But I was thinking of "St Benedict and the Jet Planes," an ancient folk song about monks and their Taiwanese knockoff tools, later confusingly rewritten by Elton John. A few of the cryptic lines indicate the earlier version, such as "She's-a really keen" which is obviously a reference to the sharp edges maintained by the discipline of the (Italian) Monks.
