The Lyrics

Muslim, There's no need to feel down - I said
Muslim, cause your walkin around at Ground
Zero where the towers went down –
There's no need / to / feel / it's your fault
Muslim, Would you rather feel blessed- I said
Muslim, GOD has heard your request , I said
Brother, There's a place you can rest and enjoy a game of Foozeball

! ! ! ! !.... They're gonna build a big
They'll have everything that a Muslim enjoys
But don't mix the girls and boys. No eating pig at the YMIA ... YMIA
You can fast with your friends , You can pray on your Rug,
You can give all your wives a HUG

Christian, Lots of Muslims are here / I said
Christian - Just get over your fear when a
Swarthy Guy in a robe with a beard is behind / you / at / the / airport
Christian- We all Love the same God, I said
Christian There’s no need for Jihad, I said
Christian! work it out on the sod . Grab a Ball ! Team up ! Play fair Sport
! ! ! ! !
They're shootin Hoops at the YMIA... No Army troops at the YMIA !
You can play with the Jews, You can challenge the Goys,
You can Rival the Hindu Boys...
Just fun and Games at the YMIA... No calling names at the YMIA!
It's a heavenly place, filled with Brotherly Love,
We’ll have blessings from GOD above

People, time to put down that gun , I said
People- Let's agree we are one and be
Happy- let's meet up for some FUN and forgive all past offenders
People- Here's a Fabulous chance to say NO to Fundamentalist rants that are Hateful- Join your hands for a dance that includes all creeds and genders

! ! ! ! ! W’ell get along at the YMIA . W’ell share a song at the YMIA
We can plan a pot luck, we can all learn to swim, we’ll work out in a Brand new Gym
You’ll love New York at the YMIA, Forget the pork at the YMIA
And when Ramadan comes we can party all night till Everyone feels all right

If you want to perform this as a skit , It works great as "the Village Prophets"- Jesus, Moses, Muhammed, etc. I recommend a short square dance sequence right after the 'creeds and genders "line. This works beautifully to a standard Karaoke track. - GinKing

I can almost visualize a music video myself. The Christians and Jews would love it. Not sure how the Muslims would react. But it is a brilliant idea, not just the video, but some form of peaceful interaction between the religions. If it's the same God, we'll have to find something else to fight over.
