Miss Martha

This song is by ApologetiX and appears on the album Future Tense (2008).

This song is a parody of "Miss Murder" by AFI.
Chorus> Hey, Miss Martha, can I
Hey, Miss Martha, can I
Beg you to make some time for Jesus Christ

With angry looks she cooked
And set food down before Him
She never took a break at all
Then Martha said to Christ
I'm left to wash and dry
My sister pays no mind
She sits on her... behind

She was aghast perhaps
At how the Lord responded
He said relax and settle down
You've mopped and swept and wiped
It kept you occupied
And while it killed some time
You left the best behind

Martha looked as if she was a very busy bee
But she had a bee inside her bonnet
As the custom was she ran the house with guests around
Without help
Well, these dishes ain't just gonna go do themselves
And the silverware it needs some polish
Really, Lord, if I don't clean it never gets done
No one ever helps me, Lord, it's filthy -- that's the problem

Hey, Miss Martha, can I
Hey, Miss Martha, can I
Beg you to make some time for Jesus Christ

(Luke 10:38-42) (New International Version)
38As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. 39She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet listening to what he said. 40But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!"
41"Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things, 42but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her"
