Praise The Lord, And Start The Persecution

Down went the banner; the judge had sealed its fate
Down went the banner; the protests were too late
Up jumped the students, the godly, Christian squad
And when they pledged allegiance, they shouted UNDER GOD!, saying

Praise the Lord, and start the persecution
Praise the Lord, and start the persecution
Praise the Lord, and start the persecution
And we’ll all* stay free!

Praise the Lord, protect our institution
Praise the Lord, and find us a solution
Praise the Lord, and down with evolution
Cos the Lord made me!

Yes, the Cranston people yelled it
The learned judge beheld it
He saw what he was not supposed to see!

Praise the Lord, let’s start a revolution
All aboard, and fuck the constitution
Praise the Lord, we’re after restitution
So we all* stay free

Praise the Lord, and start the persecution
Praise the Lord, and start the persecution
(Can’t afford, without your contribution
Cos it’s far from free!)

*all Christians, that is.

My version is based on the original Frank Loesser song, but I couldn’t find a video that contained it. Video, for those who don’t know the song, after the jump:

    Is it weird that the only reason I remember this song is because it plays over one of the missions in ‘Mafia II’? Especially ironic, given that the PC is a WWII vet and that the mission is the first one that you are armed in.

    Catchy tune, though.
