Keep on Loving Ruth
Parody of "Keep on Loving You" by REO Speedwagon
(Ruth 1:1-4:22)

You should have seen a Bible book with my wife's name-y
There was something written
She could have been known as a Moabite boy's lady
But she switched religions
And the place we met I can never forget
A stretch of land Salmon my dad had stored up for his son

And though I know I'm a much older man
Still that don't offend her
'Cause she was once married way before then
And she's still so tender
Ruth and I met after her guy was dead
When she said that she'd follow and stand by his mother forever

And I'm gonna keep on lovin' Ruth
'Cause she's Naomi's single daughter, too
I don't wanna reap
I just wanna keep on lovin' Ruth
LEAD

And I said, that's the girl I'll wed
When she said, man, I'd love you to stand as my kinsman redeemer

And I'm gonna keep on lovin' Ruth
'Cause it's a Boaz thing; it's what I do
I am not a creep
I just wanna keep on lovin' Ruth (ooh ooh)

Baby, I'm gonna keep on lovin' Ruth
'Cause little Obed needs his father, too
I know talk is cheap (I know talk is cheap)
I'm just gonna keep on lovin' Ruth ooh ooh ooh ooh

Ruth 3:10-11
""The Lord bless you, my daughter," he replied. "This kindness is greater than
that which you showed earlier: You have not run after the younger men, whether
rich or poor. And now, my daughter, don't be afraid. I will do for you all you
ask. All the people of my town know that you are a woman of noble character.
