Saluting The Musical Chairs
lyrics 2008 by Dr. H. Paul Shuch
sung to the tune of "America the Beautiful,"
derived from the hymn "Materna" (1882) by Samuel A. Ward

Oh musical, though furniture,
The Chairs are queens of filk,
Each one a dish, like Leslie Fish
And others of her ilk.
When Stevenson and Melnick sing
In perfect harmony,
Lucinda can't resist a chant
From she to signing she.

Background: Linda Melnick, of the filk group Musical Chairs, is a professional sign language interpreter, and in concert frequently signs the lyrics of the trio's songs.
