The Lyrics

The official vehicle for this year's Somali Grand Prix is the so-called technical. A technical is a pick-up truck with a machine gun or rocket launcher bolted on. Now imagine some teenage Somali suffering from testosterone poisoning but not mazuma to buy a BMW or Mercedes...
Mogadishu ladies sing this song - Allah! Allah!
It's Technical Grand Prix all along - Ins-allah-dey!
Now get yourself a pick-up truck - Allah! Allah!
Technical will surely rock - Ins-allah-dey!

Run the bush at night -
Raid the streets all day
Bolt machine gun on your car
and spray with lead all way!

Hassan's got red Toyota - Allah! Allah!
He bolted on light machine gun - Ins-allah-dey!
Ali runs blue El Camino - Allah! Allah!
He's got Point Fifty as payload - Ins-allah-dey!

Run the bush at night -
Raid the streets all day
Bolt machine gun on your car
and spray with lead all way!

Abdullah has green Pajero - Allah! Allah!
He with RPG will go- Ins-Allah-dey!
But Muhammed, his white Dodge Ram - Allah! Allah!
His AA gun wil go wham-bam! Ins-allah-dey!

Run the bush at night -
Raid the streets all day
Bolt machine gun on your car
and spray with lead all way!

Now Omar fires the starting shot - Allah! Allah!
The cars are fast and race is hot - Ins-allah-dey!
If you can't drive, get on cargo bed - Allah! Allah!
and spray around with steel and lead - Ins-allah-dey!

Run the bush at night -
Raid the streets all day
Bolt machine gun on your car
and spray with lead all way!

DKTOS, but this is a fun parody. Not mentioned: The part where they run into an M1 Abrams & get blown to pieces. They ain't gonna be having a shootin' good time when that happens.

Needs some work on the pacing, but this one really has great potential, and I'm impressed by the writer's grasp of details of the Somali mess.

Wait a second, tonight I just saw an episode of The SImpsons, & Chief Wiggum sang part of the OS, so it all makes sense now! Having said that, the pacing's a bit off, but an otherwise great parody. And, like I said before, there was something not mentioned: The part where they run into an M1 Abrams & get blown to pieces. They ain't gonna be having a shootin' good time when that happens.
