Bishop Robinson

The blog ‘seeking spirit’ shared this reworking of the classic Simon and Garfunkel song “Mrs. Robinson” and I thought that some readers (at the very least the Episcopal ones) would get a kick out of it:

Bishop Robinson

Chorus:
And here’s to you, Bishop Robinson,
Jesus loves you more than you will know.
God bless you, please, Bishop Robinson.
Heaven holds a place for you today,
Hey, hey, hey

We’d like to know a bit about your sexuality
We’d like to help you learn be our guest.
Look around you, all you see are sympathetic eyes,
Stroll around at Lambeth, just don’t force us in a mess.

Go back in the hiding place where no one ever knows.
Stay there in the closet with the rest.
Just a little service to our Anglican affair.
Most of all, please, hide it from the press.

Koo-koo-ka-choo, Bishop Robinson,
Jesus loves you more than you will know.
God bless you, please, Bishop Robinson.
Heaven holds a place for those who pray,
Hey, hey, hey

Sitting on a sofa on a Sunday afternoon
Don’t think about your marriage or your fate.
Try to laugh, and not shout about it,
Now you’ve got to choose
Every way you look at this you lose.

Where have you gone, Jesus, Lamb of God
Your children turn their lonely eyes to you.
What’s that you say, Bishop Robinson.
The Holy Spirit guides and comforts you.
Woo woo woo. Woo woo woo.
