Welcome to our monastery
Please, have a chair

Good to see you monks so deep in prayer
Once the praying's finished
Your chores must be done
The main rule of a good monk's life is no fun!

We have to pray 8 times a day, 7 days a week
And copy all these manuscripts in writing so antique
I'll finish off this letter 'A' once I've ploughed our field
Milked the cows, mucked the sows, vegetables peeled

I'll be doing that and praying too

Very well gents - I'll bid you adieu...

Adveniat regnum tuum...
Okay brothers... I think he's gone..

Now bishop's not around
Throw off these religious gowns
Hunky, chunky, funky monks
Get down!

It's not all hymns and praying
It's not all work and no playing
So lets start misbehaving
And get wid da funk!...

We love to have a party
Eat food that is hearty
Lets get the boozing started
Drunk like a monk

Play that monky music, funk boy

Just wanted to check that during my absence
You're honouring your mealtime vow of silence

Although we didn't oughter
We like to hunt and slaughter
Don't need no bread and water
Just fun fun fun

Monastery is jumpin'
Party beat is thumpin'
It just lacks certain somethin'
A funky nun!

Get the party habit, girlfriend!

It's true that life is tough here
But you obey the rules that is clear
That's why we're a place of great repute
What's this? I see we have a new recruit
Welcome to our monastery, what's your name?

She- he!...can't talk and his name is...Wayne...

Aah... men!
