The Lyrics

With Gadhafi in hiding, I thought I would bring out some of the weirder things about the "Madman of the Middle East" that has been reported over the years- from his virgin female bodyguards (Green Nuns) to his extravagant clothing, tent-living, and claimed sexual deviancy of golden showers and Gay porn discovered in his residence!!! What better way than the Monty Python Lumberjack Song!!!
I’m a maniac, and I’m okay
I hide at night and I rant all day
He’s a maniac, and he’s okay
He hides at night and he rants all day
I cut down Rebs. I remain tough.
On TV I tell my story
I myself am African
To foreign dignitaries
He cuts down Rebs. He remains tough.
On TV he tells his story
He himself is African
To foreign dignitaries
He’s a maniac, and he’s okay
He hides at night and he rants all day
I cut down Rebs. I live in tents.
I like getting golden showers
I wear colorful clothing
Have female bodyguards!
He cuts down Rebs. He lives in tents.
He likes getting golden showers?!
He wears colorful clothing
Has female bodyguards?!
He’s a maniac, and he’s okay
He hides at night and he rants all day
I cut down Rebs. I watch Gay porn.
My harem is so nice
I also collect photos
Of Condoleezza Rice!
He cuts down Rebs. He watches Gay porn,
His harem is so nice?!
What's this? Muammar is crazy?! Oh, My!
And I thought he was a Strongman! Loser!
He’s a maniac, and he’s okay
He hides at night and he rants all day
He’s a maniac, and he’s okaaaaay
He hides at night and he rants all day

Oh my god.... how perfectly does the subject matter of this parody fit the original song? I laughed the whole way through this. I can even see this being re-enacted by Gaddafi and his chums, Monty Python-stylee, as I read it. Possibly my favourite one today - please take some 555s for a top job! (And just to top it off, the security code I have to type in to submit this comment is 'NUT' - how great is that?)

This one matches the spirit of the original so well. I could visualize it as a video. "Golden Showers" sounds sort of icky to me. Security code for this comment is "EEW".

ROTFLMAO! Perhaps I should write "Muammar Bites the Dust"?

That was something completely different.

This is a good parody but I question some of the allegations here. Ronnie Reagan referred to him as the Mad DOG of the Middle East, not Mad Man. That jive about the gay porn - that sounds a little outrageous. Supposedly porn was found in Osama bin Laden's lair. Doesn't something sound a little contrived here? Calculated, like propaganda? Yes, Gadhafi is eccentric, dangerous and ruthless but REALLY? That stuff about golden showers - come ON. Are they trying to pull our legs? I know the female bodyguards are a fact. Condi Rice in a photo album? She's butt-ugly. Yick!

It was the media that started to call him the "Madman of the Middle East" during the current crisis and Gay porn WAS found at his compound (not any soldiers', maybe one of his son's) along with the Golden Mermaid furniture and Condi photo album (which has been confirmed as his- apparently he had an obsession with her). It is also known that he raped some of his female bodyguards, the Green Nuns and performed bizarre sexual acts, hiring African dancers and whores to entertain him, including the alleged golden showers. He has claimed to be African too and dressed in outrageous colorful Skittles outfits for a Colonel!!! He was and is nuts!!! But he's OK....

Hi Rob. I read what you posted here and I thought maybe some these ideas are true. After all, the media does like to overdo and inflate some aspects in a story. One time NBC created an image of Jesus that didn't fit any historical evidence. Sometimes the media creates romances or other rumors, and I don't mean just the tabloids either. Now that you mention it, maybe one of Muammar's son is gay. I know Condi visited Tripoli when Libya reestablished relations with the USA. Gadhafi's government was not totalitarian but he DOES have an ego bigger than the planet Jupiter and since rape is a crime of controlling, not of passion then I wouldn't put the notion of him raping some bodyguards past him. As for hiring dancers there's plenty of African despots who do that. He certainly dresses in Sgt. Pepper getup sometimes - at least that's more interesting than the ol' suit and tie. As for being "African", Libya is in North Africa. He's Arabic but maybe he has Black African blood too. I have Native American ancestry but I appear to be white. Still, Gadhafi is a bastard, he's the Loony of Libya and he is mercurial but he is dangerous. I was thinking back to 1991 when Bush #1 said that Saddam Hussein was "worse than Hitler". That's why I get skeptical when something outrageous is printed. After all, Elvis sightings happen and at an FYE I saw a DVD that claims that George in 1987 deposited informationthat "proved" that Paul really is dead.
