The Lyrics

As if the Catholic sex abuse scandals couldn't have gotten any worse....I just read that in the Netherlands in the 50's, young boys who confessed to the priests that they had been abused were routinely castrated in order to "protect" themselves from homosexuality.
Hey little boy, come in here and confess
If there's something you just gotta get off your chest
Oh, don't you be a liar
Oooh, I'm a friar

Tell me now, did you say that Brother John
Touched you in a private place when you had no trousers on
Af...ter you sang in choir
Oooh, I'm a friar

Well that must mean you're turning gay, and that's no good at all
So the only thing to do is to amputate your balls

Don't worry, little boy, you'll be fine you see
We can have you sing soprano when you're seventy-three
I sing low...but you'll sing higher
Oooh, I'm a friar

(high pitched castrati voices sing the ooh-ooh-oohs at the end)

Reportedly the boys were castrated to "cure" them of homosexuality. Sick, sick, sick. Castrato is not a profession you can pass on from father to son.
