The Lyrics

I finally have a song that challenges Pope Benedict XVI's damnation of rock and roll. I thought it was catchy so I wrote it, and here it is! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
The Cardies don't dance and the Pope-a don't rock and roll
The Cardies don't dance and the Pope-a don't rock and roll
If you're gonna go to hell 'cause you listened to "Hells' Bells"
Where do you go to rock and roll?

The Card'nals say that you gotta live a moral life
You play "Runnin' with the Devil" and you're air guitarin', it's a sin
They say, "You sold your soul
'Cause you heard some rock 'n' roll, which is a sin"
I'll say it again

And it's all because
The Cardies don't dance and the Pope-a don't rock and roll
Yeah, the Cardies don't dance and the Pope-a don't rock and roll
When you plug in your SG and it's louder than a three
"You're sellin' your soul to rock and roll"

"You crank it to eleven
And your soul is null and void"
You heard a backwards message
In "Empty Spaces" by Pink Floyd
The music makes you move and it brings you to your knees
Then, "There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold"
"And she's buying a stairway --"
"Hey you! You're Excommunicated!"
Said Pope Benedict XVI

And it's all because
The Cardies don't dance and the Pope-a don't rock and roll
The Cardies don't dance and the Pope-a don't rock and roll
You hear "Stairway to Heaven," and the Pope calls you a heathen
Where do you go to rock and roll?
Where do you go to rock and roll?
Where do you go to rock and roll?

IOKTCSICV (I only know the chorus so I can't vote) I agree that Joseph Crapflinger has some messed up beliefs about music, but do you really consider "Stairway to Heaven" a rock song? C'mon.

Your Worst Nightmare, are you talking about Neil Sadaka's "Stairway to Heaven" or Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven"? Because Zeppelin's "Stairway" is by all means a rock song -- a classic rock epic clocking in at eight solid minutes! I don't appreciate your blasphemy of one of the greatest and most successful songs never to be released as a single. You can't diss "Stairway"; that's like calling The Beatles one-hit wonders!

I am not familiar with Sadaka, but yes, I am talking about Led Zeppelin. It sounds too soft to be a rock song. It sounds almost like a lullaby. What I do want to know is what on earth this means:

If there's a bustle in your headrow, don't be alarmed now It's just a spring clean for the May Queen

The Pope may condemn R&R but anyone who've seen "Airheads" knows that LEMMY (of Motörhead) is God so good old Benedict is stuck with the Joker.

Joey the Rat is stuck with Steve Miller?

Both versions of stairway stupid. And Beatles are best music in history.
