The Lyrics

This parody is a somewhat late response to a challenge from Phil Alexander to write a parody about the sinking of a floating Irish church: Original news story here as long as still up
Where there's souls in for fire
Where there's Bibles on the ground
Where they're wet from desire
There's a clergy going down
Cox made a maiden trip, three to pray
Whales were there to stake them out, made them gay
SS Church-Afloat, casually
But now they've joined Jonah un-naturally

Sank the Church, 'twas like Titanic
Woah, the lurch, that caused panic
There was water, but no float
Better place was, the life boat
Sank the Church
Woah, the lurch

Cox the Healer remained dry
Gimmick Ship just sank - Goodbye
God's rule did strike his jewel
Submerged to purge this fool
Cox wants the Bible taught on his yacht
But ol' God was crackin' up, wet that plot
He said "Take that de-pravity
No go, such blatant rot, pub-lic'ty"

Sank the Church, through locomotion
Now it's found, in the ocean
Freezing water, all baptized
Irish moral, stays pint-sized
Sank the Church
Woah, the lurch

Sank the Church, 'twas like Titanic
Felt the lurch, it caused panic
There was water, but no float
Better place was, the life boat
Fell off perch
Now to search
Glub - Glub - Glub
Sank the Church

I thought it was just a mass baptism.

Maybe some anglers will locate the wreck with fish-finding-sonar during a bass maptism.

Now I'm going to be looking in your comments for a phrase I can turn and return to you, Johnny.

Hmm.. by Peter and Luke? Sounds like two of the disciples... Well done, though :-)

Phil: Can an old co-op project be reposted in the name of the Monkeys? Or would you say that be wrong? I'm thinking of another AC/DC parody and you know which one. :-)
