Music For The Hard Of Meaning – day three #songchallenge #music

Next up on  this musical saga, and it is back to humour. I love, as many do, Monty Python and they have done many great comic songs but for today I give you this number because (a) it is truly upbeat like an Anthony Newly jolly (b) it is subversive and points out the absurdity of the strict tenets of organised religion (c) it’s rude. I mean, what’s not to like?

Every Sperm Is Sacred

There are Jews in the world.
There are Buddhists.
There are Hindus and Mormons, and then
There are those that follow Mohammed, but
I’ve never been one of them.

I’m a Roman Catholic,
And have been since before I was born,
And the one thing they say about Catholics is:
They’ll take you as soon as you’re warm.

You don’t have to be a six-footer.
You don’t have to have a great brain.
You don’t have to have any clothes on. You’re
A Catholic the moment Dad came,


Every sperm is sacred.
Every sperm is great.
If a sperm is wasted,
God gets quite irate.

Every sperm is sacred.
Every sperm is great.
If a sperm is wasted,
God gets quite irate.

Let the heathen spill theirs
On the dusty ground.
God shall make them pay for
Each sperm that can’t be found.


This challenge comes from Willow initially and then Ritu; here’s the rules which I’ve ignored (a bit). But go and check theirs because they are both lovely..

The rules are:
Post a song a day for five consecutive days.
Post what the lyrics mean to you.  (Optional)
Post the name of the song and video.
Nominate 1 or 2 bloggers each day of the challenge.

It’s the nominate piece that I don’t like; I know this is an imposition but let’s have a think? Nope, no one. Maybe tomorrow

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    This is a classic song and should be sung in schools up and down the land every morning in assembly. I bey assemblies don’t even exist anymore, do they?

  4. Priceless. Now, should a little girl with no front teeth know about spillage on dusty ground? 🙂

  7. HaHA! I didn’t know this song existed. Our Admin lady at work has a giant plastic sperm on a keyring (she swears it doesn’t belong to her but it is pinned up on her board)! You have got to wonder at her taste! 🙂
