SIN AND REDEMPTION

(to the tune of "He's Got the Whole World In His Hands")

The Palindromes taught us, "Dennis sinned"
Taught all the sisters "Dennis, Madam, sinned"
Taught us "Dennis lived as a devil sinned"
We're taught to know that "Dennis sinned". 

You've got to know that "Dennis and Edna sinned"
Yes, "Dennis, Nell, Edna and Ellen sinned"
"Dennis, Nell, Edna, Hannah and Ellen sinned"
You know that "Dennis and Edna sinned".

We're taught that "Dennis, Nora, Al, Aaron sinned"
"Dennis, Nell, Edna, Gert, Reg and Ellen sinned"
At "Dennis's Inn: Edna and Ennis sinned"
"Dennis' tennis sin-net sinned".

"Dennis, Nat's DNA and Stan? Sin, Ned"
"Dennis's sensuousness? Sin, Ned"
"Bed Noel, Otto, Leon, Deb"
"Dennis
 lived at a devil's inn, Ed".

Dennis "Evil did deliver, reviled did live"
But if everybody here would just forgive,
It could be "drawn onward" on the wind - 
"Dennis never even sinned".
