welcome to Pastor Flash’s hour of Reckoning,

with Organ Leroy at his organ again,
and the Fifty-Voice St. Louis Aquarium Choir.

I’m Decon E. L. Mouse

. But, Dear Friends in these days of modern time,
when you can’t tell the AC’s
from the DC’s,

well aren’t we all yearning for someone who can turn on a little stopping power?

Dear Friends,
I mean a smokey glass.

Don’t you think I mean a lightning rod
with which to chase these spooks away?

Don’t you know I mean our own Pastor Rod Flash!


He’s been up for a week,

but he’s coming down!

Firebroiled: b>I’m down!

Thank you, Dear Friends,

I’m down,
I’m grounded,
safe and sound,
trailing clouds of glory,

I’m down.
And I’m marching! Yes, Dear Friends,
I’m marching to dinner!

‘Cause Godamighty, I’m hungray!
Yes! I’m hungray!

Safe and sound and hungray!
