Satan Loves Me
Tune: Guess!
Author: Unknown

Found on Yahoo Answers, subsequently rapidly deleted!

As a raised Lutheran, I find this incredibly brilliant Satirical Parody. fall about funny, but that may be me....


Satan loves me
This I know
For the Christians tell me so
Fame and wealth to him belong
**** the weak and in him be strong

Yeah, Satan loves me
Yeah, Satan loves me
Yeah, Satan loves me
The Christians tell me so

Do it if it hurts no one
Don't hold back,
Have lots of fun
Don't waste time on God's great plan
Favor yourself all you can

Yeah, Satan loves me
Yeah, Satan loves me
Yeah, Satan loves me
The Christians tell me so

Don't lie to yourself all day
Wisdom is great Satan's way
Love those who deserve your love
And to ingrates, give the shove


Yeah, Satan loves me
Yeah, Satan loves me
Yeah, Satan loves me
The Christians tell me so

If someone has done you wrong
Get revenge and you'll be strong
Honor those who keep their deals
Those who don't just want free meals

Yeah, Satan loves me
Yeah, Satan loves me
Yeah, Satan loves me
The Christians tell me so

Though man is an animal
He's in fact above them all
Things the Christians call our sins
Lead us to all of our wins

Yeah, Satan loves me
Yeah, Satan loves me
Yeah, Satan loves me
The Christians tell me so

Satan has been the best friend
Of the church from start to end
With his help it has for years
Ruled our lives with guilt and fears

Yeah, Satan loves me
Yeah, Satan loves me
Yeah, Satan loves me
The Christians tell me so

This sounds like a parody of "Ballad of Mary Magdalene" by Richard Shindell.

This ditty does sort of clear the air.

Acorn4: It's a parody (in the folkie sense of the word) of the Sunday-school hymn "Jesus Loves Me":

Jesus loves me, this I know,
For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong:
We are weak, but He is strong, etc.

The "Ballad of Mary Magdalene" is self-parodying (in the literary sense of the word), IMO. "It was his career or mine"!
