Luther Variety Night

Last night was Luther’s Variety Show – it was such a fun time. A lot of money was raised for the darling sons of Tony Fair.

I got to sing my parody to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” If video becomes available, I’ll post it, but for now, here’s the lyrics.  I hope this is the start to a Weird Al worthy career!

Variety show is tonight

And we aren’t going outside in the dark

We see the moonlight

And love and reverence both enter our hearts

Nobody screams

This place is filled with really upright Lutherans

You start to squirm

As acts are laid out up upon the stage

What if they’re terrible?

Cause this is Luther!

Variety Night

And no one’s going to save you

From the acts up here tonight

This is Luther

Luther at night

You’re thankful for your life when you’re on Luther Campus tonight!

Our people sing songs

And perform playful acts to make you smile

You hope they’re all good

that you’re not tortured watching all the while

Listen to me

Don’t yawn and check your watch and pray I’m done soon!

Parody style

Should make you think and laugh and make you groan

Tickle your funny bone

Cause this is LUTHER.

Luther at night.

And no one ever told you

That the students get in fights

When they’re at Luther

But it’s just passion

About their God

That makes them want to tackle tricky

Subjects at Luther

The stage crew’s calling

The acts start to prep for their masquerade

There’s no escaping the chapel at this time.

This is variety night!

Now Luther students

They vary greatly in values and age

Some of us Lutheran

Others Methodist or UCC

But we’re all Christians

And called to work together for our triune God

We’re passionate

We won’t let those dissenters keep us down

Evangelize

Cause this is LUTHER!

Luther at night

And even though we’re Christians

We know how to party right

Now this is Luther

Luther at night

Make no mistake about it

We are Luther’s Finest, Luther’s finest, here tonight!

Cause this is LUTHER!

Luther at night

And even though we’re Christians

We know how to party right

Now this is Luther

Luther at night

Make no mistake about it

We are Luther’s Finest

Luther’s finest tonight.
