IF THE BEACH BOYS, WILLIE, LOS LOBOS & COOLIO BECAME A CHRISTIAN GROUP
Proverbs 17:22 I Corinthians 3:12-14; 9:25
Psalm 119:11,105 Psalm 23 Hebrews 13:5
 
Crown crown get a crown, I get a crown
I get a crown and I'm heaven bound
Oo Oo Oo Oo, I hope you get one too
 
In the Word again
Just can't wait to get in the Word again
The life I love is Bible study with my friends
And I can't wait to get in the Word again
 
Ba la ba la ba la Bible
Some people say it's just too hard to understand that book
But I say it's much easier than understanding this song
Read the Bible Read the Bible
Ba la ba la ba la Bible
Please tell me why I keep stuttering over and over again
I guess it's just cause this song is in Spanish
and I am a gringo
I'm a gringo, but I like to read the Bible
Cause I can understand it
Not like the words in this song
Ba La Bible, Ariba, Read it
 
God’s Sweet Paradise
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no one ‘cuz I got Snoop dog breath
My homies are down no where to be find
‘cuz when I opened my mouth they all fell to the ground
now I know I ain’t the kind of guy that smells like a rose
But even my mama has to pinch her nose
Been searching most our lives
Trying to live in God’s sweet paradise
Keep searching most our lives
Trying to live in God’s sweet paradise
Monkey into man, man into power
Put bomb in the zoo Turn monkey into powder
What’s this all about I got no clue
Don’t be a fool Stay away from the zoo?
Well there’s no easy answers in this life filled with pain
But there is some hope let me tell you his name
When your life’s out of luck, falling apart
You need to ask Jesus into your heart
Ask Jesus in your life and you’ll live in God’s sweet paradise
Ask Jesus in your life and you’ll live in God’s sweet paradise

BIG DEAL
Romans 1:22-23 Proverbs 14:12
 
Alexander the great, conquered the world
Napoleon and Hitler tried the same
Military genius, big power display
If it weren't for school history
I wouldn't even know their name!
CHORUS
Big deal, they haven't changed my life
Big deal, they're all dead and in their grave
Big deal, though it happened so long ago
Big deal, my life is still the same
Einstein said, "Everything is relative"
Darwin said my relative's in the zoo
Scientific genius, the things these men knew
But don't let some scientist
Make a monkey out of you! CHORUS
 
Plato theorized, the idea is reality
Descartes thought I think therefore I am (What’s that mean?)
Philosophical genius, so confusing to me
If you really want to know the truth
Let God's word set you free! CHORUS
 
He was just a simple carpenter, born in a stable
Put to death for speaking truth in love
No military genius, no scientific fame
But His life has changed the world
And Jesus is His name!
CHORUS
It's a Big Deal, He's changed my life
(He’s in control of my life)
Big deal, He's not dead, look in the grave
(He’s not dead, He is alive!)
Big deal, though it happened so long ago
My life will never be the same
I said my life will never be the same!

BILLY
Matthew 24:44 Acts 22:15
 
Hey Billy, Did you feel that earthquake?
What do you mean it was just my imagination?
A lot of strange things been happenin' lately
Did you read in the paper the other day . . .
Russia dropped a nuclear bomb on Iraq
Nothing happened. . .Everyone in Iraq was
gone invading Yugoslavia
 
A lot of strange things have been happening
You're right, let's not worry about that Jesus return stuff
We've got plenty of time
Let's go rent that old movie "Return of the Jedi"
Lightning flashes cross the sky, the wicked start to die
Mountains tumble to the ground
Without a warning, without a sound
Look Billy, Jesus has returned
His blazing eyes see through my heart
Billy, where'd you go. . . no, no, I don't want us to part
 
CHORUS
Billy my best friend, why didn't I tell you?
We could live together forever, if only you knew
Jesus died for you as well as me
So we could live eternally
But I fear it's too late, the victory is won
Why did I hesitate, to tell you about the Son?
Lightning flashes cross the sky, the wicked start to die
 
Mountains tumble to the ground
Without a warning, without a sound
Billy where are you? There's nothing more that I can do
We laughed, we had so much fun
But never talked about God's Son
 
CHORUS
 
Did you feel that earthquake?

