The Lyrics

Hard times - ISIS in the city
Prospects of the town look downright s*tty
Those guys - they will show no pity
Will not leave alive a creature in the city

All around, people looking quite dead
Lying on the sidewalk, everyone do lack head...

ISIS reign, it's a different world
Going out - it's no-no, girl!
If you're Shi'ite, you will lose your head
soldier boys are shot to dead

Those guys, they won't give any pity
Now the life, it is downright sh*tty
It's the ISIS, in the city
It's the ISIS, in the city

Dead town, evening in the city
Everyone is killed and it won't look pretty
Blood runs, it's gory and it's gritty
Corpses lie in every corner of the city
Christians are made to pay the poll tax
Atheists and Buddhists - they are killed just like nix-nax

ISIS reign, it's a different world
Despot reign will soon unfurl
If you're Jew, it's boom - headshot!
Life will be just blood and snot

Those guys, they won't give any pity
Now the life, it is downright sh*tty
It's the ISIS, in the city
It's the ISIS, in the city

Hard times - ISIS in the city
Prospects of the town look downright s*tty
Those guys - they will show no pity
Will not leave alive a creature in the city

All around, people looking quite dead
Lying on the sidewalk, everyone do lack head...

ISIS reign, it's a different world
Going out - it's no-no, girl!
If you're Shi'ite, you will lose your head
soldier boys are shot to dead

Those guys, they won't give any pity
Now the life, it is downright sh*tty
It's the ISIS, in the city
It's the ISIS, in the city

Sad but true. This was very well written, could sing along to this one - for those who remember this Spoonful classic.

I remember the original. Hard-driving beat. Perfect for your lyrics. Someone ought to record this. Is Finland the objective of any substantial Muslim immigration?

So far Islamic immigration has not been a problem as it has been in Sweden and Norway, but I won't hold my breath. Anyway, those ISIS guys are worse than Mongols - they want to just kill, rape and loot while the Mongols wanted to reign and put up an orderly state. For Mongols, violence was just means; for ISIS, it is the purpose in itself.
