The Lyrics

What with three wars going on in three neighboring Muslim countries, Yusuf Salaam needed to "update" his song "Peace Train" ..... which, BTW, will be featured in his upcoming album, "Blasphemer and The Firepit"
Now I've been happy lately; thinking of the end times to come
And I believe it could be; Allah's justice will be done
Now I've been smiling lately; dreaming of how jihad has won
And I believe it could be; Jewish plot will be undone

But out on edge of cowardice; there sits the peace train
Oh, peace train leave this country; retake our home again
Now I've been smiling lately; thinking about reckoning to come
And I believe it could be; Yom al Diin* has begun

Oh peace train exploding louder
Derail the peace train
(Allah, Allah, Allahu Akbar)
Take out the peace train
Yes, peace train slow exploder
Everybody run from the peace train!!
(Allah, Allah, Allahu Akbar)
Beware the peace train

Get your daggers ready; come bring your AK's too
Reckoning's getting nearer; it soon will strike the Jews
Come enjoin the Christians; time to expel them too
Mahdi's time draws nearer; he soon will call on you

Oh peace train, exploding louder
Blow up the peace train
(Allah, Allah, Allahu Akbar)
Take out the peace train

Now I've been crying lately; thinking of ummah as it is
Why must we keep debating; with thieving Zionists
Cause out near the death of honor; there sits the peace train
Peace train leave this country; expel the Jews again

*(Yom al Diin -- Day of Judgment; literally "Day of The Faith"

I love stuff like this, that has a sense of inevitability about it - makes me wonder how no one thought of it before. Great job.

No one does it better than you CML when it comes to parodies dealing with Islam- so high 555!!! CP wrongly asserts, however, that no one has thought of this idea before... not true as I have done many parodies about the Islamists and their beliefs, yet not to your depth, esp. with their ideologies and religion. I do better using milspeak and am on the IDF side anyway as a right-winger. Too bad GWB isn't President still... would be amusing to see him get America into yet another conflict. I also wonder WHY the US doesn't take the old mothballed battleships and upgrade them again with missile systems and/or sell them to Israel? The 16" firepower alone would be great in the Med for pounding Syrian and Pali targets inland! I just got up 10 am PST and read on AOL that the truce is already messed up, so I gotta go turn on CNN (Communist News Network) to find out what's going on (FOX is TOO REP and unbalanced). Love Wolf in Israel, esp. when he went down the tunnel network and when he hosts Israeli reps. CML, any chance of you doing something concerning the IDF or Israel as I am doing??? Would love to read any work you do on them :)

Oh, this has been done before, sort of. Just search original performers on this site under "Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens)" and you'll find a piece comparing the Peace Train to a transport for the Nazi death camps... which will make us infidels PERMANENTLY peaceful.

Yeah, my bad....some guy named "Sarcastic Paranoid" did it a few years ago....his was pretty good; I'd bump it but he didn't allow comments. Still, well done.

Well, DANG! Claude and especially you, Rob -- Thanks for the kind remarks. A little positive feedback generally helps the 'ol Muse get active again. I myself had actually thought of this a couple of years ago, and had posted an inferior version on another website. And then this became really relevant in the past few months, so I took the song out of mothballs and buffed out a few repetitive and/or poorly paced lines and ... Voila

Nicely constructed parody of the "Religion of Peace". Actually, doesn't "salam" also mean "submission"? Peace where no one is free to disagree. All bow to one dictator. The peace train has long since been derailed. Don't think it will ever get back on track.

Since you asked, Patrick, I'll get a little technical her -- the three consonant root "s-l-m" generates words related to peace. "Silm" is your run of the mill peace. "Salaam" is an Arabic intensive form for "silm" which means the "ultimate peace" which comes from believing in Islam .... "Islam" is a Arabic word form that technically means "creating the conditions for silm -- How? by "submisssion" (Islam) to the will of Allah as revealed to Mohammed, of course