IF GREEN DAY, NICKELBACK, THE VILLAGE PEOPLE, MILLI VANILLI, AND NIRVANA BECAME A CHRISTIAN GROUP

HIGHWAY OF HEALED HOPES
Matthew 28:20b     II Corinthians 5:17
I walk this lonely road down the Boulevard cause my car broke down
Looked under the hood, suddenly my face turned black and brown
Engine blew; oil flew; now I look more like a clown
Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah

My shadow walks with me because it has no choice
But it'd tell me to hit the road if it had a voice
I knew I should have bought a Hugo or Rolls Royce
So now I walk alone
Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah

I know that I could clean my outside body
But I've stained my heart, the part of me you can't see
Oh how I wish someone up there would find me
'Til then I walk alone 
Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah

Then something changed inside, I'm clean since Jesus came into my heart
He replaced my broken dreams and promised He would never part
Ah-ah, ah-ah Now I'm not alone, I'm not a

He walks with me every step of every day
He died so that I could walk the right way
He found me and now I know that I can say
I'll never walk alone

WISE GUY
Romans 3:12  Revelation 3:20  Psalm 107:43
Never made it as a wise man (wise guy)
Cause I'm not one of the 3 stooges - though my name is Larry
Never made it as a rich man stealing, cause I never did work at Enron
Never made it as a quarterback, but I learned how to play some Nickleback

And this is how you remind me 
This is how you remind me that I'm not good enough
This is how you remind me that this life is so tough

Never made it as a poor man, cause all my songs were on MTV 
And I made a million bucks and all my albums went platinum
More like aluminum
Guess I made it as poor man, cause I never did get a real job
Guess I never did get a real job, cause I never did get a car
Guess I never did get a car, cause I never did make any money
Guess I never did make any money, cause I never did get a real job
Guess I never did get a real job, cause I never did get a car
And this is how you remind me that I said those words before
This is how you remind me life's just got to have more

It's not like me to say sorry, shift the blame make up some story
This time I'm not mistaken God I'm giving you my heart it's breakin'
And I've been wrong, I've been down, Lord I ask you to turn my life around
Now He lives in my heart so have you asked the Son in yet, yet
Have you asked the Son in yet, yet
Have you asked God's Son in?

Guess I made it as a wise man, cause I started to read the Bible
And this is how you remind me that you love us so much!

Pray At The YMCA
Philippians 4:6-7
 
It’s fun to pray at the YMCA
It’s fun to pray at the YMCA
You can always pray any time of day
‘Cuz the people are happy and gay
You need to pray at the YMCA

‘Cuz the Lord’s strength is always enough
Pray at the YMCA
 
Yes You Know It’s True
I John 5:20 Romans 5:8
Girl you know its true ooh ooh ooh I love you
Girl you know its true ooh ooh ooh I love you
Girl you know its true I would never lie to you
Girl you know its true I would never lie to you
No way baby
Girl you know its true I would never lie to you
Girl you know its true I would never lie to you
Yes you know its true Jesus really loves you
(that is the truth - no lip synching on that part)
Yes you know its true
He proved it when He died for you
 
Smells Like Holy Spirit
Romans 8:26
 
When the lights out Hitler takes us
Here we are now in Las Vegas
I’m with stupid, He’s contagious
So now I’m an ignoramus, Yeah
When the lights out and we’re praying
Here we are Lord come and save us
Adonai Jesus hears us
And He knows just what we’re saying
Adonai, El Shaddai, Adonai

LEONARD SIMPSON
Author Unknown John 15:13
 
When I was just eleven
There lived this fat boy on our block
His name was Leonard Simpson
And we laughed at him a lot
 
