Sister Josephine

  • (Jake Thackray)

    Oh Sister Josephine
    What do all these policemen mean
    By coming to the convent in their grim limousines
    After Sister Josephine
    While you, Sister Josephine
    You sit with your boots up on the altar screen
    You smoke one last cigar
    What a funny nun you are

    The policemen say that Josephine's a burglar in disguise
    Big fat Norman, fifteen years on the run
    The sisters can't believe it, no that can't be Josephine
    Just think of all her tenderness towards the younger nuns

    Oh Sister Josephine
    They're searching the chapel where you've been seen
    The nooks and the crannies of the nuns' canteen
    After Sister Josephine
    While you, Sister Josephine
    Take a farewell swig of Benedictine
    Before your 'Au revoir'
    A right funny nun you are

    Admittedly her hands are big and hairy
    And emblazoned with a curious tattoo
    Admittedly her voice is on the deep side
    She seems to shave more often than the other sisters do

    Oh Sister Josephine
    Founder of the convent sumo team
    They're leafing through your volumes of those strange magazines
    After Sister Josephine
    While you, Sister Josephine
    Give a farewell whiff of Benzedrine
    To the convent budgerigar
    A bloody funny nun you are

    No more will her snores echo through chapel during prayers
    Nor her lustful moaning stir the stilly nights
    No more empty bottles of altar wine come clanking from her cell
    No longer will the cloister toilet seat stand upright . . .

    Oh Sister Josephine
    Slipping through their fingers like margerine
    Dressed only in your Y-fronts and a rosary
    What a funny nun you seem to be

    (as sung by The McCalmans)
