Rosary Pantoum
 
Amen.
Hail Mary
itís too hot to pray
this hill is so steep.

Hail Mary
full of grace
this hill is so steep
being a woman
 
full of grace
I really believed
being a woman
the Lord is with me

I really believed
blessed art thou. Among women
the Lord is with thee,
but what about the rest of us?
 
Blessed art thou among womenó
just one out of many
but what about the rest of us?
Blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus!
 
Just one out of many
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
blessed is the loot of thy womb. Jesus,
what an act to follow!
 
Holy Mary. Mother of God.
Eve is our mother
what an act to follow.
Pray for us. Sinners,

Eve is our mother
now and at the our of our death.
Pray for us sinners?
We have nothing to repent
 
now. And at the hour of our death,
itís too hot to pray.
We have nothing to repent.
Amen.
