I'm a Deceiver

(parody of "I'm a Believer" by the Monkees and Smash Mouth)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: ApologetiX has already covered this song, and done it well. This version was a quickie, but it turned out okay.


I say suffering's just an old-time fairy tale,
Good for Acts, but not for you and me.
The world's not out to get you, no matter how it seems.
You should have no pain if you're redeemed.

Chorus:
Got a smiling face, but I'm a deceiver
Got no grace, or truth in my style.
You don't know much? Ooooh, I'm a deceiver,
Will you believe me when I lie?

I say God is mostly into giving things,
Whether your beliefs are right or not.
What's with holy living? You don't need that strain.
God'll give you wealth and take your pain.

chorus

The Bible, I'm denying; I just entertain.
Chances are that I've believed in vain.

chorus
