I was minding my business
The roof of the Holy Name church
To set my eyes on the blistering sight
He's not strange

With a decorative ring
As Rose collects the money in a canister
The Vicar in a tutu
He just wants to live his life this way
The monkish monsignor
Said : "My man, get your vile soul dry-cleaned"
As natural as rain
My God!
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

With freedom and ease
As Rose counts the money in the canister
He dances again and again and again
In the fabric of a tutu
And I am the living sign
I am a living sign
I am a living sign
