Given It All Of My Best

I’ve gone and given it all of my best
And no this ain’t my time to go rest
‘Cause you went set me loss on a quest
A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
As a result I now have a spiritual leaning
For depth in our Sunday morning worship services see
‘Cause I’ve already had religious introductions given to me
‘Bought things from Judaism to human sexuality in RE
So I wanna take it to the next level
And this might get me perceived as a rebel
But I don’t think I’m alone on this here
‘Cause fellow raised UUs that I’ve conversed do appear
To desire more ritual in worship like I’d here
As you may have guessed I’m saying to watch
What could be if we UUs turned up a notch
Even just one the depth of our religious thought
We’d have more I think staying here from young to old age

I Am Unlike The Majority

Don’t wanna be untrue
To myself
To who I am

Who I am is
Unlike majority
I am unlike majority

‘Cause sexuality education I
At 14
Did get at church

Who I am is
Unlike majority
I am unlike majority

‘Cause I was taught
Nakedness doesn’t
Hafta equal sexual behaviour

Don’t wanna be untrue
To myself
To who I am

Who I am is
Unlike majority
I am unlike majority

‘Cause I was taught
Being tender
It’s ok for males

Who I am is
Unlike majority
I am unlike majority

‘Cause I was taught
Being strong
It’s ok for females

Don’t wanna be untrue
To myself
To who I am

Who I am is
Unlike majority
I am unlike majority

‘Cause I was taught
Not to
Blindly just believe things

Who I am is
Unlike majority
I am unlike majority

‘Cause I was taught
To search
For my own truths

Don’t wanna be untrue
To myself
To who I am

Who I am is
Unlike majority
I am unlike majority

I am unlike the majority

Raised UU

We were taught to love learning
And to always be questioning constructively
Just so one day hopefully we’d be able to stand tall
Tall knowing why we’ve come to believe what we believe
That was back in Sunday school
That was back in Sunday school
Wen we were still kids growing up in Unitarian Universalist
community

We were kids growing up in Unitarian Universalist community
Well before we got sent out into the world
And fond that there is nothing quite like a raised UU

And a raised UU is a real emotional and hugging loving creature

We were taught to love ourselves
And be of others always excepting
Just so one day hopefully we’d be able to stand tall
Knowing that we’ve come to be some really caring people
That was back in Sunday school
That was back in Sunday school
Wen we were still kids growing up in Unitarian Universalist
community

We were kids growing up in Unitarian Universalist community
Well before we got sent out into the world
And fond that there is nothing quite like a raised UU

Some of us went way with
Good foundations into the wider world
Some of us we’re still here ‘cause Unitarian Universalist
community it
It’s still sustains and enriches us and that’s so cool

We were kids growing up in Unitarian Universalist community
Well before we got sent out into the world
And fond that there is nothing quite like a raised UU

In Community

We came to be
You and me
In community

And we’ll meat
With hugs wen we greet
For the first and every time
And then we’ll sing maybe in rime
All ‘bout our fun
We had on the run
It was filed with so much sweet lunacy

The run towards the magic pool
Which would give us the much-needed school
Lesions in who to be utterly knocked of our feet
From our heads to the ground do to the heat
Of sweet expression all ‘round us

Don’t have no tears
Or even fears
‘Cause safe we did play ‘round
Yes we did it in churches on many a big bedding mound
And too in they’re many a sanctuary hall
It was for the pursuit of spirituality that did call
Yes we came in vanes, see nun came by bus

We came to be
You and me
In community

And we’ll meat
With hugs wen we greet
For the first and every time
And then we’ll sing maybe in rime
All ‘bout our fun
We had on the run
It was filed with so much sweet lunacy

The run towards the magic pool
Which would give us the much-needed school
Lesions in how to be utterly knocked of our feet
From our heads to the ground do to the heat
Of sweet expression all ‘round us

Don’t have no tears
Or even fears
‘Cause safe we did play ‘round
Yes we did it in churches on their many a campus ground
And in they’re many a classroom
It was for pursuit of workshops that we did swoon
Yes we came in vanes, see nun came by bus

We came to be
You and me
In community

It’s Not Foolish To Want A Place Here

It’s not foolish to want to stay
It’s not foolish to want a place here
Yes I need a place here to use what I learnt in my teen years
It’s not foolish to want to stay here
Yes it was here back wen I was a youth that I learnt so much
Yes it began in the downstairs corner room
And it ended in the upstairs room you call the apartment
But did it have to end?
Yes I know it had to end for me
But surely what it taught me couldn’t it have been incorporated into something suitable for me and my fellow young adults
Is it not true that you teach us to find out what we believe in
And is it not true that you teach us to live what we believe
So if we find out what we believe is true for us, then is it not, not foolish to think we can live it out here
Can’t we live it out here under the big steeple
It’s not foolish to want to stay
It’s not foolish to want a place here

Because challenges they must come our way fore some great reason
And because of this I believe in you God

And if this is not so
And if it was all an accident or just some chance reaction
Then I can’t comprehend this
Well at lest for write now

This is what I must believe to keep myself carrying on
Well at lest for write now
I will praise
Oh God you most holly

And if my childhood self could know I felt this way this day
Now
Now I know they would scream

They would scream because they thought that science would be able to give them the assures
Yes they were certain that though science they could find the truth
The truth about existence
And all the facts about our coming to be

This chaos we call the web of all existence
Yeah the one which we’re apart of
I need to believe
I got to believe
It was created
Because challenges they must come our way fore some great reason
And because of this I believe in you God
