"Odd-ball Religion"

Parody Written by:

Phil Alexander

The Lyrics

Chorus:
Gimme that odd-ball religion
Gimme that odd-ball religion
Gimme that odd-ball religion
Seems kind o' strange to me

Judaism: what a rip-off
Or at least a tiny snip-off
Did they get a godly tip-off?
Seems kind o' strange to me

Chorus

Christians get me at a loss
If JC comes back, becoss
Will he want to see a cross?
Seems kind o' strange to me

Chorus

Islam's great for a male
He don't have to wear a veil
Just one minor detail
That seems kind o' strange to me

Chorus

Worship Satan? That's plain silly
'Cause he'll never win it, will he?
Like spam that says "a bigger willy"
Seems kind o' strange to me

Chorus

What about the one Earth Goddess?
Call her Gaia, call her modest
Strikes me as one of the oddest
Seems kind o' strange to me

Chorus

Egypt had a god called Horus
Also ain't done nothing for us
Another de'ty to ignore us
Seems kind o' strange to me

Chorus

Or Quetzlcoatl
Who has such pow'rful wings that'll
Make your very eyeballs rattle
Seems kind o' strange to me

Final Chorus:
So now, have you caught a smidgen
Though I know I've been abridgin'
All that odd-ball religion
Seems kind o' strange to me

Amen Brother!

Very apt for that old hymn. Which is the old time religion, anyway? You didn't say anything about druids and their trees.

A mass dose of 15 milligrams of opium!

Can't think of a rhyme for "druid"
(except, let me see now, "fluid")
This time I will just say "Screw id"
Seems kind o' strange to me

555, very clever and witty, Reverend Philbo!

To quote Aleister Crowley, who enjoyed referring to himself as The Beast 666:

"We place no reliance
On virgin or pigeon
Our method is science
Our aim is Religion".

If yer god's a Cosmic Muffin
Or a pillow made o'stuffin
Then that holy glue you're huffin'
Sure smells good enough fer me!

Though I'm loyal to the Ćsir
holy flamewars have no place here:
need to show my better face here,
not ignore maturity.

Though it's true that I'm a Heathen--
love the older gods of Sweden
more than tales of sin and Eden--
still, I liked this parody.

Your beliefs may not be mine, though
this is funny, pacing's fine--so, for this poetry divine-o, three more fives you've earned from me!

Susanna, JD and Ingeborg - thank you - loved those verses, especially your Druid one, Susanna; and your Heathen one, Ingeborg... and as for the Cosmic Muffin: Words fail me ;-)

You can cite chapter and versin', but I'm still a devout person with St. Babe and all his cursin', and it's good enough for me!

Pacholek, one day your Yankees
Will be bitin' on their crankies
And be weepin' in their hankies
At the Red Sox' victory!

664 - that's the aoid guide to religion, is it?
Know 1 can hear you dream - October 01, 2004 - Report this comment
Well, 664 wasn't the vote this neighbour gave, there's a number inbetween 4 and 6 that I used 3 times. BTW: Look out for my first parody about (religious) nutcases tomorrow, inspired by that subway show tune story that Chucky has put up on the front page.

That cross verse reminds me of a Bill Hicks joke; he said it was like going up to a Kennedy wearing a shell casing around your neck (or something like that). Funny stuff.
Phil Alexander - October 02, 2004 - Report this comment
I think it may have been Bill Hicks who inspired that particular verse :-) Though I prefer his comment about a bulletproof popemobile...

Oh, Johnny, you know what happens when you mess with The Curse. You couldn't have one Silent Night? Don't you remember when Aaron Boone came upon the midnight clear? Don't you remember who Bucky Dent shocked O little town of Boston, Mass?
