The Lyrics

He had to pick a name that was hard to rhyme... A Pope from Argentina? Explains why the Pope who was in the German Army during World War II quit: He needed a place to hide! (Just kidding... I hope!)
One two three!
(Horn blast!)
One two three!
(Horn blast!)

(instrumental opening)

Ow!
Ugh!
All right!
Ugh!

You got a land Argentina!
iCon las muchachas mas fina!
Capital, Buenos Aires!
You ain't gonna be sorry!
You got some fine-grilled steaks!
And those Rogel cakes!
Ain't gonna burn it!
Drink some fine fernet!

Ow!
Ugh!
Na! Na na na na!
Na na na na, na na na, na na na...
Na na na na!

Need somebody to help me to say it, one time!
Na! Na na na na!
Na na na na, na na na, na na na...
Na na na na!
Wow...

(instrumental break)

Ugh!
You know I feel all right?
Huh!
Won't have to cry for me, now.
Ugh!

Na! Na na na na!
Na na na na, na na na, na na na...
Na na na na!

Come on, y'all, let's say it one more time!

Na! Na na na na!
Na na na na, na na na, na na na...
Na na na na!

Wow...
Tango, the dance is

Jorge Bergoglio

National hero!
Clerical vaquero!

Or are Boca Juniors great?

Ow, do it!
Ow, do it!
Watch him do it!
Watch him do it!

Aw, help me!
Aw, help me!
Aw, help me!
Aw, help me!
(repeat 'til fade)

Benedict's gone Mikey so you can stop with the smear about him being in the German Army. He had to do something for the war effort once he reached a certain age or his family would have been sent to a concentration camp. As for what he did -- he was, for a very brief time, a helper to crews manning anti-aircraft guns, a post that he also deserted at the earliest opportunity. And seeing as how you libs claim that indiscriminate bombing of cities was an abominable war crime, I don't see how you can make a moral issue out of this -- unless, of course you have no moral standards to speak of

Bueno. I would have had the "na-na. . ." go "Ave Maria, e-Maria. . . ."

So Lennie, do you actually get paid to be an apologist for fascists, admitted and otherwise? Or do you do it simply for the enjoyment? Benedict is gone and good freakin' riddance. He is a criminal above and beyond anything he did in the Wehrmacht. I'm giving Francis a fair chance to be better. It won't take a lot of effort.
