Visiting Teaching – Song (funny)

THREE MONTHS OF VISITING TEACHING
(tune: “My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean”
(First and second groups alternate the first six verses.
Both groups sing the last verse.)
Author – Sister Linda Butterfield from Hollywood, Florida adapted by Sister Beverley Ramsay

FIRST GROUP
1
My husband is sick with pneumonia.
My children have measles, you see.
The dog’s throwing up in the kitchen.
Oh please send my V.T.’s to me!
Please send, please send, Oh please send my V.T’s to me, to me,
OH PLEASE! Send Oh please send my Visiting Teachers to me.
3
This broken leg’s getting so pesky,
I can’t do my work, you can see.
I’d call up somebody to help me,
But my telephone’s lost in debris.
Please send, please send, Oh please send my V.T’s to me, to me,
OH PLEASE! Send Oh please send my Visiting Teachers to me.
5
My husband is not here – he’s working.
My kids are at school all the day.
So here I sit, sad and lonely,
And this is when you’ll hear me pray:
Please send, please send, Oh please send my V.T’s to me, to me,
OH PLEASE! Send Oh please send my Visiting Teachers to me.

SECOND GROUP
2
Oh sister I’m sorry to hear this.
If only my time were just mine.
But look how the sun it is shining,
I have to hang clothes on the line.
Sorry, sorry,
I’m sorry we can’t come today, today.
Sorry, sorry,
I’m sorry we can’t come today.
4
Oh mercy, you have quite a problem,
But I really don’t know what to do.
I fear that I have an appointment,
And my hairdresser, she needs me too.
Sorry, sorry,
I’m sorry we can’t come today, today.
Sorry, sorry,
I’m sorry we can’t come today.
6
Dear sister, we know how you’re feeling.
Our sympathy, we’ll give you some.
Our hearts are just filled to o’erflowing,
But that doesn’t mean we will come.
Sorry, sorry,
I’m sorry we can’t come today, today.
Sorry, sorry,
I’m sorry we can’t come today.

BOTH GROUPS TOGETHER

Whenever your sisters have problems,
And turn with those problems to you;
Be ready and willing and able
To do all you can possibly do!
Say: Gladly, gladly, YES!
Gladly we WILL come today, today.
Say: Gladly, gladly, YES!
Gladly we WILL come today.
