Marvin K. Mooney Reprise

Marvin K. Mooney, Will You Please Come Now?

By Annette Gagliardi

With apologies to Dr. Seuss and Marvin K. Mooney will you Please go now!

The time is now.

To come somehow.

Just come.



I don’t care how.

You can come in a car,

a taxi or train.

You can come in the sun;

Or come in the rain.

Marvin K Mooney will

YOU please come now.

Your mothers and daughters

And sisters and aunts

Are all doing good deeds.

Come join them now,

with haste and with speed.

Please, come join them now!

You can come in a rush;

You can sing real LOUD

Or whisper a “hush”.

You can come to the Church,

Synagogue or Temple.

Come in a lurch, a jog, or a semple.

You can come to the

Abbey, the Chapel or Mosque.

Come worship here.

Come now, my dear.

Just come, come, come!

Please come today

Come! You may.

You may come, I say.

Marvin K. Mooney

I don’t care how.

Marvin K. Mooney

Will you please come NOW?

Marvin K. Mooney!

Please come, come, come.

Come on the run

Have some fun.

Come with the rising of the Sun.

Come morning, come noon.

Come late at night.

Our doors are open.

They’re open all right.

Get here now

Come right away,

You can be here a short while or

Come and stay!

Marvin K. Mooney don’t you feel

The time has come

to come with zeal!

Marvin, Marvin, Marvin,

You need to be here, we feel?

Marvin, Marvin, Marvin

Don’t you know;

the time is now.

I said




I meant. . .

The time is now.


Come somehow!

There was no blame,

So . . .

Marvin CAME!
