The Lyrics

Take me down to the Vatican City
Where the nuns are tough and the priests are pretty
MAKE (oh won't you) ME (please make me) POPE

Take me down to the Vatican City
Where the great big hats make the pilgrims giddy
MAKE (oh won't you) ME (please make me) POPE

Just you listen if a pope's whatcha seek:
I walk - past church five days a week!
I can really relate with every sinner and freak
So pass the sacramental WINE
Listen dudes the throne should be mine!

I'm your pontiff with pax appeal
I got some - buff bishops and some nuns of steel
I got some - parish'ners pimpin' out the popemobile
'Cause flashin' holy bling is my GAME
Pope John Paul George Ringo's my name!

Take me down to the Vatican City
Where we wait for smoke from the Cards' committee
Oh won't you please make me pope - yeah yeah

Take me down where my scepter and cape'll
Make me look less gay and a lot more papal
MAKE - ME - POPE

After confession and quick paternoster
Let's ride my holy roller cosster
We'll praise St Pauli on a blest St Martin beach
I'll catch a wave and surf the Apostolic SEE
With Archangelina Jolie

Take me down to the Vatican City
Where you can't have sex - though I don't alriddy
MAKE - ME - POPE - yeah yeah

Take me down where the overpriced metro
Drops you two damn blocks out of San Pi-etro
Oh won't you please make me POPE - yeah

Give us - this day
Our pope - they say
I'll smile - and wave
Now go - AWAY

Hey - pull your mitered head out of your past - the
College of Cardinals needs an English class - because
That Latin stuff is just a pain in the mass!
And put this slum where we dwell
UP FOR SALE
Let's get a place in Cozu-mel!

Take me down to the Vatican City
It's a whole coun-try but it's itty bitty
MAKE - ME - POPE - yeah yeah

Take me down where a five-Euro map'll
Guide you one half block to the Sistine Chapel
Oh won't you please make me pope

Take me down to the middle of Roma
Where they've got more corn than in Oklahoma
MAKE - ME - POPE - yeah yeah

Take me down where my sins'll get pardoned
And the Swiss Guards play when they're through Swiss Guardin'
Oh won't you please make me POOOOOOOPE
POOOOOOOPE

St Peter's Square
Hail Me in there
Oh won't you please make me pope

I'll guarantee
Dope papacy
Oh won't you please make me dope
[I mean pope]

Take me down to the Vatican City
Where the art is great but the crowds are [censer'd]
MAKE (oh won't you) ME (please make me) POPE

Take me down to the Square of St Peter
Where the Square ain't square but the nuns ain't either
Oh won't you please make me pope

Get your highs (Oh yeah)
Canonized
Oh, won't you please make me pope

I wanna own (Oh yeah)
San Pi-e-tro (Oh yeah)
Oh won't you please make me pope

The Holy See
Boy it's lookin' for me
Oh - oh make me pope

Take me down to the Vatican City
Where the nuns are tough and the priests are pretty
Oh won't you please make me pope

I wanna be
Pope John Paul Three
Oh, won't you please make me POOOOOOOPE

Ciao!
Baby!

Adagio- I applaud Spaff's honesty, when the easy thing to do would be to jump on the bandwagon-- the nice, polite PC parade--it's the frankness and not the funniness, that shines here, to me; I'm just not impressed with the glorification of man. That's my humble opinion.

Okay Spaff.com, NOW I'm convinced you are not from this world ( as several other Amirighters have speculated ). " ....pimpin out the popemobile " and "...Archangelina Jolie ". LOL, those alone deserves a 5 for funny. Only complaint here is that it rhymes TOO well, as TOS has several close-but-not-perfect rhymes ( you REALLY need to work on those ). Pretty sure GnR would never sing this, but it is hilarious to imagine Axl doing so. ....Red Ant presses the automatic Spaff.com voting button ( a.k.a. the unlisted 555 choice )......

It's the timing on this parody not the content in my opinion that makes this inappropriate. Perhaps waiting until after the funeral and when the election process would be in full swing would have been more appropriate. Jeez Spaff you didn't even wait until the man was in the ground before you posted this. The man deserves the same respect as any respectable world leader. Would we have done this to JFK or Reagan during the period they rested in state?

You miss the point. The whole structure of the Vatican City scam is being pointed out here. And I'm sure alot of people think exactly what is said in this parody, they just don't have the eloquence to put it this way.

