This is a quote from the book, "Presidential Praise," about Theodore Roosevelt's love for singing hymns.

Since the president enjoyed singing so boisterously in church during his era, this joke circulated:
"On T.R.'s first day in heaven, he told Saint Peter that the choir was quite weak and should be reorganized immediately. Saint Peter quickly assigned the task to T.R.
'Well,' said the former president. 'I need thousand sopranos, ten thousand altos, and ten thousand tenors.'
'But what about the basses?' inquired Saint Peter.
'Oh,' said T.R., 'I'll sing the bass.'"

Okay, so maybe it isn't a theologically sound joke....but, I thought it was pretty funny. :-) All you basses out there beware; Theodore Roosevelt just might give you a run for your money.
