Does anybody remember that song, can't remember the title, maybe it was something like "Praise Jah" or "Praise Jah With Me?"
There was a line in that song, something about calling to Jehovah for help in times of distress.
The line, as I recall, was this:
"Our calls for succor, he quickly will hear"
"Succor" being a rather obsolete word for "assistance in times of distress". Probably Karl Klein (mentioned earlier in this thread) was quite proud of himself for finding a two-syllable word that fit the meter.
So, in English, "succor" when spoken is indistinguishable from "sucker", which means "one who sucks" and "sucks" is one of those almost-but-not-quite dirty words that "good" JWs don't use.
And of course in modern times, if you hear the word pronounced [suk-er], 999 times out of a thousand someone will think "sucker" not "succor".
The horror! What is a good JW to do? Can't be singing about "suckers" to Jehovah!
So, when that line was reached in the song, it sounded something like this:
80 decibels: "Our calls for...."
40 decibels: "Su - mumblety mumble - er"
80 decibels: "...he quickly will hear"
It was a source of never-ending amusement to my teenaged brain. Hey, when you're stuck in the Kingdom Hall for 2 + hours and would rather be watching "Happy Days" or "Welcome Back Kotter", you look for enjoyment wherever you can find it.
