"Holy Mail"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

A low-bitrate mp3 of the song can be found here.
Pope’s up this morning with a dang’rous grin
He is gonna beat the secr’t’ries, see letter box within
He’s seen marching alone
To door post, for the holy mail

Tossed ‘em out: freakin’ invoices boring; Ads for
Web Hosts - no way he - falls for adoring
Loan ex-tends and Lifeline vying - to get advan-
tage in holy mail...

Well an asser-tion Reader’s Digest made:
He’d won ‘im some millions! (now maybe he’ll get laid!)
Yeah he praised Jehovah as he smote
That unholy mail

Then the Pontiff muttered
Vaguely dropped it in the snow
There was a card from some
Avowed Mormonly folk
And it really made him wonder
How he wound up on Provo-ly mail...

Pitch for some Lee Jeans
And for some Armani ties
And some Liz Claiborne
And Chanel Number 5
Well it do make a change - yeah!
Go, bulky ol’ robes - bye bye!

You know Ratz, at next circ’lar did a queasy rant
It said ‘Vatican Occu-pant’
Raised his eyes, how’d they not know
That this was Palace of the Po’...?

The Sistine ain’t nouveau

Just fill out orders
CDs: three for ($)ten
Floyd, Nirvana & Stones
(No Gregor-i-an)
Un-revere
A sacrilege is that holy mail !

Pope-Man! Latin Rule swore at holy mail!

Amazingly clever, and very funny. . .though I had never heard the OS before today. . .great write guys. . .and good luck on your rather precarious problems of collective religious spam. I seem to get that a lot .. .

555 for this heavenly Parody! Loved that < vat o'Can Pant > !!! Might the Cardinal Joseph RatSinger enjoy this?!? Hey, he's an Austrian, he's got a sense of humor!

Eh? The Pope-man was born in Bavaria (Germany). Hitler was an Austrian but a lot of people (for some strange reason) thought he was German. Are you getting the two of them confused ? ;-p