CHORUS
And we called him, Hey Leonard, Fatty Fatty Two by Four
Hey Simpson, saw you kiss the ugly girl next door
Leonard wore bib overalls, his father cut his hair
He wore old high-topped army boots
And sleeveless underwear
One day we played a trick on him
We let him join our club
We put his name upon the door
And splattered it with mud
 
CHORUS
 
Well Leonard had this girlfriend, she really took the prize
She wore coke-bottled glasses, over her crossed eyes
Pigeon-toed with legs that bowed, she really was a rose
She had long dark stringy, greasy hair
that strung out from her nose
 
CHORUS
 
Well that was 14 years ago, now I'm 29
Leonard died some time ago, a hero of some kind
They say a poor young Jewish boy
Wwas pestered by a gang
Leonard helped him get away
But was beat to death with chains
 
CHORUS
It's funny how old Leonard died
To save a life from being lost
Reminds me of a story I heard
About a man, His blood, and a cross
 
YOUR FRIEND
John 15:13-15 Hebrews 13:5b
 
When you're feeling lonely
Like life has passed you by
Your friends have gone the other way
Dark clouds fill the sky
CHORUS
Remember I am your friend, through the thick and thin
Remember I am your friend, I've been there before
Remember I am your friend, with you till the end
Remember I am your friend, to the end of time
Remember I am your friend, to the end of the line
I am your friend
When you're feelin' down and out
And nothing's going right for you
My tears fall like the morning rain
I want to be near you
CHORUS
In my darkest hour (I've been there before)
My friends all deserted me (I've been there before)
They left me here all alone (I've been there before)
To face my toughest enemy
They spit in my face, they pulled out my hair
They laughed at my name, but no one seemed to care
They tied me up to this rack
Then drug that whip across my back
Darkness filled the empty sky
They left me hanging there to die
Greater love has no man than this
That a man lay down his life for a friend
Trust the Lord, He died for you
He'll always see you through
Trust the Lord, He wants what is best for you
Even more than you do
Trust the Lord, come unto me, all who are weary
And He'll give you rest
Trust the Lord, give Him your life
Give Jesus your life
CHORUS

TITANIC PARODY
Romans 8:38,39 Revelation 3:20
 
Every night in my dreams I see you I hear you
‘Cause radios keep playing this song
MTV, the video store, now even on this cheesy
gospel recording where you thought for sure
you were safe from this tune
Everyone keeps playing this song
Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that this song will go on and on and on and on . . .
Sometimes in my life I don’t feel or hear Him
But I know God’s love will go on
So when your life is sinking (get it? . . . like the boat)
Don’t you say your good-byes
‘Cause I know God’s love will go on
Near, far, wherever you are
He is there and His love will go on
If you’ll just open the door He’ll come into your heart
And your heart will go on and on
‘Cause Jesus is King of the World!

TRUE LOVE
I John 4:7-10 Hebrews. 13:5
I've been hurt many times before
I don't want to risk it anymore
No one to blame, the way that I am
Just trying to survive, the best that I can
 
CHORUS
I want to know the love of a true one
See there is still hope left for me
I want to know there is someone who loves me
Who can stop the pain and start my life over again
The pages turn but the story's the same
I pray for love to end this game
And stop the fear that my feelings won't grow
Who can I turn to, I just don't know
 
CHORUS
 
I want to trust you with all of my heart
And believe that you won't depart
I'll give you all that I've got to give
And you'll be with me as long as I live
 
CHORUS
 
His Love's invincible, it's indestructible
God's Love will never end!
Now I know the love of a True One
I see there is still hope left for me
Now I know there is someone who loves me
Who can stop the pain and start my life over again
He can stop the pain and start your life over again

HEROES INTRO OPUS No.25 CONCERTO IN C # #
Ephesians 6:12-18
 

Our battle is not with flesh and blood or the Phantom or men with chainsaws or Skeletor or other humans that may be hard to get along with. But we wrestle with evil spiritual powers in dark places. And in the midst of that conflict, who are you going to call on? Ghostbusters, a man dressed like a bat, the almighty dollar, a turtle, Superman, or maybe just try to escape on some high or modern technology. Who is your hero?

