I wasn’t thinking of a quiz. The challenge was going to be to rewrite a Motown lyric in more proper English (for example, “What you want, baby I got it” might become “That which you require, dear, I do indeed possess”) and work it into the metrical pattern of a well-known Anglican hymn (Helmsley, say [“Lo, He Comes with Clouds Descending”], which, after all, so easily accommodates lengthily slurred syllables, and hence just about any text). Sounds like fun, nicht wahr? Care to give it a go?
The Providence Majorettes? Must check to see if they exist… Thanks, THEA.
