Tune: “Five-Foot-Two (Has Anybody Seen My Girl?)”

Nice and new,
And oh! what that FiveTwo could do!
Has anybody seen my church?

Turned-up band,
Sleight of hand,
Church growth, on oath, ain’t it grand!
Has anybody seen my church?

Now if you run into
A Five-dash-Two
Khaki pants
And wacky plants,
Bet your life there is no cure!

But could they grow,
Could they fool,
Could they, could they, look real cool!
Has anybody seen my church?

  1. Daniel Bliese :What’s next, I wonder. The Vatican Rag? Oh, wait, Tom Lehrer already did that…

    As a matter of fact, back in 2000, when I was the teaching assistant for Dr. James Voelz in his NT Greek class, I wrote a song called “The Voelzian Rag,” using Tom Lehrer’s “Vatican Rag” as my template.

  2. Thanks for taking me back to my high school swing choir days, but now those memories will ever be tainted by American Evangelicalism. 🙂
