The Vatican Rag

A friend of mine sent this to me and it's just wonderful:

It's fucking brilliant:

Get in line in that processional,
Step into that small confessional,
There, the guy who's got religion'll
Tell you if your sin's original.
If it is, try playin' it safer,
Drink the wine and chew the wafer,
Two, four, six, eight,
Time to transubstantiate!

I might be Tom Lehrer fan now.


  1. This is so awesome!! Coincidentally, I used to work as a secretary where Tom Lehrer was a professor (UCSC), and he was always especially kind and friendly to us "staff." (A lot of the academics were snobby, but not him). I just love his music. I brought in homemade cookies and tried to share them with him, but he wouldn't have any...didn't eat sugar. Also, I think he's CF!

  2. Oh wow, Dori, that's awesome! What a cool guy. :D
