So Render (To Caesar)

This song is by ApologetiX and appears on the album Recovery (2009).

This song is a parody of "Surrender" by Cheap Trick.
Matthew told me that the Roman I.R.S. likes Jews
He also told me, pay your way, you never know what they'll tax
Just the other day I heard of the soldiers hauling off
Some income-needy chump for holding out

Money's always tight
But taxing's all right
It just seems a bit severe
So render to Caesar but don't give yourself away

Peter says, yeah, Matthew's right -- they're greedy, tough, and mean
Before repenting Matthew worked taking tax for those Philistines
Now I had heard to tax the Jews was only for the Lord
So tell me is it wrong for Rome to own us all these years?
Whenever that one was brought to Jesus
You know what He said?
Every dime you've got has Caesar
Where they put the head
When I look at Roman cash there's Romans on the front
To Romans render what is Rome's and give God whatever's God's
Matthew's all right, Mark is all right, Luke is all right, John's all right
They all are right

Then Jesus said to them, "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's
And to God what is God's." And they were amazed at him
