Ton, Ton, Ton

(parody of "Fun, Fun, Fun" by the Beach Boys)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: it surprizes me that it took me so long to come up with a Beach Boys parody, since I know so many of their songs from way back. ApologetiX gets a double shout-out for this one, since their songs put both the melody ("John 1:1") and the subject ("Plump") in my head.


Now, the Hebrews were conquered by Moab -- it was in God's plan, now.
And they got the whole land, eighteen years, down from Judah to Dan, now.
You were the king, name of Eglon, and you were a really great big man, now.
You weighed a ton, ton, ton, you were bad and took their freedom away.

You know the Jews had it coming 'cause they didn't keep God in first place, now.
(Was God in His place, now, was God in His place?)
They all were into those idols, and their worship was a total disgrace, now.
(A total disgrace, now, a total disgrace)
But with the Moabites oppressing, they repented and were seeking His face, now.
(And seeking His face, now, and seeking His face)
You weighed a ton, ton, ton, you were bad and took their freedom away.

You should have known all along that the Lord was only using you, now.
(You're on the wrong side, now, you're on the wrong side)
And when they begged Him, "Set us free," were you thinking that His payment was due now?
(You're on the wrong side, now, you're on the wrong side)
He raised a judge up, name of Ehud, he took a knife and ran you through, now.
(You're on the wrong side, now, you're on the wrong side)
You weighed a ton, ton, ton, you were bad and took their freedom away.
