Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ The Boat by Stubby Kaye

Guys And Dolls is an interesting musical. The third and fourth leads, Frank Sinatra and Vivian Blaine are much stronger singers than first and second leads, Marlon Brando and Jean Simmons; yet Brando and Simmons are better actors which lends the whole piece more gravity than might be expected from such an unlikely story.
All four leads do not sing together, the two female leads don’t interact at all.
The closest thing to a closing number is led by a side-character Nicely-Nicely Johnson, played by Stubby Kaye.

This is a bit different to our church.
Not that I want to cause any waves.
