The Lyrics

Inspired by the folks who storm the pews 3 times per year when Ashes, Lilies & Poinsettias are present. Complete with HandFart fills and a token solo. Happy Ash Wednesday y'all!
As I begin my yearly Lenten Journey
With ashes smeared on my forehead.
From dust I came and dust I shall return to,
That's the plan God has-for-the-dead.

Lobster, Shrimp combined with Jumbo Crab cakes
Are all approved in place of Beef,
Avoid the burgers, steak and broiled pork chops,
Opt for fish from the Coral Reef.

Chocolate, don't-let-me-catch-you-eating Chocolate,
You know it's worth repeating, chocolate
Cravin’ every kind of dark and white
Don't take a bite.

So don't you smile, or laugh or even giggle,
Sober nights and somber days.
Just wear a frown and dance without a wiggle,
Like Tuna without mayonnaise.

HAND FART SOLO

Chocolate, don't-let-me-catch-you-eating Chocolate,
You know it's worth repeating, chocolate
Cravin’ every kind of dark and white
Don't take a bite.

As I begin my yearly Lenten Journey
With ashes smeared on my forehead.
From dust I came and dust I shall return to,
That's the plan God has-for-the-dead.
