The Apostle Song

Someone sent me a link to a YouTube video for something called “The Apostle Song”. It is a little song that helps you remember our current 15 apostles (including the First Presidency). The tune sounds like the theme song from The Beverly Hillbillies (or so my wife says).

Strangely enough, that very day I also received a Google Alert (for Thomas Monson) that had a link to a site where there was a video of a small girl singing the song (it’s quite cute).

Here are the words:

Thomas S. Monson is the Prophet you know
Henry B. Eyring is the next below
Dieter F. Uchtdorf is the third you see
And that makes up the first presidency

Boyd K. Packer taught seminary
L. Tom Perry is 6 foot 3
Russell M. Nelson operated on folds
A Supreme Court justice was Dallin H. Oaks

M. Russell Ballard sold used cars
Joseph B. Wirthlin was a football star
Richard G. Scott is from Idaho
Robert D. Hales plays the piano

Jeffrey R. Holland was a Yale guy
David A. Bednar changed Rick’s to the Y
Quentin L. Cook is from Cache Valley
D. Todd Christofferson’s an attorney