HEROES
Hebrews 2:14,15
 
When I was growing up he was the superhero of the day
He was faster than a speeding bullet, No Way. . . Way
He could bend steel, I think that's what they claim
Just by putting it on the track of a speeding train
One mighty hero could fly, but he looked just like a rat
One sucked blood from people's necks, nothing more than a bat
The names may change, but the story's the same
Today's heroes are as complex and just about as strange
Let's see, Underdog transformed to Thundercats
Mighty Mouse metamorphisized to
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
Superman superseded Superhuman Samurai Cybersquad
And Batman became Pokeman?
 
CHORUS
 
We need a hero in this crazy mixed up world
We need a hero who will never fade away
We need a hero in this painful wicked world
We need a hero who can come and save the day
(2nd time) We need a hero we can trust in all they say
 
Before long the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be
Elderly, deviant, senile sumo-wrestlers wearing girdles
Hanson and Spice Girls will get married some day
And after the sex change, He-Man will be She-Gay
Our heroes go on strike because they need more pay
See it's hard to survive on just 10,000 a day
Madonna's a virgin, the artist we still call Prince would die for you?
Well, if Milli Vanilli says so you know it's gotta be true
 
CHORUS
 
Once I was tied down to this railroad track of life
The ropes of sin and pain were too strong for me
To set myself free
But just when Satan's Santa Fe
Was ready to crush my heart that day
Jesus stepped right in front of that hell bound train
Destroyed the chains that caused me such pain
I jumped up to thank him for saving my neck
But I heard a loud crash, there was a terrible wreck
His blood trickled down the rails, he took my place
In the distance I heard nails
Jesus you are my hero
I will follow you till this life is through
Heroes come and heroes go
But I've only found one that I can call my very own
Jesus you are my hero
I will follow you till my life is through
Jesus you are my hero!

IF HAMMER, RUN DMC, MICHAEL JACKSON & LED ZEP BECAME A CHRISTIAN CHRISTIAN GROUP
John 8:44 Ephesians 2:8,9
 
Can't trust this
Smoking dope, snorting coke won't solve your problems
Can't trust this
Alcohol and rock and roll won't solve your problems
Can't trust this
Cause Jesus is your friend, Till the very end
You can trust Him
See it ain't MC Hammer time, Stop . . . It's Jesus time
 
Walk This Walk
I was a backsliding Christian hanging out at the mall
I was skipping church, making out in the hall
When you stick your lips upon the wall
If you have enough suction you will not fall
I thought I was bad, I was walking tall
But my head was full of holes like a bowling ball
So don't be a fool when you hear God's call
Cause Jesus is cool . . . That's all
When you're walking down the street at night
You're all alone, there is no light
A band of thugs walks up to you, ballet is not their game
Just fall down on your knees and pray
Satan leave in Jesus' name
Because God's Bad, He's bad. You know it, He's bad
I want the whole wide world to know
He's got the devil in a sleeper hold
I said God's Bad
He's spinning Satan round and round
Gonna body slam him to the ground
God's good, He's good. You know it, He's good
So won't do you no good to say Shamall
Cause it's Jesus you must call
See it's a spiritual battle we're fighting in
And God's the one that's gonna win
See He already won that victory
On a blood stained tree called Calvary
So don't fight like no wimp with a knife in your hand
Just fall to your knees and fight like a man
Michael Jackson is sure his glove glitters with gold
And he's buying the bones of the Elephant man
When he gets that trunk nose hooked to his oxygen hose
To Lisa Marie he will propose . . . and then divorce
And he's buying the bones of the Elephant man
Next he'll try buying bones of Mr. Ed or Roger Rabbit
He won't stop till he's got Flipper's fins
Ooo and it makes him bad
Ooo you know it, he's bad, so just beat it
Yes, there are two roads you can go by
But in the long run, there's only one that leads to heaven
It can't be bought with lots of money or dead bones
The way's been paid for by God's own son
And if you want on heaven's road
There's one Man you've got to know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How all that glitters isn't gold or dead bones
Though He died in days of old
You will never find His bones
Cause He took that rock and made it roll
And He paid for your Stairway to Heaven

