The Lyrics

The Pope arrives on the Cuban shore
His entourage protects him well
There's an old man seated next to him
And that bearded old guy is Fidel..

Pope Benedict's asking, Cuba, can you change?
Economy's bad, many woes
Things are rough on the street, living here is no treat,
Maybe communists should repose..

La la la, di da da
La la, di di da da dum

Sing a free song, Mr. Havana man
Message good words, tonight
Show the Pope and the world true democracy
Mellow down, let the people live right

You made brother, Raul the President
But, he rules with your sharpened knife
You know there's a great need, all your people need freed
It's time to give them back their life

The Pope calls for change, change your politics
For years you've been cold as a stone
You have loosened slight rules for small business,
Cut more strings, let all freedoms be shown

Oh, la la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum

The Pope has shipped back your crocodile,
By now, It's arrived at the dock
Maybe his gift, so wily..can get you more smiley
And make your words more than a "Crock"

What it all boils down to is good politics
With the USA, soften your tone
Leave a good legacy with more sanctity
Don't just die as an old man, alone..

Sing a free song, Mr. Havana man
Message good words, tonight
Show the Pope and the world true democracy
Mellow down, let the people live right

There is sunshine more bright at this holy time
Feel the glow when he walks down the aisle
To bring back liberty, you, he's coming to see
Make his short blessed visit, all, worthwhile

Ring bells in Havana, hold a cath'lic carnival
Have the people all stand up and cheer
He has journeyed afar, in the world's eye, you are
Let his holiness turn you sincere..

Oh, la la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum

Sing a free song, Mr. Havana man
Message good words, tonight
Show the Pope and the world true democracy
Mellow down, let the people live right..

Mellow down, let the people live right
