The Bishop

by Dutch Courage



Like a bishop preaching masses
to the papers in his cabinet
there's a method to his madness
all tied up in force of habit

Where should he go?
Whom would he be?
I've got a feeling
that the Bishop is me

At the Head Matron's dwelling
under buttoned-up raiment
there's no question she's willing
'cause there's no other claimant

Where should she go?
Whom should she be?
I've got a notion
that the Head Matron's me

So, sing it once, once more with feeling
someone's floor could be your ceiling

He continues to write and record music in his STL City home.