TO DAD, WITH LOVE
Mark 14:35,36 John 3:16; 8:44 Ephesians 6:11-12
1 Corinthians. 15:20-26 Philippians 1:3 Hebrews 2:14-15
 
I remember you and all that you would do
Just to let me know you loved me
Seemed like yesterday when I knelt to pray
Please God, don’t take my dad away
He gave his life so I could live
Happy and free in this life of pain and misery
I’ll never forget the sacrifices that he made
Though I didn’t always understand
He was always there for me
Then God whispered in my ear
Don’t be afraid, don’t fear
I’ve been there too, I know that hurting in your heart
I had to watch my only Son, my innocent beloved Son
Brutally beaten, murdered, His life had just begun
He gave his life so I could live, eternally
Happy and free in this life of pain and misery
I’ll never forget the sacrifice You made for me
Though I don’t always understand
You will always be with me
Death is an enemy, sent from the father of lies
And by God I’ll fight that serpent till the day I die
Death is not God’s will, it causes hurt and pain
But Jesus destroyed the power of death
When he rose up from the grave!
I remember you and all that you would do
Just to let me know you loved me
Seemed like yesterday when I cried and prayed
Thank you God for giving me such a great dad
And letting me know him as long as you did
Tell him I love him and I’ll see him soon

THE GAME
John 15:18,19 II Corinthians. 10:3 Romans 12:2
 
Sometimes I expect this world to treat me like its own
I get surprised when things go wrong
Lord please help me to never forget
This world is not my home
When everything is going wrong
Please help me to stay strong
 
CHORUS
 
I don't want to play the game
I don't want to stay the same
As the dying world that's around me
I don't want to play the game
I don't want to stay the same
As the selfish world that surrounds me
I don't want to play the game tonight
There's no one else to blame tonight
So many people in this world are dying every day
While we sit back and watch, living our own way
Our heart begins to break when we see them on the screen
We solve the problem, turn the channel
Forget what we have seen
The lines are drawn, which side will you be on?
You gotta stand for what's right, even if you're all alone
 
CHORUS
 
Fancy cars, singles bars
Playing video games or playing some guitar
Our nice new clothes shine in the light
While we've forgotten we're in a life and death fight
Our wealth just turns to sand
So you've gotta take a stand, follow his command
 
CHORUS
 
We are warriors in this wicked fallen land
Can't you understand we've gotta take a stand
 
CHORUS
 
This world is not my home
We are warriors, but we will never be alone

LORD BE MY CAFFEINE
Psalm 20:7 Matthew. 6:33
Philippians 4:19 John 10:10

Warning: The surgeon general has determined that nit-picking side issues in this song can lead one to miss the whole point, which is that we often rely so much on modern technology and "inventions" that we forget about trusting the Inventor of the Universe for our needs (not necessarily our selfish wants.)

Lord be my caffeine when I can't wake up in the morning
Lord be my sleeping pill when I can't sleep in the evening
Lord be my microwave when I'm kinda running late
Lord be my old spice cologne when I'm out on a date
 
CHORUS
 
Lord be my everything to me
Lord be my everything to me
I'm not asking for some dream-like fantasy
Keep my feet on the ground in touch with reality
Lord be my everything to me
Lord be my bank and my toaster
When I'm running out of bread
Lord be my TV and roller coaster
When I'm bored out of my head
Lord be my smoke, coke and dope, when I just can't cope
Lord be my alcohol and rock n roll, when I've lost all hope
 
