Farewell song to ECUSA (VAIN)
The Waffling Anglican ^ | 10/17/2005 | The Waffling Anglican

Leavin’ ECUSA
(to the tune of Sloop John B, with apologies to the Beach Boys )

My whole family and me,
Worshipped with the COE,
Genuflectin’ away
And scoffin’ at Rome.

We didn’t know
Just how quick we would go.
Ahh, this church is so broke up,
I can’t call it my home.

At first, things didn’t seem big
And I didn’t wanna sound like a prig,
So I kept all my doubts to myself
And I just went along.

I didn’t mind women priests,
Just couldn’t care in the least,
We’ll just take the collections
And keep on singin’ our songs.

Then all the powers that be
Started dissin’ the Great Trinity.
They even called into question
Christ’s duh-vin-i-ty.

No objections came up
From the local Bishop.
And we found ourselves wonderin’,
How can such things be?

I saw their Druid Eucharist.
Saw they marched with abortionists.
Saw how they went and made holy

Time to take down the flag
When the bishops wear drag.
I think I’m now ready
For some new scenery.

We don’t need to be glum;
Can go join the Continuum,
Or we can find us some shelter
‘Neath a Maronite dome.

Try a mass Tridentine,
Check out things Byzantine,
But this church is so broke up,
We’re gonna find a new home.

My apologies; perhaps I’d best stick with the day job.

It's actually pretty good! Not that familiar with the tune so I can tell if your new words fit "ok", but just as a "poem" it is good, if sad.

Good luck to you in your search for holy truth, I'm taking the liberty of pinging the FR king of parodys to your lyrics, I'm sure he'll give you good advice, if he thinks it's needed.

LOL! Saw this on my blog-rounds yesterday, but had reached my ping limit and so noted it for today. You've spared me the effort of posting -- thanks!

Traditional Anglican ping, continued in memory of its founder Arlin Adams.

FReepmail sionnsar if you want on or off this moderately high-volume ping list (typically 3-9 pings/day).
This list is pinged by sionnsar, Huber and newheart.

Here's a bit of the tune (courtesy of the Beach Boys):

Sloop John B

You probably know it, you just don't know you do.

Words fit the tune pretty well!
