MOLVANIA DISQUALIFIED FROM
EUROVISION... again

Zladko ("ZLAD!") Vladcik’s hopes of representing his country on the world stage have once again been dashed.

The Molvanian heart-throb was informed at the last moment by contest officials that his entry had been withdrawn.

"Satanism has no place at Eurovision", was the terse one-line statement issued by the
Kiev press office.

Clearly-devastated, "ZLAD!" insists his song "I Am The Anti-Pope" is not an attack on Christianity  - rather, a light-hearted ballad recounting the short reign of little-known Beelzebub the First – the only Vicar of Christ to have been crucified at the stake.

"In Molvania, this is one of our most loved children’s stories", claimed Zlad!, speaking backwards through a hooded translator.

However, in good news for both him and his hundreds of fans, the singer-songwriter’s record company, "SZPINN", yesterday announced that despite the setback, "I Am The Anti-Pope" will be released in the near future.

Last year, Zlad! had a surprise hit on his hands with the futuristic techno track, "Elektronik – Supersonik", which was also controversially disqualified from Eurovision.

Some reports indicate that "I Am The Anti-Pope" will be accompanied by a blood-chilling video-clip, although the shooting - which was to have commenced last Saturday in the Molvanian capital of Lutenblag - had to be postponed due to the local production crew being double-booked for a wedding.


LYRICS

"I AM THE ANTI-POPE"

The conclave entered into the room.
Inside of it they sat, these cardinals of doom.
Their votes was unanimous.
The horror instantaneous.
Observe! Smoke from chimney - not white but red!
They say it was the day that God bled.
Nuns weeped, holy men cursed
As they looked up onto the balcony and saw…
Beelzebub the First!

I am the Anti-Pope.
I am the Anti-Pope.
Like a lion kills an antelope.
Like a hammer hits a cantaloupe.
I am the Anti-Pope.

Two thousand years ago
Jesus said to his travelling show,
"No need for push. Do need for jostle.
Peter, you is my number one apostle.
Your name is mean rock - on you I build church.
No longer for successor I have need for to search."
But by Judas this words was overheard
And with mighty Satan he soon conferred,
"Oh Prince of darkness, be not in hesitation.
The head of God’s Church needs decapitation!"

I am the Anti-Pope.
I am the Anti-Pope.
Like a lion kills an antelope.
Like a hammer hits a cantaloupe.
I am the Anti-Pope.

"Hey, Grim Reaper, lend me your sickle.
This world needs some culling, blood needs to trickle!"
Prepare for the end - the Apocalypse approaches.
It’s feast time for maggots, worms and cockroaches.
But here comes White Horseman - Defender of God,
Exposing to everyone his powerful rod!
"I alone will fight for Jesus Christ
With sword so sharp I can make cheeses sliced."
He laughs to the Devil, he takes aim at Death
And he strikes down the enemy who takes one last breath.
But too early the victor makes his victory roar.
He may win this battle, but he not win the war.
For, yes, Beelzebub the First is set fire to then crucifixxed.
But next Anti-Pope is Zladko the 666th .

Yes, I am the Anti-Pope.
Like a lion kills an antelope.
Like a hammer hits a cantaloupe.
Like a neck in a hanging rope.
Like a germ in a microscope.
Like a witch reads a horoscope.
Like a cutter stabs an envelope.
I am the Anti-Pope.
There is no longer hope.
Long live Molvania!
