NOT LIKE REAL EGYPTIAN Parody of “Walk Like an Egyptian” by The Bangles See: http://www.mormonthink.com/book-of-abraham-issues.htm The Book of Abraham is a work of LDS scripture, don't you know Translated by the Prophet Joe He got it from some old mummy scroll He claimed that it was written by the very hand of that Abraham But the experts say, oh hell no The whole thing is just a lousy sham Egyptologists say all of it's way off, way off, oh way way off... Not like real Egyptian Those mummy scrolls, they turned out to be just a funerary text No Abraham, say it ain't so It left many faithful Saints perplexed Joseph also tried to translate the pictures from off the scrolls he had But the experts say, oh hell no His translations all were really bad How could he, a prophet be when it's way off, way off, oh way way off... Not like real Egyptian "None of the characters on the papyrus fragments mentioned Abraham’s name or any of the events recorded in the book of Abraham. Mormon and non-Mormon Egyptologists agree that the characters on the fragments do not match the translation given in the book of Abraham... Scholars have identified the papyrus fragments as parts of standard funerary texts that were deposited with mummified bodies. These fragments date to between the third century B.C.E. and the first century C.E., long after Abraham lived." -Translation and Historicity of the Book of Abraham, lds.org Joseph also wrote his very own Egyptian grammar and alphabet Once again, the experts say, hell no It's about as wrong as you could get Now the church admits things aren't right, but only barely acknowledges And they must defend the Prophet Joe So they call on their apologists They'll say that Joseph saw the pictures on the papyrus and then he Let the inspiration start to flow But that really strains credulity It's all full of made-up bull and it's way off, way off, oh way way off... Not like real Egyptian Not like real Egyptian

DON'T BEAT IT Parody of “Beat It” by Michael Jackson See also: https://invisiblescubit.wordpress.com/2017/11/21/suicide-by-masturbation/ The bishop said, now that you’re turning twelve years old A deacon interview, we will have to hold So I said to myself, I'd better do what I’ve been told And don’t beat it, don’t beat it He could have asked about my spiritual state How much compassion do I demonstrate? But mostly he just said, you should never masturbate Don’t beat it I know you wanna real bad, but Don’t beat it, don’t beat it Pornographic smut, don’t read it Don’t spank your monkey Or polish your knob Let your little factory Do its own job And don’t beat it, don’t beat it Don’t beat it, don’t beat it I told him I have tried as hard as I can To not give in to urges like some worldly men But it gets really hard, oh so much harder when I don’t beat it, I don’t beat it He said, now, trust me, I can truly understand But you’ll be fine if you obey the Lord’s command Just hold that iron rod in the palm of your hand And don’t beat it I know you wanna real bad, but Don’t beat it, don’t beat it When it’s getting hard, saltpete it Don’t free your Willy Or play the skin flute Go to sleep only in your Sunday suit And don’t beat it, don’t beat it Your sperm is sacred, don’t deplete it Don’t milk your lizard Don’t charm your snake Take a cold shower And eat some Corn Flakes But don't beat it (guitar solo) Don’t beat it, don’t beat it If you get the urge, don’t feed it Don’t pull your taffy Don’t yank your crank Put temple pictures Inside your spank bank And don’t beat it, don’t beat it Your body's holy, don't mistreat it Don't grease your sausage Or play solo sax And let me know all about your private acts And don't beat it, don't beat it...

COUNTIN' UP ALL MY CHRISTMAS CARDS Parody of "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" by Brenda Lee See: http://infantsonthrones.com/bah-humbug-the-dallin-h-oaks-christmas-card-mini-smackdown/ Countin’ up all my Christmas cards And the number isn’t small When you’re Apostle Dallin H. Oaks That just goes along with the call Countin’ up all my Christmas cards But before I can say I'm done I have to carefully analyze The true worth of every one I will get a Pharisaical feeling when I read. If “Happy Holidays” is written, Someone’s asking to be smitten Countin’ up all my Christmas cards They had better not include “Seasons Greetings” or Heaven forbid, Baby Jesus in the nude When I read these cards that have no Christian sentiment I’ll throw them out upon first sight Like a gay couple who wants to stay the night Countin’ up all my Christmas cards Aren’t you glad you mailed one here, So I could complain about what you sent? How is that for Christmas cheer?
