The Lyrics

Inspired by passing a church which had a sign up where the "Fix the Roof Fund" had been changed to the "Replace the Church Door Fund"... it made me think that rewriting some hymns could subliminally make the congregation more ready to help.
Give me tiles on the roof, stop it leaking
Give me tiles for the roof, again
Put those tiles on the roof, stop it leaking
Stop it leaking every time it rains

[Chorus:]
Bring a spanner, bring a spanner
Bring a spanner, help me fix this thing
Bring a spanner, bring a spanner
A big spanner please do bring

Give me wood for the door, 'cause it's rotting
Give me wood for the door, again
Give me wood for the floor, it's collapsing
It's collapsing every time it rains

[Chorus]

Give me toys for the kids, stop 'em whining
Give me toys for the kids, again
It annoys me when kids don't stop whining
Don't stop whining every time it rains

[Chorus]

Give me cash for the fund, keep me spending
Give more cash for the fund, again
We need cash in the fund, neverending
More repairs needed each time it rains

[Chorus]

Don't know the OS, but it's quite a cute concept. And of course it's always nice to envision Phil repairing the Church... ;-)
