The Lyrics

Jumping on the Pope Benedict bandwagon today (or is that Popemobile?) Anyway, here's my contribution...

And once I remembered this original song from Green Day... well, there was no way on this earth I could NOT do it... ;^)

Well what a turn up for the Good Book, it’s a blow
Time for a crisis, Benedict is gonna go
But who’s the best of the rest to get a shout?
A ‘Vatican’s Got Talent’ might just sort it out

Well some say that’s predictable, but rumours are still rife
The Pope did not have time for that life

He told them he’s not sharp and sprightly anymore
What did they expect? The poor guy’s eighty-four.
It’s not exactly a role you can just outgrow
God’s man on Earth, how much high’r can you go?

But now the man has quit, and – hell! He’s caused the Cath’lics strife
The Pope did not have time for that life

And riding in the Popemobile put his nerves on a knife
Poor Pope did not have time for that life

And he would get a big earful, if that guy had a wife
But Popes don’t have the time for that life.
