Tom Lehrer - The Vatican Rag - with intro

It came to my attention today that even other people in the over-40 crowd are unaware of this gem from the 1960s. There's a bit of a long intro to it.

Here Tom Lehrer (also famous for doing a song where he recites the (first 102) elements) lampoons the Catholic Church for trying to modernize its rituals. (The whole altar boy buggering scandal hadn't come to the fore yet.)
