The Cardinal Rules

I have the urge I just can’t quell it
to study hard, become a prelate
I could learn the laws of God
I’ve seen priests it can’t be hard

Though if I were to be a prelate
I suppose I must be celibate
that’s not so different from my dating life
and for many years the priests had wives
