christmas. And thank you very much for the dedication – your friendship means a lot to me as well.

Royce - Excellent write and what JJ said goes double here. I somehow missed this during the Christmas rush I guess. You have reminded all of the true meaning of Christmas and if this is non PC then I like non PC. God Bless! And may 2008 be good to you.

This was Royce's last parody that she ever posted on amiright. It is so proper that she would praise the Almighty on her last published parody.
