It's Still Got the Joel you Need
Parody of "It's Still Rock and Roll to Me" by Billy Joel
(Joel 1:1-3:21; Revelation 9:3-9, 16:16)

What's the matter with the quotes I'm sharin'?
Can't you tell that your guy's too dry
Babe, I'm not some kind of old, drab scholar
Well, but that dude's from ancient times
Yeah, but you should try him out, baby, really
You can't just trash him till you've read him or you're silly
Yeah, the Bible doesn't have a dude named Billy
But it's still got the Joel you need

Once the man predicted Armageddon
Can you us tell that without a smile?
What he said back then was quite inspired
It's a concept we've been hearin' a while
Now it is, but it was new then to them, though
And, yes, verse 2:32's monumental
God wants your trust even if there's locusts
It's still got the Joel you need

Ohhhh, there was man between Hosea and Amos
And there's locusts in his famous scene
Maybe you'd abandon town, but you can't get around
What the Lord predicts in chapter 3
Ain't Armageddon extreme?

How about a prayer to fix our blindness
And deprive our arrogance?
Well, you should really read what Joel promised, baby
Would you just give Him half a chance?
Don't waste your money on your shoes, status seekers
You get more value from a sheep-shearin' preacher
Just pray, He'll save, that's great, anyway
It's still got the Joel you need
Ooooooooooh hoo!
What's the matter with that crowd I'm seein'
Don't you know that's the sound of tongues?
What did Simon Peter say they was doin'?
Said you're wrong if you think they're drunk
Go to Joel in chapter two - that's the one he
Told us we should look at 'cause Joel saw it coming
It's the last days - hooray -- verse 2:28
It's still got the Joel you need
Yeah, the Bible doesn't have a dude named Billy
But it's still got the Joel you need

Joel 3:2
"I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat.
There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people
Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my
