The Lyrics

This is #5 in our Bible Series...If you do not know the OS, a low bit-rate MP3 can be found here

Some might say that the Pentateuch is kinda neat
Read the Song of Songs or praise ol' Saul's defeat
Look thru' maj' and minor Prophets
In the scriptures and you'll profit
But that book that follows Psalms just can't be beat:

May Pro-verbs of paired advice prove not verbose
May ol' Soloman a-bless you with his prose
Say that "hope deferred makes ticker ill disposed"
"Spare the rod; do not chastise - rebellion grows"

The sundry stanzas really are well-chose
Readin' couplets daily will allay much woes
"A fe-male with no discretion
May be like a swine adornin'"
"Like a constant drippin' is a wife who rows"

May Pro-verbs of paired advice prove not verbose
Many eloquent address oh it bestows
"Don't delight to lay with stunning harlot ho's"
"They with pride puffed, on their face soon fallen goes"

"Well a fool in his own eyes is wise it's plain"
These maxim writers said "Dry crust with peace is gain"
"If viewed net, birds aren't trick-ed"
Or read: "Be snuffed lamp of wicked"
Or decry "Gossipers confidence betray"

May Pro-verbs of paired advice prove not verbose
"May you demonstrate nobless upon your foes"
"Emulate the ants you sluggard" 'cus they knows
"Surely verbage that is nice - will wrath oppose"

May Pro-verbs of paired advice prove not verbose
May King Lemuel address you on beer's woes
Trust the wife of Noble Char-cter with your clothes
May Pro-verbs of paired advice prove not verbose !

I've searched the entire Bible and can't find "ho's".... lol. Nice "pair"-aphrasing. Three Penta,-take.

For the One Guy, who must have not realised his/her own personal proverb was contained in the parody : "Well a fool in his own eyes is wise it's plain"

I liked "A fe-male with no discretion May be like a swine adornin'". The whole thing is clever. 5's

Very well done. Your reference to the "He who spares the rod hates his son" proverb is especially timely as the California state legislature considers outlawing spanking.

A belated thanks to Airfarce, Moo, Pat and John! :-)
