"The Rich Man and the Poor Man" (sheet music)


There was a rich man, and he lived in Jerusalem,

Glory hallelujah, hirojerum.

He wore a silk hat, and his coat was very sprucium,

Glory hallelujah, hirojerum.

Hirojerum, hirojerum,

Skinna malinka toolium, skinna malinka toolium,

Glory hallelujah, hirojerum.

 

One day to his door there came a human wreckium,

Glory hallelujah, hirojerum.

He wore a bowler hat, and the brim was round his neckium,

Glory hallelujah, hirojerum.

Hirojerum, hirojerum,

Skinna malinka toolium, skinna malinka toolium,

Glory hallelujah, hirojerum.

 

The poor man begged for a piece of bread and cheesium,

Glory hallelujah, hirojerum.

The rich man said he’d call for a policium,

Glory hallelujah, hirojerum.

Hirojerum, hirojerum,

Skinna malinka toolium, skinna malinka toolium,

Glory hallelujah, hirojerum.

 

The poor man died and his soul went to Heavium,

Glory hallelujah, hirojerum.

He danced with the angles till quarter past elevium,

Glory hallelujah, hirojerum.

Hirojerum, hirojerum,

Skinna malinka toolium, skinna malinka toolium,

Glory hallelujah, hirojerum.

 

The rich man died, but he didn’t fare so wellium,

Glory hallelujah, hirojerum.

He couldn’t go to Heaven, so he has to go to Hellium,

Glory hallelujah, hirojerum.

Hirojerum, hirojerum,

Skinna malinka toolium, skinna malinka toolium,

Glory hallelujah, hirojerum.

 

The moral of this story is: “Riches are no jokium.”

Glory hallelujah, hirojerum.

We’ll all go to Heaven ‘cause we’re all stony brokium,

Glory hallelujah, hirojerum.

Hirojerum, hirojerum,

Skinna malinka toolium, skinna malinka toolium,

Glory hallelujah, hirojerum.
