The Lyrics

More Catholic priests in the news today...
Matching MIDI HERE.
Vatican Shag!

Holy vestments chaffing you?
Hustle to your lucky pew
Supplicate like good ol' Job
Doff the robe, doff the robe, 'scepter' probe!

Altar boys know Hot-Cross Bun Day
Comes before—or on—Palm Sundae
Lay service is scary
When your seminary's
Doin' the Vatican Shag!

Go ahead, ignore the Holy See
Rapture's worth a skosh o' heresy
Should your burning bush get finicky
Bible thump yer 'holy trinity'
If you've spilt wine, blood or urine
Swiffer with the Shroud of Turin
Jews score chicks; —fate
Deemed that priests must master bait!

Your position's not the safest
If the public learns you're Papist
Next assignment's parish back
East Iraq, East Iraq, better pack!

When one's caught in their nave trystin'
Best stick to: "I'm Eucharistin' "
Then pray cops have bought' a
Hickey as 'stigmata'
—And overlook you're in drag!

How you gonna 'splain to dioceses
That your part 'arose'—'God's mysteries?'
'Cause at ten Hail Mar's per acolyte
You'll be on you knees a good fortnight
Take communion with Monsignor
Have him exorcise your wiener
Two for sex, ate? (x 3 on MIDI)
Time to glans-substantiate!

Virile Vicars, can't stop pornin'?
Tell the Pope you've turned Jack Mormon
Re-connect with all things flesh
Like Koresh, like Koresh—he's the best!

Better yet, Jeez, keep your pants on
Lest yer nicknamed 'Churchy Manson'
Stick to holly rollin'—
No more Harris polin'—
Don't go to bat again!
Keep yer robe flat—Amen!
Give up that Vatican Shag!

In the name of the Father, the Bun, and the Holy Roast... Nailed, TJ: this disgrace; blessedly astute is thy tune. Penance for your pen-ants: Fifteen Hail TJs!

Holy f*** - this is fantastic (if kind of hard to sing at the original speed), but way too many good lines to mention. Please say you'll enter this one in the SOTM.

Really appreciate that Phil... we're on the same wavelength re Lehr cake comestibles!
