I couldn’t resist…

Something about this album I found today just epitomizes the late pontiff pictured therein…

  1. And this, just in…

    From the upcoming documentary: “Just HOW Awesome Was Santo Subito?”

  2. Oh, I forgot….

    A big YAH HAAAY to effryvun down by Broadvay!

    Sto lat!

  3. I miss being able to access the AQ archives for parody songs. I recall that we had some pretty good Polka Mass stuff.

    • Yep! If we could retrieve your “I’m A Novus Ordo Dandy” it would be an act of heroic virtue! I only recovered a year ago from all the ribs I broke when I read it!

      Anyway, I don’t have time right now, but in the interest of keeping the ol’ team spirit alive, here’s the Beer Barrel Polka lyrics ( Bobby Vinton version ). Knock yerselves out, gang….. ( Four giant pretzels and a keg to the winner! ) Sto lat!

      There’s a garden, what a garden
      Only happy faces bloom there
      And there’s never any room there
      For a worry or a gloom there

      Oh there’s music and there’s dancing
      And a lot of sweet romancing
      When they play the polka
      They all get in the swing

      Every time they hear that com-pa-pa
      Everybody feels so tra-la-la
      They want to throw their cares away
      They all go lah-de-ah-de-ay

      Then they hear a rumble on the floor, the floor
      It’s the big surprise they’re waiting for
      And all the couples form a ring
      For miles around you’ll hear them sing

      Roll out the barrel, we’ll have a barrel of fun
      Roll out the barrel, we’ve got the blues on the run
      Zing boom tararrel, ring out a song of good cheer
      Now’s the time to roll the barrel, for the gang’s all here

      Da-da-da-da, da-da-da-da, da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da

      Then they hear a rumble on the floor-or-or-or
      It’s the big surprise they’re waiting for
      And all the couples they form a ring
      For miles around you’ll hear them sing

      Drree mopado theedo da-da-da-da

      —–instrumental break—–

      Roll it out, roll it out, roll out the barrel
      Da-da-da da-da da-da da-da-da-da-da
      Sing a song of good cheer
      ‘Cause the whole gang is here
      Roll it out, roll it out
      Let’s do the beer barrel polka

      (Y’know, after thinking about it, I’m not.sure those lyrics even need a parody. They seem to fit the Santo Subito era perfectly, as is!)
