Aaron Priven's silly spiritual lyrics

At U.C. Santa Cruz there are internal forums for discussion of various topics. This is a quote from one ("Free-Stuff," where people offer items not worth selling).

It's probably filled with so many in-jokes that nobody will understand it, but I don't expect anybody to read this Web page anyway.

I still like the words I wrote to "Very Last Day."

Subject: not only am I the UberAaron,

I'm also free, which makes this totally appropriate to this node.

The Aaron is dead!  Long live the Aaron!

Aaron Priven bound in jail.
      _All_night_long_.
For tellin that long tall tale.
      _All night long_.
For tellin' that, long tall tale.
      _All night long_.
Aaron, deliver, for me-ee.

Oh sinner man, where ya gonna run to?
Oh sinner man, where ya gonna run to?
Oh sinner man, where ya gonna run to?
All on that day.

Run to the dorm, dorm won't ya hide me?
Run to the dorm, dorm won't ya hide me?
Run to the dorm, dorm won't ya hide me?
All on that day.

Run to BC, Van won't ya hide me?
Run to BC, Van won't ya hide me?
Run to BC, Van won't ya hide me?
All on that day.

Run to Unix B, B won't ya hide me?
Run to Unix B, B won't ya hide me?
Run to Unix B, B won't ya hide me?
All on that day.

Aaron said, Sinner man, dorm'll be evicted;
Aaron said, Sinner man, BC'll be freezing;
Aaron said, Sinner man, B will be off-line;
All on that day.

Oh I will walk with, that Aaron P.
Down by the riverside,
Down by the riverside,
Down by the riverside.
Oh I will walk with, that Aaron P.
Down by the riverside,
And study Nat Sci no more.

Oh I will study Nat Sci no more.
I will study Nat Sci no more.
Study Nat Sci no more...

-----------

I have more spirituals and lots and lots more folk songs around here
somewhere...

Subject: Go tell it over the tee-vee

Over the air, and in the living rooms;
Go, tell it on the tee-vee
That Aaron P. is come

Down in that lonely lobby,
The Aaron watches alone;
He waits until the Star-Trek
Viewers come to atone. (Hallelujah!)

Go tell it on the tee-vee
Over the air, and in the living rooms;
Go tell it on the tee-vee
That Aaron P. is come.

Everybody gonna pray on the very last day
When they hear that Aaron spelled with a double A
Everybody gonna pray to the Aaron on Spelling Bee Day
Well you can sing about the Noah Webster
And you can talk about the OED
But if they spell my name with double R's they'll lose the spelling bee...
I don't ask much, okay:
Just spell with a double A
Get ready, spellers, for that day:
Everybody's gonna pray...

Who's that yonder dressed in puce,
(Let my people go!)
Must be the people that Aaron duped...
(Let my people go...)

This train is bound for Aaron, this train
This train is bound for Aaron, this train
This train is bound for Aaron
It's gonna bring stuff to him and it's gonna turn round again
This train is bound for Aaron, this train

All my trials, Aaron, soon be over.

I had a little Aaron he said to me
To waste some time, use Unix B....
All my trials, Aaron, soon be over.

If religion were a thing that money could buy
Oral Roberts would be a real rich guy
All my trials, Aaron, soon be over.

Too late my Aaron, too late, but never mind
All my trials, Aaron, soon be over.

There is a tree in Paradise
The Regents cut it, for college nine
All my trials, Aaron, soon be over.

It was poor little Aaron, (Yes, yes!)
He went to Financial Aid, (Yes, yes!)
Didn't have no grants, (Yes, yes!)
Wasn't that a pity and a shame, O Lord, wasn't that a pity and a shame.

It was poor little Aaron, (Yes, yes!)
Didn't have no work-study, (Yes, yes!)
Had Perkins loans instead, (Yes, yes!)
Oh wasn't that a pity and a shame, O Lord, wasn't that a pity and a shame.

When College Eight
Its name comes in
When College Eight, its name comes in
We all know, it really should be Priven
When College Eight its name comes in.

I got a home in that rock, don't you see.
I got a home in that rock, don't you see.
I got a home in that rock, Aaron says that folk is hot.
I got a home in that folk, don't you see.

Aaron row the boat ashore (Hallelujah!)
Aaron row the boat ashore (Hallelujah!)

Aaron's engine done conked out (Hallelujah!)
Aaron's engine done conked out (Hallelujah!)

Aaron gets carsick and seasick (Hallelujah!)
Aaron gets carsick and seasick (Hallelujah!)

What the hell is Aaron doing here (Hallelujah!)
What the hell is Aaron doing here (Hallelujah!)

I know this joke is getting really old for y'all, especially since
you probably don't know the songs these are based on, but *I'm* 
having a blast...
