Sri Lankan church service prints Tupac rap lyrics by accident

Attendees at a recent Sri Lankan Christmas carol service may have had a raunchier sing-a-long than they intended.

A booklet distributed at the Dec. 11 “Joy to the World 2016” event accidentally included Tupac’s “Hail Mary” instead of the traditional Christian prayer, according to CNN — and the rapper’s version is definitely not suitable for a church gathering.

The printed lyrics include lines such as “Revenge is like the sweetest joy next to gettin’ p—-” and “I’ll be down in the dark/Thuggin’ eternal through my heart,” as well as references to violence.

“A lot of people were in shock as whether it was a joke or someone would actually rap the song,” event attendee Andrew Choksy told CNN. “A few of the older ladies in front of us could not stop looking at the printed booklet.
Father Da Silva from the Archdiocese of Colombo in Sri Lanka, which helped organize the event, apologized for the mix-up.

Da Silva told CNN that the printer had been a “young boy” who had downloaded the wrong version of the song.

“We are very sorry to say that this happened,” he said.
