Town Hall Song Lyrics
Saturday, April 9, 2005

Hey folks do we have a show
Just like they did a long time ago
We got a big band, a much of hot shots
A terrific pianist named André Watts
And we have Odetta, a legend of jazz
And blues and folk, what a presence she has
So light up the lights and let's hear the drums
Live from New York, here it comes.

Hey folks its your big chance
Get a song in your hear, get the lead out of your pants.
We've got music and singing and comedy
At least I think so but it's not up to me
The theater's packed and that is the truth
I am a Lutheran who's trying to get Luth
The lights are dimming, the curtain parts
And I'm hoping to win your hearts!
