What do you guys think of this one, I made it up. The tune is 99 bottles of beer on the wall.

99 theses on the wall
99 theses on the wall
Put it on the door, start a war, 99 theses on the wall

It's causing heresy
It's causing heresy
People are readin the 99 theses on the wall

We have to run and hide
We have to run and hide
The church is out for blood
The church is out for blood
They want to kill all who read the 99 theses on the wall.

Whiskey in the jar is an old Irish folk song originally remade for rock and roll by Thin Lizzy, Metallica just covered their version. Each rock and roll version took in less and less and verses of the original and skewed the story in the song.
