The Lyrics

This is based on Leon Russell's biggest hit. (Only?)
We're stuck with a tight Pope
You say "sex?" And he says "Nope"
Just more of the same from Italy
He's down on the rock/ roll
Only chanting keeps your soul
And that big hat on his head is what you see
For he heils, er, hails from Germany
Where they're lucky to be free
A litany of dogma
That's his calling

This one hasn't got much time
He ain't exactly prime
And maybe he's just too old for me
He's now Mr. Papal
Ohhh, lead the faithful
Ohh, the attitude
Fifteenth century

We're stuck with a tight Pope
Got the task giving people hope
Putting on the robes
But where are we?

Maybe he can still the noise
Made by priests who like the boys
Or maybe he's not the kind to see
He's up in the hot seat
Heads of State to greet
Ohh, but will he shun
All hypocrisy?

We're stuck with a tight Pope
Gotta think that he's no dope
Putting on the show, but not for free

Here's kudos for your Tight Pope Talker from the one you called The Tight Rope Walker.

He's also a right pope, as in wing.
