The Lyrics

Day Oh, Day Oh
Daylight come and dey all gone home
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day oh
Daylight come and dey all gone home

Dey work all night; bug out Baghram
Daylight come and dey all gone home
Desert dey allies; leave them all alone
Daylight come and dey all gone home

Come Mr Taliban, tally take from Baghram
Daylight come and dey even leave drones
Come Mr Taliban, tally up the MRAPs*
Daylight come and dey even leave drone

Leave six thou-, seven thou-, eight thou- GUNS
Daylight come and dey left all alone
Leave six thou-, seven thou-, eight thou- BOMBS
Daylight come and dey even leave drones

Waste, me see waste, me see waste, me see waste, me see waste
Day light come and dey flee tha airdrome
Waste, me say waste, me say waste, me say waste, me say waste
Twenty years gone, and dey all went home

A beautiful one rotor high fly Blackhawk
Day light come, and allies left alone
Make de ad hoc flying gallows
Day light come and dey all left alone

Leave six score, seven score, eight score TRUCKS
Daylight come and dey even leave drones
Leave six ton, seven ton, eight ton TRUCKS
Daylight come and dey even leave drones

Come Mr Taliban, tally take from Baghram
Daylight come and dey all gone home
Come Mr Taliban, tell me why they gone now
Daylight come and dey wan' go home
*MRAP is a much larger, super armored version of a Humvee. Basically, a response to the IED threat

I'm surprised by this also. My most recent 2 songs are all getting 5's across the board.

Some of my song parodies get 1s to and one of my recent ones from a couple of months ago got a comment from Snowkarl saying this: 'What is this? What is this even about? what is this? isnt it a lot to ask potential viewers to endure constantly whining about being a victim because people dont like your uploads. when you can stop making content like this and do something else at any time.' The thing is I didn't even ask for Snowkarl's opinion nor do I know anything about this man, so I googled Snowkarl...yeah, there's a Snowkarl who got banned from a Darksiedphil discussion page on reddit so what beef did he have with my parody? And it wasn't a harmful parody either, it was just an Aykroyd parody. An Aykroyd themed parody. Look I cannot help if it i'm i'm a simp for Dan Aykroyd, I don't get what he meant by 'viewers' either. Wouldn't it have made more sense if he said 'readers'? I am just saying I wouldn't be surpised if this was the same guy spamming the 1's.
