From the author:
This is a german folk song from the 16th century. My singing sucks, I still have to rehearse the accompaniment I developed on the guitar. Singing will be next. Maybe I’ll come up with a better version soon.

Comment from poster:
You have to see that the song can be traced back to a time when Martin Luther and the prtestants seceded from the roman catholoc church wich marked the beginning of 100 Years or wars in Europe called the “religious wars”. I believe it was fashionable to ridicule priests in those days.
