Lyrics: SHUT UP and SING!
Comments: Composer's note: Royce Parish (10/20/1924-7/10/2016) was the Bass of the "Knights of Harmony", a popular chapter quartet in the SWD during the 1950's and 1960's. In 1959, the Knights of Harmony were 21st place in the Intl contest, beating out the Suntones, the Nighthawks, and the Four Rascals that year. By 2014, Royce had been a member of the Big D Chorus in Dallas TX for many years, and when this tag's composer was being a bit "long-winded" on his first night as the new Musical Director of the Big D Chorus, Royce expressed his annoyance with Terry's unwanted music theory lecture with Royce's endearing signature phrase, "SHUT UP and SING!"
