LYRICS

Isn't Wasn't Ain't (in the Bible)
Parody of "Livin' Lovin' Maid (She's Just a Woman)" performed by Led Zeppelin and written by Jimmy Page & Robert Plant
(1 Corinthians 1:18-27)

There's some people who will tell you we can all be gods
Isn't, wasn't – ain't in the Bible
They go around sayin' New Age a lot
Isn't, wasn't – ain't in the Bible
I know Satan always tells a lie
No matter how good it sounds
Take a look in your Bible
You can bet it isn't written down
Purgatory, purgatory, wherever that is
Isn't, wasn't – ain't in the Bible
Man, there ain't no place for payin' off your sins
Isn't, wasn't – ain't in the Bible
CHORUS
Good and bad karma don't make sense to me
Isn't, wasn't – ain't in the Bible
If you can't remember who you used to be
Isn't, wasn't – ain't in the Bible
LEAD
Somebody says that there are lots of ways
Isn't, wasn't – ain't in the Bible
But you'll find out different on your dyin' day
Isn't, wasn't – ain't in the Bible

1 Corinthians 4:6
Now, brothers, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your
benefit, so that you may learn from us the meaning of the saying, "Do not go
beyond what is written." Then you will not take pride in one man over
against another.


David & Goliath
Parody of "Paperback Writer" performed by the Beatles and written by John Lennon & Paul McCartney
(1 Samuel 17; 2 Samuel 21:15-22; Ruth 4:17)

David & Goliath! David & Goliath! David & Goliath!
You've heard about 'em – it's a famous scene
Between the Israelites and the Philistines
The faced each other in the valley of Elah,
But the battle fought was a one-on-one with
David & Goliath, David & Goliath
From the Philistine army came a burly man
He was named Goliath, so you understand
This one was wearing just a coat of mail
But it was made of bronze and weighed 200 lbs.
David & Goliath, David & Goliath
As he challenged Israel to take the field
He was waiting 40 days and wouldn't yield
David came along, but he was just a child
With a sling-a-shot he went a-runnin' to him.
David & Goliath, David & Goliath
David threw the rock, and you could hear the sound
'Cause it hit the Philistine and knocked him down
Then he struck Goliath, and cut off his head
And he saved the day, 'cause the Lord was with him.
David & Goliath, David & Goliath

1 Samuel 17:45
David said to the Philistine, "You come against me with sword and spear and
javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of
the armies of Israel, whom you have defied."


Lions
Parody of "Signs" performed by Five Man Electrical Band and Tesla and written by Les Emmerson
(Daniel 6)

And Darius had lots of sneaky people giving him advice
And they didn't like Daniel and that was that
And they plotted to see him die
They said "King Darius, let's make a short-standin' law now
Here's what we'll do!
So if anyone prays within the next 30 days
To anyone other than you
We'll throw 'em to the
Lions! Lions!
In the den of lions!
We're talking 'bout carnivorous
Great big wild lions
Vicious golden cats
Don't you feed the lions!"
And Darius said "Anybody caught trespassin' this new law I have signed
Will be tossed in a pit with a stone on the top
In a den full of hungry lions!"
But the king just couldn't figure out
It was Daniel they were tryin' to get
But you know Daniel still prayed, even three times a day
Till they hauled him in under arrest
Oh oh oh
Lions! Lions!
In the den of lions!
We're talking 'bout carnivorous
Great big wild lions
Vicious golden cats
Don't you feed the lions!
Lions! Lions!
In the den of lions!
Talking 'bout carnivorous
Great big wild lions
Vicious golden cats
Don't you feed the lions!
"Hey you, Daniel can't you read?
You disobeyed the law, now the lions are gonna feed!
You can't change the laws of Persians and Medes!
Even the king can't free you!"
Darius said "Sianora Daniel, hope you make it through the night"
Hey, hey, watcha gonna do? Hey, hey, watcha gonna do?
And Darius went back to his palace and he fasted
And tossed and he turned on his bed
When they hauled away the stone at the end of the night
He didn't have the stomach to check
So he went to the edge of the cavern
He said "Daniel! You down there with them lions?"
He said "Thank you king for thinkin' 'bout me I'm alive and doin' fine!"
Woaah!
Lions! Lions!
In the den of lions!
We're talking 'bout carnivorous
Great big wild lions
Vicious golden cats
Don't you feed the lions!
Woaah! One more time
Lions! Lions!
In the den of lions!
Talking 'bout carnivorous
Great big wild lions
Vicious golden cats
Don't you feed the lions!
Thank you Lord for thinkin' 'bout me!

