1978 we lost Jp I
The church was prayin "God's will be done"
All the red hats had to make a trip to Rome
Each one wonderin if he'd make it back home
The cardinals take their place, each in a cell
They pray and discuss - kind-a-like show-and-tell
The prospect of new blood a non-Italian some said none
They overlooked the young brother in cell 91
There he was the chosen one - in cell 91
Nobody ever thought he would be the one
The Holy Ghost was workin - more power than a microwave
Somethin big goin down in St. Peter's conclave
A son from Poland - from the eastern block
Nobody knew his name -
It's time for him to lead the flock
A mystic man of deep prayer who knows how to seek and knock
What a shock - a Polock - livin large on the rock

Refrain: Totus Tuus...

Loleck Wujkeck Wotyja what a name
After JPII the church is never gonna be the same
10-16-78 he was 58
The man is connected with the mother of Heaven's gate
The decision was made went up in white smoke
The whole world knew the Church had a new pope
Marchin-on crossin the threshold of hope
Learned how to see climbin high on a mountain slope
She's workin over there he's workin over here
A mother-son combo together ain't no fear
We can't make it alone the combat is spiritual
The wall comin down? - believe it it's a miracle
Evidence? Plenty of it yo it's empirical.
A Catholic thing - it makes me Vaticanly lyrical.
What an enterprise all the saints he canonized
Totus Tuus got him covered can't take away the prize

"Dear young people, do not be content with anything less than the highest
ideals! Do not let yourselves be dispirited by those who are disillusioned
with life and have grown deaf to the deepest and most authentic desires
of the heart. The time has come to re-propose wholeheartedly to everyone
this high standard of ordinary Christian living. Refuse to sell your dreams
cheaply. Watch out for the dangerous ways that lead to passing joys and
satisfaction. Deepen your relationship with God through prayer. Prayer
spreads Divine energy. It makes us live in a new way and gives rise to
a revolutionary evangelical style."
