The Lyrics

Pronounce "Cardinal(s)" with two syllables, as in "card-nal(s)", and pray for me because I'm probably going to spend some time in Purgatory for referring to the new pope as "Bennie".
Good bye, to Karol Wojtyla
The Cardinals have the duty
Now to choose who will succeed ya
Their ballots only numbered four, to get it right
They just announced "habemus papam"
Now the smoke is white

The College of Cardinals haven't said much yet
But the news is out, B-B-B-Bennie the Sixteenth
Decked out in red and they've given us
The former Cardinal Ratzinger
He's got the Vatican, a German man
You know the first one in nine centuries, yeah
B-B-B-Bennie the Sixteenth

He'll try reaching to the faithless
His job is daunting
But Bennie must be ageless
Seventy-eight, he's one of the oldest yet
And we'll join our parents going to church
Confess our sins and repent

The College of Cardinals haven't said much yet
But the news is out, B-B-B-Bennie the Sixteenth
Decked out in red and they've given us
The former Cardinal Ratzinger
He's got the Vatican, a German man
You know the first one in nine centuries, yeah
B-B-B-Bennie the Sixteenth

(piano solo)

The College of Cardinals haven't said much yet
But the news is out, B-B-B-Bennie the Sixteenth
Decked out in red and they've given us
The former Cardinal Ratzinger
He's got the Vatican, a German man
You know the first one in nine centuries, yeah
B-B-B-Bennie the Sixteenth

Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie the Sixteenth (repeat)