CHORUS
 
The Lord He promised He'd meet all of our needs
Said He'd give us real life abundantly
The answer to our problems is not pills or thrills
Presidents or governments, communism, socialism
Apartheid, suicide, sex, drugs, rock-n-roll performers
Transformers, robots or gobots, He-Man, She-Man
Batman, Superman, men on Mars, nuclear arms
A mate, or a date, abortion, extortion
Computers, prosecutors, prison, or even religion
It's Jesus

TWISTED SCRIPTURE
Romans 10:13 Ephesians 2:8,9 John 19:30
II Timothy 2:15; 4:3,4 Isaiah 40:8
 
The man at my door says you can be saved
Just put your faith in God and try to behave
Keep the 10 Commandments, ride a bike, cut your hair
Don’t eat meat, be baptized, chant and never use Nair
But the Bible clearly says just to call on the Son
See all the works needed have already been done
Just think if Jesus from the cross had to confess
It’s almost finished, sorry, now you must do the rest
 
Twisted Scripture, don’t fall for Satan’s lies
Twisted Scripture, they’re not gonna make it
Twisted Scripture, God’s word will never die
So just read it, and you won’t be deceived
By Twisted Scripture

SOAP FOR LUNCH
Colossians 2:8 1 Corinthians 3:11-15
 
I’ve got those NYPD Blues,
Cause I’m Thirtysomething
On 14 cable channels, at 5 different times
In 3 different languages
What can I do? I think I’ll change the channel
Oh no, Dallas has got ‘em too!
But it was just a dream!
I Just don’t know where to go to escape from this terrible depression
I think I’ll catch a Love Boat to Gilligan’s Island
Just off Santa Barbara and try to find some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
I just don’t know who to believe
But I’m kind of hungry
Think I’ll turn on the TV and have some soap for lunch
 
CHORUS
As The World Turns, All My Children
were admitted to General Hospital (E.R.)
They’re Young & Restless, Searchin’ For Tomorrow
All The Days Of Their Lives
But there’s Another World
just past The Edge of Night
For those who follow that Guiding Light
One Life to Live will soon be past
Only what’s done for Christ will last
Luke’s kinda feelin’ blue
Cause he got a divorce from Laura-Lou
Now she says she’s gonna sue
Cause she remarried this Jew
Who had been locked up for sniffin’ glue
And while there had an affair with a lady who had the flu
Who had been put in jail because of incestuous homosexual affair which she had with her 2nd cousin twice removed who turned out to be Luke’s mother too! What a zoo!
I don’t know who to believe anymore
But I’m so spiritually starvin’ I can hardly see
Think I’ll turn on the TV and have some soap for lunch
 
CHORUS
 
But we keep wanting soap for lunch
I’ll take a six-pack of Zest with a side order of Dial to go
Soap for lunch

HALLOWEEN SONG
Hebrews 2:14,15 I John 4:18
 
You are now entering the twilight zone
Witches and warlocks and bats with wings
Snakes and spiders crawl up your leg and cling
Sharks with Jaws and scary things
Not to mention this creepy thing that sings
All the things that go bump in the night
When you're alone in the dark without any light
Vampires take your neck and bite
Ghosts and Goblins cause a terrible fright. Boo!
 
CHORUS
Jesus has defeated all powers of evil
So don't be afraid when the spirits appear
Just trust in the Lord, He's right by your side
His power of love is stronger than fear
One dark, dreary night the demons had a plan
We'll destroy all faith and love if we can
We'll put nothing but fear and evil in man
And where they end up, they're gonna need a fan!
There was only one problem to this sinister plot
The miracle man Jesus, the giver of love
We'd better act quick, cause hell is getting hot
This Jesus must die, leave His body to rot!
Three days later, at the demons Halloween party
(They were eating lots of deviled ham, deviled eggs and fallen-angel food cake with really hot Jalapena peppers)
An unexpected visitor, a miracle man appeared
"I've broken your chains of death and evil," said He,
"My love conquered fear, now all can be free!"
 
CHORUS
 
You've just left the twilight zone and entered reality
