Minimalist wine

Bring on the dancing vicar

Bring on the dancing vicar,
keep them rolling in the aisle!
The time goes by much quicker
in the service with a smile. 

Call up the chuckling curate—
let humour be ordained!
We really can’t endure it
unless we’re entertained. 

Lead in the laughing pastor
with the twinkle in his eye!
Get those punchlines coming faster,
make us howl until we cry. 

Keep the congregation keener               
I say! I say! I say!
Skip the bread and the Ribena,
let’s just have the cabaret.
