We Be Three Poor Singers
words by Carl Asch
music: old English madrigal
We be three poor singers, newly learned of voice,
And you must listen to our song, you really have no choice.
We care not if you wince in pain or cringe when we sing sour,
We care not if you shed a tear, for we're paid by the hour.
You may wonder why we're here, or how we show our face?
We could not find another job, and our uncle owns this place.
Carl Asch - high voice
Douglas S. Kondziolka - middle voice
Jim Hancock - low voice
