TO BE AN EPWORTH
In order to become us, one must fully qualify And pass a test most rigorous (not simply really try) And always raise the standard till ridiculously high To be an Epworth
It helps if one is born into the natur’l fam’ly line ‘Tho many have, through marriage, earned their ownership just fine By holding Epworth principles as though they were Divine So they’re an Epworth
One mustn’t ever testify that they would rather pass A stiff libation offered in a bottle or a glass At eventide or daybreak whether being lad or lass To stay an Epworth
One always must be quite prepared to help another soul In need of food or lodging or cigarette to roll Or to provide a fiver to a buddy in the hole To pass as Epworth
Political correctness must not ever place a halt To sharing wit and humor from the massive Epworth Vault If foreign or trans-gendered - Hey - it’ really ain’t my fault That I’m an Epworth
And like, or love or hate us, we shall all stick to our guns For we are the elite - the crème de crème - the chosen ones And I’m forever thankful that the surname of my sons Is bloody Epworth
My Christmas wish to Epworth-ville is for ten thousand aeons Of future conjugality for married Epworth lions Resulting in the births of countless thousand Epworth scions Thank God we’re EPWORTH!
