|The final rehearsal has come to a close,
But we’ll not be leaving till everyone knows
When we will be singing, when we will perform
So we’ll be prepared in our very best form.
Shhhh. Everyone listen. Now what did they say?
But that being said, I perceive and confess
While my voice tries to blend in harmonious accord
While I must admit that I wouldn’t mind perfection
The moment’s arrived! It’s time that we bring
Oh look. Here’s the field where we’re supposed to perform;
The choir has all gathered; we’re ready to start
Proclaim to these herdsmen! Sing out ye vast throng!
