The Lyrics

It would have been incredibly tasteless and disrespectful to submit a song like this before His Holeyness was even buried, so I'm glad I waited cause now no one will be offended.
Dead Pope (Dead Pope)
Now when he was a young man,
He always wondered if
He could grow up
To be the Pontiff

(Dead Pope)
How'd you get so holy?
(Dead Pope)
Did you bless the lowly?

Spent his whole life prayin'
Now he is decayin'
Dead Pope

Now if I'd known
The people would anoint me
I'd saved up all my money
And bought a hat that's pointy

(Dead Pope)
Stop the freakin' traffic
(Dead Pope)
He's our favorite Cafflic

Don't want ladies choosin'
Covered up abusin'
Dead Pope

He did the Gospel spiel (Bible Pope)
A wafer was his meal (Hungry Pope)
He always loved to kneel (Humble Pope)
He rode the Popemobile

He gave his life for catechism

Now when I die,
Now don't think I'm a dope
Don't treat me like a big shot
Just a humble servant Pope

(Dead Pope)
Everybody's wiggin'
(Dead Pope)
Just cause he bit the big one
Don't like contraception
Causing much defection
Don't like contraception
That's the wrong go***mn direction
Dead Pope

DKTOS. I'm slow.
Heh heh. Actually, I worship Steve Martin almost as much as I worship Claude Prez. TMGLTM. I can't wait to see the comments on this one.

The thought of Steve Martin dressed as a Pope with a bunch of dancing gals and guys all dressed as Cardinals --- LOL !! Clever and witty, Claude ... and I have no doubt good ol' JP2 is laughing right along with you right now !!!

Let's not forget that he exalted Boston's archpederast, Bernie, Law, who sullied St. Pete's yesterday.

Well, there was that "Mad TV" bit, with priests inviting altar boys to dance with them, then ripping off their jackets so they looked like Chippendale dancers with clerical collars, singing "It's getting hot up herre"... ("up herre" instead of "in herre," I guess for copyright reasons)... which was funny for about ten seconds, then it got disgusting...

DKTOS on this one - but it's not Steve Martin as pope (Freudian typo: I put two 'o's in) you wanna see, but Robbie Coltraine.

Not too funny, but a good parody nonetheless. I give it a 5/2/5.

I laughed so hard I'll no doubt burn in hell - have some flame-broiled fives!

You get 555 from Ben Cafflic......

Claude, you're on fire... or will be, eventually ;) (Nice to know I won't burn alone!) Love this... and Johnny D. beat me to describing the hilarious visuals this inspires!

Ah, yes, "Near Boston, they're young and they're Catholic. One's cute and tough, one can act and write stuff... and the other one's name is Ben Affleck!" Some pitchers throw heat for 20 years and never toss a no-hitter, but that was Spaff's perfect game.

ha - brilliant stuff - and what Johnny D said - you have to know the Steve Martin performance to fully appreciate this - 555

Hey thanks everybody. Have to admit, I'm a little disappointed this didn't appear to offend anyone, though. Crap. Maybe they're all busy praying for me.
