Farewell to Father Martin

A FAREWELL DITTY FROM THE CHOIR

1. Martin, Martin, what are we going to do?
You're departing just when we've got used to you!
You preach with great zeal and power,
For hour, after hour, after hour!
But when you're brief, there's great relief!
We'll get home in a week or two!
2. Martin, Martin, what are we going to do?
You're departing just when we've got used to you!
Sou sing with a manner holy,
But very, very slowly!
And then we find you're way behind
and we just have to wait for you!
3. Martin, Martin, what are we going to do?
You're departing just when we've got used to you!
May God bless your new endeavour.
And may you never, ever,
Forget Saint Clare's in all your prayers
- And then we'll do the same for you!
