Head Over Here
Parody of "Head Over Heels" performed by Tears for Fears and written by Roland Orzabal & Curt Smith
(Exodus 3:1-22)

I watch a few sheep when I'm alone
My flock is out to pasture
But today I saw a crazy thing – a shrub that's in flames
Oh, it gained my attention
It keeps existing though it isn't burned up
Eternal combustion
I must investigate this new wild species of brush
Oh, it's flaming with fire, oh, yes, yes, amazing fire

Something's happenin' so I'll head over here
I'd better find out -- why it never was seared
Something happenin' and I tremble with fear
I don't think my heart can take this start, but, but
I'll go anyway, go anyway, go anyway

Amazing fire – I'm watching it burn (Yeah!)
It's not an illusion
It won't turn into ashes just how long will it last?
Now, now, now, what fuels its ignition?
(Hmmm … what's the matter with it?)
My mother and my father used to be in Egypt
(Lookee here in Exodus what chapter 2 says)
And me I was adopted
(But that was done when I still was a baby)
It's hard in Egypt land when you come from Abraham
(Lookee here in Exodus what chapter 3 says)
Oh, I should know

Something happened so I headed for here
I had to hide out – so I went over here
Some things happened and I spent 40 years
I don't think my heart can take this start, but, but
I'll go anyway, go anyway, go anyway

And this is my full disclosure
I'm not a-lyin' or out of my mind
Yes, and I'm -- totally sober

La - la la la la – la la la la la
La – la – la – la – la - la
La - la la la la – la la la la la
La – la – la – la – la – la

La - la la la la – la la la la la
La – la – la – la – la - la
La - la la la la – la la la la la
La – la – la – la – la - la
La - la la la la – la la la la la
In my hindsight
La – la – la – la – la – la
One little bush, one little man
La - la la la la – la la la la la
It's funny now
Time flies

Exodus 3:3
So Moses thought, "I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up."


Ignorant Song
Parody of "Immigrant Song" performed by Led Zeppelin and written by Jimmy Page & Robert Plant
(Romans 1:18-32; Psalm 14:1-3, 53:1-3)

Ah ah ah ah! Ah ah ah ah!
Ooh, we come from the Lord and the atheists know
But they did not want what their conscience showed

They hammer at your God – would drive worship from your land
They fight the Lord and sing with pride, "Tell hell that I am coming!"
Always seething, threatening us
The Holy Ghost would teach them if they'd trust

Ah ah ah ah! Ah ah ah ah!
Well, we come from the Lord and the atheists know
But they did not want what their conscience showed

They scoff and feel supreme – but Scripture tells the score
Of how they scoffed in times before -- we all should know the Lord
All these people testing God
Have always known down deep they just ignored

That attitude better stop
1:18 warns in Romans
But Jesus Christ can win them, babe
Despite of judgment looming

Woo-oo woo-oo woo-oo
Woo-oo woo-oo woo-oo-oo
La la la -- la la-la-la
Woo-oo woo-oo woo-oo
Woo-oo woo-oo woo-oo
Woo-oo woo-oo woo-oo-oo

Romans 1:18-19
The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.


Triune Godhead
Parody of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" performed by The Rolling Stones and written by Mick Jagger & Keith Richards
(Romans 6:4; John 1:3, 2:19; Galatians 1:1; Genesis 1:2; Hebrews 1:2; Colossians 1:16; Isaiah 64:8; Job 33:4; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; Luke 3:21-22)

God was at the Resurrection, God was at the Resurrection
There's a Tri-, there's a Tri-, there's a Tri-, there's a Tri-
Triune Godhead! Triune Godhead!

Well, in Romans 6 verse 4, well, it says the Father raised the Son
John 2:19 shows some more – about how Jesus did the raising
But Romans 8 verse 11 states that – the Spirit did so
I know those quotes – hey, hey, hey! That's what it says

God was at the Earth's creation, God was at the Earth's creation
There's a Tri-, there's a Tri-, there's a Tri-, there's a Tri-
Triune Godhead! Triune Godhead!

