Friday Frivolity: The Catholic Pick-Up Song

A few weeks ago I compiled the list of “Top Twenty Catholic Pick-up Lines” (Part 1Part 2).  Did you wonder what it might be like if somebody incorporated them into a song? Well, wonder no more! Thanks to Jenna for bringing this video to my attention.

(The song begins about about the 1:10 mark)

As I was watching this I realized that a lot of these lines aren’t new, they’ve been used at least since ever there was a Romeo and a Juliet…

Romeo: “If I profane with my unworthiest hand, this holy shrine, the gentle sin is this: My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand to smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss”

Juliet: Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much, which mannerly devotion shows in this; for saints have hands that pilgrims’ hands do touch, and palm to palm is holy palmers’ kiss”

Romeo: Have not saints lips, and holy palmers too?”

Juliet: “Ay, pilgrim, lips that they must use in prayer”

Romeo: “O, then, dear saint, let lips do what hands do; they pray, grant thou, lest faith turn to despair”

Juliet: “Saints do not move, though grant for prayers’ sake”

Romeo: “Then move not, while my prayer’s effect I take.Thus from my lips, by yours, my sin is purged…”
