The Lyrics

Wherein I pick up where my last religion-related parody left off...

You guys are nuts, lost my trust
Made a golden calf just because, uh
I was chillin' high on top
Of the mountain talkin' shop with God
You couldn't wait two damn minutes? Geez
Forgot the crazy we had to leave
In Egypt? Please, God helped us flee
By provin' all their gods were weak, yeah
Oh-oh-oh, He let us walk through the sea on the ground
Oh-oh-oh-oh, was that all talk?

Golden calf
I don't like your golden calf
I don't need your golden calf
Made a god from a golden calf (golden calf)
One's not enough?

I got these tablets, called to share
The words upon these if you'd cared
To be patient, wait a while
Carvin' on a slab of rock takes time, oh
Wrote out ten lines, they're rules to please
The one up above, I bet he's cheesed
First two rules seem to have been pre-
Broken, you must be kiddin' me, yeah
Oh-oh-oh, He helped us walk out the slaveholder's town
Oh-oh-oh-oh, was that just talk?
Roll my eyes at you

Golden calf
I don't like your golden calf
I don't need your golden calf
Brand new god from a golden calf (golden calf)
Smash these rocks, cause I'm pissed

Oh-oh-oh, sure, I was gone longer than I'd planned now
Oh-oh-oh-oh, your minds have gone
Now I can't stand you

Golden calf
I don't like your golden calf
I don't need your golden calf
Panic got you a golden calf (golden calf)
And now you're just screwed

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (golden calf, golden calf)
Your golden calf
Golden calf
Golden calf (now it's powder for)
Golden calf (your sacred punch)
Golden calf (a forced gold punch)
Golden calf (cause you ticked me off)
Golden calf (with all this rot)
Golden calf

Also known as "the cut credits song from The Prince of Egypt". Seriously, the last shot of that film was Moses holding the Ten Commandments set to triumphant music, the kids in the theatre blissfully unaware that immediately after, everything went to shit.

Thou shalt write good parodies! Quite sophisticated take from you without getting preachy or blasphemous. Liked this a lot.

Highly original concept! I know that you are somewhat religious because you HATED my “Blasphemian Blasphemy” parody so it was really unusual to see this kind of topic coming from you but I liked seeing you set out of your comfort zone.
