Dan Barker's lyrics just had to be shared:

Nothing Fails Like Prayer (Dan Barker)

The farmers pray for precipitation, and they say "in God we trust"
Then along comes a drought that drives their crops out and turns their prayers into dust.
The next time they need some assistance, they should take the advice of Mark Twain
Who said it's better to check the weather report before you pray for rain.

Nothing fails like prayer.
Nothing fails like prayer.
Use your mind and you will find that nothing fails like prayer.

It's the final week of the school year, but you haven't studied your best
So you stay up and cram for the final exam and pray for God's help on the test.
So you answer the questions with assurance that the Lord would help you sail through.
When the results are returned, what have you learned? God is no smarter than you.

Nothing fails like prayer.
Nothing fails like prayer.
Use your mind and you will find that nothing fails like prayer.

I posted about the other song on the same video, "Beware of Dogma", in "Atheist Themed Music and Reasoned Rhythms". (I made a few corrections to the lyrics, which I had hastily put here earlier.)
