The Lyrics

In honor of Pope Benedict XVI's recent visit to Washington, D.C. and New York City.
People, people, you know it’s true;
I’m the Pope; I’m here for you!
I flew to the U.S.A.
So you could listen to the words I say.
See my skullcap; see my stole.
Dig my dress of white and gold,
And then after I can do my thing,
Kiss my ring.

Papal Man, Papal Man.

Put me into the Popemobile
To deflect the lead and steel.
Anything they shoot my way,
It won’t get me, so I hope and pray!
All your throngs fill me with joy,
Singing to this Birthday Boy.
It’s the greatest thrill I’ll get this spring!
Kiss my ring.

Allelu, Allelu, Alleluia! (Allelu, Allelu, Alleluia!)
Allelu, Allelu, Alleluia! (Allelu, Allelu, Alleluia!)
Allelu, Allelu, Alleluia! (Allelu, Allelu, Alleluia!)
Allelu, Allelu, Alleluia! (Allelu, Allelu, Alleluia!)

Papal Man, Papal Man.

People, people, you know it’s true.
I’m the pope, I’m here for you.
Need more priests in your employ—
Not the kind that mess with little boys!
God’s the one I love the most:
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
So I’ll listen to you pray and sing.
Kiss my ring.

Allelu, Allelu, Alleluia! (Allelu, Allelu, Alleluia!)
Allelu, Allelu, Alleluia! (Allelu, Allelu, Alleluia!)
Allelu, Allelu, Alleluia! (Allelu, Allelu, Alleluia!)
Allelu, Allelu, Alleluia! (Allelu, Allelu, Alleluia!)

Papal Man, Papal Man, Papal Man,
The Papal Man!
Papal Man, Papal Man,
The Papal Man!
Papal Man, Papal Man, Papal Man,
The Papal Man…!

I can't vote because I don't know the OS, but this was a fun read aloud and I have liked some of your other work.

Very good write about the Holy Father's 1st visit to the ~USA~. I've always enjoyed that term: PopeMobile ! along with his Renaissance 'getup', it all makes me laugh .. . .
