In a silly mood from having watched the Mike Cope video on Youtube, I thought I would post something I wrote with a good friend of mine from graduate school, Paul McMullen. We wrote this in about 45 minutes one afternoon. It was pretty entertaining. Feel free to add lines/verses of your own!
It is entitled “Days of Elisha.” No disrespect here – just references to several of the wacky stories of the Bible. Just put it to the tune of “Days of Elijah” and it will all make sense.
These are the days of Elisha,
Sending out bears to kill men.
And these are the days of that naughty,
Bathsheba, bathing, seducing David.
And these are the days of Hosea.
He had to marry a whore.
These are the days of your servant, Jonah,
who won’t be the voice of the Lord.
Behold they come, lots of bears with claws.
Woman on the roof, taking her clothes off.
Hosea’s kids, lots of awful names.
Jonah’s in a whale, it’s all insane!
These are the days of Methusaleh,
When am I going to die?
And these are the days of that strong man,
Samson, he lost his hair and his eyes.
And these are the days of Isaiah,
God told me to lay in the buff.
And these are the days of Moses’, kids,
Mom, why’d you cutt off my stuff?
