GUEST, BS: Catholic Bishop and Priest Scandal (132* d) ADD: Boston Scandals 28 Mar 02

here is my song..tune is Boston Burglar


I am a Boston grandmother Catholic as can be
I never thought I'd see the day my church would fail me
My other sons were different hoodlums one and all
But little Aloysius I prayed would hear the call

I can see him on the altar with his bright and shining face
I wish I'd never let him set a foot within that place
What went on in that sacristy was a great and mortal sin
And now they're coming forward our boys who grew to men

Put the priests in jail and slam the iron door
And tell the other prisoners just what they're in there for
Then toss in the bishops and throw away the key
If I had my druthers they would never be set free

We went to our devotions the priest said let us pray
I guess we all know now it could be spelled another way
God protect the faithful who listened to them preach
And God protect the little boys who fell within their reach
