Past two o’clock (a modern madrigal for men’s voices – ATBarB)


This is a parody of the old Christmas Carol “Past 3 o’clock” but in this version the choir is singing and annoying the neighbour at 2 in the morning.
Versions for lower men’s voices are also available (in C and in D)

Here are the lyrics:

Past two o’clock
all singing and dancing
past two o’clock
the party’s in full flow

pity the neighbour
do him a favour
give him some earplugs
for good behaviour

sing to him gentle
or he’ll go mental
he’s started shouting
words non-parental

his ears are ringing
stones he’ll start flinging
he doesn’t like the
songs that we’re singing

He’s pulled the fuse now
We’ll have to choose now
whether to stop and
admit that we lose now

despite that fellah
we’re feelin’ mellah
since we’re unplugged
we’ll sing a cappella
