The Pope From Argentina

Original Song: "The Girl From Ipanema" by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Norman Gimbel

In a twist so unexpected
The guy from Argentina's elected
The job was offered, the answer proffered was - si

Though he'd rather keep it humble
He has to wear the white ensemble
And when he passes, the Cath'lic masses say - whee

Oh, South American pontiff
What kind of changes are coming
You're now the Vatican's sheriff
Will you make it the new policy
That meals must include mate* tea

Tell me now, what were the chances
That there would be a pope named Francis
He's moving slowly; he's old, but he's holy - see?

* pronounced mah-tay, a popular Argentinian drink
