Please Let Me Sing in the Choir








Please let me sing in the choir, in the choir, 
please let me sing in the choir. 
One old man can't be all that bad, 
won't you please let me sing in the choir. 

I guess you'd say he's a fixture, 
around town they all knew his name. 
And every time the church bells rang, 
Uncle Jesse, he up and came. 
He always sat in the very same pew 
humming in a voice loud and rough. 
When it came to the Antioch Church house choir 
Uncle Jesse never heard enough. 

He always wanted to sing in the choir 
but he couldn't sing a lick don't you know 
Why, he tried out for the Antioch Choir, 
34 years in a row 

He always get to the try-outs early 
he wanted to try out first, 
but instead of his singing getting any better 
every year it just got a little worse. 

He said: 
Please let me sing in the choir, in the choir 
please let me sing in the choir 
one old man can't be all that bad, 
won't you please let me sing in the choir. 

One cloudy Sunday morning, 
I remember it was raining some 
The church bells rang and everybody came 
except Jesse, He didn't come. 
And everybody started getting worried, 
but they figured they'd start anyhow. 
Just as they did Jesse's voice came 
booming down from Heaven, 
and I don't know how. 

He said; 
I've found me a choir that'll let me sing, 
now I'm singing in the choir 
and I can raise my voice just as high as yours. 
Maybe just a little higher. 
Well I've found me a choir that'll let me sing 
now I'm singing in the choir. 
You folks down there can't hold me a light 
'cause I'm singing in the heavenly choir. 


Oh, I've found me a choir that'll let me sing, 
now I'm singing in the choir, 
and I can lift my voice just as high as yours. 
Maybe just a little higher. 
Oh, I've found me a choir that'll let me sing; 
now I'm singing in the choir. 
You folks down there can't hold me a light 
'cause I'm singing in the heavenly choir. 


Please let me sing in the choir, in the choir, 
please let me sing in the choir. 
One old man can't be all that bad, 
won't you please let me sing in the choir...
