The Lyrics

In memoriam, Karol Josef Wojtyla, 1920-2005.
Ah, look at all the lonely, papal.

Ah, look at all the lonely, papal.

Karol Wojtyla
grew up in Poland with Nazis a threat to invade.
Evil displayed.
Could not be silent
worked with the underground until the Germans were gone.
He must fight on.

All the lonely, papal.
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely, papal.
Who can they all count on?

Father Wojtyla
Archbishop leading the faithful in Krakow so cold.
Standing so bold.
Look at him preaching
standing up to the authorities of Soviets.
Bad as it gets.

All the lonely, papal.
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely, papal.
Who can they all count on?

Ah, look at all the lonely, papal.

Ah, look at all the lonely, papal.

John Paul the Second
bringing together the people from fighting so long
make freedom strong.
Trembling and shaking
trying to keep on with cause to which he's been so true.
Who'll fill his shoes?

All the lonely, papal.
(Ah, look at all the lonely, papal.)
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely, papal.
(Ah, look at all the lonely, papal.)
Who can they all count on?

I'm not Catholic, but I admit that he was a great leader of the world - not just the church.

This is very nice.

This is one of many parodies that proves that "AmIRight" needs to change the scoring panel. It should not say "How funny," but rather "How effective." This parody is not at all funny, but it deserves a "5" for "How effective."
