Episcopalians (to the tune of California Gurls)

Decided to improve the lyrics to This Song. Needs a special video.

Spoken:
The lord be with you fellow seekers
lift up your hearts to pray

(sung)
I know a church
where your mind will be rewarded
wisdom and grace
to experience the transcendent
music and silence
serving the sick and homeless
The priests
guys and girls
celebrating with the people

It’s not fancy or cool
But we bless the food
so to change the world
when we worship together,
it’s communion
Oooooh oh oooooh

[Chorus]
Epscopalians
we’re in tradition
chausibles
zuchettas on top
incense, chant
and prayer
To lift your spirit
Ooooh, oooooh

Episcopalians
we’re humanistic
evangelical
and orthodox
Catholic too,
now the holy spirit
yay the trinity, trinity

[Verse 2]
Praise, what is good
speaking truth, hope and courage
admitting
our mistakes
but still bringing justice in the world.

Though they once had an empire
they seek freedom
for all peoples
bringing truth and hope
justice, mercy and kind
ne…ss

Episcopalians
We know tradition
Chausibles
Zuchettas on top
incense, chant
With prayer
to lift your spirit
Oooooh oh oooooh

Episcopalians
We’re sacramental
catholic – lite
and democratic
Mainline represent
Now swing your thurifer
Oooooh oh oooooh

[Rap]
small, strong
participatory
preparing people strong and steady
baptism and eucharist
With more if you need the prayers
we accomodate
the piety of what’s right
prayer
wisdom
experience

Anglican
with methodist
and lutheran
with wine
and bread
everyone
is included
just know
you’ve been changed
JC is everything

listening
serving
Witnessing
communities
soup kitchens and schools
no fools
just serving
and
Rowan archbishop
(Yeah)
he’s holding it together
you’re bringing
the apostolic faith
(Ohhh yeahh)

[chorus]
Episcopalians
We know tradition
Chausibles
Zuchettas on top
incense, chant
And bells
to lift your spirit
Oooooh oh oooooh

Episcopalians
We’re philosophical
catholic – lite
and democratic
Reformed represent
Now swing your thurifer
Oooooh oh oooooh

Rap:
(Episcopalians… episcopalians)
Episcopalians
they’re not Southern Baptists
(Episcopalians)

an ordered church
with liberty
(Episcopalians)
