Oh Righteous Saints

Oh Righteous Saints From Every Shore

You Sit And Close Your Meeting Door

On Everyone Who Won’t Agree

To Your Godly Philosophy

‘Cause You’re The Ones Who God Is For


Oh? Did That Touch A Nerve Too Raw?

Yes You Who’ve Made Your Own New Law

Excluding Those Who Can Not Be

Oh Righteous saints


Are You The Right Ones? Are You Sure?

Can We Discuss This Anymore?

Or Are Those Eyes Too Blind To See

It Is Not You Who Hold The Key

Nor Should You Even Keep The Score

Oh Righteous Saints


The rondeau is a form of verse used in English language poetry. It makes use of refrains, repeated according to a certain stylized pattern. It was customarily regarded as a challenge to arrange for these refrains to contribute to the meaning of the poem in as succinct and poignant a manner as possible. The rondeau consists of thirteen lines of eight syllables, plus two refrains (which are half lines, each of four syllables), employing, altogether, only three rhymes. It has three stanzas and its rhyme scheme is as follows: (1) A A B B A (2) A A B with refrain: C (3) A A B B A with concluding refrain C. The refrain must be identical with the beginning of the first line.
