The Lyrics

Another funny spoof with a serious point -- and the caricature is not only of backslidden Catholics but also of way-out Pentecostals and stuck-up liberal Protestants. My only-somewhat-fictitious church is a combination of all of the above. And ---- another parody of a pre-1960 song for which the "decade" tab only has "misc" to offer!
The elders say to hug and kiss the other guys, (other guys)
But it's wrong to hug a girl and they won't tell my why. (tell me why)
Now I know what means "hypocrisy",
Tomfoolery!

The sisters here, they say they're sworn to chastity, (chastity)
But they hug, kiss, bump and grind each other constantly! (constantly)
Call it homosensuality (ality),
Tomfoolery!

Well, I know they're not like me, whata sick mentality!
Messing with the boys when they confess. (they confess)
And the girls' bad attitude,
Oh brother, aren't they rude!
Jesus needs to straighten out this mess!!! (out this mess)

No, the father ain't OK and no, he's not just hoarse.
This mass is being celebrated by a corpse.
He shoulda let my sonny's weener be! (weener be)
Tomfoolery!

(Instrumental)

Well, I know they're not like me, whata sick mentality!
Money seems to be their only god. (only god)
And the cliques that they have formed,
That's where so much hate is born,
Their doorpost should be labelled Ichabod!!! (Ichabod)

One time Homer & Jethro tried to spoof this song,
Perhaps they quipped that Gibson got the words all wrong,
But they couldn't match his popularity
With "Lonesome Me" tomfoolery!

"Ichabod" means "the glory has departed" and is sometimes used by fundamentalists to describe an apostate church.

Well said....wish I had a penny for every dollar the Catholic Church has paid out in pedophile priest-related damages. The "let my sonny's weener be" line was funny, and sad, and oh so apropo. 555
