Take it away, Holy Father!
As some day it may happen that a victim must be found, I've got a little list – I've got a little list Of the Catholics that we are trying to drive underground, And who never would be missed – who never would be missed! There's the creed-reciting parrot-Christians meaning what they say – The fomenter of coprophagia - he has had his day – The self-absorbed Promethean neo-Pelagian - And airport bishops, who are quite authoritarian, Museum mummies, and of course the fundamentalist – They'd none of 'em be missed – they'd none of 'em be missed! CHORUS (Spadaro, Martin and Rosica): He’s got 'em on the list – he’s got 'em on the list; And they'll none of 'em be missed – they'll none of 'em be missed.
"I'm sure they'll not be missed."
Mr and Mrs Whiner, and the others of their race - And the old triumphalist - I’ve got him on the list! And the existential tourist with a pickled-pepper face - He never would be missed – he never would be missed! Then the sloth-diseased acedic Christian - he'll be going soon, The slaves of superficiality, the sourpuss priest-tycoon; And the modern gnostics, rigid Christians, who are too polite - The Christian bats who still prefer the shadows to the light! And then the querulous and disillusioned pessimist – I don’t think he'd be missed – I’m sure he'd not be missed! CHORUS. He’s got him on the list – he’s got him on the list; And I don’t think he'll be missed – I’m sure he'll not be missed!
"Buddy, can you spare a paradigm?"
And that type of leprous courtier, who just now is rather rife, The restorationist – I’ve got him on the list! Promoters of the poison of immanence, causing strife – They'd none of 'em be missed – they'd none of 'em be missed. And those cardinals who know their faith, but will not change their mind, Such as – What d'ye call him – Raymond Thingy, and Walter - Never-mind, And then there's Gerhard What's-his-name, and Robert You-know-who – The task of filling up the blanks I'd rather leave to you. But it really doesn't matter whom you put upon the list, For they'd none of 'em be missed – they'd none of 'em be missed! CHORUS. You may put 'em on the list – you may put 'em on the list; And they'll none of 'em be missed – they'll none of 'em be missed!
"Let's go for a drink - I don't think we'll be missed."
