The Lyrics

I'll bet I'm not the only one who's kind of glad that a country like Iran with such a well-balanced man(iac) at the helm hasn't got a nuclear capability...
When Iran gets an a-bomb
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Will make the world
A not much safer place
Because he's said, he can see it:
Make Islamic republic
O'er the whole world's face

When Iran gets an A-bomb
Spreading tyranny
But we don't need Shari'a hi'a
He'll blow up all of Israel
It's Shi'a insanity
But he said that's the way
It's Teheranny

When Iran gets an A-bomb
From that Iranium-235
I want to get away
But where, where on Earth
Where on earth can I go?

When Iran gets an A-bomb
The Yanks'll blow a hole
Right where Teheran used to be
And though I don't take him as a fool:
A-madman-jihad'll know
He may start World War Three

Yes when Iran gets an A-bomb
When ol' Armageddinejad
He's scary, scary! SCARY!
Scared of Iran
When Iran gets an A-bomb

Not laugh out loud funny but some very good puns including "Teheranny", "A-madman-jihad'll know" and "Armageddinejad".

...although technically, the guy who would be giving the nuclear launch order would be Khameni, the Iranian dictator for whom Ahmadinejad is the front man. Ahmadinejad makes all the noise and gets all the press, but Khameni still has all the real power.

As big Randy often says...."That was the bomb dude!" or words to that effect. Explosive have Philled us all with fear. Straight fives.

Jack - didn't think I could make this sort of subject hilarious (though if you don't laugh...), but couldn't resist the puns. I was rather pleased with "Iranium", too
True - ain't that even scarier: the guy with his finger on the button is one who believes a non-existant sky-fairy is telling him what he should be doing
Mason - just hoping that it doesn't go with a bang. So to speak.
t'other Jack, Rick, PP & JJ - thanks :-)

"Where on earth can I go?"

Good Question---It's scary because it's true. . .Hopefully space travel will have further developed by then. . .Iran having that kinda power is scary. . .and I don't want to be around when it happens. . .

"He may start World War Three" is why I didn't really find this song funny, but I still gave it top marks because to me, when a song is about a serious topic it should be graded on quality of writing, not comedy as parody does not HAVE to be funny. . .just usually is--I think WW3 may already be in progress. . .we just don't know it. . .

Good job. ("Terheranny"...profound!) I was thinking along these same lines here last year(shameless self promotion):
