It's a lovely day in BallaratI'm kicking back, thinking of youI hear that you've been poorlyI am sorry that you're feeling blueI know what it's like when you feel a little shittyYou just want to curl up and have an itty-bitty doona dayBut a lot of people here really miss you, GeorgieThey really think you ought to just get on a plane(Just get on a plane)We all just want you to...Come home, Cardinal PellI know you're not feeling wellAnd being crook ain't much funEven so, we think you shouldCome home, Cardinal PellCome down from your citadelIt's just the right thing to doWe have a right to know what you knewCouldn't you see what was under your nose, GeorgieBack in '73 when you were living with Gerry?Is it true that you knew but you chose to ignoreOr did you actively try to keep it buried?And years later, when survivorsDespite their shame and their fearStood up to tell their storiesYou spent year after yearWorking hard to protect the church's assetsI mean, with all due respect, dudeI think you're scum!And I reckon you should...Come home, Cardinal Pell(Cardinal Pell)I know you're not feeling wellPerhaps you just need some sunIt's lovely here, you shouldCome home, you pompous buffoon(Pompous buffoon)And I suggest do it soonI hear the tolling of the bellAnd it has a Pellian knellI want to be transparent here, George:I'm not the greatest fan of your religionAnd I personally believe that thoseWho cover up abuse should go to prison

But your ethical hypocrisyYour intellectual vacuityAnd your arrogance don't bother me as muchAs the fact that you have turned out to be suchA goddamn cowardYou're a coward, Georgie(You're a coward, George)Come and face the music, Georgie(Face the music, George)You owe it to the victims, Georgie(You owe it, George)Come and face the music, the musicHallelujah, hallelujahIf the Lord God omnipotent reignethHe would take one look at you and say:(One look at you and say)"Go home, Cardinal PellI've got a nice spot in hellWith your name on it and soI suggest you toughen up and..."Go home, Cardinal PellI'm sure they'll make you feel wel-Come at the pub in BallaratThey just want a beer and a chat"Come home, Cardinal Pell(Cardinal Pell)I know you're scared, Georgie-Poo(Come home)They have a right to know what you knewYour time is running out to atone, GeorgieI think the Lord is calling you home, GeorgiePerhaps he could forgive even youIf you just let them know what you knewOh, Cardinal PellMy lawyer just rang me to tellMe this song could get meIn legal troubleOh well, Cardinal PellIf you don't feel compelledTo come home by a senseOf moral dutyPerhaps you will come home and fricking sue me
