Helper Art Festival, as the streets come alive. The Saliva Sisters - Salubria, Uvula and Plethora - return to Helper for an irreverent Sunday performance on the outdoor stage at the Arts and Music Festival. Among the songs was an original they wrote for Helper that was sung to the tune of the Hallelujah Chorus.

The Lyrics to the Song:

Helper, Helper

Got no smelter

Got miners

Refiners

Hallelujah!

Got great art

And a park

Grab a beer

Grab two beers

Hallelujah!

You pulled your mayor's name out of a hat

You're proud cause

He's better than

Other mayors

Who were voted in

You are rightly proud of

your swimming pool

It's well used

Don't know why

When everyone's

Over 50

Here's to your feral cats

[Raspberries/Meows]

They sure get in the way

Get the White Lady

To scare them away

And Workmen's Market

Forever and ever

You love baseball

Spend money on baseball

But your water lines

Are disgraceful, disgraceful

Water lines have been here

Forever and ever

E Clampus Vitus

A fraternity

Your chapter is big

Cause it's about absurdity

And mocking the pompous

Which you've done forever

Helper is unique

Got Italians and Greeks

Chinese

And Slavs

Renegades

Outlaws

Had bars and madams

Now artists

Just paint them

You're proud of your history

It's built on Industry

And hard work, acceptance

Community and decadence.

Close the brothels

It was awful

It's not the same

Bring them back again.

Hallelujah!
