Song Parodies -> "Jeremiah is a Preacher"

Original Song Title:

"Joy to the World"

Original Performer:

Three Dog Night

Parody Song Title:

"Jeremiah is a Preacher"

The Lyrics

Dedicated to a certain senator and presidential candidate!
Jeremiah is a Preacher....
He's a good friend of mine!
I never paid attention to the words he said,
But I went to his church all the time.
I’m a Christian so I went all the time.

As he screamed:
"Damn America!
K-K-K America!
Whites caused Nine-Eleven and made H-I-V!
Damn to them from me!"

I can’t really say he’s a bigoted man,
My good friend, the Reverend Wright.
'Cause my own fam'ly tree has its racists, you see.
You know my Grandma was typically white!


In small-town Pennsylvania,
They’re not having very much fun.
So they’re all filled with hate, and they cling to their faith ,
And the right to own and carry a gun.
I said the right to own and carry a gun.

(Refrain repeatedly to fade out)

You people are never satisfied. You don't like it when we Blue Staters don't go to church. Then you don't like it when we do go to church. Maybe you should look at the bigoted preachers endorsing McCain, like Pat Robertson who said that 9/11 was caused by feminists, gays and pro-choice activists. And it wasn't a good parody, either. Yikes, if I didn't know better, I'd think my brother Bernard came back and wrote this, but that's highly unlikely. (Unless this is one of the site's liberals masquerading as a right-wing lunatic, in which case you did a great job!)

Slight pacing missteps, but otherwise well done. 455. MP--agreed about the bigoted preachers endorsing McCain, but that doesn't make Obama's support for Jeremiah right.

"I'm an Obama voter/A Blue State churchgoer/I ain't gonna carry a gun (No way!)/I say I ain't gonna carry a gun..." Nevertheless your parody made me grin and chuckle a little. A bit rough on the pacing. 4-4-4.
