The Lyrics

i made this parody at 4 in the morning-sorry!i'd like to say hello to matt and good luck to harry and amanda who are going to get married soon!
his sermon's echoing in my mind
i count the days til he is mine
can't tell the nuns 'cause they will cry
i look at him and deeply sigh.........

and i fight my way to front of church
so i don't get left in the lurch
i drop my bible on the floor
he bends down and shows me more

that's what i go to church for
although it is a real bore
boyfriends-i've had plenty
none like father mackenzie
that's what i go to church for, that's what i go to church for

so he may be 43
but that doesn't bother me
his girlfriend's working out of town
i find a reason to go round
and i climbed a tree outside his home
to make sure that he was alone
he's ironing in his underwear
i can't help but stop and stare


he's his bags,including his trunks
he's going on holiday with the monks
we drive past church to say goodbye
the bishop can't believe his eyes

that's what i go to church for
although it is a real bore
boyfriends-i've had plenty
none like father mackenzie
that;s what i go to church for
that's what i go to church for

Sorry, typo. I meant is this Eleanor Rigby's SONG? Because you talk about Father Mackenzie. I thought it was Eleanor singing.
