Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Gaudete (from Steeleye Span)
As kids we used to sing:

Gawd 'elp us, Gawd 'eld us,
It's f***ing Christmas,
Shite presents and Crap TV,
Gawd 'elp us!

The regular words of Gaudete were savagely chanted by us third years (11-12), arms linked as we marched across the school field with the sole intent of terrorising first and second years.

Ah, the sweet delights of a folky childhood!