*NOTE: Pronounce it "Dah-RIE-us" when singing this song.

Daniel 6:16
So the king gave the order, and they brought Daniel and threw him into the
lions' den. The king said to Daniel, "May your God, whom you serve
continually, rescue you!"


Patients
Parody of "Patience" performed by Guns N' Roses and written by Steven Adler, Duff McKagan, Axl Rose, Saul Hudson & Izzy Stradlin
(Jeremiah 17:9; Mark 2:17; Romans 3:10-23; Proverbs 21:2)

I shed a tear 'cause I'm wishin' you would just
Open up your eyes
You still think this world's a sunny day now
There was a time when I thought so, too, but now I
See it's all a lie
There is no doubt it's not that way now
Everyone is sick, you know
And the world is not that kind
All we are is just hospital patients
There's a great physician, though
And if He healed the deaf and blind
Jesus Christ has what it takes to save us
It says in Jeremiah, Chapter 17
The heart is sick; it's desperately deceitful
Don't try and tell me that you don't sin
And that your heart is squeaky clean
'Cause you know every person deals with evil
Everyone is sick, you know
And the world is not that kind
All we are is just hospital patients
You can choose to take the cure
But if you don't, you'll end up dyin'
The choice is yours; it's you who's got to take it
And you can make it!
Ah, you'll never shake it!
But you can't fake it
LEAD
There's a doctor who can save your life
That's Dr. Jesus Christ
He's the only doctor in town
You know He don't want to see you stuck in the ground
And He'll ease your pain, 'cause that's why He came
You're never gonna be the same, 'cause He'll heal ya
Whoa! Yeah! He'll heal ya!
Whoa! He'll heal ya!
Whoa! He'll heal ya!
Just try Him!

Mark 2:17
On hearing this, Jesus said to them, "It is not the healthy who need a
doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."


Help Me, Rhoda
Parody of "Help Me, Rhonda" performed by the Beach Boys and written by Brian Wilson
(Acts 12:2-17)

Well, since he let me out
I've been out knockin' on your door
Come open it up
'Cause I'm the one that you've been prayin' for
Ah, Rhoda, you looked surprised (looked surprised)
But you didn't let me come inside
You gotta – help me, Rhoda
Help me get inside of the house
Help me, Rhoda! Help, help, me Rhoda!
Help me, Rhoda! Help, help, me Rhoda!
Help me, Rhoda! Help, help, me Rhoda!
Help me, Rhoda! Help, help, me Rhoda!
Help me, Rhoda! Help, help, me Rhoda!
Help me, Rhoda! Help, help, me Rhoda!
Help me, Rhoda, yeah, get inside of the house!
They were gonna take my life
And I was gonna be quite dead
But an angel came along
And he freed me, now I'm out here instead
Ah, Rhoda, you got the door (got the door)
But I'm wonderin' what you're waitin' for
You gotta, help me, Rhoda, help me get inside of the house
CHORUS

Acts 12:13-14
Peter knocked at the outer entrance, and a servant girl named Rhoda came to
answer the door. When she recognized Peter's voice, she was so overjoyed she
ran back without opening it and exclaimed, "Peter is at the door!"


