"Aussie boys sing for Pope"

"Aussie boys sing for Pope"

A young Australian choir belted out the verses of Oasis hit Wonderwall outside Rome's Gemelli hospital today to wish ailing Pope John Paul II a quick recovery.

The group was to attend the Pope's weekly general audience today but when they learned of the 84-year-old Pope's sudden illness and the cancellation of the audience at St Peter's, they decided to go to the Gemelli to pay their respects with a performance.

Though they got no closer than the front gate, they formed a semi-circle in their blue jackets and began singing the British band's anthem.

It contains the chorus: "Because maybe, you're gonna be the one who saves me, and after all, you're my wonderwall".
