Mr. Uzziah
Parody of "Mr. Blue Sky" performed by ELO and written by Jeff Lynne
(2 Kings 14:21-22, 15:1-7; 2 Chronicles 26:1-23; Amos 1:1; Isaiah 61; Hosea 1:1; Zechariah 14:5; Matthew 1:8-9, 8:1-4, 10:8, 11:5; Mark 1:40-42; Luke 5:12-13, 7:22, 17:11-19)

(Spoken) Warning: King Azariah is called King Uzziah

Son of old king Amaziah he reigned a while and did right
He stopped reigning and he bowed out in disgrace
And don't you know it was too difficult to stay ay-ay-ay
Ruined by his attitude He has become unsightly
It's a pity on his seat his young son's sitting
Mr. U-zziah has leprosy today Hey-ey-ey

Mr. Uzziah please tell us why
You had to find a way to show off (show off)
For the priests of God
Mr. Uzziah please tell us why
You had such pride it made you show off (show off)
For the priests of God
LEAD

He ruled with a pretty face -- but he never knew his place
This illustration is for Uzziah and the nation
Can't be vain in the way we praise the Lord o-o-ord

Mr. Uzziah please tell us why
You had to find a way to show off (show off)
For the priests of God

Hey there, Mr. U -- with the priests you seemed confused
You cannot do what they do everybody yells at you
Hey there, since yer rude -- this disease will be with you
Took you down a notch or two everyone's appalled at you

(Vocoder) Mr. U-zziah -- Mr. U-zziah — Mr. U-zzi-ah

Mr. U., you lived and died but soon comes Jesus Christ
He's Jehovah, while descended from your throne, but
He'll revive all the lepers who will call on Him and choose His way

Mr. Uzziah please tell us why
You had to find a way to sho-o-ow off (show off)
For the priests of God

Hey there, it's the truth (right) if you need to see some proof (right)
Second Chronicles includes (true) chapter 26 for you

(Vocoder) His term is over

2 Chronicles 26:16
But after Uzziah became powerful, his pride led to his downfall. He was unfaithful to the Lord his God, and entered the temple of the Lord to burn incense on the altar of incense.


Come On, I'll Lead
Parody of "Come On Eileen" performed by Dexys Midnight Runners and written by Kevin Rowland, Jim Paterson & Billy Adams
(Joshua 1:1-11)

Come on, I'll lead
Come on, I'll lead

The LORD our God is great
So He sent us on the way to go
With a million starts and stops, though
Our fathers cried dragged along, complainin'

You've grown (you've grown up)
They're gone (they're gone now)
Now we'll cross that Jordan River
Come on, I'll lead
To our new life do right move right in
Or will you sin just like our fathers?

Come on, I'll lead
All us where God decreed
As He promised, you'll get everything
A new big address, fine crops, nothing less
Yes, I'm certain
Ah, come on, I'll lead

Come on, I'll lead

These people 'round here
Will be aroused like junkyard dogs by us
There'll be giants, too, that we're facing
But don't fuss (no never) no, don't fuss (not ever)
We have come too far to quiver
(Remember)
To our new life you must move right in
A new home that's yours forever

Come on, I'll lead
All us where God decreed
Aw, come on, let's take off and proceed
Here's the address, don't need GPS
Ah, come on, gents
Ah, come on, I'll lead
And, yes, you'll find rest, finally happiness
Ah, come on, gents
Ah, come on, I'll lead
Please

(Come on, I'll lead you to our land)
(Come on, I'll lead you, move right in)
Josh-u-a knows, how you must go (They're not -- too rough for you, luv)
So I'll lead
Said
Come on, I'll lead (Come on, I'll lead you to our land) (You've grown)
These dangers are real but I don't -- have to fear
(Come on, I'll lead you, move right in) (Don't moan)
Now let's cross that Jordan river (They're not -- too rough for you, luv)
It's bound to be strange
Let's head
To a new life you'll like -- move right in (Come on, I'll lead you to our land)
(Come on, I'll lead you, move right in)
They're not -- too rough for you, luv)

