The Lyrics

beaten with this song to the site by a brilliant parody writer (you know who you is, man)and great lyrics
Yeah da Pope now, he runs a contry
We all know as de Vat-E-Can
Bot now dat he kick de bocket
We gatta choose a-nodda one

Whoooaaaa

Oh de Popes a ganna
Yeah de Popes a ganna
Oh de Popes a ganna
Yeah de Pope Is gan
Oh de Popes a ganna
Yeah de Popes a ganna
Now we choose a-nodda one

Now de Arch-bishop He leads de contry
He doesn't want no co-mo-shun
Cos he knows if he keeps de people calm
He may get pro-mo-shun
I wanna know if you blind arch-bish-up
If you don't want to hear de sound of drum
I tink dat you whities had your chance
It's time for a coloured one

Whoooaa

Oh de Popes a ganna
Yeah de Popes a ganna
Oh de Popes a ganna
Yeah de Pope Is gan
Oh de Popes a ganna
Yeah de Popes a ganna
Now we choose a-nodda one

OOH we know we da wrong relidge-un
But I'm sure dat we can con-vert
Cos me bred-rin already wear da bling
I'll nominate me mate Del-bert
Now de Pope's into wearing dresses
Me don't tink Del can handle dat
But you give him some weed and ganger seed
I'm sure he would wear dat hat

Whoooaaaa

Oh de Popes a ganna
Yeah de Popes a ganna
Oh de Popes a ganna
Yeah de Pope Is gan
Oh de Popes a ganna
Yeah de Popes a ganna
Now we choose a-nodda one

We gatta idea to please da contry
Replace de wine wid de good bar-ley
And den we sing a homage to
De great Ziggi mar-ley
But de catolics picked a honky
I tink dey don't like our shade of tan
But you'd tink wid da past per-for-man-ses
Dey might have choose da younger man

Whoooaaaa

Oh de Popes a ganna
Yeah de Popes a ganna
Oh de Popes a ganna
Yeah de Pope Is gan
Oh de Popes a ganna
Yeah de Popes a ganna
Now we choose a-nodda one

Whoooaaaa

So please pass de ganja
Oh please pass de ganja
Yeah man pass de ganja
Now me hope is gan
Me is not dat greedy
So please buy me CD
Least I might make number one

Thank you, Doug. Flattery will get you... well not much really; but this sort of parody should get a few plaudits :-)

Maybe it was all dat ganja that caused you to spell Eddy wrong though (check the pic on the right). A quick check on the link under the name shows you're in good company though. Puff. Puff.

Weep with laughter...as a Catholic, I never thought I'd find a song that summed up my feelings about last year so well. Bloody brilliant...I'm sending the link to all my friends.
