image for Papal Musical On The Way

Elvis Presley, Eva Peron, Buddy Holly have all had one. Now, so too, does Pope John Paul II: a musical dedicated to his life.

Entitled Cotta A Esigenze (Surplice To Requirements), this show, like the others, is bustling with show-stopping songs, dance routines and drama.

The musical was written by two priests, one who wrote the script, the other who crafted the songs.

The Spoof has obtained an advance copy of the soundtrack running order -

"Il Papa Don't Preach"

"Whispering Mass"

"Hey, You, Get Off My Lawn"

"Son Of My Father"

"The Cardinal Is Over"

"Can The Canon"

"Stuck Inside The Popemobile (With the Vatican Blues Again)"

"I've Gotta Get An Edict To You"

"If Paradise (Is Half As Nice)"

"Save Your Papal Kisses For Me"

"I've Got A Brand New Combined Promulgation"

"Don't Cry For Me, Avelina"

"Do Ya Think I'm Sixty"

"Hit Me With Your Papal Mace"

"Are Friends Ecumenical"

"I Don't Like Maundys"


"Should I Pray Or Should I Go"
