The Lyrics

I've received a few requests to resurrect a parody I wrote about Osama bin Laden back in September, 2001. It's hard to say why.

In reviewing the song, however, I realized that it needed some revising. That is because, compared to a decade ago, bin Laden is now significantly more dead.

So here's the rewrite. And here's Robert Lund's recording of the rewrite.

Because he ran to Pakistan where bad guys don't exist
It seemed that he'd forever lead the Fed's Most Fugly list
Until the news our Navy dudes had shot his ass on sight
That tastes so sweet, let's please repeat it every Sunday night!

Superpowers go ballistic, execute bin Laden!
Once just ain't enough to hear Obama say we got 'im!
Dredge him up, re-shoot him, and re-sink him to the bottom!
Superpowers go ballistic, re-destroy bin Laden!

al Qaida Qeeda Qaeda, al Qaida, die!
al Qaida Qeeda Qaeda, al Qaida, die!

There's not a chance I'll miss his rants or beard like ZZ Top
But still I wish the Sunday celebrations wouldn't stop
I'd join the cheer each week to hear his body's been re-dumped
Especially if it means the news will preempt Donald Trump!

Superpowers go ballistic, execute Osama!
Drag his soggy butt from Peshawar to Yokohama!
Late-night breaking news is now my favorite Sunday drama!
Superpowers go ballistic, re-rub out Osama!

Superpowers go ballistic, execute Osama!

A tough tune to work with. Very well done. Drag him from Peshawar to Yokohama. Funny.

I would like to belatedly thank Patrick and Mark for their comments, and bin Laden for dying.
