(OR, WE BELIEVE THE BIBLE'S THE WORD OF GOD BUT WE DON'T PAY ATTENTION TO MOST OF IT)
The Bible is the Word of God
That's what people tell me every day
But the first three quarters was a big mistake
Yeah, the Old Testament is a "throw-away"
CHORUS: Yeah, it seems God didn't know what He was doing
For a hundred thousand million billion years or so
But He fixed it with the New Testament
And got rid of the stuff we don't need no mo'
Well the rough draft was just a lot of rules
And a bunch of long boring genealogies
And they sacrificed this and they sacrificed that
Just to buy off a God they couldn't please
Well, it seems God couldn't keep His temper
He'd smite'm with His great big baseball bat
But a couple thousand years ago God got saved
And He's real nice now I can tell you that
TALK: OK, somebody give me a New Testament
Let's see--Matthew--uh, oh, it begins with a genealogy
Let's flip a few more pages--

You mean there's rules in this thing?
Let's try Paul. . .
"Those who practice such things
not inherit the
Wait a second; I thought Paul was all grace!
Let's go to the back
Wait a second; what are Psalms and Proverbs doing here?
Huh? God doesn't look real nice here. . .
Did this book get put into the wrong Testament?
Maybe we can do a trade: Revelation and James for Psalms and Proverbs
Maybe God needs a third edition
