The Lyrics

a little tribute to the past history and present opinions on one of the 7 Ancient Wonders Of The World, The Great Wall of China.
Verse 1: Today is gonna be the day
That we’re gonna keep those Mongols out
By now we should’ve somehow
Begin to see the Great Wall sprout
I don’t believe that anybody
Could climb over this big Great Wall now
Limestone built to protect my throne
To ensure the Mings will survive
I said they won’t touch us again
And now the whole empire thrives
I don’t believe that anybody
Dares to challenge us for our own lives

Hook: I know these bricks that my slaves lift are heavy
It’s stronger than a man, a bridge, or levee
There are many men that I
Would like to never see
And I do know how

Chorus: Because maybe
This wall will be the one that saves me
Cuz after all
It’s my Chinese wall

Verse 2: Those years were really filled with fears
But all the battling has died down
By now our General Tso
Is food known as Chinese chow
I don’t believe that anybody
Fears the Great Wall now, no not at all

Hook: Now all the rocks and all the blocks are waning
But we decide this wall is worth maintaining
The are many tourist that
Would like to go and see
What the Great Wall’s like

Chorus: But it’s strangely
The purpose of the wall is changing
Don’t keep them out
It brings them to town

Chorus: And it’s crazy (and it’s crazy)
Just thinkin’ that this wall did save Ming
And at high noon
See it from the moon
Outro: And it’s crazy (and it’s crazy)
Just thinkin’ that this wall did save Ming (save Ming)
Just thinkin’ that this wall did save Ming (save Ming)
Just thinkin’ that this wall did save Ming (save Ming)

I seriously dug this one. Great history lesson.

That's what I was going to say!

I'd say that that Wall overshadows them all, but it came long after and was/is not one of the seven ancient wonders:

Actually it is, a new list was created in 2007 and the Great Wall of China is on it. It's in the 7 New Wonders of the World. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Seven_Wonders_of_the_World

Very interesting...so you're saying that the Chinese DIDN'T build the wall to be a giant tourist attraction? Huh, who knew? Pacing was a little off in some places, but otherwise nice work.

(SOTM) The mere fact you can see the wall from space is trippy to me. Roger Waters is probably jealous. I can see him visiting China and shouting "TEAR DOWN THE WALL!"

(SOTM) All in all it's just another brick in the wall! :-) 555!

I thought this was really good, another brick in the wall of your parody collection. Not the funniest parody of the month, but lots of good information and very well written.

(SOTM) Some of the lines here were a bit awkward to read, but otherwise this was a solid parody, if a little light on lulz. 555 bricks for you!