Come on, I'll lead
All us where God decreed
As He promised, you'll get everything
A new big address, fine crops, nothing less
It's your duty
Ah, come on, I'll lead
Ah, come on, I'll lead
All us where God decreed
As He promised, you'll get everything
A new big address, oh, by God, we've been blessed
Well, get ready
On, I'll lead

Come on, I'll lead
Whoa oh-oh oh
God decreed
Whoa ho ho ho
Ah, come on, ah, come on
Everything

Joshua 1:6
"Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them."


Flew Off the Handle
Parody of "Too Hot to Handle" performed by UFO and written by Pete Way & Phil Mogg
(1 Kings 19:19-21; 2 Kings 2:1-25, 3:11-8:15, 9:1-13, 13:14-21)

Was guiding an ox plow, on a boring ride
When my major break came
Swept up by the prophet they called Elijah
I'd never be the same

Eljiah threw threw off -- baby threw off his mantle
And I'm the dude who got mmmm -- who got his mantle

He went up on high and really soon I
Was being mocked by some bullies
But I ain't no Kojak and I won't take no flack
Those kids would get chased

Yeah, I flew flew off -- baby flew off the handle
And all the dudes who mocked baby soon got dismantled

Well, Elijah bowled you over
Turn around I'll do it again
I'm Elisha -- we're both prophets
Different ones with similar names

LEAD

Well, Elijah bowled you over
Tell you what I'll do bigger things
I'm Elisha -- we're both prophets
In the First and Second Book of Kings

When I'm in your town don't fool around
I may start actin' strange
Just like the story I shared with boys and bears
So keep out of stupid gangs

'Cause I'm the dude who got baby -- who got the mantle
And I'm a dude through God mmmm who's often gentle
But I'm a dude who got crazy and flew off the handle
And I refuse to be mocked by rude, rotten vandals

1 Kings 19:19
So he departed thence, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth: and Elijah passed by him, and cast his mantle upon him.


Stressin' Out
Parody of "Steppin' Out" performed and written by Joe Jackson
(Exodus 14:1-31)

Now
Commence to cross the wind blows hard tonight
The rushing tides that covered up the land subside
Even fish it seems go hide
Look, it's dry Surprise!

We
So tired of all the bondage in our lives
Have no more days to work as slaves 'cause God arrived
Get it through your heart and stride
To the other side

We were -- stressin' out -- until tonight -- Israelites
You were -- stressin' out -- until tonight -- Israelites

We
Are stunned but gettin' out before high tide
We'll leave the pyramids and the Pharaoh behind
Don't you run -- the water's fine
Step in now -- you'll like

True
The reckless king pursued for miles and miles
And if he yells "Attack!" just turn to me and smile
He'll be dead in just a while
Israel, follow me

We were -- stressin' out -- until tonight -- Israelites
You were -- stressin' out -- until tonight -- Israelites

We ain't -- stressin' out Israelties -- enjoy the ride
You ain't -- stressin' out Israelties -- enjoy the ride
We ain't -- stressin' out Israelties -- enjoy the ride
You ain't -- stressin' out Israelties -- enjoy the ride

Exodus 14:13
But Moses said to the people, "Do not fear! Stand by and see the salvation of the Lord which He will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see them again forever.


