You write these, too?

The Lambeth Talk

(With apologies to Noel Gay and Douglas Furber)

Lambeth we sometimes see,
The buildings are red the grass is green.
It hasn't got the Roman touch,
But that's never mattered very much.

We speak the Lambeth way,
And find that people are a bit too gay
And when we have a bit of speech
Oh,Boy.

Any time you're Lambeth way,
Any evening, any day,
You'll find us all
Doin' the Lambeth Talk,

Every little primate "Hal"
Is a good old Lambeth pal,
You'll find 'em all
Doin' the Lambeth Talk.

Everything's too free and easy,
Too "do as you darn well pleasy",
So we've made our way there
Gone there, stayed there.

Once you get down Lambeth way
Ev'ry ev'ning, ev'ry day,
You'll find yourself
Doin' the Lambeth Talk.

Or this:

Sur le pont d'Abuja
L'on y danse, l'on y danse
Sur le pont d'Abuja
L'on y danse tous en rond
Les beaux primats font comm' çà
Et puis encore comm' çà

Sur le pont d'Abuja
L'on y danse, l'on y danse
Sur le pont d'Abuja
L'on y danse tous en rond
Les beaux eveques font comm' çà
Et puis encore comm' çà

Sur le pont d'Abuja
L'on y danse, l'on y danse
Sur le pont d'Abuja
L'on y danse tous en rond
Les arcidiacres font comm' çà
Et puis encore comm' çà

Sur le pont d'Abuja
L'on y danse, l'on y danse
Sur le pont d'Abuja
L'on y danse tous en rond
Les beaux pretres font comm' çà
Et puis encore comm' çà

Sur le pont d'Abuja
L'on y danse, l'on y danse
Sur le pont d'Abuja
L'on y danse tous en rond
Les diacres font comm' çà
Et puis encore comm' çà

Sur le pont d'Abuja
L'on y danse, l'on y danse
Sur le pont d'Abuja
L'on y danse tous en rond
Les pieux momes font comm' çà
Et puis encore comm' çà

Caelius, I'm actually trying to write a rock / rap / pop opera about +Gene, +duncan, ++Rowan, etc. Imagine bishops, dancing bishops, in a chorus line. Can you believe it?

Caelius Spinator

That might be very entertaining. How about titling it, "Foolish and Fancy-Free (for Christ)"? I'm sure you've come up with a better name.

How about A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To General Convention?

Guys in Mitres?

No Schism, Please, We're Anglican?

Or perhaps not. In any case, now I have to listen to "Roxane."

Phil Snyder

Thanks John,

Now I won't be able to get "Roxanne" out of my head!

Other titles:
"A Cleric Line"
"The Bishop of the Opera"
"My Fair Bishop"
"

YBIC,
Phil Snyder

Nick

That's awesome!

J. C. Fisher

Love it, John.

The only thing I'm seeing right now is Monty Python . . .
