The Lyrics

A fitting tribute to the Pope... Elton John could've performed it for the Pope like he did for Lady Di
Verse 1:
Goodbye Papal Saint
Though I never knew you at all
You had the strength to hold your head
While wearing that big hat
You learned your craft in Poland
While Nazis whispered into your brain
You'd be chosen by Cardinals
And they made you change your name

Chorus:
And you never seemed to live your life
Like a candle in the wind
Always knowing who to pray to
When the rain set in
And I would have like to have know you
But I'm not Catholic
Your candle stayed lit long beyond
Replacement of your wick

Verse 2:
Studying was tough
You found religion during the Holocaust
Poland called you a Pop star
But you longed to save the lost
Even when you died
Oh the press still covered you
All the papers had to say
Was that "J.P." had no feeding tube

Chorus:
And you never seemed to live your life
Like a candle in the wind
Always knowing who to pray to
When the rain set in
And I would have like to have know you
But I'm not Catholic
Your candle stayed lit long beyond
Replacement of your wick

Verse 3:
Goodbye Papal Saint
From the Catholic in the 22nd row
Who sees you as something more than
Just the Pope
More than just our Karol Wojtyla

Chorus:
And you never seemed to live your life
Like a candle in the wind
Always knowing who to pray to
When the rain set in
And I would have like to have know you
But I'm not Catholic
Your candle stayed lit long beyond
Replacement of your wick