You Fleshly Thing
Parody of "You Sexy Thing" performed by Hot Chocolate and written by Errol Brown & Tony Wilson
(1 Corinthians 5:9-13, 6:12; Romans 2:19-24, 8:5-13; 1 John 2:3-6, 5:3-5; 1 Peter 2:11-12)

"I've been feeling spiritual. Where's the blonde?"
You said these things (said these things, you)
But I don't feel it's biblical -- if you're carrying on doin' fleshly things

When you do dumb stuff daily
How will the world believe in you?
How will they know that Jesus loves them madly?
How will they know Christ's in your heart? Sadly
If you say that you're one of His holy people
How you apply it socially makes it tough to see

"I've been feeling spiritual. Where's the bar?"
You said these things (said these things, you)
But I've been feeling spiritual -- since I came to the Lord two separate things

When you get drunk in front of strangers
How can you show them Jesus' love?
Did you know your life is on display for
Even those you never might have prayed for?
Every day people judge us by our actions
Now you're drivin' recklessly give the Lord the keys

"I've been feeling spiritual. Where's the bong?"
You said these things (said these things, you)
But I've been feeling cynical -- since you came along -- and you said these things

Ohhhhhh
Let's read (You fleshly thing)
First Corinthians (You check these things)
Verse 5:11 and 6:12, darlin' (You check these things)
Ohhh oh-ohh -- check and see (You fleshly thing)

If you say that you're one of His holy people
Read First John 2:6 to me -- live it literally

I've been feeling lyrical. Here's a song
To address these things (address these things with you)
I may be satirical but I ain't wrong -- you fleshly thing

Ohh! Oh! Oohh!
Trust me!
Let's read, darlin'
In Romans 8:12, 13, baby
Ah ha-ahh!
Just check and see!
Ahhhhhhh!
Just check and see! (Check these things, you fleshly thing, you)
Listen, baby (Check these things, you fleshly thing, you)
Read Romans verse 2:24, yeah (Check these things, you fleshly thing, you)
Ahhh ha ha yea-eh (Check these things, you fleshly thing, you)
Walk the way that's holy (Check these things, you fleshly thing, you)
Keep from stumbling, darlin' (Check these things, you fleshly thing, you)
Keep from stumbling, baby (Check these things, you fleshly thing, you)
Ahhh ha ha yeah (Check these things, you fleshly thing, you)

1 Peter 2:11-12
Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul, having your conduct honorable among the Gentiles, that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify God in the day of visitation.


Book of Life
Parody of "Walk of Life" performed by Dire Straits and written by Mark Knopfler
(Revelation 3:5, 13:8, 17:8, 20:12, 20:15, 21:27; Philippians 4:3; Psalm 69:28; Luke 10:20)

Woo hoo ah woo hoo
Ah woo hoo

Here comes Johnny bringing scrolls he's holding
He got illuminated, some might say
Here comes Johnny saying, I got a vision
Found in the Bible on the latest page
It's got real action and raw emotion
Oh yeah, the boy can say
The Revelation he wrote it
And Terminator's right 'bout Judgment Day
Dude, it's wrong about the mean and ugly robot
But still there's someone that arrives
Yeah, have you been logged -- into the Book of Life?
Yeah, into the Book of Life

Ah woo hoo!

Here comes Johnny gonna tell what the Lord said
And He tells us what ensues
He'll come down here with the power and the glory
Bad deeds He'll not excuse
He wants compassion, He wants devotion
Oh yeah, and boisterous faith
But hesitation revolts Him
He's turning out the lights at the end of the day
But some will have a single-minded moment
And choose the Son of God tonight
Yeah, those who were logged into the Book of Life
Yeah, into the Book of Life

Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm mm
Woo hoo hoo

Here comes Johnny bringing holy warning:
Hey, Babylonia, take heed what I say
Here comes Johnny sayin' my God is comin'
Now you're in trouble gonna make you pay
He saw your actions, He saw your motives
Oh yeah, and choices made
And yet He gave us the notion
Eternity's a nice time if you're saved
And after all Messiah did upon the cross
He saves us from the coming trouble and the strife
If you've been logged -- yeah, into the Book of Life
Mm into the Book of Life

Ah woo hoo
Woo hoo hoo
Woo hoo hoo
Ah woo hoo
Woo hoo hoo
Yeah, into the Book of Life

Revelation 20:12
And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.


