Dancing With the Ark
Parody of "Dancing in the Dark" by Bruce Springsteen
(2 Samuel 6:12-23, Ecclesiastes 3:4, Psalms 22:3, 28:2, 30:11, 47:1, 63:4, 88:9, 119:48, 134:2, 141:2, 149:3, 150:4; Luke 15:25, James 1:23-25)

I read about King David -- when the Ark of the Covenant came
Got caught up in the moment
Why don't we just -- worship the same way?
I ain't often inspired -- when I'm just too absorbed with myself
Hey there baby -- try some music and it'll help
We can't start the choir
We can't start the choir without your part
Lift God's name higher
Even if you're not dancing with the Ark

My savior keeps gettin' nearer
Readin' the Psalms and I'm learnin' how to praise
James says God's book is a mirror
Wanna raise high both my hands like Dave's
And Iím betting bolder
Might just give a little jump like this
In Psalm 150 it's all there
And in Second Sam-u-el 6
CHORUS

You sing along with the oldies
Cause you know them so well and it's O.K.
But take a song that is holy
How come, baby, you're not so free

Stay in your seats with heads down
But when you party you're up all night
You say itís not the same Sunday
Hey, baby, you best read Psalm 149
The time to dance is happenin'
I think it's written down here, yeah, it's right in this book
Go read Ecclesiastes
C'mon, chapter 3, give it just one look

We can't start the choir
Sittin' down -- quiet -- in the cold and dark
Lift God's name higher
Even if you're not dancing with the Ark
We can't start the choir
Worryin' 'bout your linen robe fallin' apart
Lift God's name higher
Even if you're not dancing with the Ark

2 Samuel 6:14
David, wearing a linen ephod, danced before the LORD with all his might ...