That Daughter
Parody of "Black Water" performed by the Doobie Brothers and written by Patrick Simmons
(Genesis 29)

Well, I made me a deal with my old Uncle Laban
Read Genesis – It's in 29:20
"Give me your daughter; I'll work seven years for her
'Cause I love her so much, it'll seem just like days"
For that daughter, keep on toilin'
Workin' in the sun when it's hot and boilin' and
For that daughter, keep on toilin'
Workin' in the field for my Rachel darlin' and
For that daughter, keep on toilin'
Never thought about Uncle Laban spoilin' my plans
He was spoilin' my plans
Gonna get a wedding ring
But I think there's something sneaky about that man
And I ain't got no worries
But I hope these years hurry along
Well, it was Rachel I loved – didn't have no deference to Leah
Just want to marry that girl and go home
Yeah, but Laban switched them on my weddin' night
And then Leah was my wife
And I had to go work seven years more
CHORUS
He was spoilin' my plans
Gonna get a wedding ring
Then I think I'm gonna leave this Haran land
And I ain't got no worries
But I hope these years hurry along
LEAD
Yeah, I wanna pack my bags and leave this land
Uncle Laban's always makin' me change my plans
Change my plans, plans, makes me change my plans,
Uncle Laban, gonna scram since your daddy done me wrong
I wanna pack my bags and leave this land
Uncle Laban's always makin' me change my plans
Change my plans, plans, makes me change my plans,
Uncle Laban, gonna scram since your daddy done me wrong
(C'mon Rachel! C'mon Rachel!)
(Leee-ah! Leee-ah!)

Genesis 29:18
Jacob was in love with Rachel and said, "I'll work for you seven years in
return for your younger daughter Rachel."


Little Esther
Parody of "Little Sister" performed by Elvis Presley and written by Doc Pomus & Mort Shuman
(Esther 1-8)

Little Esther was the one
Little Esther was the one
Little Esther was the Persian king's wife
She risked her own life for everyone
Little Esther had to do what she knew must be done
Now in the days of Media Persia
Esther was the queen
The king was Ahasuerus
But Esther was a Jewess
And the best he'd ever seen
CHORUS
Now there came a man named Haman
The king's prime minister
He planned the destruction
Of all Jewish persons
But he didn't count on her
CHORUS
Now the king was in his chamber
But Esther came right in
She wasn't allowed to
But she knew she had to
And she saved us all from death
CHORUS

Esther 1:17
Now the king was attracted to Esther more than to any of the other women,
and she won his favor and approval more than any of the other virgins. So he
set a royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.


Don't Try (To Hide)
Parody of "Don't Cry" performed by Guns N' Roses and written by Axl Rose, Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagan & Saul Hudson
(Psalm 139)

Back in the garden
There's something that occured
Adam and Eve were naked
And hid from the Lord
But He knew where they were hiding
He knew what they'd done
You ain't the first to try it
So don't you run
Don't you try to hide
Where would you run to, baby?
Don't you try to hide
Don't you try to hide
There's a Heavenly Father who loves you
Don't you try to hide
If you will listen — Psalm 139
Says that there really isn't
A place He can't find
Where can you flee from His presence?
You know that He could still tell
If you ascend to Heaven
If you descend to Hell, baby
CHORUS
And even in darkness
There will still be light
And even in darkness
Still the night is bright to Him now
I know you're makin' your own bed
But it don't matter where you do it
'Cause even if it's in Hell, now
Still He'll find you there now, baby
CHORUS

Psalm 139:7-8
Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I
go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are
there.


