The Lyrics

Oh Libya, oh Libya, there’s wacked dreck in Libya,
Libya—Cad Daffy’s crazy.
He’s a guy that folks abhor so,
Yet he’ll bore so even more so.
Libya, oh Libya, the den of terroristas. . .
In Libya, a creepy mad loon.

Oh Cad Daffy is wacky, a wanton loon,
His tight-nit pestilential cadre: goons.
A loutish unwashed knave, a dreadful cartoon;
All should spurn this dog from Libya.


He wears robes, like a girl. On his dome is a squirrel
Or a pre-dreadlocked knot of hair?
Very slimy is he who ordered Lockerbie,
Though Washington told him he ought beware.


Oh Libya, oh Libya, there’s wacked pest in Libya—
Libya, Cad Daffy’s crazy.
When he nuzzles goats for action,
He gets thrilling satisfaction.
Libya, oh Libya, den of hairy-beast stickers;
In Libya, with sheep they’re enthralled.

The dude sits on a throne, but this “monarch”’s ersatz.
For his ewe, takes Viagra—else his rod sure sags,
And when it’s shear day, he has some carpet shags.
Not much urge for dog in Libya.

[ovine ululations]

He’s a bungling buffoon and an African wacko;
He should be snuffed out like all puffs of tobacco.
Yes, he is appalling; supports Hamas and Iran;
He’ll taste what is rimed on the nates of an imam.


Now this gross mammalian’ bewailin’ that no one
In Jersey will let him erect his tent. . .no fun.
He’s more stinky than that which a plumber
Flushes—impurities—with a plunger.

[toilet flushing]

Libya, oh Libya, that den of terroristas,
Oh Libya, its chump so appalls.

He once sent an animal to bomb the fleet;
The airship was ripped, blown to bits by this feat,
But that loathsome bomber soon his maker meets
Post-release by freaks in Britannia.

I said Libya,
The dread Libya.
No tent, Libya,
Get bent, Libya,
Ta ta. . . .

Very imaginative use of Groucho's OS. Nice wordplay. Someone should do a group photo of all these clowns who bear the title World Leaders". Glad there aren't 555 of them.

Well done. This guy has been tamed a bit - of course, not as much as Saddam.
