  • Song Lyrics:
    (Parody of "The Battle Hymn Of The Republic")
    I'm singing you the ballad
    Of a great man of the cloth
    His name was Harry Lewis
    And he worked for Irving Roth

    He died while cutting velvet
    On a hot July the 4th
    But his cloth goes shining on

    Glory, glory Harry Lewis
    Glory, glory Harry Lewis
    Glory, glory Harry Lewis
    His cloth goes shining on

    Oh Harry Lewis perished
    In the service of his Lord
    He was trampling through the warehouse
    Where the drapes of Roth are stored

    He had the finest funeral
    The union could afford
    And his cloth goes shining on

    Glory, glory Harry Lewis
    Glory, glory Harry Lewis
    Glory, glory Harry Lewis
    His cloth goes shining on

    Although a fire was raging
    Harry stood by his machine
    And when the firemen broke in
    They discovered him between

    A pile of roasted Dacron
    And some french fried gabardine
    His cloth goes shining on

    Glory, glory Harry Lewis
    Glory, glory Harry Lewis
    Glory, glory Harry Lewis
    His cloth goes shining on
    (MarlinsGirl)
