Don't Worry, Be Happy - alternate theology of glory lyrics

Last January I was making up new stanzas for "Don't Worry, Be Happy" to amuse myself. I'd forgotten all about it until I came across my notes for a couple of them. I wish I could remember the rest - it was really funny. Here's what I did write down:

So you did a big fat sin,
Old man death about to do you in,
Don't worry; be happy.

If you broke your marriage vow,
It was Lent but you ate a cow,
Don't worry; be happy.


Rev. Eric J Brown said...

Put on a smile and shake those hands
They'll all think your church is grand.
Don't worry, Be Happy

Call it Gospel though it's really law
smart advice to wow them all,
Don't Worry, Be Happy

Skip over Christ for Christian living,
That's sure to help the giving
Don't Worry, Be Happy

Tell them they're perfect with no warts,
That will keep the sermons short,
Don't Worry, Be Happy

AGGGH - I'll be doing this all day! Grrr!
