Christmas Fun #6

To the tune of HERE WE COME A'WASSAILING

by Authoress

HERE WE COME A'QUERYING

Here we come a'querying amongst the agents all,
Here we come a'wond'ring if we might get The Call.

Full requests come to you,
And to you, your query, too,
And God bless you, and send you an agent this year,
And God send you an agent this year.

We are not stupid neophytes who don't know what to do;
We've done a lot of research -- enough to see us through!

Full requests come to you,
And to you, your query, too,
And God bless you, and send you an agent this year,
And God send you an agent this year.

Bring us no rejections, and keep telling us we're great!
We'd like to see our books in print before we're eighty-eight...

Full requests come to you,
And to you, your query, too,
And God bless you, and send you an agent this year,
And God send you an agent this year.

God bless the agents one and all, and their assistants, too,
Except the ones whose non-response means "I'm rejecting you."

Full requests come to you,
And to you, your query, too,
And God bless you, and send you an agent this year,
And God send you an agent this year.
