The Lyrics

For the purpose of this parody, 6'1" is spoken as "six-one".
Well, I make the abbess weep
Looking like Meryl Streep
Black from head to feet
When I am done

I'd like to teach and bless
But I must still confess
I've worn out my last dress
And I need one

Nuts don't only come from trees
I'll wear what I want
And although it's heresy
I find it fun

Suspicious donning tights
Scaring Mennonites
I won't be sanctified
Unless I tithe

An old parable claims
That I have gone insane
I think my outfit's stained
From beer and wine

I fell into posts and pews
When I went to communion
It's leading them to conclude
I'm not a nun....

I'm male and 6'1"
But I'm wearing the apparel of a nun
I know that I'm shunned
I'm still wearing the apparel of a nun
They can kiss my bum (whatever, whatever)

Is it something you find funny
When my hair's in a bun?
When I'm at the nursery
The children run

I'm male and 6'1"
But I'm wearing the apparel of a nun
I know that I'm shunned (whatever, whatever)
I'm still wearing the apparel of a nun
They can kiss my bum (whatever, whatever)
I'm still wearing the apparel of a nun