In Colossians 1:16 and again in John 1 it tells me – how Christ made everything
But in 1:2 in Hebrews and Genesis it seems to suggest all three
Persons did so – I know those quotes
Uh, hey, hey, hey! That's what it says

God was in the Great Commission, God was at the Lord's baptism
There's a Tri-, there's a Tri-, there's a Tri-, there's a Tri-
Triune Godhead! Triune Godhead!

When Christ sent them around the world
In Matthew 28 He said to baptize in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
In Luke 3 when the Lord was baptized, they heard God speak
And the Spirit dove – it flew, you see
I can't forget those! Uh, no, no, no!
Uh, hey, hey, hey! That's what it says

I can't forget the -- Triune Godhead
God was at the -- Resurrection
The Earth's creation -- The Great Commission
The Lord's Baptism -- I can't forget those!

Matthew 28:19
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit …


Casket Place
Parody of "Basket Case" performed by Green Day and written by Billy Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt & Tré Cool
(Matthew 16:3, 24:1-51; 2 Timothy 3:1-5; 1 Timothy 4:1-3; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12; Revelation 1:1-22:21; 2 Peter 3:3-18)

Do we have much time to live until we find
A lot of things are happening all at once?
Violent crime explodes – the Lord has many foes
Morality is low – they're proud about it

Sometimes I think this world's asleep
Soon we just might be history
It all keeps adding up -- I think I'm waking up
I'm not just paranoid -- I'm not alone

I went to great lengths – to analyze these things
It's just like back in Second Timothy now
I read through some more in Matthew 24
To get some signs when God will bring the first round

Sometimes I think this world's asleep
3:1 through 5, Second Timothy
It all seems bad enough – I think I'm packin' up
He might just tarry more – He might just come

Oh oh
Last days soon unfold – so you better know God
LEAD

Sometimes I think this world's asleep
Keep your eyes on the Middle East
The whole scene's getting rough – I think that backs it up
And I just can't ignore – the signs I'm shown

Matthew 16:3
"You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times."


Babel Babel
Parody of "Rebel Rebel" performed and written by David Bowie
(Genesis 11:1-9; Psalm 2:1-12; Revelation 13:1-18, 16:13-16, 17:8-18, 19:17-21; 2 Peter 3:3-10)

Doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo

We got some others in the world
They're not sure if they should boil us in oil
They hate – the Israelites
They say, let's go and unite
It's like reading the Second Psalm
It's like glancin' at the Book divine
The Lord laughs at their pagan hordes
The world roars at His warning voice

They put me down – and they all scoff
Attacking things that put them off
Babel, Babel – their former address
Babel, Babel – that place was a mess
Babel, Babel – how could they know
God's plans – they just move slow
Told ya

Doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo
We got the mother of all wars
We're just – not sure when but we're sure of the source
He hates -- the Israelites
He hates men sold out to Christ
He likes peace and he likes it false
He loves tramplin' on the Book divine
He's got plans and he plays his part
He wants war and he comes with force

He hooked the crowd – but they are wrong
Their crafty king – he put them on
Rebel nations – their forward address
Revelation – 16:16 says – it's
Armageddon – how could they know
God's plans – they just move slow
Told ya
Uhh!
Doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo

Babel, Babel – the Torah says
Babel, Babel – a snake's in the grass
Babel, Babel – why don't they know
God's plans – they just move slow
Told ya

Their former address – was facin' a mess
In chapter 11 of old Genesis
They got the -- translation of the languages
Now and -- news live and their cameras and crews
Who wanna -- be there when the battle ensues
'Cause they love distress
But the dude won't have success
Because he's facin' the best
But how could they know
I said, how could they know

So what you ought to know
The Revelation described
In chapter 19 long ago
Their man is doomed to lose and Christ defeats their troops
Because his forward address
Is a lake of regrets
Ooh – their faith is amiss
Ooh ooh -- so how could they know
Heh heh -- how could they know
Heh

Psalm 2:1-3
Why are the nations in an uproar and the peoples devising a vain thing? The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, "Let us tear their fetters apart
and cast away their cords from us!"