Temple Physician
Parody of "Pinball Wizard" performed by Elton John and written by Pete Townshend
(Isaiah 35:5-6; Matthew 11:4-5, 21:14)

Ever since I was a young boy I prayed in the synagogue
That somehow the Messiah might rush to save us all
But I ain't seen nothing like Him in any Jerusalem hall
The deaf, dumb, and blind came -- the Lord just healed them all

This man's got an attitude -- He's not part of the regime
Healin' all the lepers -- although they're unclean
He's breakin' men's traditions -- that didn't count at all
The deaf, dumb, and blind came -- the Lord just healed them all

He's a temple physician; a pastor to the sick
A temple physician -- one touch just does the trick

How do you think He does it? I don't know!
Some say He's no good

Oh, men came from John the Baptist when he was puzzled as well
Are you Christ, they asked Him, please say so then Yourself
All Jesus said was, Relay the miracles you saw
The deaf, dumb, and blind came -- the Lord just healed them all

It can't be denied there's always been a chance
I know every scripture is He gonna be that Man?

Oh oh-oh-oh can't escape
Oh oh-oh-oh can't escape
Oh oh-oh-oh can't escape
Oh oh-oh-oh can't escaa-aaape

Even Sabbath Day He's available -- He don't need to rest
His disciples believe in Him -- and we just must confess
If God's savin' sick and sinners like them then we should call
The deaf, dumb, and blind came -- The Lord just healed them all

He's a temple physician it has to be addressed
A temple physician ones such as us He'll bless

He's a temple physician we surely can't ignore
A temple physician He's something special or
He's something more -- He's something more

The Romans wanted Herod to be king
But God just handed down Israel's crown to Him
To Him
To Him

Matthew 11:4-5
Jesus replied, "Go back and report to John what you hear and see: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor."


The Ballad of Peter Plungin' Ahead
Parody of "The Ballad of Peter Pumpkinhead" performed by XTC and written by Andy Partridge
(Matthew 14:22-33, 16:13-20; Mark 8:27-30; John 21:1-24)

Let's dig in!
Peter plunged ahead then looked down
Treading water and splashing 'round
Guess he'd started to doubt the Lord
Won't do that again that's for sure

But he made so many memories
Off the deep end on the Sea of Galilee
Hooray for Peter plungin'
The day that Peter plunged ahead
Ohh-oh my

Peter plunged ahead of them all
And he called Jesus "Son of God"
When he spoke it amazed the group
Peter simply had told the truth

But he made so many men believe
Often Peter he wore his heart on his sleeve
Hooray for Peter plungin' (Hooray!)
The way that Peter plunged ahead
Ohh-oh my

Peter plunged ahead with no shame
Other friends would confirm this claim
Once they fished and they sailed all night
Things were really dead then a guy out yonder called out advice
But they say things ended swimmingly
After Peter noticed Jesus on the beach
Make way for Peter plungin'
Make way for Peter plungin' ahead

Peter's punishment wasn't good
Had him nailed to a cross of wood
He died willingly like His King
Hanging there they put him upside down
Like an awful, low-life thing
But he made so many men believe
Other people who would seek God on their knees
Hooray for Peter plungin'
The way that Peter plunged ahead

Hooray for Peter plungin' (Hooray!)
Make way for Peter plungin'
Give praise for Peter plungin' ahead

Oh my, oh my, no one could take his love for Christ, oh

John 21:7
Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord!" Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment (for he had removed it), and plunged into the sea.


