"Fun Loving Nun" as written by and Kevin Barnes....
She's not quite like the
Conventional sister no she's not
I've never seen her frown
Or hold her head down
I've never heard her say
"I'm bored" or "get away"

I tip top topple over for my fun loving nun
Cause she has so much fun has so much joy
And so much wonderful love for everyone

She's not like an ordinary person no she's not
She turns a lonely room into a happy place
Transforms a grumpy look into a smiling face

Some of us get covered up by the world
Become bitter from our loneliness
And forget our dreams
But she takes notice of the beauty everywhere
And wherever she finds herself
She feels peaceful there

I tip top topple over for my fun loving nun
Cause she has so much fun has so much joy
And so much wonderful love for everyone

    General Commenti really enjoy this one as you can see by my name. its my user name for everything these days. but this song i enjoy going around the house singing in a very bad cracky high pitched voice. it just brings joy, you know? its about how wonderfully fun this lady is and she brings joy to everyone, including me!

    General Commentahhhhhhh!! uplifting song indeed. I don't take the "nun" character literally, but instead look at it in a more symbolic almost metaphorical way. The nun could symbolize optimism, or a character in ones self that " has so much joy and so much wonderful love for everyone".

    General CommentLove this song, very whimsical but still meaningful. Barnes is the master of that art. Reminds me also of some 60's era Rolling Stones songs.
