The Lyrics

One of two entries into the canon of pontificial parody...
Half an hour of smoke, black and white
A note, a vote, a brainwave
A choice, a voice, a balcony scene:
Pope! Goes the Conclave

On MSN a new GIF
Howdy-doody, hi there! I'm your
Pope! Goes the Pontiff

He'll be Benedict the Sixteenth
As JP crosses the Styx
Oh, God! No! No! Not a German
Pope! Goes the Cath'lics

Mine's a pint of Benedictine
Update th'encycopedia
Write in it another new
Pope! Goes the Media

Time to rush out into a church
Packed up to the steeple
Here they'll hear the words of the new
Pope! Goes the people

What the Hell's the fuss all about?
How odd, a God don't exist
So why on earth should we care, who's
Pope? Go the atheists

Good one Phil. He's being called the German Shepherd, I hear.

455, but I will say I Googled the lyrics for this and they were a PITA to find and incomplete at that. Very funny though.

I could just picture Allen Sherman singing this. I bracing myself for a deluge of Nazi- Pope jokes just like the Polish jokes about John Paul II.

Back in the late Fifties, Lenny Bruce (Leonard Alfred Schneider, Jewish) got in trouble for calling Pope John XXIII "John Baby." Were he alive today (he'd be 79, even older than Joey the Rat... I mean, His Holiness Benedict XVI), he'd probably be plotzing seeing this guy running things.

I enjoyed this, Phil.

:-) Thanks everyone -
Red Ant - I only know the first two verses of the original, but have about 200 variants on the "Pop goes the Weasel" theme :-)
2Eagle - I like that thought: "I Hate the Beatles" is a bit of a family favourite
Royce - thank you... I guess I'll have to try harder next time ;-)

Shaky pacing in places, use of humour was good, but I was expecting more laughs than I got 444

Is it too late for an "updated" version of Rino Maiden, I mean Iron Maiden's "Holy Smoke"? :-)
