Tim Minchin’s Pope Song – with chords

This song is my interpretation of Tim Minchin’s wonderful piece of biting social commentary. It is, appropriately, in the key of F. (See it on YouTube)

A link to my ukulele version can be found at the bottom of this post.

C                                             F
Fuck the motherfucker. Fuck the motherfucking Pope.


F
Fuck the motherfucker, and fuck you motherfucker 
F                                 C
If you think that motherfucker is sacred. 
C
If you cover for another motherfucker who's a kiddie fucker, 
C                                   F
Fuck you! You're no better than the motherfucking rapist. 


Bb
And if you don't like the swearing that this motherfucker forced from me
F
And reckon it shows moral or intellectual paucity 
G7
Then fuck you motherfucker, this is language one employs
C                               
When one is fucking cross about fuckers fucking boys. 


F
I don't give a fuck if calling the Pope a motherfucker
F                                    C
Means you unthinkingly brand me an unthinking apostate. 
C
This has nowt to do with other fucking godly motherfuckers, 
C                                       F
I'm not interested right now in fucking scriptural debate.


Bb
There are other fucking songs and there are other fucking ways, 
F
I'll be a religious apologist on other fucking days 
G7
And the fact remains if you protect a single kiddie fucker 
C
Then pope or prince or plumber you're a fucking motherfucker. 


F
You see, I don't give a fuck what any other motherfucker
F                            C
Believes about Jesus and his motherfucking mother. 
C
I've no problem with the spiritual beliefs of all these fuckers, 
C                                        F
whilst those beliefs don't impact on the happiness of others. 


Bb
But if you build your church on claims of fucking moral authority 
F
And with threats of hell impose it on others in society 
G7
Then you, you motherfuckers, can expect some fucking wrath 
C                                               CaddG#
when it turns out you've been fucking us in our motherfucking asses. 


F
So fuck the motherfucker, and fuck you motherfucker 
F                               C
If you're still a motherfucking papist. 
C
If he covered for a single motherfucker who's a kiddie fucker, 
C                              F
Fuck the motherfucker! He's as evil as the rapist. 


Bb
And if you look into you motherfucking heart and tell me true 
F
That this motherfucking stupid fucking song offended you,
G7                                       C
With its filthy fucking language and its fucking disrespect, 
C                             CaddG#
If it made you feel angry go ahead and write a letter. 


F                                          C
But if you find me more offensive then the fucking possibility
F                                           C
- the pope protected priests when they were getting fucking fiddly -
F
Then listen to me motherfucker, this here is a fact: 
F
You are just as morally misguided as that 
               Bb                             C                           F
motherfucking, power hungry, self-aggrandised bigot in the stupid fucking hat.


(Repeat and Fade)
F
Fuck the motherfucker. Fuck the motherfucker. 
F
Fuck the motherfucker. Fuck the motherfucker. 

Edit:
I have created a version of this song with chords for the ukulele. Now you can teach it to your children, so they can play it in the school talent show. ;-)
