The Lyrics

Heard it from the Rev who
Cannot comprehend you
With a holy Mother have been messin' around
They say you got a nun friend
You think she'll help you a-scend?
Unfrocking her virtue is a-where you are bound

You would know the sisterhood
You're sewin' reapin' purgatory so good
'Cus her wimple grows looser way past compline
But I'm telling you, babe
That this you're gonna rue, babe
And even if she is glebe dish divine

You're takin' out a nun, baby
It's treading on thin ice now, maybe
When you a-ffront holy ground
You try some thievin' under her habit
Your fumblin' will stun when you're takin' out a nun

You better act with surprise
You're questioned by the FBI
I think you're running through the commandments ten
But brimstone is a-coming
If you keep up with this nunning
Think you need Order of Carmeline

You're takin' out a nun, baby
You had to raid the convent, baby
Know you don't date one vow-bound
I can't conceive it - should go to gibbet
Your label is scum when you're takin' out a nun

(Benedictine Chant intro)

Takin' out a nun, baby
Now she's halfway uncloistered maybe
Said that you want her uncowled
Try to achieve it - you can't unsin it
Find plunderin' fun so you're takin' out a nun

Takin' out a nun, baby
Go flyin' with Betrille-it baby
Hope the Pope sends you hell-bound
It's so egregious - hot (s)ex-commune it
Your Sunday's undone 'cus you're takin' out a nun

Heard it from the Rev who
Cannot comprehend you
Better see the Father be confessin' it now!

And before the parody police arrive with sirens blaring - yes, I KNOW it's realy 'Carmelites', not Carmeline.... ;-)

Too funny! I love the line "Go flyin" with Betrille-it baby" ! You're really showing your age on that "Flying Nun" reference! I'm surprised that piece of TV trivia has lingered in your brain all these years. Good work yet again!

ROFLMAO! Someones goin' to confession tomorrow!! I especially liked the line "Hope the Pope sends you hell-bound." Great alignment with the original line.

DKTOS - sorry. You two seem to do a lot of songs that I don't know which makes me realize that I am probably missing out on some real good chuckles. Anywhere to sample the original on this?

Brilliant ! 'And even if she is glebe dish divine' Love that word 'glebe' ! Great line too, guys.

...and Claude read the parody, and he saw that it was good. And Claude said, "Let there be fives." And there were fives. Then Claude said, "Ah, crap; now I gotta put off my Sheryl Crow 'Soap Up A Nun' parody for awhile." But great job dudes.

Sorry Claude - know how you feel - but I don't mind if you put it up!
