The Lyrics

If you love theater like me, you may not know that during preparations for my shows, I had morale problems. The casts and crews of all the shows I did solved those problems.Now if you love theater and are a Roman Catholic, if your morale was boosted outside of the Lenten season, you would say Alleluia. Otherwise, you would say Praise and Glory. Let me explain what I mean.
Oh, right before the show, I said that my morale was low
I came for the first show, went to change into costume and then
ALLELUIA! (Praise and glory!)
My morale went up! Yeah!
With balloons from the cast
And the crew!

ALLELUIA! (Praise and glory!)
My morale went up!
ALLELUIA! (Praise and glory!)
With a bunch of balloons!
ALLELUIA! (Praise and glory!)
All red and blue!
ALLELUIA! (Praise and glory!)
From the cast and crew!

ALLELUIA! LUIA!
(Praise and glory! Glory!)

Hey, those balloons I got won't be the only ones I'll get
I've got a lot of girls who will bring me more
Sing ALLELUIA! (Praise and glory!)
For more morale! Yeah!
I hope I do a good job in the show
In front of them!

ALLELUIA! (Praise and glory!)
My morale went up!
ALLELUIA! (Praise and glory!)
With a bunch of balloons!
ALLELUIA! (Praise and glory!)
All red and blue!
ALLELUIA! (Praise and glory!)
From a score of girls!

ALLELUIA! LUIA!
(Praise and glory! Glory!)

After the show ends, I have to take a picture
Then I'll change out of my costume, then I will mingle
So ALLELUIA! (Praise and glory!)
I thank you all! Yeah!
I hope that the next show is better and a success!

ALLELUIA! (Praise and glory!)
I thank you all!
ALLELUIA! (Praise and glory!)
For all the balloons!
ALLELUIA! (Praise and glory!)
All red and blue!
ALLELUIA! (Praise and glory!)
I guess I have a roomful!

ALLELUIA! LUIA!
(Praise and glory! Glory!)
If you sang Alleluia during a season outside of Lent, you are exempt from having to go to confession. Outherwise, you will have to go to confession. I hope that sin is venial and not mortal.

Thanks for writing this parody and sharing your experiences with us! That said, there are several things wrong with the parody. First of all, the experience you describe is obscure and most people wouldn't understand it. I get that in your experience, in the theater, your castmates or crew might cheer you up with balloons. Perhaps you could explain more about that in your introduction. Second, I know the Original Song, and I'm pretty sure that your pacing is significantly off. Some of the words and lines match, but many don't. It's as if, in some lines, you start off well, but peter off. Third, you don't follow the rhyme structure of the OS. You don't have to use the exact same rhymes as the OS, but you should rhyme where the song rhymed. For example, you could've rhymed "get" with "yet" and "zoom" with "balloons" (a near rhyme, but it would do). Matching "picture" with "mingle" isn't even trying. Keep sharpening your skills, paying attention to the OS's pacing and rhyme scheme. Hope this was helpful.

Hey, I checked your parody list, and you wrote this about 13 years ago! I stumbled upon this through a word search for parodies with "lent". Hopefully you have improved your pacing and your rhyme scheming over the years. I especially wanted to comment because one person gave you all 1's, which was harsh, and no one had left any comments.
