Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

The biblical account of the events in "We Will Stone You" can be found in Acts 6:1-8:3. There, Stephen is introduced to Bible readers as among the first Deacons and becomes the first Christian martyr. The biblical account of the events in the sister song "We Are the Champions" (parody unnamed) can be found in Acts 9:1-9. The entire song is sung by Roman Zealot Saul who, during the parody, becomes the Apostle Paul, who reprises his role in "One Less Unbeliever."
[Verse 1]
Stephen, you were picked to be Deacon
Now you criticize
All the legends that we hold dear
You say our ancestry
Idolatry
Trusting this Jesus is the way to be free, so now

[Chorus]
We will, we will stone you
We will, we will stone you

[Verse 2]
Stephen, you're so stubborn, and you say
Circumcision is
Nullified on the faithless Jew
Well between me and you
Your life is through
You’re starting a riot we’ll never subdue. That’s why

[Chorus]
We are, we are stoning you
We are, we are stoning you

[Verse 3]
Stephen, I am Saul I’m a Hebrew
Zealot through and through
Heeding me’s your imperative
You say Father forgive
So primitive
I approve death for this venal fugitive.


[Chorus]
We did, we did stone you, sing it
We did, we did stone you, everybody
We did, we did stone you, hmm
We did, we did stone you, alright

[Verse 1]
Then shone a light
High in the sky
So bright I fell down
‘cuz the light left me blind
Jesus then asked me why
I hated the church.
I had no response or eyes that I could use
To do research (who was he? Why’d he go on and on and on?)

[Chorus]
He is the Savior of the world
And He'll keep His title evermore
Jesus is worthy
Of worship and glory
No time for sin 'cause
Jesus is worthy
Of all praise

[Verse 2] (parts in free cadence)
After three days
My sight was restored
I saw that I had been persecuting and arguing with
The true living Word.
The Lamb of God holy
Truth personified
He forgave me of all my sins and gave me grace
To be His apostle besides (and I mean to go on and on and on and on)

[Chorus]
I am God’s servant, my friends
And I'll keep on preaching 'til the end
I fought the good fight
I ran the good race
I kept the good faith
Yet I can do no good
Without Christ

[Outro Chorus]
I am God’s servant, my friends
And I'll keep on preaching 'til the end
I fought the good fight
I ran the good race
I kept the good faith
Yet I can do no good
The words from the final Chorus are taken from 2 Timothy 4:7.