Bartholomew
Parody of "Bark at the Moon" performed by Ozzy Osbourne and written by Ozzy Osbourne, Jake E. Lee & Bob Daisley
(Matthew 10:3; Mark 3:18; Luke 6:14; Acts 1:13; John 1:45-50, 21:2)

Jesus makes disciples -- taking some He's set aside
Agents to join Him He's determined 12 are right
Then, when He's found who He's looking for
Lists of them all have our dear friend
Bartholomew
Ha ha ha ha ha

Years later those men -- bearing witness came to save
Now He has risen -- miracles to them He gave
Those that love Jesus took Him far
Christians in Armenia revere him
Bartholomew
Hey-eyyy, yeah, Bartholomew

That person there was skinned alive, they claim
He taught that Christ was Son of God
The skeptics murdered him and thought they'd won
But history turned and proved them wrong
So wrong ooh yeah, baby

Now many fellows link him with Nathanael
He's found with Philip -- numerous times God names the 12
Those that have questions look in John
Check chapter one and compare with
Mark, Matthew, and Luke

Hey-eyyy, yeah, Bartholomew
Hey-ey, yeah, Bartholomew!
Oh, oh, yeah, Bartholomew!
Owwwwww

Matthew 10:2-4
Now the names of the twelve apostles are these: The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; and James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; Simon the Zealot, and Judas Iscariot, the one who betrayed Him.


Girl Got Religion
Parody of "Girls Got Rhythm" performed by AC/DC and written by Angus Young, Malcolm Young & Bon Scott
(James 1:26-27, 2 Corinthians 5:17, John 3:3, Romans 8:5-17)

I've been around the world -- I've seen material girls
They wanted things bought -- but my lady seeks God
She's doin' what God likes -- not the online elite
She don't want to start to backslide -- and she watches how she speaks

Swearin' gets her uptight -- she says the Bible's right
She loves to quote it now
Knows all about it can't live without it

The girl got religion (girl got religion)
The girl got religion (girl got religion)
It's not a rash decision (rash decision)
The girl got religion
Oh!

This life can be so grand so much more than we planned
She'd be the first to agree she says "His plan surprised me"
"I was feelin' aimless -- vacant and bored
"And now I want to take trips -- to help the Third World poor
"You know, Good News ain't cheap but it ain't too steep
"I was bought with His blood
"No doubts about Him -- can't live without Him"

The girl got religion (girl got religion)
The girl got religion (girl got religion)
She's not a lax, weak Christian (lax, weak Christian)
The girl got religion
Oh!

She knows He don't like sin -- and since she let Him in
He guides her with His love
No doubts about Him, can't live without Him

The girl got religion (girl got religion)
The girl got religion (girl got religion)
She's not a patsy or pigeon (patsy or pigeon)
The girl got religion (girl got religion)
You know, she really got religion (girl got religion)
She got the facts He's risen! (facts He's risen)
Wants to go with Him (wants to go with Him)
The girl got religion (girl got religion)

James 1:26-27
If anyone thinks himself to be religious, and yet does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this man's religion is worthless. Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.


Apologetics
Parody of "Come and Get It" performed by Badfinger and written by Paul McCartney
(1 Peter 3:15, 1 Corinthians 2:4-5, 2 Corinthians 11:1)

If you wanted serious apologetics
Mm mm mm mm mm -- take a Bible class
If you wanted plain advice I can give it
But it's in a parody so it may get laughs
Did I hear you say that I must be a quack
Will you walk away from the truth if it's funny?
If you wanted lyrics with college credits
Then you'd better hurry off and go to class

If you wanted lyrics with homiletics
Mm mm mm mm mm baby, mine have that
If you wanted edified I can dig it
Then you needn't worry 'cause we'll stay on track
Did my lyrics stray from the trusty old path
Will you walk away from the truth if it's funny?
Sorry!
If you wanted serious apologetics
Then you'd better hurry off and go to class
You'd better hurry off and go to class

Ooh ooh ooh ooh truth can be funny
Sorry!
If you wanted serious apologetics
Then we'd better hurry up and close this fast
You'd better hurry 'cause we're closin' fast
You'd better hurry 'cause we're closin' fast

2 Corinthians 11:1
I hope you will put up with me in a little foolishness. Yes, please put up with me!

I'm-a so glad You're kind now
Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa!

Colossians 1:13-14
For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
