Le Chante de Joyeuse Oui Oui

Le Chante de Joyeuse Oui Oui
by Sir Arturus of Aranmore

Our 14th Century camp at Pennsic has a tradition started by our late friend Will McLean, of loudly serenading ladies who politely try to steal away to use the loo at Pennsic. I borrowed the idea and, being the pit bull of comedy, ran with it. I set a few verses down here for posterior…errr posterity…

The lady wasn’t one to cause a stir
She wasn’t one who like to make a fuss
But when she mildly rose to use the privvy
Our song was there to say “she’s one of us”

Chorus
One of Us
(she has to pee)
One of us!
(In French, oui oui!)
Here’s our salute to number one!
She’s in the loo!
(not doing number two)
The gentle lady knows
She’s one of us!

Twas late at night she tried to slip away.
To do her private business if you may
But all her clever stealth and misdirection
Only fueled our urge to sing her on her way!

Chorus
One of Us
(she has to pee)
One of us!
(In French, oui oui!)
Here’s our salute to number one!
She’s in the loo!
(not doing number two)
The gentle lady knows
She’s one of us!

At last the lady’s pride could take no more
She called upon her camp to silent be
But even though they really really listened
They had to set a final chorus free

Chorus
One of Us
(she has to pee)
One of us!
(In French, oui oui!)
Here’s our salute to number one!
She’s in the loo!
(not doing number two)
The gentle lady knows
She’s one of us!