Going to Forget Our Bad Deeds
Parody of "Don't You (Forget About Me)" performed by Simple Minds and written by Keith Forsey & Steve Schiff
(Jeremiah 31:34; Hebrews 4:15, 8:12, 10:17; Micah 7:19; Psalm 103:12; Isaiah 1:18, 43:25; Romans 8:1-2, 9-16, 38-39, 10:13)

Hey, hey, hey, hey!
Oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ohhhhh

Once you concede your bad deeds
How do you know there's been atonement, baby?
Tell me, you struggle and doubt
Heaven could ever think you're righteous now, yet
The Lord's grace is real and it's strong
He knows our tendencies that we are working on
No change can pull us from God
After Christ gets into your heart, baby

Don't you -- go fret about these
Don't, don't, don't, don't
He's going to – forget our bad deeds

When you sin abruptly
Look God's way – you're never ugly
Grace keeps calling, grace keeps calling now, now, now
Will you recognize, please
Toddlers, they don't walk upright
They keep falling, they keep falling down, down, down, down

Hey, hey, hey, hey!
Oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ohhhhh

Don't you try and pretend
It's my opinion when it's His command
I'll quote -- Hebrews
8:12 first and then 10:17 – it's a surety – God's
Going to forget our bad deeds
How will you know? Glance here in Romans 8, He
Told you straight from the start
God put His Spirit there in your heart, baby

Don't you -- go fret about these
Don't, don't, don't, don't
He's going to – forget our bad deeds

'Cause He washed them white
When you called Christ's name
Yes, He washed them white
When you called Christ's name
And they're washed away

Forever washed away

Well, He washed them white
The moment you called Christ's name
When you called Christ's name

And said, "Lord, la-la-la-Lor-ord
La-la-la-Lor-ord
La-la-la, la-la-la la-la-la-Lord
La-la-la-Lor-ord
La-la-la-Lor-ord
La-la-la, la-la-la la-la-la-Lord
La-la-la-Lor-ord
La-la-la-Lor-ord
La-la-la, la-la-la la-la-la-Lord
Well, He washed them white
When you called Christ name
Yes, He washed them white

Hebrews 8:12
"For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more."


Grass So Green
Parody of "Vasoline" performed by Stone Temple Pilots and written by Robert DeLeo, Dean DeLeo, Eric Kretz & Scott Weiland
(1 Corinthians 2:9; Matthew 6:25-33, 7:7-11; John 14:1-6; 2 Corinthians 5:1-5)

One night something occurred to me:
God's real, but we're so fake
Who lives inside those stately homes?
Visit you, visit me
Search on Facebook – you can see
Other side always seems
Somewhere where the grass is green

Truth lies within that fantasy
But God's Word will not fail
He died to make us all a home
Why is the grass so greener on
Somebody's other side?
We think that stuff here all the time

Is it true? Could it be?
There's a place that you can't see
Gotta find how to reach
Somewhere where the grass so green

You read the Book and believe in Christ
You'll see the light – yes, you will
LEAD

Christ says the grass is greener on
God's side for those that find
Seek it and trust Him all the time
In Matthew 6:33
(And) First Corinthians, you can see
Verse 2:9 -- how we'll be
When we're with the Nazarene

Uh uh
Uh uh

1 Corinthians 2:9
but just as it is written, "Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him."


Straight Street
Parody of "Mainstreet" performed and written by Bob Seger
(Acts 9:10-19, 22:12-16)

