Dancing With the Ark

(parody of "Dancing in the Dark" by Bruce Springsteen)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: I heard this song on the radio while at work, and the theme for the parody hit me immediately. But I really don't know the original very well, so I kind of winged it.


God has blessed Obed-edom, 'cause the Ark's been there for many days.
Gonna move it this morning, and bring it to its rightful place.
Now I'm really inspired, man I required the Levites to move it themself.
Hey there baby, don't judge if you won't join and help.

Chorus:
Can't start a prayer, can't start a prayer if your heart's dark.
This king's aware, of his God and he's dancing with the Ark.

Now the message is clear, put it on a cart, it's out of place.
And we went down in fear, my God is just too holy for our race.
Now we're soon gonna be there, rejoicing, gonna jump like this.
Our God is answering prayer. Michal, you just stop throwing fits.

chorus

You sit and watch out the window, just a linen ephod is what's on me
I'll take the rest off my shoulders. Don't care just what you think of me.

March up the streets of our town, and we'll be taking it where it's right.
God said His name will be holy. Hey, lady, I'm just rejoicing tonight.
I'm hurt by your reaction, I'm sick of you just sitting, giving me a look.
You're losing your attraction. God's brought me a ways from my shepherd's crook.

chorus 2:
Ain't got a prayer, 'less you're a man after God's own heart.
Just leave it there. I love God and I'm dancing with the Ark.
Can't start a prayer, can't start a prayer if your heart's dark.
This king's aware, of his God and he's dancing with the Ark.
