The Lyrics

he was a boy; He was a priest
Can I make it any more blasphemees?
He put the "rub" in "cherubim"
But he wouldn't frock around with Him
He told him that; it would be fun
Putting the "come" in "come-union"
He said "Let's go"; he said, "not me"
he wouldn't go near His rectory*

he was an altar boy
But not Father Walter's toy
He wasn't good enough right then
He's lookin' pretty good
But he thought the bishop would
Give him a better sack-rament

50 years pass; he sits at home
And he still has his server robe
he turns on TV; he feels like a dope
Father Walter is now the pope
A big pointy hat, and ninety years old
He's all dressed up in white and gold
he falls to his knees, and prays up to God
"How could I be such a clod?"

he was an altar boy
He said, "We all falter, boy--
How bout you falter some on this?"
Now He's a great big deal
Rides in the popemobile
Pope-urtunity he missed

Sorry boy but you missed out
He's close to death and He has gout
You could have been the nineteenth of
A hundred secrets covered up
Now you've lived a life so dull
By putting the "shun" in "confess-shun-al"

Goodbye to the altar boy
This song must now halt-er boy
I do not want to go to hell
I'll go to confession though
An hour before I go
Everything will be just swell

*stole the little "rectory" joke directly from Stephen Lynch, who is currently the funniestsongwriter I can think of (except for YOU, of course)

I bought a gerbil at the petting zoo/If Richard Gere can do it I can too... yeah he is funny. I like "special Fred" and Special Olympics.

Et tu Claude? (sigh) Many is the time I've read a sk8er boi parody and theorized that trained monkeys could probably write a better one. Thanks for proving me right.

Static: Heard his new one yet? It's live and even better than the first; I almost drove off the road when I heard "Grandfather" ("You old motherf**ker, just walk toward the go**amn light!") Melhi: You know you wanna do one. All the cool kids are doin' it. C'mon, Greg, take a puff...Billy: All the best musicians are in hell; you're gonna love it. Thanks everyone.

Wow, thanks Big Guy. And hey, nice job on that "Mohammaden Rhapsody". It was almost as good as your "Presbyterian Pie". But I think my favorite was "Latter Day Saints Are Great (For Spanking)"; you can just hear Elton John singing it. Peace out Gawd

Hey Monkeys: You gotta check out the hilarious Google ads on this parody. What the frock? And I thought I was cool that MSNBC noticed one of my songs until I saw the kind of celebrity fans you've got in your stands. Nice. My faves of His include "The Moonies 'R' Good Enough," "She Blinded Me with Christian Science," and, of course, "Hey Jew" (na na na Hanukkah na).

Yeah, congratulations on that, btw. Bout time though(, what are YOU doin' here...) Oh, and don't forget "My name is Buddha/I transcend the second floor..." - September 11, 2003 - Report this comment
And his Abba cover, "Hindu, Hindu, Hindu, Hindu, Hindu." Hey, and I just realized that your parody must be autobiographical - otherwise you wouldn't have planted the line "How could I be such a clod?"

That's gonna stick; thanks a lot. Yeah, He loves Abba: "So if you hear me, darling won't you fear me Meth-o-dist..." Okay, I'm really done now. (PS My wife loved your Kenny Rogers 'Roasters' comment--we ate there once; she wasn't impressed)

Awesome parody! Me and my girlfriend (Melissa Long) laughed our @$$es off when we read this parody. We just back from a school dance. Who is Claude Prez? Chat on any of my parodies. Plus, I am having a parody contest!

Purely unad-altar-ated genius! (You put the 'pun' in 'punishable'.) 5s from me for this epitome of parody.
