He puts the papa in paparazzi: Francis and the ever-present Humblecam.

With so many reasons for “traditionalists” (aka Catholics) to weep openly these days, it’s high time for a little levity.

Mama Watch Me

Headed down the road and feelin’ just fine
Humblin’ my way to the Office Petrine
Starin’ up to Rome
Pray to God I see cameras

I made it to the loggia and asked ‘em to pray
Returned to the hotel the very next day
And I’m a hopin’ and a prayin’
They can see me payin’ alright

So watch me mama keep a looking at me
Watch me mama my humility
Hey, mama watch me
Watch me mama I’m a washin’ the feet
Watch me mama gettin’ down on my knees
Hey, mama watch me

Runnin’ from the mess I made in Argentina
Got an ear for Marty Haugen not much for Palestrina
I’m a partial Pentecostal
And a Jew somehow

Oh, those ol’ Ros’ry counters keep a gettin’ me down
Lost my sense of the sacred so I had to lash out
But I ain’t turnin’ back
To livin’ that old faith no more

So watch me mama keep a looking at me
Watch me mama my humility
Hey, mama watch me
Watch me mama I’m a washin’ the feet
Watch me mama gettin’ down on my knees
Hey, mama watch me

Talkin’ to the press on the papal plane
Jesuit perspective
Some think me insane
I know what I’m doin’ no slip of the tongue
It’s manifest heresy

And I got to get a move on before it’s too late
The one-world-religion
Can no longer wait
And if I die in office
They’ll canonize me

So watch me mama keep a looking at me
Watch me mama my humility
Hey, mama watch me
Watch me mama I’m a washin’ the feet
Watch me mama gettin’ down on my knees
Hey, mama watch me
