The Lyrics

The pontiff has been through a rough patch recently...but he's a fighter, so a little tribute is due...
He's pope-in', pope-in' pope-in',
Don't know how he's copin'
But he keeps on pope-in'.John Paul!
Through rain and wind and heathens
He won't be leavin'
While he can keep the righteous enthralled
Cardinals are guessin'
Just how long he'll be blessin'
‘Til heaven gives him the final call

Get ‘em in! Kneel ‘em down! Bless ‘em up! Get ‘em out!
Get ‘em in, bless ‘em upJohn Paul!
Genuflect! Eucharist! Pray ‘em big! Get ‘em out!
Pray ‘em big, bless ‘em upJohn Paul!! (Yah!!)

Prayin', prayin', prayin'
Though your body's swayin'
Won't stop you from prayin', JP!
No fags or booze or sinning
Has kept you in the inning
Living for an eternity
Your sight may be fading
But still pontiff-icating
Will we ever get John Paul III?

Get ‘em in! Kneel ‘em down! Bless ‘em up! Get ‘em out!
Get ‘em in, bless ‘em upJohn Paul!
Genuflect! Eucharist! Pray ‘em big! Get ‘em out!
Pray ‘em big, bless ‘em upJohn Paul!!
YAH!!

(pope-in', pope-in' pope-in', YAH!! pope-in', pope-in' pope-in', YEEHAH! pope-in', pope-in'.)

This is hilarious! Sure to be a hit at the 555th Vatican Council.

My son, you have sinned. But Iaughed my holy ass off. 5 Hail Marys, 5 Our Fathers, and 5 genuflections.

This is wonderful. I laughed till I stopped. Fives for you, best wishes for the pontiff.

Newfoghill generally refrains from reading parodies of living persons but in this case the category was debatable. A work of art! Who can forget Frankie Laine's raw-power voice and whip-crackin' style! Now THAT was something vital, alive, forward-moving, confident and confidence-inspiring. Thank you for a moment in the Church of Frankie Laine In Your Brain.

Dee Range is right; this made me come twice. Grrreat stuff, Overlord Kristof, though I think you should have had the courtesy to wait until JP2 was dead before making fun of him. Heh heh.
