Richard Fairhurst Posted February 11, 2007 Share Posted February 11, 2007 One of our tenors (who wishes to remain anonymous) wrote this set of alternative words to go with a certain worship song which we had this morning. Enjoy. (In the true spirit of worship songs, you'll have to mangle the lines to get the words to fit.) I Am A New Creation 1. I am a new creation, But I can't hack this syncopation, Doubtless my efforts will be panned. No crescendo or dynamics, Dotted quavers? My heart panics, In the wrong places my notes land. And I will get it wrong, Throughout the whole day long, And I will moan, of what Dave Bilbrough's done. His song is getting me madder, Feel like shoving him off a ladder, There in the nettles he will land. 2. It's hard to sing salvation, Creased with rhythmic constipation, So no ovation comes to hand. Can't we scrap this crap cadenza? I'd rather have influenza, It really, really should be banned. And I can't sing it true, No matter what I do, But I will try, to bulldoze my way through. Fourth time, how am I faring? Straight at me Denise* is glaring Oh please just bury me in the sand. Extra chorus to end And I will waver on, Although that quaver's gone And left me high, and dry and out of time.. Does the note stop, or tie over? Time to leap from the cliffs of Dover, Not quite the ending I had planned, Not quite the ending I had planned... (* - choir leader) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
