Something About A Song

Theresa and I grew up with Catherine Anne in Whitney Pier. She had a great sense of humor and was a beautiful and intelligent young woman whose one purpose in life was to help others. She left a $50,000 a year position as a social worker for a $40 a week job working with mentally challenged adults. She stayed with her less than minimum wage job for approximately one year. In her search to find herself, Catherine Anne decided to become a nun, and not just a nun, but a Carmelite Nun. If you didn't know, the Carmelites are a cloistered order that pretty much have themselves locked away from the world in order that they might serve God in a manner only He would deserve - or something like that. Catherine Anne is now known by her Carmelite Nun name, Sister Mary Michael of the Precious Blood. We, her childhood friends, have not laid eyes upon her in over fifteen years and we miss her very much.

For those of you who feel that The Carmelite Nun Song is insulting to the order, well, that may be so. All I know is that Catherine Anne would have laughed at it and that's all that really matters. If you see her, say hello.

This song has been recorded as a demo and is available to serious music publishers and recording artists.

The Carmelite Nun Song

I wouldn't take a Carmelite Nun to a movie
cos' the movie'd really have to be boring
and I know my intentions would send me straight to hell
but her prayers would be reassuring
afterall, she's a Carmelite Nun

And I wouldn't get married to a Carmelite Nun
cos' I wouldn't get any sex
we could be up all night prayin' to the Lord
but I still wouldn't get any sex
not from a Carmelite Nun

A Carmelite Nun
she loves the Lord
she lives her life
with what she can afford
she don't get glittery
never runs wild
because she's a Carmelite Nun

And I wouldn't go drinkin' with a bunch of Carmelite Nuns
cos' no one would laugh at my jokes
they don't play poker an' they don't shoot darts
an' they wouldn't dream of takin' a toke
because they're Carmelite Nuns

A Carmelite Nun
she loves the Lord
she lives her life
with what she can afford
she don't get glittery
never runs wild
because she's a Carmelite Nun

she never has any fun
and God's got a place in the sun
for her, 'cos she's a Carmelite Nun
