(back) Subject: Gather us in At Good Shepherd (parody) From: Jlokken@aol.com Date: Sat, 4 Oct 1997 23:13:10 -0400 (EDT) A friend passed this along from the Internet. For what it's worth -- Newly discovered verses for the traditional yet cutting-edge and ever-popular tune, "Gather Us In." [*O Herr, versammle uns,* attr. Martinus Haugenensis, *Filistinisches Gesangbuch,* c. 1975.] "Gather us in at Good Shepherd" Here in this place babies are screaming, Shouldn't they all be banished away? Some folks are late and other are dreaming; Celebrate life, don't get carried away. Gather us in, the bored and the dozer, Blather us in with music inane; Call to us now and call the composer, We shall arise at the sound of his name. We are the old, we yearn for a face lift, We are the young, our lives are a mess, We can't remember English or hist'ry, Poetry, schmoetry, we could care less. Gather us in, the rich and the naughty, Blather us in, there's no right and wrong; Give us a break and send us a ticket Light-years away from the sound of our song. -- S. & S. Krantz, late XX Century.
