Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Apostates dying, no chance of repentence
Naming a teddy requiring death sentence
Stoning of witches and burning of flags
These are a few of my fav'rite jihads

Knowledge comes only from Koranic scholars
Mullahs and Imams and from Ayatollahs
They say that women may not drive in cars
That is one of my most fav'rite fatwas

Ranting on TV as though I've got rabies
Randomly fi-ring rockets at Israelis
What I am saying is I'm the baddest
Radical fundamental Islamist

When the Pope speaks
When the cartoons
Make Islam look bad
I think about blowing them all into bits
And having a real...

Forcing all dissenting voices: be silent
Rioting 'cause the Pope said Islam's violent
Taking the Tube with C4 round my 'nads
These are a few of my fav'rite jihads

Cartoons of prophets cause us to be shaken
So we ban imports of, ha! Danish bacon
All sense of irony missing, because
That is just one of my fav'rite fatwas

Death to Americans from The Great Satan
Gay men and anyone caught masturbatin'
Death to all people who might disagree
Finally my aim is... death to ME

When the gun fires
when the bomb blows
When it all goes... well
I'll try to take with me those people I hate
As I blow myself
To hell

Delightfully singable, Phil, and readily reaimable at fundamentalists of any monotheistic stripe.

Maybe I should change my name before commenting on this wonderful parody. "Death to Myself". Nothing could sum up the jihadist metality better than that.

This parody is da bomb!

Julie Andrews in a burqa...the Von Trapp kids burning effigies in the town square...too many warped images conjured up by this brilliantly subversive parody. Bravo, Phil. 555

IED components $129.95, Second hand used car $450.00, blowing yourself up with a four minute fuse miscalulated to four seconds and finding out that the 72 virgins are all gay men - PRICLESS! Well done Phil! You captured the radical fundamentalistic ideology perfectly.

"Rioting 'cause the Pope said Islam's violent" struck me as the best of many good lines. Careful, Phil, or you might get on their ist.

:-) Thanks everyone who agreed: does this mean you'll all end up on the same list as me?

Kristof - Julie Andrews in a burqa? Now there's a mental image to conjure with... code "j8u"... only one off "i8u" which would have been absolutely perfect for this one

Phil - I've been on their list, welcome to the club. I have a parody called Hezbollah to OS "Shambala" by 3 dog night. It regularly gets hate mail. One comment said "You are so racist - I do not wish to dirt my tongue to speaking to you." I think the admins blow these hate comments off because it is no longer there but every once in a while another will pop up. I wish they'd have left them there. They were way funnier than the parody. I almost choked on a piece of cake when I was reading the dirt/tongue comment.

I had a "You are so racist" comment on my "Don't let's be beastly to the Muslims" parody.. ignoring that it's nothing to do with race, it's religion I have a problem with, I feel that it would be more prejudiced of me to not lampoon Islam, given that I frequently take the piss out of most of the others.

I don't think I've done one about Sikhism, though.. probably because I know nothing about Sikhism, well, nothing funny anyway. But you know what they say: sikh and ye shall find...

There is a sect or derivative of Islam called Baha'i. It is so peaceful and benevolent that even the fundamentalist Christian cult watchers who keep tabs on the Moonies, Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses can't find anything bad to say about them, other than the fact that the Baha'i's just don't know the Carpenter from Nazareth as well as they do. The Iranian government destroyed the Baha'i prophet's home and killed most of his followers who were still in the country. In the name of "Allah the Merciful".
