Trivia, Trivia, hallowed be thy name
Thy things be done,
Endless jobs come
At home as they are in the classroom.
Forgive us our meditation
As we forgive them who meditate around us.
Give us this day our daily bargains
And lead us not into contemplation
But deliver us from thinking
For thine is the chain store
The television programme
The bingo and the juke box
For ever and ever for men.
