The Lyrics

In a stunning move that hasn't been seen in nearly 600 years, Pope Benedict XVI is calling it quits... But before he goes, he'd like to get a little something off his chest.
Take this job and shove it I ain’t workin’ here no more
My vigor done left and took all the reason I was workin’ for
Ya, better not try and stand in my way
As I’m hobblin’’ out the door
Take this job and shove it, I ain’t workin’ here no more.

I’ve been workin’ in the Vatican for nearly eight long years
Preachin’ to the meek, the strong and the weak, dryin’ up sinners tears
And I’ve seen a lot of good folk here and I’ve heard them pray
But I’m fed up, right up to my ears, so this here is what I say…

Take this job and shove it, I ain’t workin’ here no more
My vigor done left and took all the reason I was workin’ for
Ya, better not try and stand in my way
As I’m hobblin’’ out the door
Take this job and shove it, I ain’t workin’ here no more.

The Cardinal is a crabby old man, the Bishop is a fool
He’s got a brand new miter that, he thinks is pretty cool
One of these days I’m gonna’ get up and I’m gonna’ chuck it all away
I can’t wait to see the face of the masses when I get the nerve to say…

Take this job and shove it, I ain’t workin’ here no more
My vigor done left and took all the reason I was workin’ for
Ya, better not try and stand in my way
As I’m hobblin’’ out the door
Take this job and shove it, I ain’t workin’ here no more.

Take this job and shove it.

Glad to see another pope story today.

Since the Pope (as every priest) has taken a vow of poverty, is it appropriate to give him a "Paycheck"? "Wholly" good! ;D
