"And Ophelia, with her dad kilt
By the man she wished to marry
After saying it with flowers
She committed hari-kari."
--Oor Hamlet

"The Earth will soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine" --New Britain (Amazing Grace (Sacred Harp 42 on the top))

"Now shall my inward joys arise
And break into a song
Almighty love inspires my heart
And pleasure tunes my tounge
" --Africa (Sacred Harp 170-something)

and to continue the Tom Leher theme: "We are the Folk Song Army; every one of us cares
....
There are innocuous folksongs, yeah
But we regard them with scorn
The people who sing them have no social conscience
Why, they don't even care if Jimmy crack corn!
....
It doesn't matter if you cram a couple of extra syllables into a line
It sounds more ethnic if it ain't good English
And it don't even gotta rhyme. (Excuse me, rhyne.)"
