Jezebel
Parody of "Just a Girl" by No Doubt
(1 Kings 16:31, 18:13, 19:1-2, 21:1-25; 2 Kings 9:30-37)

Hey, I just painted up my eyes
And my clothes are a little big in size
Don't you think I need elastic stretch waist bands
My husband's forcing me to wear the pants

'Cause I'm Jezebel - I'm Israel's king
So don't tell me that I'm his wife
Yes I'm Jezebel I'm the one who really pulls the strings
So don't tell me 'bout equal rights
Oh ... I'm happy enough right here

The moment that I came from Sidon
So many Hebrews have had to run and hide
Can't do religious things that they hold so dear
It's not the little king that they fear

If they want to survive, they comply
Oh, I'm Jezebel, and the prophets won't preach
'Cause I put them to death when they try
Yes I'm Jezebel throw the Good Book at me
For unbiblical brutal crimes
Oh ... they have a lot to fear
LEAD
Oh ... I can make it myself, dear

Someone just rebelled
I just-a fell hear me yell
There's not much that's left of me

Oh, I'm Jezebel there has been a conspiracy
I took a plunge and I heard a crunch
Oh, I'm Jezebel, where's the rest of me?
Well, I've a hunch dogs just ate me for lunch
Oh, I'm Jezebel my skull's all I see
Elijah's won it's over and done
Oh, I'm Jezebel woe is me
My evil's done it's no fun perishin'*
Oh I've had it, I'm through
Oh It's sad but quite true
Oh I have a lot to fear

*NOTE: In this verse, the word "pershin'" should be pronouced as
"per-i-SHUN," so it rhymes with "ones" and "fun."

1 Kings 16:31
He not only considered it trivial to commit the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat,
but he also married Jezebel daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians, and
began to serve Baal and worship him.
