Glee Club poet seeks music for new poem
Vince Carella, a longtime singer in the Bayside Glee Club, recently wrote this poem to share with all. He would like someone to put some music to it. If you're interested, contact Vince at firstname.lastname@example.org.
New “Glee Club Anthem”, a poem by Vincent Carella
Glee Clubs from time immemorial, from Wales to Kalamazoo,
have been rendering versions tonsorial, melodies ancient and new.
Lush voices blending, soft or ascending, in the beauty of harmony pure,
the Glee Club holds a song in its heart and tradition meant to endure.
We sing of the lovely Sweet Adeline, or the Sweetheart of Sigma Chi,
from the "great American songbook" or Puccini's Butterfly.
It’s Rosemarie or Rosalie or Brown October Ale…
or a shanty from a whalers deck to tell a seaman’s tale.
This music so dear to the Glee Club, is held as a gift from on high,
our quest and our love of this gift from above is to keep the tradition alive.
So we say to all who listen to the song, the glorious song,..
and to those of you who love it as well, and are happily humming along,
We will keep up this grand old tradition, till our personal show is gone,
and we meet again in paradise where a Glee Club waits anon.
So sing lustily my chorister friends, to harmonies sweet baton,
the theme we've loved and voiced so well,…
Sing on brothers, Sing on………
