The Lyrics

If you do not know the OS, a low bit-rate MP3 can be found here
Monastery's Divine
Office is required at prime
Till then no chow can begin in frater
And as they go through the day
Remember the Hours that way
From Pope to the humblest of lay brothers

Canons are songs
Or prayers; those wafting chants they be
Benedicts love to hymn away
They be illuminating manuscriptery
'Tween sext and nones they work so hard

Dawn of day, time for matins
Sing Mass prep'ration again
In case some sleeping adjust to whispers
At nine-ish the terce shall apply
And compline about beddy-bye
Lauds in the morn; in evening: vespers

Canons are songs
Or prayers; those wafting chants lovely
'Til Cramner banned those tunes away
Sadly supplantin' Latin of the brev'ary
With that ol' English Evensong
With that ol' English Evensong...
