HAPPY ELIZA AND CONVERTED JANE
( A Duet)
 
div
 
Behold in us two quiet girls, we're very sanctified
Since twelve months from this very day, we've never sinned or lied
The path of goodness now we walk, and think it mighty grand
For we have joined the noble lot, the Hallelujah band.

Chorus: They call me Happy Eliza and me Converted Jane
We've been so wicked in our time, we'll never do so again
Oh will you come and join us? it's easily understood
We're hallelujah sisters and we're bound to do you good.


It's just a year ago today since we gave up all vice
Altho' we know it naughty was, we still think it was nice
The army came upon us and, though enemies we were
The Captain said, 'You'll both be saved if to our cause you swear.'

Chorus:

We know that very good we are, but strangely to relate
Although we're often deep in thought, we don't forget the plate
For money we can't do without, for nice things we all crave
Besides we all must make some bunce, if through the streets we rave.

Chorus:

So come my noble brethren come, and join our noble flock
It's not as bad as you may think, for we've got right good stock
Of buxom lasses young and fair, not like big chunks of wood
But all are truly beautiful, and sure to make you good.

Chorus: They call me Happy Eliza and me Converted Jane
We've been so wicked in our time, we'll never do so again
Oh will you come and join us? it's easily understood
We're hallelujah sisters and we're bound to do you good.
We're hallelujah sisters and we're bound to do you good.
