Parody Song Title:

"Luther, Luther"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

The Archies' siren song keeps calling me.
Luther, Luther

Don't like that "Cathi" world,
And he's nailing up a few
On the door, Luther,
Down there in Wittenberg
That propound his non-pope views

It's post-Gutenberg; the printing presses can produce
(Printing presses can produce)
Multiple images he can use to spread the news
(He can use to spread the news)

Don't think he's funny
There in the Vati' world,
And they'd like to execute.

He's kicked off a swirl
That might unseat the Holy See
(That might unseat the Holy See)
Wants to shine some sunlight
On centuries of secrecy
(On centuries of secrecy)

So they implore Luther to stop running (Luther)
His big mouth about the shady (funny, funny)
Deals in the papal suite (heh, heh heh)
Purge little Luther, shall we? (Oh, yeah!)

Check out the DVD of "Monty Python's Meaning of Life" for a absolutely hilarious deleted scene about a horny Martin Luther.

Thanks, Guy, Agrimorfee. Maybe I'll add "neuter," God forbid!, to the list, Guy.
