To the tune of The Flintstones theme




Paradise Lost, Condensed

Man's first

Disobedience

And the fruit of that forbidden tree!

In the

Gard'n of Eden!

(It's a place in old theology.)

 

That's right:

He's the serpent with the hiss!

Mucking

Up the Book of Genesis!

 

At the

Tree of Knowledge,

You'll have a yabba-dabba-dapple

(Delicious apple)

You'll have a sinful time!

This is hilarious! An antithesis of Milton's deadpan seriousness!

Thank you for these two lighthearted musical interludes, as well as the more somber "Background" poem.
