Summa Lovin’

What does the world need? More theological parody songs, that’s what. So on behalf of the Oriel Theology community, please enjoy this Aquinas-based homage, sung to the tune of “Summer Nights,” from Grease.

Does anyone write songs about Scotus?

Summa loving
Happened so fast.
Summa loving,
I think it will last.

Read a book, great as can be!
But not one book, more like sixty-three!

A summary of all theology,
it contains all the deepest insights!
Well oh well oh well oh oh—
Tell me more, tell me more:
does he prove God exists?
Tell me more, tell me more:
can detached souls subsist?

You won’t believe it— God has a son!
He lives in hypo-static union!
He died for us, in order to save.
He rose and then walked out of his grave.

A summary of all theology,
it contains all the deepest insights!
Well oh well oh well oh oh—
Tell me more, tell me more:
what’s his doctrine of grace?
Tell me more, tell me more:
how can God have a face? [ST 1.12.11]

***

I grew colder, as I learned man’s last end.
Predestination? Lord, I thought we were friends.
But then Aquinas explained it to me.
God’s causation doesn’t make you un-free!

Well oh well oh well oh oh—
Tell me more, tell me more: what’s the natural law?
Tell me more, tell me more: can he account for the Fall?

A summary of all theology, which contains all the deepest insights!
Well oh well oh well oh oh—
