They’re raising the roof of the church today!

The building’s in scaffold, a big yellow crane

Is removing the ridge tiles on top of the nave

And disturbing the sleep of the souls in their graves.

Oh, they’re raising the roof of the church today!

 

They’re raising the roof of the church today!

The foreman’s come round to check it’s ok.

The boys are excited and shouting, ‘Hooray!’

They’re having such fun.  What more can I say?

Cos they’re raising the roof of the church today.

 

They’re raising the roof of the church today!

The unctious incumbent looks ashen and grey.

The Duke and the Duchess are in disarray.

They cancelled the trials since it poured yesterday!

Now they’re raising the roof of the church today! 

 

They’re raising the roof of the church today!

The organist thunders, parishioners pray   

To God, their salvation, on this judgement day

Now the pathway to heaven’s wide open to gaze  

Since they raised up the roof on the church today.
