No-No Song

(parody of "No No Song" by Ringo Starr)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: this was one of what I call "mental hiccups," parodies that I dashed off without any desire to do anything profound, just for the fun of it. But I revere God's Word so deeply that it winds up being profound, even if I didn't mean for it to turn out that way. Thus, we have the oddity of a parody that's less humorous than the original song.


A man I know came from a church down in the U.S.
He smiled because I did not understand.
Then he spoke out, he said "confess and possess."
He said that it would force the Father's hand.

And I said, "No no no no, I won't claim it no more.
I'm tired of faking stuff from the Lord.
No thank you please, it's just a faith disease.
This is not the truth — it leaves me floored."

A woman that I know came from a church that's alight.
She smiled because I did not understand.
Then she spoke out, she said that "laughing is right."
She said the Spirit's blessings would expand.

And I said, "No no no no, I won't 'Ha!' no more.
I'm tired of faking stuff from the Lord.
No thank you please, you're leaving God displeased.
This is stuff the Bible has deplored."

A man I know came from a church from right down the hall.
He smiled because I did not understand.
Then he spoke out, he said that "love wins it all,"
'Cause no one goes to Hell — that's not the plan. (spoken: And we won’t be smoking!)

And I said, "No no no no, I won't buy it no more.
I'm tired of faking stuff from the Lord.
No thank you please, you've got the world appeased.
This is not the Word — there's no accord."

I just said, "No no no no, you won't fool me no more.
I'm tired of faking stuff from the Lord.
No thank you please, I want no lies like these,
They're not in the Bible that's my sword."
