St John of the Cross

St John speaks friendly to Teresa
"Those Roman Catholics
Think they're fantastic"
And Mickie P moves into TV
He'll be the H-Bomb
In English sitcom

In '36 the Crux Gemmata
Became more Hardcore;
It was a fashion show
The Early Christian guys walked softly;
It was a disguise
From Roman Eyes

And we say
"Don't think
Don't ask
Everything you need
You'll find it in a hip flask"

We cut to Spain, young St Teresa
A burning arrow of love
From God saying
"Let's get tough!"
Oh Lord preserve us from those Catholics
They've got the stupidest nuns
And the most humourless saints
Bar none!
But De la Cruz faced Torquemada
He was more hardcore
But they got him on the floor, so
Through persecution, then seclusion
And alogia
He whispered, "see ya"
And we say
"Don't think
Don't ask
Everything you need
You'll find it in a hip flask"
Yeah! Everything you need
You'll find it in a hip flask
