New Liturgical Piece for Holy Week

April 1, 2010

I have decided to harness my knowledge of Christian theology and ritual practice and to create a new liturgical piece for Maundy Thursday:

Maundy Thursday, so good to me,
Maundy Thursday, it was all I hoped it would be
Oh Maundy Thursday, Maundy Thursday couldn’t guarantee
That Maundy Thursday you would wash the feet of me.

Maundy Thursday, can’t stand that day,
Maundy Thursday, sometimes it just turns out that way
Oh Maundy Thursday, you gave me no warning of what was to be
Oh Maundy Thursday, how you could forget a towel for me.

Every other day, every other day,
Every other day of Holy Week is fine, yeah
But when Maundy Thursday comes, but when Maundy Thursday comes
You can find me cringin’ all of the time

Maundy Thursday, I don’t like my feet,
Maundy Thursday, barefoot in my seat
Oh Maundy Thursday, Maundy Thursday why did I fail
That Maundy Thursday to remember to cut my toe nails?

Every other day, every other day,
Every other day of Holy Week is fine, yeah
But when Maundy Thursday comes, but when Maundy Thursday comes
You can find me cringin’ all of the time

Maundy Thursday, …

(N.b. the date…)
