The Lyrics

My first day off from the new job and what do I do...
I stole de mobile, but I did not get de papacy
I stole de mobile, but I did not get de papacy

All around in de Rome town
Dey're trying to track me down
Dey say dey have found me sins quirky
For a postal of de papacy
For a strife over liturgy

But I say

I stole de mobile, but I swear it was a sacrament
I stole de mobile, and dey say it's an Elysian offense

Papa John Paul he elated me
His wheels' my bestow
Every time I planned a sin
He said "Hold it before you blow"
He said "Hold it before you blow"

Servo, servo

I stole de mobile, but I swear it's for a pilgrimage
I stole de mobile, and I say it was no Cardinal offense

Free gas came my way one day
Dey're faithhearted in dis town
All of a sudden I hear bishops and priests
claiming my papa's crown
So I skipped, I skipped, I skipped dis down

And I say if I were guilty I would pay
I stole de mobile, but I did not get de papacy
I stole de mobile, but I did not get de papacy

Paternoster is not chatter to me
And what's mine to be must be
Every day de pedal's pressed to de floor
But one day de bottom will drop out
Yes, one day de bottom will drop out

But I drive

I drive de mobile, I'm adrift from Christianity
I drive de mobile, it's my hotrod of insanity

You've been dipping into his drugs cabinet, that's what YOU've been doing, Peter - very funny idea, but a crime not hard to solve, when the bottom does drop out - LOL - 555

555. It bottomed out because it was the same popemobile in Spaff.com " Vatican City ", complete with lowered suspension. :)

Twisted, irreverent, five-worthy, gave me an idea.

Stuart and Red Ant: Thanx!

Johnny: Is there anything that doesn't give you ideas? :-)
Phil Alexander - April 10, 2005 - Report this comment
Funny, K1chyd... made me think of Bill Hicks' comment: "A bulletproof popemobile? Now there's faith in action"
Michael Pacholek - April 10, 2005 - Report this comment
K1: Reminds me of a line in Robert DeNiro's movie "Midnight Run": "How far do you think we're gonna get in a stolen FBI car?" And there is ONE thing that doesn't give Johnny D ideas: Celibacy.

Phil: Thanx for de quote. Some quick googling proved that this Bill Hicks is one dude I'll have to check out for future homepage quotes too.

Michael: I'm not sure about that, if Johnny ever writes a parody about being on the run in a stolen (insert vehicle here) I'm sure that at least one of the verses would be about his agony over having to live in celebacy while under heavy police fire...

(SOTM) Sadly, I didn't get it. A rasta-man stole the Pope's armored car?

Thanx for all the votes so far. As for the "unclarity" of the subject it's totally fictional, as far as I know no rastafarian dude would ever be allowed to work in the Vatican, not even as a postal worker (and certainly not as a POSTAL worker). I got the idea from one of these MTVideos where some rapper drives around in a hot rod as if he's hell on wheels, and started to imagine what it would look like if he was driving the Popemobile instead, then that thought (d)evolved into what it what look like if the driver was a ganja-smoking rastafarian. (Rastafarianism is considered a religion among themselves, hence also another contrast to the "catholic aura" of the mobile).

SOTM: Excellent job K1! Not the pope's new Mobile home, was it? =)

(SOTM) Gives a whole new meaning to those old GM commercials where they said "It's not your father's Oldsmobile." This parody is totally original.

Peter CHYD, I'm a real fan of your bizarro sense of humor. This one made me giggle like a schoolgirl. The last two lines, particularly, are classic.

(SOTM) still a funny read, and OS choice, and idea - and what I said above

(SOTM) Can't believe I passed over this one first time out, Peter...I guess I was pooped out with the Pope...this is a fine, fine bit of nuttiness. 555

(SOTM) Late comment due to Firefox and lack of sleep (I guess).. Fantastic wording and great substitution to the OS.
