The box in the upper right corner is a search engine for the Digital Tradition database. Always search there first. You can list title or key phrase, and chances are that you will find it. In this circumstance, I put the phrase [place in the choir] in it and found the lyrics immediately. One of the prime courtesy's on the 'Cat is that you do this before you ask for the lyrics. For now, you can click HERE for the lyrics to this song.

Great to have you here. Enjoy.

Hi Big Mick

You must have better luck than I have - as before I asked for help I TRIED THE SEARCH FACILITY - I tried the full title, and various combinations of the title and they came back as not found - I then posted a request. Having used Mudcat for along time I know the system or at least some of it.

Sorry for shouting - as you said to another Mudcat user recently - but your reply (One of the prime courtesy's on the 'Cat is that you do this before you ask for the lyrics) assumes I didn't and does not come across friendly at all even though its supposed to be helpful.

Having read your replys to others before it dosn't 'sound' like you at all.

However thanks for the link.

Well Mike, sorry you are offended, however, I do not check to see how long folks have been on the cat. As you will note in a posting from Joe Offer in the last few days, we get an awful lot of inquiries that we know folks have not done the search. Those of us who are regular visitors have found that we must use a very direct approach to get folks into the habit of using the search function.

As to your inability to find the lyrics, may I ask a question? Did you bracket the request? Putting the brackets on a request will cause the engine to look for specific phrases. I tried [God's creature's} and didn't get what I was after, but then put in [place in the choir] and had it. Process took about a minute.

Sorry you were offended, it was not my intent. But it was to help those less experienced visitors to understand the DT in a short and direct way, one of the first courtesy's they should learn.

Keep on truckin', my friend. Hey, that sounds like a great title for a song.

A modest suggestion: For an initial search, try just one word--choir, say. If you get too many hits, more words help limit the number of hits, but they increase the likelihood of encountering something like creatures/critters. [place in the choir] is a fine compromise for specificity.

It is important for us "regulars" to remember that what we think of as our prime courtesies aren't quite as self-evident to outsiders as we might think we are. Our search engines are pretty good, but there are tricks of the trade you pick up after a while. If you're one of those blasted blatteraps who spells plurals with apostrophes, you're not going to find songs with plurals in them - unless the song happened to have been posted by a similar blatterap.
I got a little grouchy yesterday when I saw the 30th lyrics desparately needed thread of the day (and they always spell "desperately" wrong). Maybe I should have been more patient.
This particular song is difficult to find, because there are many variations on the title. I think I even saw a CD that called it "The Porcupine Talks to Himself." And the thread had an appropriate title, so that's cool. Bad thread titles are the worst offense. There have been times when I've researched and found a song, only to find I couldn't remember which "lyrics requested" thread had asked for that particular song. Sometimes I wish the magic edit button Max gave me would allow me to change generic thread names and thread names with quotation marks. Actually, I have figured out a way, but it's a tedious process, so I don't do it often.

Bill Staines, who recorded it first on Folk-Legacy's CD-70 (Whistle of the Jay. The real title is "A Place in the Choir," although many people prefer to call it "All God's Critters." The Mudcat "shop" tells you that the recording is available only as a cassette. Don't believe 'em! It's been on CD for months. But I know Max and his elves have a hard time keeping up, so all is forgiven.

Subject: Lyr Add: A PLACE IN THE CHOIR (Bill Staines)
From: Joe Offer
Date: 05 Sep 99 - 03:04 AM

A search of our lyrics database for critters brings up A PLACE IN THE CHOIR and an interesting parody, PLACE IN THE FIRE, plus a road kill song for dessert....
-Joe Offer-
Here are the Digital Tradition lyrics. Any corrections?

A PLACE IN THE CHOIR

All God's critters got a place in the choir
Some sing low, some sing higher,
Some sing out loud on the telephone wire,
And some just clap their hands, or paws, or anything they got now

REPEAT

Listen to the bass, it's the one on the bottom
Where the bullfrog croaks and the hippopotamus
Moans and groans with a big t'do
And the old cow just goes moo.

The dogs and the cats they take up the middle
While the honeybee hums and the cricket fiddles,
The donkey brays and the pony neighs
And the old coyote howls.
CHORUS

Listen to the top where the little birds sing
On the melodies with the high notes ringing,
The hoot owl hollers over everything
And the jaybird disagrees.

Singin' in the night time, singing in the day,
The little duck quacks, then he's on his way.
The 'possum ain't got much to say
And the porcupine talks to himself.

CHORUS

It's a simple song of living sung everywhere
By the ox and the fox and the grizzly bear,
The grumpy alligator the hawk above,
The sly raccoon and the turtle dove.

