Abba Dad

(parody of "Abacab" by Genesis)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: I started this one over a year ago, ran out of ideas to finish it, and set it aside. Usually when I set something aside incomplete, it never, ever, ever gets finished. But one day at work, the ideas started up again, and I completed the parody. The new words don't exactly stay on a single theme, but if you remember that the original words meant nothing whatsoever, this version may not seem so bad.


He's the Lord of all, Who came before.
We know His will is praise and adore.
There's a lack of true hearers;
Somehow, there's a whole bunch who live in vain.
Do you know all His names?
Tell me, do you know all His names?

Chorus:
(Adonai) He's everywhere
(Elohim) And He's always there
(Abba, dad) 'Cause He really cares (Abba, dad)

Did you happen to find the pearl
'Fore He's shakin' all things in the world?
He is wanting to fill you,
Showing you an answer that's not your own.
Do you think you'll find out?
I tell you, don't you cling onto doubt!

Chorus:
(call him Yahweh) He's everywhere
(El Shaddai) And He's always there
(Abba, dad) 'Cause He really cares
(Abba, dad) Yes, He really cares!

You want it, you got it, and He'll bestow.
You want it, you got it, He won't say no.

Here's the conclusion: He overcame.
No rejection; just come and call His name.
Won't you take up the warning,
"Seek and find" to others? It's so ordained.
Well, He is holy and sovereign.
Yeah, He is holy and sovereign.
Baby, if you hold on to somethin',
Now, are you beholding his sufferin'?

Chorus:
(King of Kings) He's everywhere
(Lord of Lords) And He's always there
(Abba, dad) 'Cause He really cares (Abba, dad)