I remember starin' when He called and said, Ananias!
It's time to get your courage up
There is this road in Damascus that you must go down
Got a rendezvous that's rough
Get along, Ananias!
You still must leave
You've got a job there prayin'
For that bloke you'll meet
Down on Straight Street, down on Straight Street

And he's called Saul of Tarsus
And I'll use him
He used to torture you in the past
But the man's gone blind
He knows he's Mine
Just you watch, He'll catch on fast

I'll take Saul to all the nations
So folks will come and see
The amazing grace of God
Found with empathy
Down on Straight Street, down on Straight Street

LEAD

Saul's blind, but even now
If you'll pray and only believe
He'll get back his sight
And you'll finally see
Down on Straight Street
Down on Straight Street
Down on Straight Street
Down on Straight Street
Down on Straight Street
Down on Straight Street

Acts 9:11
The Lord told him, "Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying."


Can't Buy Free Love
Parody of "Can't Buy Me Love" performed by The Beatles and written by John Lennon & Paul McCartney
(Acts 8:9-24, Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8)

Can't buy free love – love
Can't buy free love
A guy named Simon he met Peter
In the eighth chapter of Acts
He could do magic things 'cause he was
Into Satan through witchcraft
And Simon had a bunch of money
But he couldn't buy free love

"I'll give you all I've got," he said
"If you show me what to do
To make the power of God descend
Upon the ones I wish it to."
Peter said, "Dude, flush your money
Money can't buy free love."

Can't buy free love – and the Bible tells me so
Can't buy free love – no-dough sozo
Satan will keep folks buyin' things
That mildly satisfy
Till there at the point where finally
They've bought a great big lie
And lies can cost you more than money
And money can't buy free love
Owwwwwwww!
LEAD

Can't buy free love – and the Bible tells me so
Can't buy free love – no-dough sozo
Satan will keep you tryin' things
That God says not to try
Till you're at the point where finally
You wanna just plain die
I can't bear to watch you, buddy
Come and get Christ's free love

Get Christ's free love – love
Get Christ's free love – oh!

Acts 8:20
Peter answered: "May your money perish with you, because you thought you could buy the gift of God with money!"


You Gotta Go
Parody of "You Oughta Know" performed by Alanis Morissette and written by Alanis Morissette & Glen Ballard
(Ecclesiastes 7:5; Romans 1:18-21, 10:9-13; Matthew 10:28, 25:31-46; Luke 12:4-5; Revelation 20:10-15)

I want you to know that I have prayed for you
I wish nothing but the best for your soul
I know you're worried prob'ly -- you'll get converted like me
When it comes down to it there's a fear there
Cause you say, "Hell -- it can't be"
You should play poker, baby
You sure do make a really excellent bluffer

Those who call on His name will be saved by His grace
Cause He paid quite enough for you when, you know, He died
And every time you speak His name it's in vain, what a shame
Cause His arms are still open wide -- open wide -- while you're still alive

But I'm here -- to remind you of the mess you're in if you turn away
It's not fair -- to deny Him
And the cross and just think you'll get away
You, you, you -- gotta go

You say there's no Hell -- you're not evil
I'm not nice to tell you that you could go
If you forget about me -- you can do as you please
I ain't above you -- I'm a miserable sinner
But there's a path we must take
Now if we wanna be saved
And if you think it's a joke -- then you'll suffer

Those who call on His name will be saved by His grace
Cause He paid quite enough for you when, you know, He died
And every time you speak His name it's in vain, what a shame
Cause His arms are still open wide -- open wide -- while you're still alive

But I'm here -- to remind you of the mess you're in if you turn away
It's not fair -- to deny Him
And the cross and just think you'll get away
You, you, you -- gotta go

There's no one who can say that He sent them away
Cause an offer was made to you and you closed your eyes -- and you knew it
And everyone says that's not fair, that's someone else's fault
That's not appealing -- I hurt your feelings

But I'm here -- to remind you of the mess you're in if you turn away
It's not fair -- to deny Him
And the cross and just think you'll get away
You, you, you -- gotta go

I-I'm here -- to remind you of the mess you're in if you turn away
It's not fair -- to deny Him
And the cross and just think you'll get away
You, you, you -- gotta go

Ecclesiastes 7:5
It is better to heed a wise man's rebuke than to listen to the song of fools.