CHORUS
REPEAT

By Bill Staines, copyright 1979
On "The Whistle of the Jay", FSI-70

...and that parody, also from the Digital Tradition:

PLACE IN THE FIRE
(Donald A. Duncan, Sara Freed)

(TUNE: A Place In The Choir By Bill Staines)

CHO: All God's critters got a place in the Fire
Some are roasters, some are Fryers
We cook 'em all as they require
And serve them up with jams or sauces, or anything we've got now...

Cows and pigs make many a meal
Steak and hamburger, liver and veal,
Ribs and bacon, chops and peel,
All the pig except the squeal.

Sheep and goats may take the crown;
The Darby ram fed two whole towns
Mutton helps the ale go down
Or was that the other way around? [spoken musinglyl

cho:

We gnaw up chickens piece by piece,
And gobble turkeys at every Feast.
Peking ducks and goose pate'
Fowl is fare eaten any old way!

Swimmin' in the rivers, swimmin' in the sea
Fish make dinners for you and me,
Fried or broiled or poached in sauce,
And Yuppies eat it raw! (spoken disparagingly. or as an epithet)

cho:

Things that crawl on the ocean Floor
Things that live along the shore
Crabs and lobsters, clams and more,
Shuck the shell and eat the core.

We eat'em in the nighttime, eat 'em in the day,
Gorge ourselves at work and play:
If it walks or crawls or swims or Flies,
We chuck it on the grill and give it a try.

cho:

Optional verses for strong stomachs aka "Vegetarian's Horror'·
or Carnivore's Delight"

We slice 'em and dice 'em and skewer them through
Sauce 'em and gloss 'em in savory brew
Slap them on the barbecue
And breathe that wonderful smell!

Pickled pigs-Feet, leg of Frog.
Eat a horse, or toast a dog,
Sweetmeats and tripe, offal in grog
Not to mention (Haggis and) Rocky Mountain oysters!"

Kill 'em with guns or clubs or knives
Whack 'em, stab 'em, boil them alive:
Hang 'em, bleed 'em into a trough,
Or twist their necks 'til their heads come off!

Skin 'em, slice them into parts,
Fry their liver, dice the heart.
When you've carved out all the choicest cuts,
Grind the rest to pack the guts.

Further (possibly useless) information. Bill Staines lives in Rollinsford, NH. Tommy Makem lives in neighboring Dover, NH. Tommy performed this very song at a free open-air concert in Dover last week, paying tribute to Bill in the process. The crowd, happy in its lawn chairs, sang along, applauded and, soon after, an unrepresentative slice thereof retired to nearby Biddy Mulligans to partake of strong drink.

As an irrelevant aside, it comes up first when you search for "hippopotamus". As Dick always says, look for the odd words or phrases. The down side of this strategy is that if you know that "hippopotamus" is in there, you might already know the whole song; but, at least with me, it is often the odd words that stick in my mind.

I'm inclined to agree with GUEST,Larry Odom.

In the liner notes for Whistle of the Jay, Bill Staines notes this is the first recording of this song, but does not claim authorship.

The following note, however, is on the lyrics page of the Preston/Beachwood site:

All God's Creatures

Words & Music by Michael Beachwood - BMI - C & P 1983

Michael Beachwood

This song was inspired by the trees being cut down and the intense whale hunting in the 70s. Michael saw field after field in the lower Santa Clara Valley being bulldozed and cover[ed] with asphalt. This song is very religious as well as environmental.

Hi Folks,

It's fairly obvious that we are talking about two different songs that just happen to use a similar, but not identical phrase. No lyrics are posted on the Preston/Beachwood website, but were there any I think it would be clear that it is a different song.

Note also that the copyright date for the Beachwood song is 1983, while the Staines Folk Legacy recording was issued in 1979. There is no environmental slant to Staines's lyrics. Also, it is not true that Staines did not claim authorship. See the last page of the booklet accompanying the Folk-Legacy recording.

Why would anyone think these were the same song?

John

John, they are, certainly, the same song & it was written by Bill Staines! I just happened across a movie, starring Tommy Makem as a Catholic priest. He leads the boys choir in singing the song. In the closing credits, it is attributed to Bill Staines. It’s a 1987 movie, entitled “A Time to Remember.”

Back on 05 Sept 99, Joe Offer posted lyrics, and asked whether there were any corrections. No one posted any corrections (at least, not in this thread), but there are a couple of typos there, in the last stanza. "Gear" should be "bear", and while Google tells me that "racoon" is an alternative spelling, I think "raccoon" is more standard.

[Also, on 10 Jan 99, Joe used the word, "blatterap". Is that really a word?]

Thanks, Gerry, corrections of "gear" and "racoon" made as suggested in my post above. Unfortunately, we have not yet been able to agree on an easy way to correct mistakes in the Digital Tradition.

"Blasted blatterap" was an epithet used often by Fr. Daniel York (ne, Jurkevich), my high school seminary Latin and Greek professor. He was infallible, by his own admission, so the term must be correct.
