GUEST,Fred Lyr Req: While the organ peeled potatoes... (80* d) While the organ peeled potatoes... 16 Jan 01

Are there any old choristers around that might have learned, and even better remembered, more of the lyrics to a take-off sung to the tune of "Silver Threads Among the Gold"? The only parts I remember go like this:

While the organ peeled potatoes,
Lard was rendered by the choir.



ending with:

"...the preacher's head resembles heaven,
There will be no parting there.

If anyone has any other parts to this, please post them.
Much Thanks.
