Ordain an Owlie!



Ordain an Owlie 

I flew away from my tree 
For a nocturnal degree 
A doctorate in Liberation Ornithology 

I need to get me ordained 
My church is far too restrained 
The Catholic Church needs to change
Oh, Lord why won’t they see? 

My wings are flapping 
Now your toes are tapping 
Owlies’ fans are clapping 
Tweet-a-whoo!
Let’s ordain Owlie! 

 Hey God is calling! 
And this is crazy! 
The other churches 
Don’t appreciate me
Listen to my wisdom 
But don’t delay me! 
Somebody’d better 
Ordain an Owlie! 

Hey God is calling! 
And it’s amazing! 
I’ve got the vestments 
So ordain Owlie! 
The other Churches 
They don’t understand me 
So here is wisdom
Ordain an Owlie! 

Instrumental Break 

I’ll never throw in the towel 
For was not St Paul an owl? 
Why won’t they ordain me now? 
I'll never fly away!

I need a parish right now 
A country village or town 
Why won’t the Pope hear my sound? 
He must be in my way! 

My wings are flapping 
Now your toes are tapping 
Owlies’ fans are clapping 
Tweet-a-whoo!
Let’s ordain Owlie! 

 Hey, God is calling! 
And this is crazy! 
No other hurches 
Appreciate me
Listen to my wisdom 
But don’t delay me! 
Somebody’d better 
Ordain this Owlie! 

Hey God is calling! 
And it’s amazing 
I’ve got the vestments 
So ordain Owlie! 
I can do Tradition
My maniple, see?
I'll do anything just
Ordain an Owlie! 

The Lord God made me the wisest of His birdies, yeah 
The wise men, they had nothing on the Owlies, yeah
The Lord God made me the wisest of His birdies, yeah
After the wise men came a flock of wise Owlies

Now, its the year 2013
Isn't it about time 
We ordained an Owlie!?

Hey, God is calling! 
This may seem crazy!
But other churches 
Don’t appreciate me! 
Listen to my wisdom 
God won’t forsake me! 
Somebody’d better 
Ordain an Owlie! 

Hey, God is calling! 
And it’s amazing 
I’ve got the vestments 
So ordain Owlie!

Ain't it time the Owlies smashed the Humanarchy?
So won’t somebody just ordain an Owlie!?


Happy Feast of the Epiphany, readers!

Slightly less risible than the WOC production... at least the Owl has the liturgical sense to wear a maniple...

Keep up the good work, Bones!

I don't give two hoots about this.

Wow, someone has far too much time on their hands. What have you been smoking?

Owls can't be baptised so your whole concept is a bit lame really.

ROFLOL - Love it!

King Andrew misses the point.

It would be as sacramentally valid to baptise Owlie as it would be to ordain a woman.

Liberation ornithology ... stifled snort followed by rampant giggles.

Well done, Laurence. You're not old enough to remember Ollie Beak, are you?
The Bones said…
No, but Owlie says the name rings a bell.

Hoots, mon!

Excellent stuff.

That's pretty funny. See what you've done there, you've taken a joke those girls did on their spoof video, used the exact same tune and structure, and changed the words to relate to a now irrelevant and less amusing owl theme. Comedy.Legend.
The Bones said…
Ah, well, P. Can't please everyone.

Can our Owlies join in, they like singing too?
