Lyrics:[]

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!
