"JPBC Blues"

Note: Ben Parziale "sang" this song about his JPBC internship at the Valentine's Banquet (to the tune Folsom Prison Blues).
I hear the Mr. Jeff a comin'
He’s rolling round the bend
And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when,
I'm stuck in JPBC, and time keeps draggin' on
And that’s because I’ve been here since the break of dawn
When I was just a baby my mama told me Son,
Always be a good boy, don't ever be an intern.
But I thought I’d like to do it, just to give it a try.
When I hear his voice a’calling, I hang my head and cry.
Well I know that Mr. Jeff likes that ole Richard Baxter
He’s probably drinkin’ coffee and readin’ Reformed Pastor.
Well I know I had it coming, when I read Homemaking.
Because I’m a pastoral intern, And that's what’s torturing...
Well if they freed me from JPBC,
And if that Rainbow House was mine
I bet I'd move it on a little farther down the line
Far from Jeffrey Riddle, that's where I want to stay
And I'd let that lonesome white van drive all my blues away.....
