Poetic Licence: The Vicar Recruitment Rap
Thursday 15 July 1999
C of E its the one for me
We're talkin' 3 (feat. Trini-T.)
Your mobile soul-phone
Comes for free.
It's a Friends and Family to...
Gimme a V. Now gimme an I.
Add a CAR to the other side
Heaven's gate is a Park `n' Ride
Who d'ya call
when your granny's died?
Say that name with pride
Service time and the bells go clang
It's a happenin' clappenin' kinda thang
From a warm-up prayer in the vestibule
To a chilled out church
And an ambient Yule
Though the Sno B. Deep.
And the wind B. Krool
The smell of Faith is a cool Kagoul
V. for vespers. I for an Eye.
The sermon's hot.
But the ink ain't dry
For those in peril on the C
You who would A (pilgrim be)
No R&R on the Sabbath Day
Can the dude deliver?
More E vicar? Not for me
When the work comes in
Gotta make that call
Quit it." Paul.
(p.p. Father, Son
The Devil's illin'
But he's toast.
Vicar. As God as it gets.
