Giving the devil a taste of his own medicine with "Re-Versed Lyrics"

From the time Elvis began using his hips to entice young women right up to Eminem's use of his lyrics to threaten them as well as of course just about everyone else on the planet popular music has been the bane of fundamentalist Christianity and is surely responsible for leading more young people away from their walk with Christ and into the march of rebellion and self destruction than probably any other of Satan's wily deceptions but now we have the resources to beat that miscreant at his own game by using Re-Versed Lyrics. Amen!

These are just three of the popular abominations which have been turned into wholesome evangelistic tools and I would encourage any of my Christian readers to contribute your own "re-versed lyrics" so that we may continue to reverse the negative effects popular music has been having on this once great nation of ours. Amen.


"A God Thing"
Copyright 1999 Nancy Mari
(can be sung to the tune of "Wild Thing")

A God Thing
Makes my spirit sing
Anoints everything - holy
A God Thing

(spoken) This God Thing
is what's happenin' here
and you can tell for sure
Only God can do it
It's happenin' here!

(spoken) This God Thing
It seems to draw me
but I wanna know for sure
Only God can do it
It draws me

"Smells like Holy Spirit"
Copyright 2001 Steve Brykman & Mason Brown
(can be sung to the tune of "Smells like Teen Spirit")

In His Glory, it's less dangerous
He is risen, exon'rate us
Jesus's love is so contagious
He is risen, exon'rate us

The Messiah
He's no liah
Praise Him or face
Eternal Fire

Yeah

Halle-Halle-Halle-lujah
Halle-Halle-Halle-lujah
Halle-Halle-Halle-lujah
Halle-Halle-Halle

I'm inspired, I've aflatus
Two thousand years; that's some hiatus
Evolutionary theorists, come debate us
God's the Man, He...did create us
We're His fish - watch Him come bait us

Yeah

"Reformation Polka"
Copyright 2000 Richard Gebel
(can be sung to the tune of "Supercalifragilistic-expialidocious")

When I was just ein junger Mann I studied canon law;
While Erfurt was a challenge, it was just to please my Pa.
Then came the storm, the lightning struck, I called upon Saint Anne,
I shaved my head, I took my vows, an Augustinian! Oh, -

-Chorus:
Papal bulls, indulgences, and transubstantiation -
Speak your mind against them and face excommunication!
Nail your theses to the door, let's start a Reformation!
Papal bulls, indulgences, and transubstantiation!

When Tetzel came near Wittenberg, St. Peter's profits soared,
I wrote a little notice for the All Saints' Bull'tin board:
"You cannot purchase merits, for we're justified by grace!
Here's 95 more reasons, Brother Tetzel, in your face!" Oh-

-Chorus:
Papal bulls, indulgences, and transubstantiation -
Speak your mind against them and face excommunication!
Nail your theses to the door, let's start a Reformation!
Papal bulls, indulgences, and transubstantiation!

They loved my tracts, adored my wit, all were exempleror;
The Pope, however, hauled me up before the Emperor.
"Are these your books? Do you recant?" King Charles did demand,
"I will not change my Diet, Sir, God help me here I stand!" Oh-

-Chorus:
Papal bulls, indulgences, and transubstantiation -
Speak your mind against them and face excommunication!
Nail your theses to the door, let's start a Reformation!
Papal bulls, indulgences, and transubstantiation!

Duke Frederick took the Wise approach, responding to my words,
By knighting "George" as hostage in the Kingdom of the Birds.
Use Brother Martin's model if the languages you seek,
Stay locked inside a castle with your Hebrew and your Greek! Oh-

-Chorus:
Papal bulls, indulgences, and transubstantiation -
Speak your mind against them and face excommunication!
Nail your theses to the door, let's start a Reformation!
Papal bulls, indulgences, and transubstantiation!

Let's raise our steins and Concord Books while gathered in this place,
And spread the word that 'catholic' is spelled with lower case;
The Word remains unfettered when the Spirit gets his chance,
So come on, Katy, drop your lute, and join us in our dance! Oh-

-Chorus:
Papal bulls, indulgences, and transubstantiation -
Speak your mind against them and face excommunication!
Nail your theses to the door, let's start a Reformation!
Papal bulls, indulgences, and transubstantiation!


But my favorite has to be Catch the Way sung to the tune of "Catch A Wave".

Amen and enjoy the web site.
