All Things Dull And Ugly Lyrics

Artist: Monty Python
Album: Monty Python's Contractual Obligation Album

All things dull and ugly,
All creatures short and squat,
All things rude and nasty,
The Lord God made the lot.
Each little snake that poisons,
Each little wasp that stings,
He made their brutish venom.
He made their horrid wings.

All things sick and cancerous,
All evil great and small,
All things foul and dangerous,
The Lord God made them all.

Each nasty little hornet,
Each beastly little squid--
Who made the spikey urchin?
Who made the sharks? He did!

All things scabbed and ulcerous,
All pox both great and small,
Putrid, foul and gangrenous,
The Lord God made them all.

A logical extension from All Things Bright and Beautiful - god has responsibility for all cruel and nasty things in nature as well as the good. If you assume that god exists, that is.

stunner 112: in the words of The Doctor, I rather love you.

And Kudos to Jane for the intellctual interpretation.

Basically if someone believes in a god they can't just praise the good stuff, but praise the bad stuff. Maybe there's a reason that they focus on the good stuff only, one wouldn't want to lose faith in something they've had ingrained.

I get why this is funny - it is quite witty after all.

It saddens me though that it only takes a Monty Python song to persuade some that God, if he exists, is the author of evil and suffering. Could it be that all of the most beautiful and wonderful things in creation are a remnant of what once was, and what is corrupt and awry is the handiwork of those who thought they knew better than their Creator?

I make choices daily (regretfully) that contribute toward the chaos of our world... am I alone in this? Or is my life a microcosm of humanity's condition?

Apologize for the heavy comments in the midst of the lighthearted responses above... just needed to share.

Its point is simply that it's an answer to theists, usually Christians, who come out with the cliche, when they refer to one of the many beautiful things in nature," How can anyone believe that all this happened by accident? Surely something as wonderful as this must have a creator." Well, if you like, I say,just like the ingenuity that goes into, for example, the disease rabies, or the tapeworm.

I looked this up so I can learn the words. Thank you for uploading it.

I response to the comment above "and what is corrupt and awry is the handiwork of those who thought they knew better than their Creator?

Nasty things evolved millions, if not billions of years before humans came along. The universe is chaotic and meaningless, just accept and get on with your life as best you can.

Your fired
by Pedant on 6/19/2017 8:05am
Actually, it's "You're fired".
by Pedant on 6/19/2017 8:09am
Oh, and by the way, all the dates are wrong. There isn't a 16th month, and so I suspect that "Ponderings" added his comment on 16/9/2012. Just so you Americans know...

Facepalm. No, it's not a commentary on theology, it's a COMEDY SKETCH. The Pythons succeed once again in simultaneously making both fundamentalist believers and frothing atheists look ridiculous - the former for being indignant at paraphrasing a childrens' song and the latter for thinking it is in any way an affirmation of THEIR chosen equally unprovable theism.
If either side really are dumb enough to take the song seriously, the answer to why god 'made' nasty stuff instead of just nice stuff, the answer is in Genesis. Near the front. But preschool children do not need that, they need wonder at beauty. So having 'children' sing this parody is... COMEDY. Nothing more. Nothing less. Frankly, people, "Duh".

Wrong and went on too long.
Satire = comedy AND commentary, sucka.
by Paula on 5/15/2021 1:04pm
Hilarious and wonderful.

...paraphrasing a childrens' song...

No, it's not a children's song!!!

Comedy, the ultimate sanity in a crazy, mixed-up, complex world of good, bad, and, worst of all, indifference / ignorance. Thank providence for Monty Python.