I Found the Answer There
Parody of "I Saw Her Standing There" performed by the Beatles and written by John Lennon & Paul McCartney
(1 Peter 3:15; Hebrews 4:12; Acts 17:11; 3 John 1:3-4; Jude 1:3; Nehemiah
8:8)

1,2,3,4
Well in Acts 17, there were some folks known as Bereans
And they searched the Scriptures daily to compare.
How they could know truth from error
Ohh, and they found the answer there.
Well 1 Peter chapter 3, says we should play steady "D"
and make a good defense to anyone who cares.
Why we have hope in the future
Ohh, and they found the answer there.
Well now Hebrews 4, says it's like a sword, but the Word of God is alive.
Well, St. Paul ain't no liar, he said all Scripture is inspired.
And profitable to teach, reprove, and correct error
That's what he wrote in my Bible
Ohh, and I found the answer there.
LEAD
Well, St. Paul ain't no liar, he said all Scripture is inspired.
And profitable to teach, reprove, and correct error
That's what he wrote in my Bible, Ohh, and I found the answer there.
You can find the answer there.
Well I saw the answer there.


Acts 17:11
Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for
they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures
every day to see if what Paul said was true.


Be Like David Was
Parody of "Feel Like Makin' Love" performed by Bad Company and written by Mick Ralphs & Paul Rodgers
(1 Samuel 13:14)

David, when he'd sing about You, he'd sing about love
Psalms he used to write about You, and Your love
And if I have learned anything
From Thy shepherd David
I will seek You in the heavens
With my cryin' and my praise
And be like David
Be like David was, Be like David was
Be like David was, Be like David was to You
David, when I read about him, I see that he was
Someone who You said was after Your own heart
And even though he sometimes failed You, still he tried
I will take him as my example and hope that I
Can be like David
CHORUS
And if I had one hundred tunes in my head
I could not do any better than what David said
I'll be like David
CHORUS

1 Samuel 13:14
But now your kingdom will not endure; the LORD has sought out a man after
his own heart and appointed him leader of his people, because you have not
kept the LORD's command."


Ain't That a Miracle
Parody of "Pink Houses" performed and written by John Cougar Mellencamp
(John 9)

Well, there's a blind man – he's a beggar
He was a blind since birth
But to demonstrate the power of God
Jesus looked at him and spat down on the earth
He made ointment with His spittle
Then Jesus put the mud on his eyes
And when the man got back from washin' at Siloam
He was no longer blind
Ah, but ain't that a miracle? Yes, indeed
Ain't that a miracle? Now he can see, baby!
Ain't that a miracle? Totally free!
Anything's possible if you believe -- oh, if you believe!
Now the neighbors saw the beggar
'Cause they knew him from his previous occupation
Some said, "Is he the one who used to sit and beg?"
Some said, "No, this must be some imitation!"
But the beggar kept affirming that he was the one who'd been blind
He said, "This Jesus guy made clay, put it on my eyes and said,
'Wash and you'll be fine.'"
CHORUS
Well, the people took him to the temple
And brought in his folks
Took him up to the Pharisees
They said "Is this your son? How did he get healed?"
They said "We don't know!" Ooh yeah!
But they didn't even listen to the man himself
Because this world demands a sign and when it gets one
It just wants to stick it on a shelf
CHORUS

John 9:30
The man answered, "Now that is remarkable! You don't know where he comes
from, yet he opened my eyes."


Christians Doin' Music
Parody of "Listen to the Music" performed by the Doobie Brothers and written by Tom Johnston
(Psalms 96:1, 100:1)

Practiced in the basement each Monday
We sure knew an awful lot of tunes
But we had to find a way; we had a lot of things to say
What the music needs is a way to take the style
And change a word or two with some knowhow
Gotta get the message, put a song to it
We're in the world, but we're not of it now
Ohhh ... Christians doin' music
Ohhh ... Christian music
Ohhh ... Christians doin' music ... for the times.
There are words – you know better
Than the Word of God
'Cause you've heard them in your favorite song
We can take that, change it all around.
Oh, we gotta play that rockin' sound
If that all sounds good to you
And you see the way we see
There ain't nothin' this old group can't play
Grab your Bibles, pick yourself a line
Oh, we're gonna play it one more time
CHORUS
From the harp of little David
Playin' maskils and the psalms
To the crowd in Revelation
People praisin', trumpets playin'
While the world sings a song to God!
CHORUS

Psalm 96:1
Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth.


