The Lyrics

Okay. I'm burnt out trying to be funny. I don't get political like some of you guys, but here's one in that direction.
(Chorus)
This God is my God; I'll make Him your God
At every household, a door to door God
I've got to save you, and your sons and daughters
This God was made for you by me

As I was wrestling with my religion
I saw above me an off-white pigeon
And then it hit me in more than one way
My God just had to be set free

(Chorus)

I've talked and rambled to random people
Showed them my fingers, showed them the steeple
They show me back one, often the middle
My God needs good publicity

(Chorus)

Got a tomato while I was preaching
I just missed catching while I was reaching
It hit my Bible, now ain't that lucky?
My God is here to shield me

(Chorus)

Don't make a fortune doing the Lord's work
For more than once now, been called a big jerk
But I'll continue to pound the pavement
My God will force you all to see

(Chorus)

(Optional extra verse for the present time)

(There is a judge down in Alabama
Who showed commandments and caused a clamma
He lost his job cause he's a fanatic
His God and state did not agree)

Rick, I still love you, but we need to talk.

I called. Your phone was busy, then I got put on hold.

I enjoyed that... still, God and politics: just shows, there's more than one way to piss people off ;-)

Rick, you might like these lines penned by those Eye-Balled nutjobs, The Residents. http://www.rzweb.net/app/lyrics/wormwood-tour.html#epilogue

Ah, Rick, I dunno. As a Bible thumpin' fundie myself, I see where you are headed with this. I managed to smile (even though I am upset with what happened to Roy Moore).

Sorry Rick, I was talking to a nice lady about my long-distance options. Just wanted to say good job here, well-paced and all. And I do still love you. But not in *that* way. You know.

Rick, if you use God's cell phone number, you'll have an easier time getting through.
The Great Karlando - November 17, 2003 - Report this comment
Thats true Mari, but the reception way up there is really bad.
Phil Alexander - November 17, 2003 - Report this comment
Reception can be difficult because they decided to use Azrael's flaming sword as a mast, which is all very well but when he's at the right hand of the Lord, you never get a good signal right underneath the aerial... Still, I guess He'll still have to use it for His 'net connection as they haven't cabled that bit of heaven, yet.

God's cell number is Et Spiri 2 2 0. Good secular gaze at what the other side goes through. May God smile on this and you.

Long distance says the disconnect is at your end.

Sorry, I had long converstion with God this morning. So the line is free. Very Good.

I got a call from God this afternoon. He wanted me to switch to AT&T. I could be wrong, those people told me they were God before.

What did I think of this parody? In the words of the immortal -- though one of the above commenters might disagree -- Harry Chapin, "Lord, Lord, Lord, she was all right."

I can definitely tell you live in the Bay Area :-). There aren't enough songs about these freaks! And I was equally amused by the commentary that followed... Does this mean I keep hanging up on God when He calls? no wonder my life sucks...
Rick D - November 18, 2003 - Report this comment
Thanks Leah. Do you live around here? I was also wondering how old you are.
Leah Lockhart - November 19, 2003 - Report this comment
I live in the East Bay... I'm 27, although my Mom still likes to embarrass me ;-)
Guy - November 19, 2003 - Report this comment
In the East Bay? Are you a mermaid or something? :D
Michael Pacholek - November 19, 2003 - Report this comment
"East Bay" is east of San Francisco. As in Oakland, Alameda, and one of Guy's favorite places, Berkeley. Also where Uhura and Chekov searched for "nuclear wessels" in Star Trek IV. Hey, at least he pronounced "nuclear" correctly, right, Georgie?

Actually, where they filmed the part with the whales was at the Monterrey Aquarium. A fine place to visit. Have you ever been to Golden Gate Park? It's crowded! Watching that movie I had visions of bodies lying all around that cloaked Klingon warship from people running into it all day.
Leah Lockhart - November 19, 2003 - Report this comment
Yes, the East Bay is land, not sea... I wouldn't touch that water with a ten foot pole! I won't be any more specific in case my stalker is looking at this page (J/K). I used to live near Golded Gate Park, and have been to the Monterrey Aquarium but never saw Star Trek IV. I bet five minutes in the park would give you some good ideas for songs!! And I'd love to stop by open mike night - I haven't performed since some drunk karaoke night in college when I sang "Hopelessly Devoted to You" to a bunch of horny frat boys. But I can give it a shot!

This song is really not funny at all - a lot of reilgious people can be very offended by this song! I only worship the one God that created everything before me - no mortal people, animals, plants or physical objects seen around me! It's the first commandment in the book of Exodus, and I never worship any false idols. However, it was nice of you to think of a parody of a classic Woody Guthrie tune. I checked it out, because I wrote a parody of this song called "This Land Is My Land", and a lot of people commented on it, it has gotten more votes than any other parody I've written on this site!
Rick D - December 14, 2003 - Report this comment
The only kind of people I was trying to offend are ones that believe so strongly in their faith, that they must foist it over on everyone else. This country was founded on freedom to worship as you please. I also means freedom to not be harassed in your home or on the street. I was mocking that type of person, not any particular belief (Or non-belief)

5-5-5, I like this version every bit as much as Melhi's version.
