“I’m Vestry and I Know It”

Following a great vestry meeting tonight, I had a dose of “inspiration.” This is, of course, sung to the tune “I’m sexy and I know it” by LMFAO. If someone would do me the honor of turning this into a video to be played at the upcoming Episcopal General Convention, I’d appreciate it. Thanks.

“I’m Vestry and I Know It”

When I walk on by, parishioners be lookin’ like “Damn, that’s a nice tie.”
I process to the beat, walking the aisles down to my new seat.
Yeah, this is how I roll.
Power suit, shiny shoes, out of control.

Ask for the money, I’ll just say “no.”
In with the bishop, well I got the dough, yo!

God, look at that budget.
I crunch numbers.
God, look at that budget.
I triangulate.
God, look at that budget.
I vote no.

When I walk in the church, this is what I see: everybody stops and staring at me
I got passion in my heart and I ain’t afraid to show it.

I’m Vestry and I know it (2x).

When I’m at coffee hour, ushers just can’t fight them off.
When I’m at the altar, I’m lookin’ to rock my cassock – what?
This is how I roll, come on parishioners it’s time to go.
We headed to the sacristy, Lord don’t be nervous.
No offering plate and I still get serviced – watch!

God, look at that budget.
I crunch numbers.
God, look at that budget.
I triangulate.
God, look at that budget.
I vote no.

I’m Vestry and I know it (2x).

Niggle, niggle, niggle, niggle, niggle, yeah…..(3x).

I’M VESTRY AND I KNOW IT!

    As a member of a cathedral chapter, I love it. Thankfully, our local conspiratorial group is not like this! (I pray we’re not)…

    As a vestryman, I heartily approve!
