Borrowing from the 1960s Vietnam lament....
"And it's 1..2...3 what are we praying for (4)?
We dont wanna be damned, stay away you conciLIAR man!
And it's 5.6..7 St Peter's at the pearly gates..
In a modernist church I dont want to die."
(Country Joe McDonald ~ I Feel Like I'm Fixin to Die Rag
And it's 1, 2, 3, what'r we fightin' for (4)?
Don't ask me I don't give a damn
Next stop is Viet Nam!
And it's 5, 6, 7, open up the pearly gates (G8s)!
Ain't no time to wonder why -
Whooopie! We're all gonna die!
"Back to the SSPX......you're gonna be sorry boy....back to the SSPX!"
(Beatles, White Album ~ Back in the U.S.S.R.)
You don't know how lucky you are, boys,
Back in the US- Back in the US- Back in the USSR!
"Somebody's knocking on the door, somebody's ringing church bells,
it's Bishop Fellay at the door, open the modernist gates and let him in..."
(Paul McCartney, '76, Wings at the Speed of Sound ~ Let 'Em In.)
Someone's knockin' at the door
Someone's ringin' the bell
Do me a favor, open the door
And let him in. Yeah, yeah
Sister Suzie, Brother John,
Martin Luther, Phil and Don
Brother Micheal, Auntie Jin,
Open the door, Let 'em in, oh yeah.
"Gather us in at the steps of the newrome, gather us in cuz were lonely out here,
we want to be full of communion, we want a taste of apostate cheer!"
(Protestant hymn, swing style/folk tune)
Shall we gather at the river where bright angel feet have trod?
With its crystal tide forever, flowing by the throne of God
Yes, we'll gather at the river, the beautiful, the beautiful river
Gather with the saints at the river, that flows by the throne of God.
"Dont trust the Fellaymen, lest you will tricked twice,
Dont trust the Fellaymen, because they'll take to newrome's side!"
(The Who, 1971 ~ Won't Get Fooled Again) this is probably wrong... but, not bad...
We'll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgement of our wrongs
They decide and the shotgun sings the song
I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the four-minute song
And the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed
'Cause the banners, they all flown in the last war
Kudos to those who know what songs I am parodying. :geezer:
