The Lyrics

He will be sorely missed.....NOT !!
Yes sir, the man is dead
The terrorists have lost their head
Hey, Yasser Arafat is dead
Wake up, you sleepyhead
Rub your eyes, get out of bed
Hey, Yasser Arafat is dead
He's gone where embezzlers go
Below, below, below
Yes sir, he siphoned foreign aid
Much to his wife gave
Suha, the lucky gal
She lived high, we lived low
Tell Iblis that Arafat is dead

As mayor of all Paris city
In the capital of all of France
I welcome you most régalment
But we've got to verify it légalment
To see, to see
If he, if he
Is morally, ethically
Spiritually, physically
Positively, absolutely
Undeniably and reliably dead

As coroner, my haverim,
I thoroughly examined him
And he's not only rumored dead
He's really, beyond humor, dead
Then this is a day of new beginning
For all Isrealis, and Palestinians
For many
Yes, let the solemn news be spread
The evil old man at last is dead

(repeat first verse)
Iblis is the chief devil in Islam."haverim" means "friends" in Hebrew (if that's the correct spelling).

The corrupt cockroach may be gone, but the Palestinian Authority apparently can't reform. Thousand of starving Palestinians, and the PA authorizes millions to keep Yasser's fat, ugly wife living in luxury in Paris. Awfully hard to have any sympathy for this "cause."

Great parody...and haverim is a pretty good spelling. It's that gutteral 'h' sound, but kh and ch always look wrong. I liked the France part.

A joke that I've heard several times in recent days: In one of their rare meetings, Yasser Arafat boasted to Ariel Sharon that he, Arafat, would die on a major Jewish holiday. To Arafat's great surprise, Sharon agreed. "Any day you die will be a major Jewish holiday!" Anyway, 555s, and good riddance!
