Description
For your amusement - a non secular sounding secular song of the Anglican chant variety.... written June 2011

It is an exercise in four part harmony writing and the subject is David Hasselhoff who for some reason or other we seem to see a lot of in our country lately. So it came to pass.

Lyrics
1. And it came to pass, that a vision of much wonder and beauty, would be seen to walk amongst us.

It will elevate our poor and misshapen souls, to a level of joyfulness we had previously not thought possible.

2. This profound aura will surely fill our hearts and souls with inspiration, and even enlightenment.

And we will feel a new euphoria in our hearts which we will succour from bathing in his reflected glory.

3. And how will we know him, and what will be his name, cried the poor, in their jubilation.

It is he said the Lord, who appeared to us once before in a previous carnation as Mitch, and who shows much modesty and charm, and they were sore afraid.

4. Oh no said the people, do you speak of the one known as Hasselhoff?

We say unto you, that we have not sinned, offended or provoked in a manner, to warrant such retribution.

5.Fear not, the vanity and swagger of muffins.

Arrows of fire will rain down upon them, and the shining sword of modesty split them in twain, and they will spend an eternal hell, in prime time plum duff television.

6.But he will rise again, and once more speak to his faithful followers.

Where upon, with little piggy eyes a glaze, and a freshly embalmed and stretchy look, he will reign again, in everlasting glory.


A-bleedin'-men.

I'm sorry you feel cheated
Re the 'bleedin' bit that is what was on the original and got left on the lyrics by accident - it was also done in Cockney type accent but when I listened to it I thought it sounded not very good so it was changed gor the more conventional and plagal amen insted.

Thank you for listening Julian and I appreciate your comments, I'll try and get it right next bleedin' time.

Taffy.

Absolutely unique!
Great work John. Wonderful lyrics and great performance.

I really like the shifts in melody and little turn arounds at the end of lines.

Cheers

This consists of several double chant all of which have to be worked out and then written down, my narrow vocal range makes it impossible for me to observe and obey all the rules required.

I'm glad you enjoyed it.

The subject....
Is mute at this point, Man kind has screwed things so bad, I don't care
who comes back to save the world, they are going to look at all this
stupidness and say I've got better things I could be doing......
You laugh at the hole deal, but we are not smart enough to even see
the difference between good and evil any more, and we the people are
being ripped off by the most evil among us and we out number them
100,000 to 1

well yes - whatever you say -
This is a joke, surely even you can see this. These are not meant to be thought provoking lyrics ! most of us know David Hasseloff is not Messiah II ..... c'mon lighten up a little. look at it all as a 'hole'

Sorry
That D.H. has invaded the shores of the U. K. He's big in Germany. Maybe the next song should be how D. H. is retooling the German war machine for an invasion of Bay Watch.

Well done, woof.

but do I detect a hint of gloat ? I have heard he is or was going out with a Welsh gal not far from where I live.......... I knew I shouldn't have written this but I was so impressed after seeing his film Anaconds 3 which I urge you to watch if you have not already so done. - The snake in it is brilliant !!!
