The Lyrics

A day after the Pope died, I wrote it so that I can express what I felt at that time. The lyrics in the parenthesis indicate that the chorus is singing the countermelody (except for the end). Adieu, papam; farewell, pontiff.
And so our Pope's dead now,
God's will had been done,
Our papal champ worldwide,
For us all, everyone.

And so our Pope's deceased,
Pay your last respects,
Catholics and others,
His human subjects.

A very peaceful passing,
It's a sad time this year,
Don't say it's a bad one,
Without any cheer.

And so he died last night, (His life's over)
What a serene time, (Adieu, papam)
For tall and for small ones, (His life's over)
In this solemn time. (Now)

He passed away last night, (His life's over)
For black and for white, (Adieu, papam)
For Asians and Redskins, (His life's over)
For all those upright, (Now...)

A very peaceful passing,
It's a sad time this year,
Don't say it's a bad one,
Without any cheer.

And so our Pope's dead now, (Pain is over)
God's will had been done, (Please pray for him)
Our papal champ worldwide, (Pain is over)
For us all, everyone. (Now...)

And so our Pope's deceased, (Pain is over)
Pay your last respects, (Please pray for him)
Catholics and others, (Pain is over)
His human subjects. (Now...)

A very peaceful passing,
It's a sad time this year,
Don't say it's a bad one,
Without any cheer.

Suffering's over,
You're with God now,
Suffering's over,
Now.

(SFX of moaning, wailing, and crying outside St. Peter's Square)
