SISTER JOSEPHINE (Jake Thackray) Recorded by : Jake Thackray; Colcannon; The MacCalmans. Oh, Sister Josephine What do all these policemen mean By coming to the convent in a grim limousine After Sister Josephine? While you, Sister Josephine You sit with your boots up on the altar screen You smoke one last cigar What a funny nun you are The policemen say that Josephine's a burglar in disguise Big bad Norman - fifteen years on the run The sisters disbelieve it: No, that can't be Josephine Just think about her tenderness towards the younger nuns Oh, Sister Josephine They're searching the chapel where you've been seen The nooks and the crannies of the nun's canteen After Sister Josephine While you, Sister Josephine You sip one farewell Benedictine Before your au revoir A right funny nun you are Admittedly her hands are big and hairy And embellished with a curious tattoo Admittedly her voice is on the deep side And she seems to shave more often than the other sisters do Oh, Sister Josephine Founder of the convent pontoon team They're looking through your bundles of rare magazines After Sister Josephine While you, Sister Josephine You give a goodbye sniff of benzedrine To the convent budgerigar A bloody funny nun you are No longer will her snores ring through the chapel during prayers Nor her lustful moanings fill the stilly night No more empty bottles of altar wine come clunking from her cell No longer will the cloister toilet seat stand upright Oh, Sister Josephine Slipping through their fingers like vaseline Leaving them to clutch your empty crinoline After Sister Josephine While you, Sister Josephine Sprinting through the suburbs when last seen Dressed only in your wimple and your rosary A right funny nun you seem to be (Transcribed by Chris Collins)
