God Willin'

(parody of "Godzilla" by Blue Oyster Cult)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: this one is all about James 4:13-17, a warning to people who think they control their own destinies. It's also my latest attempt to win my own "What is the least likely song to make into a Christian parody?" contest.


intro
We can purpose our business but we've generally found
He pulls our silly pretensions right down.

Clueless people say "We'll get gain,"
Seek not God as He looks down on them.

You kick up a fuss 'cause you're going to town.
You're a vapor that's flitting if you're wanting a crown.

Chorus:
Oh, no, don't say "We're going to go." Just say "God willin'."
Oh, no, don't you brag and boast. Just say "God willin'."

solo (like intro)

chorus:
Oh, no, you're here and then you go. Just say "God willin'."
Tomorrow, your life could be toast. Just say "God willin'."

tacet - bass solo
God willin'! God willin'! (echo/pan effects)

spoken: "Now listen, you who say, 'Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.' Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a while and then vanishes."

chorus:
Oh, no, you wanna earn some dough? Just say "God willin'."
Oh, no, the future you don't know. Just say "God willin'."

intro

Scripture has shown that anyone, then,
Who knows something good and doesn't has sinned. (God willin'!)