Wow - a battle of the pseudonyms. I won't argue that this is "inappropriate." Most of my stuff is inappropriate to somebody. At least I hope it is, or it wouldn't be satire. Hell, even freaking "Pepsi Blue" has angered a few people.

Let me reiterate what I said in my previous comment: I'm not making fun of JP2's death here. This isn't about that. In fact, I was careful to make it NOT about JP2 (the person) at all. It's about a dumb guy (played by me in a bit of typecasting) wanting to be the next pope.

If GWB dies in office, will I write about wanting to be the next POTUS? That's a stellar suggestion, actually. I envision a smackdown with Dick Cheney. Sweet.

Excellent, as always, Spaff! I love the line "Hey - pull your mitered head out of your past". Clearly, the only reference to the recently departed pope, is your line "Pope John Paul George Ringo's my name!" Sheer coincidence that he shared names with two of your four favorite guys. Come on people -- it's PARODY! 555!

EXCELLENT!!! BEYOND EXCELLENT!! This parody, I must say, is the GREATEST PARODY I have ever read during my one year and a quarter tenure here at amiright!! Jesus himself is probably laughing at this!! And Royce Miller, I agree with you...though the Pope was a good man, I just don't grasp the notion of him being more pure than everyone else. On a final note, I would have to say my fav quote was Spaff's response about satire- It's not satire until someone is offended. That is the truth and I'm going to use that quote as a motto to anything that deals with parodies. Excellent writing, excellent topic, excellent everything!!!

YWN and others - I don't think Spaff was laughing at the Pope, just near the Pope and maybe just a bit too near for some. I have mixed feelings about this and none I wish to share here or now. I will say the parody had a lot of very clever lines and it really brought out a lot of the misconceptions and conceptions of the Church. It is parody in its truest form of which Spaff is a true master. Personally I'd had waited until the election process was in full operation as someone suggested above before posting. I think the effect would have been much more profound.

"Spaff Fan": Considering that Vaughn Meader's career crashed after JFK was killed, and the fact that only King Kong could claim a "lap-top" computer in 1963, and that "internet inventor" Al Gore was 15, I'd say no, we wouldn't have done this for the grandson of John F. Fitzgerald. Enough time has gone by that everyone feels comfortable about making fun of Jack, for his Bahston accent, his womanizing, and mostly for Ted. As for Reagan, he was never worth the trouble. If there's one good thing the Pope's death has accomplished, it has reminded us that he had a bigger role in the downfall of Eastern European Communism than Ronnie did in his acolytes' wildest dreams -- and I make no apologies, even in light of the death of the world's leading religious figure, for using the word "acolyte" here. And since it is now obvious that, A, tax cuts in time of deficits is the most idiotic economic idea of all, and B, that Reagan has Alzheimer's at least as far back as 1984 -- "We begin bombing in five minutes" -- and C, the Pope's stance and the Soviets' own crumbling infrastructure would have doomed them anyway, let us now admit the truth: Ronald Reagan was not a great President. He just played one on TV. It is, however, now safe to say that Bush is worse that Reagan, and worse than his own father. Only Nixon and the two nincompoops who let the Civil War happen, Frank Pierce and Jem Buchanan, remain lower. But I have faith in Bush -- only in this.

Spaff: You, the next President? Promise national health service, or I can promise you no chance at the New Jersey delegation at the Convention. YWN: As usual, you get it wrong. It is not the departed Pope that is drawing Spaff's satire, and the man was hardly overrated. And I'm a Protestant! (Though a Polish one.) Know1, if I may add to your joke: If Bill Clinton, Al Gore or John Kerry walked on water, the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy would say, "That liberal tax-hiking appeaser can't swim!"

Well, I was probably exaggerating, but it is uncomfortably closely linked to the pope's death. When I said the pope was overrated, I didn't mean that he is shown on the news everyday. My bad, poor choice of words. I meant that people tend to treat him with a little TOO much respect, you know what I mean? It is almost as if people equate him to Christ.

Followed your tracks here, Phil, Spaff. Wow, just wow! No wonder some veteran AIRheads lament the 'good old days'. Don't see many this good. Just when you think how many brilliant subs can you generate in one parody, here comes another. Wow, just wow. It's not often I'm at a loss for words. I added a 43rd set of fives.

What, you did even more lyrics for the recording as if this wasn't enough? :D

So won't you take me down to the Amiright city
Where the Spaff is Pope and the hymns are witty
Oh, won't you please make him pope...

:D