God, I Like About You
Parody of "What I Like About You" performed by the Romantics and Michael Morales and written by Wally Palmar, Jimmy Marinos & Mike Skill
(Hebrews 13:5,8)

Hey! Uh uh uh!

Never gonna let me go — never let me out of Your sight
Keep on listenin' to my prayers
Tellin' me that You will always be there
And that's true
That's what I like about You
God, I like about You — You really know how I feel
When I get shot down, you're around,
Showin' me you're truly real
Keep on listenin' to my prayers
Tellin' me that You will always be there
And that's true
That's what I like about You
LEAD
God, I like about You - You're never goin' away
You're the Everlasting One — yesterday, tomorrow, today
Keep on hopin' that where I'll be
Is walkin' with You in eternity — and that's true
Because You told me it's true
Because You showed me it's true
Because I know that it's true
Because I know You're the Truth (the Way, the Life)
That's what I like about You

Hebrews 13:8
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.


Faith Pt. 2
Parody of "Faith" performed and written by George Michael
(Hebrews 11; Romans 8:16)

Well, I guess it would be nice
If I could touch and see it
You know, I must believe in
A lot of things I can't see
But the Spirit of Christ
He testifies inside of me
That I'm a child of God, you see
That's Romans 8:16
Before you tell me
That I've gone crazy
Before you say there's no way to be sure
I've got to tell you
This information
There's one way to heaven
And I'll show you the door
First you gotta have faith
You gotta have faith
You gotta have faith, faith, faith
Faith! Faith! Faith!
Baby!
Some of the things that I have seen
I just plain wouldn't have believed
From anyone else
Maybe
I understand why you can doubt
The words a-comin' from my mouth
Until you see it yourself
You know, but Hebrews 11 says
Faith is something we hope will happen
It's evidence of things that can't be seen
And Romans 5:5 says hope like that will
Not disappoint us
And I know just what he means
He means we gotta have faith
We gotta have faith
You gotta have faith, faith, faith
Faith! Faith! Faith!

Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not
see.

One that you've never heard before from me
Even if we, or any man, even an
Angel from in the sky, oh no!
Should preach a different Word
Other than you've heard
Let him be accursed!
Remember this line – Galatians 1:9
Ooooooh Oh Oh Oh
And if you read in Revelation
In chapter 14 you will see
It's called Gospel that's everlasting
It's what is and will forever be
The Spirit says in the last days
That some will fall away
From in the faith, oh Yeah!
With consciences seared, givin' their ears
To demons and deceitful spirits!
Remember this line – Galatians 1:9
Ooooooh Oh Oh Oh

And all his dreams seem to come true
And he says, "Let us worship other gods"
Well, baby, it's a lie, too! Yeah!

Well, you really should know
About the wolves in sheep's clothes

If they do, remember I warned ya!
Ma-ma-ma-ma-matthew-a! Ma-ma-ma-ma-matthew-a!
Well, in Acts chapter 20 in verse 29,
Paul says that it's only a matter of time

Galatians 1:8-9
But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the
one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! As we have already
said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other
than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!

Done by the King of Kings, you know
Yes, He did so!
Jesus came to me in Matthew 9

