Back in the '60s I knew a variant of the temperance variant:
There was a man in our town, I think his name was Lem
He prayed for Prohibition, but he voted R-U-M
He helped to put the poison in his neighbor's C-U-P
And then he laughed at us because we're S-A-V-E-D.
Oh G-L-O-R-Y we are S-A-V-E-D
H-A-P-P-Y to be F-R-double-E
Oh V-I-C-T-O-R-Y from the bonds of S-I-N
Glory glory halleluyah, tralala, amen.
