The Lyrics

The end is close at hand; our doom approacheth rapidly
There's war galore, and more and more, just look at your TV
At present rate -- don't know the date --- but earth will end soon, see?
Heed me.... Heed me...
Wouldn't peace be brotherly?

All I want is for peace somewhere
'fghanistan, Middle East, don't care
Just get us out of there
Oh, wouldn't it be brotherly?

Lots of bombs making lots of dead
Soldiers, sailors, civilians bled
Just get this through your head:
That peace would be so brotherly!

Oh... no!... suicide bomber dies to kill a child or two
Sev - en - ty - two virgins WON'T --
-- Be waiting in Hell for you!

Call a ban on the Taliban
Russia, Georgia, work out a plan
Surrender nukes, Iran
Oh, wouldn't it be brotherly?

Brotherly... loverly
Brotherly... dove-erly

Israel, Egypt once made a pact:
Neither, either would e'er attack
Extend it to Iraq
Oh, wouldn't it be brotherly?

If we *keep* kill-ing at this rate
Human race will have sealed its fate
I hope it's not too late
For peace; 'twould be so brotherly

Dear... Lord..., everywhere people fighting in the --
--- Name of God
Did-n't You once tell us all
That murder had been outlawed?

Just one nuke smuggled evilly
Bang! -- there goes all humanity
The end of you and me
If we cannot be brotherly

Dove-erly... brotherly
Loverly... brotherly

Brotherly and sisterly peace, joy, and love to all. © 2008 Tommy Turtle. All rights reserved. E-mail:

Can't understand why so few votes for this wonderful seasonal fugue in 5 major!? This was great!

Replace funny with intention-and you get my fives. I've written a number of parodies to this extent that I just didn't feel were good enough to release, I agree with you on this 100%

TJC, thanks... guess people have better things to do right now than read parodies... esp. if not "funny". But I'm with BAD -- we can use our parody superpowers for good as well as for humor. Thanks, TJ!

Below Average Dave: See above. Thanks, friend, and the happiest of holidays to you.
