I like my deities, straight up, with a twist [May. 9th, 2008|08:29 am]

I'm not usually a lyric-poster, but I referred to this song in a previous post and listened to it on the way home yesterday and, especially the way Jim White sings it, it makes me smile. (think alternative country, southern ex-preacher)

"God Was Drunk When He Made Me"

Jesus and the fiery furnace.
Devil and the deep blue sea.
Preacher say I'm gonna burn in hell for all eternity.
But when I have my judgement day and I lock eyes with my savior, well,
This is what I'm gonna tell him when he asks about my behavior...
I'm gonna say;
God was drunk when he made me.
God was drunk when he made me.
God was drunk when he made me.
And that's why I'm so crazy.
Jesus and the fiery furnace.
Devil and the deep blue sea.
God was drunk when he made me...but that's okay 'cause
I forgive Him.
See if it was God who made forgiveness, then before that he musta made sin.
And who built the house of brotherly love, then let the Devil come dancing in?
If it was God that saved the miracle child from the peril of the fiery flame,
Well then it musta been him that killed the two hundred others just to glorify
His name
That's why I say;
God was drunk when he made me.
God was drunk when he made me.
God was drunk when he made me.
And that's why I spout heresy.
Jesus and the fiery furnace,
Devil and the deep blue sea.
God was drunk when he made me but that's okay...'cause I forgive Him.

And yes, I have edited this post and corrected the spelling of deities. The real reason I'm areligious...I can't spell deity for carp.

(Yes, and that's how I typed "crap" but I LIKE it that way...)

I like my diets like that as well.

:)

Cute song - great lyrics and fun pun on the diets/deities.

(can I get mine chocolate covered?)

The really sad thing is, I edited it. Posted it. And darn if I didn't just type it in wrong again.....

I hate it when the scriptwriter carps out and uses dexatrim ex machina to wrap up the plot...

Favorite saying on T-shirt I purchased for my kid at a Maritime Museum in Maine:

"Cod is my Co-Pilot"

It is still his favorite shirt going on 6+ years now. Should have bought a bunch of 'em for the rest of the family.
