Baby Got...Book?

I've always been amazed at the tendency for people to try and hype up teen Christians by taking popular songs and rewriting the lyrics to make it an uber-Christian youth anthem. It's like they think that the tune is catchy enough to be caught in your head, so maybe if they just give you different, Jesus-loving lyrics, you'll not stray from the path.

Once again, the thought process seems to encourage blind obedience rather than informed choices.

Still, you've got to give them credit...a few of those songs are pretty inventive. It takes work to write whole new lyrics and keep them in time and meter with the original song. Take, for example, this video: Baby Got Book, by Dan "Southpaw" Smith. I got a laugh out of it. Don't care about the subject, but props to him for pulling it off.
