Look What They've Done to Your Psalm

My old friend the Undergroundpewster is griping again about the lectionary committee cutting up the scriptures. This time the Psalm for last Sunday was sliced and diced. This inspired me to do the same to an old song.

(Apologies to Melanie)

Look what they've done to your Psalm, Lord
Look what they've done to your Psalm
Well it's the only thing we could get half right
And they've gutted it till its wrong, Lord
Look what they've done to your Psalm

Look what they've done to my faith, Lord
Look what they've done to my faith
Well they picked it like a chicken bone
And they think I'm half gone, Lord
Look what they've done to my faith.

Wish I could find a good church to live in
Wish I could find a good church
Well, if I could find a real good church
I'd never have to come and hear Lord
just what they do to your Psalms.

La la la...
Look what they've done to your Psalm

But maybe it'll all be all right, Lord
Maybe it'll all be OK
Well, if the people start buying tears
I'll be rich some day, Lord
Look what they've done to your Psalm.

Ils ont changé ton Psaume, Père
Ils ont changé ton Psaume
C'est la seule chose que je peux faire
Et çe n'est pas bon, Père
Ils ont changé ton Psaume

Look what they've done to your Psalm, Lord
Look what they've done to your Psalm, Lord
Well they cut it up in a p.c. fit
And turned it upside down, Lord
Look what they've done to your Psalm.

Ils ont changé ton Psaume, Père...

Look what they've done to your Psalm, Lord
Look what they've done to your Psalm
Well it's the only thing we could get half right
And they've gutted it till its wrong, Lord
Look what they've done to your Psalm.

I would laugh, but for some reason I want to cry.