God rescued me, Mrs. Protestant
Heaven can be entered just one way
Hey, hey, hey! Hey, hey, hey!
For God so loved the world,
He gave His one and only Son
That whosoever will believe in Him
Will not ever perish, but will have eternal life
God did not send His Son to condemn the world
He came to save, Mrs. Protestant
Jesus loves you more than you will know
Whoa whoa whoa
John 3:16, Mrs. Protestant
Heaven can be entered just one way
Hey, hey, hey! Hey, hey, hey!
And if you confess with your mouth Jesus as your Lord
And believe in your heart He was raised
From the dead by God the Father, you, too, shall be saved
Whosoever calls upon His name is saved
I'll say it again, Mrs. Protestant
Jesus loves you more than you will know
Whoa whoa whoa
In Romans 10, Mrs. Protestant
Verses 9 and 13 show the way
Hey, hey, hey! Hey, hey, hey!
There is therefore now no condemnation for the ones
Who are in Christ Jesus by His grace
And if Christ is in you, though your body may be dead
Yet your spirit is alive in righteousness
He died for you, Mrs. Protestant
Jesus loves you more than you will know
Whoa whoa whoa
It's tried and true, Mrs. Protestant
Verses 1 and 10 in Romans 8
Hey, hey, hey! Hey, hey, hey!

1 John 4:10
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

Yeah, they really got Him mad
He made a scourge of cords and threw 'em out of there
Yeah, they really got Him mad
He turned the tables on the money changers
Yeah, they really got Him mad
It must be pretty darn important
He really got mad!
He really got mad!
He really got mad!
LEAD
See? It's in First Timothy
The love of money is the root of many sins
Yeah, it's there in chapter 6
It says with food and clothing we should be content
Yeah, it says that godliness
Is not a means of seeking earthly riches
Yeah, its says that godliness
Is great gain when you have contentment
We really want that!
We really want that!
We really want that!

Matthew 21:12
Jesus entered the temple area and drove out all who were buying and selling
there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of
those selling doves.


Verynice City
Parody of "Paradise City" performed by Guns N' Roses and written by Steven Adler, Duff McKagan, Axl Rose, Saul Hudson & Izzy Stradlin

Take me up to the Verynice City
Where the Bible stops with a new beginning
in Revelation 21, yeah, yeah
Take me up to the Verynice City
Where there's no more pain and there's no more sinning
Take me home
A brand new earth and heaven that's what I see, but
I know Revelation's tough to read
But, baby, there is a place in there that I wanna be
I'll be there till the end of time
Everything is gonna be fine
All the Christians that have ever been
Will be livin' in the city New Jerusalem
You know, they gotta have a lot of room for them
They say it's 1,500 miles wide
And it's 1,500 miles high
CHORUS

They got the trees for healin' the nations
They got a river in the middle of the street
You'll never have to think about the judgment seat
Because the wrath of God is complete
CHORUS
Come home with me
Come home with me
Come home with me
Come home with me
After the devil's been thrown in the fire
Now we can all commence to start to praisin' God
We'll be livin' in the city comin' down from the sky
Havin' a wonderful time
What'll we find?
Hah!
It hasn't even entered your mind!

Revelation 21:2
I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God,
prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.


Love (Ain't Nothin')
Parody of "Long Train Runnin'" performed by the Doobie Brothers and written by Tom Johnston
(1 Corinthians 13; 1 John 4:10-21; 2 John 1:6; Proverbs 31:10-31; Song of
Solomon 8:6-7)

Down in First Corinthians
Chapter 13:1
Paul says it don't matter
If I speak with tongues
Without love ... I'm nothin' at all
And if I have the gift of prophecy
And know all mysteries
And I have all knowledge and a mountain-moving faith
Without love ... I'm nothin' at all
Without love
I'll give you the essentials
That's love and hope and faith
Now these three things abideth, but
Love is the most great
Without love ... I'm nothin' at all
Without love
It's patient, kind — not jealous
Not proud, nor arrogant
It doesn't act unbecomingly
Doesn't seek its own, and yet
Without love ... I'm nothin' at all
Without love
It's not provoked and doesn't
Take wrongs into account
Does not rejoice in unrighteousness
But when the truth comes out
Without love ... I'm nothin' at all
Without love
Oooh ... what would you be now?
Nothin'!
Oooh ...
Bears, believes, hopes and endures all things and never fails
I said it never fails
Without love you ain't nothin'
Without love you ain't nothin'

1 Corinthians 13:2
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all
knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love,
I am nothing.