An Old King in the New Age
Parody of "Anarchy in the U.K." performed by The Sex Pistols and written by Paul Cook, Steve Jones, John Lydon & Glen Matlock
(1 Corinthians 6:20; Hebrews 4:14-16, 6:20-8:6; 2 Peter 3:9; 1 Timothy 2:4)

Quite loud! Ha ha ha ha ha ha!

I am in debt to Christ
And I am bought with a price
Don't know what I was but I know I regret it
I wanted this joy God supplied
Now I wanna please Him and our King
No doubts about it!

And our King's more than you say
He's coming sometime -- it may be
A really long time off or rapidly
The future greets men with shocking speed
'Cause Christ was our priest and our King
And He still is!

How many ways to God did you want?
Christ is the best – why use the rest?
Why choose the enemy? I choose John 14:6
I'm gonna believe in our King
That's the only way for me!

"Is this the end?" people say
What is with the huge delay?
But He's patient, why aren't they?
My God, He wants all you saved
Read Second Peter chapter 3
And then 2:4 First Timothy

Christ wants to free men like me
And Christ wants us free and happy
And Christ wants us free and our kids
You dare not miss – this – joy!

1 Corinthians 6:20
… you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.


Selfish Sheep
Parody of "Self Esteem" performed by The Offspring and written by Dexter Holland
(Exodus 16:1-35; Numbers 11:1-12:15, 14:1-35, 21:5-9)

La-la la-la
La-la la-la-la

They groaned at God for the tenth time today
They're packin' up – I think I should pray
Is this "game over"? I've lost my herd
They're lookin' back and say they'll desert
But I know I'm being used
As a way for God to guide people through
I know, they're sayin' I'm mean
That's O.K. 'cause I've got no selfish dreams – no way!

Oh, yeah-eh, yeah-heh-heh
Oh, yeah-eh, yeah-eh
Oh, yeah-eh, yeah-heh-heh
Oh, yeah-eh, yeah-eh

When I planned to go up the mount
I stayed there too long – they all had a cow
But this defection – brought me so low
They keep this up, God just might take us home ... today!

Oh, yeah-eh, yeah-heh-heh
Oh, yeah-eh, yeah-eh
Oh, yeah-eh, yeah-heh-heh
Oh, yeah-eh, yeah-eh

Then they say, "Moses, we want stuff to eat!
"And we wonder why was Egypt so bad?"
Then they say, "Why'd you divide the Red Sea?
"There's no water in this horrible land!"
Well, I guess I could give up on myself
But I really think we'd better just wait
The LORD is sovereign
The LORD who chose me didn't err
Right? Yeah-heh-heh!

Now while we're late -- just a little bit
We'll have a tour through a nice wilderness
Was 80 when I -- first walked out my door
If I'm 120 then, who's keeping score?
Now I know I could stay home -- but
That's kind of hard when it's written in stone
It ain't real fun, but I've gotta lead
I'm just a shepherd with real selfish sheep
Oy vey!!!

Oh, yeah-eh, yeah-heh-heh
Oh, yeah-eh, yeah-eh
Oh, yeah-eh, yeah-heh-heh
Oh, yeah-eh, yeah-eh

Then they say, "Moses, we want some real meat!
"Not this wonder bread He leaves on the land"
Then He sent – quail, but they died from disease
Then my brother wanted more than was planned
And my sis tried to sneak up for herself
But God really thinks it's better this way
The LORD is sovereign
The LORD, He knows what's really fair
Right? Yeah-heh-heh!

Numbers 14:14
And they said to each other, "We should choose a leader and go back to Egypt."
