I've looked! I swear I have! Can't find this anywhere, but I know I've heard it sung at a Getaway, so one of you guys out there, somewhere, knows this parody, a tribute to those church ladies who load up the tables with wonderful food.

Help!

There was a parody of it sung by the Welsh miners, which choirs still sing a snatch of from time to time.

Rapsquillion do this - p-mail me if you want and I'll send you a recording.

At least we used to, until I told the newest member of the band a very vulgar story involving a cardboard tube (roll) just before we performed it. She corpsed so badly she had to leave the stage, and none of us have been able to sing it since!

Oh, all right ..........

If you insist.

WHEN THE ROLLS ARE PASSED UP YONDER

New lyrics by Sonja W. Oates
Parody of "When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder" ( James M. Black, 1893)

When the crumpets of the Lord shall 'round the flock be passed once more,
In that coffee break, eternal, bright and fair;
In the same way that we gathered week by week to do God's chores,
When the rolls are passed up yonder, we'll be there.

When the rolls are passed up yonder,
When the rolls are passed up yonder,
When the rolls are passed up yonder,
When the rolls are passed up yonder we'll be there.

On that heav'nly breakfast morning when the yeast of life shall rise
For God's hungry reborn chillun' all to share;
For God's brown 'n' serves and bread to be prepared.
When His chosen ones shall gather to receive celestial pies,
And the rolls are passed up yonder, we'll be there.

When the rolls are passed up yonder,
When the rolls are passed up yonder,
When the rolls are passed up yonder,
And the rolls are passed up yonder, we'll be there.

We shall labor in God's kitchen from the dawn till setting sun,
Kitchen queens who've ever baked with love and care;
Then when coffee hour is over and God's main course has begun,
And the rolls are passed up yonder, we'll be there.

When the rolls are passed up yonder,
When the rolls are passed up yonder,
When the rolls are passed up yonder,
And the rolls are passed up yonder, we'll be there.

Hate to do this to you kind folks, but as I'm just making this up as I type, I think I've come up with some better lyrics.

Here's the latest (and maybe last -- Whoopee!) revision:

WHEN THE ROLLS ARE PASSED UP YONDER
Parody lyrics by Sonja W. Oates 2008
Parody of "When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder" (James M. Black, 1893)

When the crumpets of the Lord shall 'round the flock be passed once more,
And it's breakfast time in Heaven, bright and fair;
Just as week by week we labored at God's culinary chores,
When the rolls are passed up yonder, we'll be there.

When the rolls are passed up yonder,
When the rolls are passed up yonder,
When the rolls are passed up yonder,
When the rolls are passed up yonder we'll be there.

On that heav'nly breakfast morning when the yeast of life shall rise,
And God's crescent rolls and biscuits we prepare;
When the chosen ones shall gather to receive celestial pies,
And the rolls are passed up yonder, we'll be there.

When the rolls are passed up yonder,
When the rolls are passed up yonder,
When the rolls are passed up yonder,
And the rolls are passed up yonder, we'll be there.

We shall labor in God's kitchen from the dawn till setting sun,
Never resting on our reborn derrières;
When God's salad course is over and the entree has begun,
And the rolls are passed up yonder, we'll be there.

When the rolls are passed up yonder,
When the rolls are passed up yonder,
When the rolls are passed up yonder,
And the rolls are passed up yonder, we'll be there.

====

Of course, as we're doing parodies, I betcha some o' you fo'ks can come up with some even better lines.

Have at it!

I believe that Nan Goland of FSGW also has written a different parody on the same subject, to the same tune, with much the same viewpoint. She may also have sung it at a Getaway.   I'm pretty sure I've heard her sing it--not sure where.

Yes, I remember hearing Nan sing "When the Rolls are Served Up Yonder" in the Barn at a Getaway at Camp Ramblewood a few years back. I think in that same session, Roger sang "Mamma Fried".

Sorry, folks. Didn't mean to substitute my version (any of them) for Nan's.
I read Dani's post hastily and took the "(where are you, FSGW'ers?!)" to be a sort of "Song Challenge" (as in "Come on, folks, give it a go.").   

On reading it more carefully, I see Dani was asking us to find NAN's song.
(Unfortunately, Mudcat doesn't have a "delete" or "edit" function for us to undo something posted by mistake. My posts really should deleted, if there's someone who can do that.)

When they call the referendum, and I'm asked to make my mark.
With my little stub of pencil I'll be there.
When it's "d'you want rule by Brussels, or a leap into the dark?"
With my little stub of pencil I'll be there.
   I'll be there, I'll be there.
   With my little stub of pencil, I'll be there.
   When they call/hold the referendum

Just a starter.

Do you want to be like Norway, and be left out in the cold?
When they hold the referendum will you dare?
Will you vote for rising taxes, and to penalise the old?
With my little stub of pencil I'll be there.

Will you join the Brexit voters? stand with Nigel (nice but dim)
Did you like his latest poster? Don't you care?!
Or there's that nice David Cam'ron, would you buy a car from him?

So have you now decided? That vote's just a few hours hence.
There are lots of polling stations everywhere.
Have you come to a decision? No more sitting on the fence.
With our little stubs of pencil, we'll be there.

Came across this thread, and didn't find the lyrics that Carly (?) sang at the 2004 Getaway. Here they are:

WHEN THE ROLLS ARE SERVED UP YONDER

We have labored in the kitchen from the dawn to setting sun
Making food and drink for everyone to share.
When the dinner bell of heaven sounds and work on earth is done
Oh the ladies of the church will all be there.

CHORUS:

When the rolls are served up yonder (3X)
Oh, the ladies of the church will all be there.

We put on a fancy banquet when the bishop comes to call;
The aroma of our chicken fills the air.
But when dinner time is over still our work is not yet done:
There are dishes, pots and pans that need our care.

We make tons of mashed potatoes, we make gallons of sweet tea
And our apple dumplings are beyond compare.
We make casseroles and compotes, we make cookies, cakes and pies;
The ladies of the church are always there.

On that bright and cloudless morning in a banquet hall on high
When that heavenly host says, "Girls, pull up a chair",
There will be no dirty dishes and no supper to prepare
And the ladies of the church will all be there.

WHEN THE ROLLS ARE SERVED BACK YONDER
As recorded by David Petete on "He Looks So Normal" (2013)

[Tune: "When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder":]

They have labored in their kitchens from the dawn till setting sun,
All their fav'rite dishes to prepare.
Then they'll bring them Sunday morning all encased in Tupperware.
When the rolls are served back yonder, I'll be there.

CHORUS: When the rolls are served back yonder, (3x)
When the rolls are served back yonder, I'll be there.

I can smell the smell of pot-roast as I'm sitting in my pew.
What is said or sung I'm simply unaware.
If the Lord comes back, please tell him I will rapture when I'm through,
'Cause when the rolls are served back yonder, I'll be there. CHORUS

[Tune: "I'll Fly Away":]

Some sad mornin', biscuit in my hand,
I'll pass away—
More cholesterol than I could stand,
I'll pass away.

I'll pass away in the mornin'.
I'll pass away (in the mornin').
When I die, no one to blame but I,
I'll pass away.

[Tune: "When the Roll is Called Up Yonder":]

'Cause when the rolls are served back yonder I'll be there.
