...and a disappointing speech at he UN:

Not a word on Iraq,
not a word on hunger in the world,
not a word on Israel,

only some abstract remarks on human rights and lame apologies for  
victims of sex abuse by his gay clegy --
What a useless jerk old Ratzi is...


Tom Lehrer:
Vatican Rag

http://de.youtube.com/watch?v=3f72CTDe4-0

First you get down on your knees,
Fiddle with your rosaries,
Bow your head with great respect,
And genuflect, genuflect, genuflect!

Do whatever steps you want if
You have cleared them with the Pontiff.
Everybody say his own
Kyrie eleison,
Doin' the Vatican Rag.

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!

So get down upon your knees,
Fiddle with your rosaries,
Bow your head with great respect,
And genuflect, genuflect, genuflect!

Make a cross on your abdomen,
When in Rome do like a Roman;
Ave Maria,
Gee, it's good to see ya.
Gettin' ecstatic an' sorta dramatic an'
Doin' the Vatican Rag!
