Nigel Parsons Songs based on Cohen Hallelujah (6) RE: Songs based on Cohen Hallelujah 24 Sep 20


May 2017 our local community choir did a trip to Malta. One of our prepared songs (for concerts there) was "Hallelujah", and I felt it needed a parody, naming some of the names (Phil= Accompanist, Justine=Choir Director, Paul=general organiser)

Malta 2017
The choir have learned a secret chord,
To raise the roof, and praise the Lord.
And Phil, you’ve got your music with you, do you?
The floors we’re on are the fourth & fifth,
The older ones can use the lift.
If you’ve got luggage, we can bring it to you.
Halleluiah, Halleluiah, Halleluiah, Halleluiah,


The choir all give the best we’ve got.
Some sing LOUD, but not a lot.
Emotion of the words sometimes get to you.
The choir sings, and starts to ‘Sway’.
While Justine’s arms just wave away.
You really should be watching her, but do you?
Halleluiah (*4)


And now we’re on the Malta trip.
We’ve had a meal, some had a ‘dip’.
And some just kept on drinking, what’s it to you?
It’s being/been enjoyed by all of us.
And thank you Paul, it’s worth the fuss.
Do you (all) want singing on the bus, now do you?
Halleluia (*4)
‘come on everyone’!
Halleluia (*4)
