The Lyrics

An Italian priest wanted improve the dowdy image of nuns by running an online beauty contest, but canceled the contest after local religious authorities objected. The priest said the contest was to focus on inner beauty. Sing the first lyrics over the instrumental intro. OS: and
(Allelu, Allelu, Alleluia,
Sing Alleluia, Al-le-lu-ia!
Hosanna, hosanna, amen!)

(shake bells)

Hey, Miss Nunnery!
Hey, Miss Nunnery!

Sister Anne, Sister Anne,
You’ve a dimple
Beneath your wimple.
How sweet are you!
Shame you can’t powder
Your cute little nunnery nose!
Sister Anne, Sister Anne,
You’re a star!
Yes, you are!
You and your powderless nose.

Hey, Miss Nunnery!
Hey, Miss Nunnery!

Sister Joan, Sister Joan,
In your habit,
Warm as a rabbit
And friendly, too!
No streak of shadow
On those little nunnery eyes!
Sister Joan, Sister Joan,
You’re a saint!
Bad, you ain’t!
You and your shadowless eyes!

Hey, Miss Nunnery!
Hey, Miss Nunnery!

Mother Superior,
In your convent
You’re no bon vivant:
A leader true!
Don’t you go gloss up
Those pursed little nunnery lips!
Mother Superior,
You’re a gem
Just for Him!
You and your glossy-less lips! (Amen!)
Joan and her shadowless eyes! (Amen!)
Anne and her powderless…nose.

I used to see them all over town and half the kids in the neighbor hood went to parochial schools so I know all about nuns. Your parody does not describe the principal at St Francis. Bad by Michael Jackson would be more suitable.

Sir, this is grand, at least by Catlicker standards! Because Nuns in the past, were completely 'enclosed', this gave them a serene appearance. I do remember one young sister, Mary Veronese, who was very young, and when the wind blew on the playground, you could see that she was womanly . . .

CupCakes: I remember a few months ago seeing coverage of the Pope's visit on TV with the close-caption on. The CC, which must be computer-run, transcribed "Catholic Church" as "Cat Lick Church"!

I could be mistaken, but from all the news of the past several years, it seems like it's not the Cat the priests like to lick, it's the other thing, no?

This is nun too bad and I could get into the habit of reading and writing such parody - in fact I have written one or two of them about nuns. I like what you did with this one Melanie. I learned about the "Cat Lick" Church from nuns starting around the age of six. They used to scare me. Now I just remember them as looking like oversized penguins - the fridge type. I vow to bestow fives upon this write.

Sir Guy, I enjoy all parodies regarding things "Nunnery". Once a year (March or April) CowboyJim & I present the fresh-pressed Olive oil grown on the Campagna & the Dominican Convent to the good sisters (Dominican Nuns Infirmary). Although my experienced in Cat Likin' School were somewhat stern . . . the Domincanas were very kind to him as a toddler ; and they adore seeing him now, as their grown up cowboy neighbor.

(ABC) A rosy cruise to Italy (get it, Catholics?:)). Get thee to 555 points!

Not hilarious, but it was very cute.

(ABC5) Interesting idea here. Not particularly funny, but like Matthias said, this was cute.

It's unfortunate that you will likely have to miss the I round, make sure you ask for a 'sympathy' vote upon completion, I saw your reasoning, it always sux when you know ahead of time it's coming.

(ABC) Ha! I was waiting to read a cracker by you Melanie and this was it. You already had me with the idea, that was just screaming for a parody, and then you nailed it with your quirky lyrics - and great OS choice too - bravo - 555
