"This God is My God"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

This God is my God.
He isn't your god.
It's fair to warn you
That He doesn't like you
'Cuz He's prone to torture
Got you where He wants you
My God will smite you, verily

There's no use running
Or begging for mercy,
There's no use hiding
That makes Him angry
My God will spank you
And call you "Sally"
My God will smite you, verily.

My God will give you
A purple nurple
Like none before it
And He'll pluck your eyes out
Put a red hot poker
To your nether regions
My God will smite you, verily.
(I'm glad my God hates you not me!)

Wow! How 'bout that! "This God Is My God" by Rick Duncan, and "This God is My God" by Melhi! LOL! ;-)

I was wondering who kept doing that "Sally" thing -- YOW! Great stuff. Quite different from Rick's, and obviously a coincidence, which happens ALL THE TIME.
Johnny D - October 06, 2004 - Report this comment
I know, Claude, I know it's just a coincidence, I just found it to be a hilarious and whimsical coincidence, worthy of a "Wow" and an "LOL", that's all. And you are correct, Claude - Rick's version and Melhi's version are very different from each other.

Goddam funny. Extra kudos for working "verily" into a song.
Ingeborg S. Nordén - October 06, 2004 - Report this comment
Even though I don't agree with the theology in this song, no one's religion deserves to be misrepresented or mocked that way. 5-3-4...
Melhi - October 06, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks Johnny D., Phil, Arwen, AshKicksAss, Rick, Claude and John B.! I'm really glad you liked it! (I was worried it might go completely the other way.)

Rick, I remembered the gist of your parody, but I had forgotten that you'd used this tune and the same title! :/ VERY funny stuff -- even funnier now that I'm imagining you out there recruiting victims for MY God. Hee hee!

Reminds me of an old Saturday Night Live sketch from years ago called "A Boy and His God", in which this teenage boy is suddenly visited by a booming, disembodied voice that identifies itself as THE GOD ZEUS. Well, Zeus tells the kid that they're a team, and to prove it, Zeus uses thunderbolts to zap various people that were giving the kid trouble. Zeus keeps saying, over and over, to the boy, "Come on, kid, let's move our glands!" I think he tries to get the kid to hit on some woman, who rejects the boy's advances (which the boy made because Zeus said "Let's move our glands!"), and who is then zapped by Zeus. At the end of the sketch, the boy is getting fed-up with Zeus constantly killing people and ranting on and on about moving his glands, so the kid tells Zeus to go away, but Zeus says "You can't get rid of me, kid - - - I'm a GOD."

Thanks Ingeborg.
Rick D - October 06, 2004 - Report this comment
Melhi, the same thing happens to me. (You're right, Claude) Sometimes when people point it out, I go "Oh yeah, I did see that one". It's even more ironic when you look at the other one and see a comment you left. Just in case anyone thinks I'm miffed, or gloating, I'm not. I just like to give credit when someone else gets a title or idea first, (like I did for the one today) and get it back. When someone beats me by a day to a song that's never been done, that's a bummer.

This parody cleverly pokes fun at the people who do foolish things in the name of religion, not at God, but I still have difficulty seeing God's name used this way. I understand why other readers enjoy this parody, but I have to abstain from voting.
