The Lyrics

The mullah looked at me and he cracked
Said, "We won’t sign a thing
Without our money back
Now there’ll be no treaty with Iran
Unless you acquiesce
And lift the sanctions ban"

We just gotta get a payment to you
Hold on, hold on
Four hundred million or lives will be through
Hold on, hold on

He told me they’re in a hurry
But on our side of things
There are many folks who worry
Our Justice Department won’t approve
They say a payment in cash
Would surely be a bad move

We just gotta put the money in crates
Hold on, hold on
Four hundred million that no one can trace
Hold on, hold on

We found Swiss Francs and Euros
An unmarked cargo plane
That is all ready to go
Well, we’re trying to transport this sum
And, have no one think that
Now we’ve paid a ransom

We just gotta make the transfer at night
Hold on, hold on
Before hostages can leave on their flight
Hold on, hold on

We just gotta state our message anew
Hold on, hold on
Claims of ransom to Iran are not true
Hold on, hold on

Thanks Lucy! to be honest I haven't really thought about that parody in a while and didn't consider it one of my better works but if you enjoyed it that's what's important also considering the top-notch quality of your writing so far the compliment really means a lot coming from you! thanks again and keep up the good work! :)
