The Lyrics

This is irreverent I know....
Bam, Bam, Bam, Bam, Bam Iran
Bam, Bam, Bam, Bam, Bam Iran

It's Bam Iran!
An EarthQuake Ran!
Through Bam Iran!
Destroyed an ancient city,
making everyone feel pity ,
for Iran!
(Bam, Bam, Bam, Bam, Iran)

Went to Tehran,
Tried to Find Bam.
It isn't on the map so I will walk there if I can,
Bam Iran
(Bam, Bam, Bam, Bam Iran)
Bam Iran
The Mullahs have red faces
as they're asking for donations in Iran
(Bam, Bam, Bam, Bam Iran)

Thirty thousand died
Many others tried
to rescue ninety seven year old women who survived
In Bam, Iran (Bam, Bam, Bam, Bam Iran)
In Bam, Iran
Red Crescent has been trying and the US has been prying in Iran

Bam, Bam, Bam, Bam Kaboom!

Help is needed for those who read this and think it is witty, funny, and a "good job". Imagine a similar parody of 9/11. Think. I cannot ask for anything more.
