You Might Thank

(parody of "You Might Think" by the Cars)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: the Cars were my favorite band before I became a Christian, as I've mentioned, and every now and then I revisit them, looking for something worth the time and effort of rewriting. This one is about one of God's "pet peeves," unthankfulness. Can we ever be too grateful for all that God has done for us? Can we ever express that gratitude too much?


Oh well uh, you might thank the Savior for coming down to you.
Why did you think they struck Him, and called Him King of Jews?
But I think it's worthwhile if you praise and thank a while.
You might thank Him truly, 'cause baby, it's all true.
You might thank Him daily, oh, for all He's done for you.

You might thank Him for miracles; He's there when things look bleak.
You may not see Him moving, but He knows what you need.
But I think it's worthwhile when you thank Him in your trials.
You might thank Him truly, like in First Tim two.
You might thank Him daily, oh, for all He's done for you.

But it's His heart, He won't forsake, or make mistakes, or help you late.
But He'll keep you going 'til the Son comes down.
He'll keep you going.

Oh well uh, you might not think it's serious, unthankful in a crowd.
But God says sometimes, it's injurious not to thank aloud.
But I think it's worthwhile if you're not a thankless child.
You might thank Him truly, expand your gratitude.
You might thank Him daily, oh, for all He's done for you-a-oo.
All He's done for you, all He's done for you.
