The Lyrics

On the first day of Jihad my imam gave to me
One rusty sabre to wave

On the second day of Jihad my imam gave to me
Two Talibanis
And one rusty sabre to wave

On the third day of Jihad my imam gave to me
Three mullahs howling
Two Talibanis
And one rusty sabre to wave

On the fourth day of Jihad my imam gave to me
Four swords be-heading
Three mullahs howling
Two Talibanis
And one rusty sabre to wave

On the fifth day of Jihad my imam gave to me
Five car bombs
Four swords be-heading
Three mullahs howling
Two Talibanis
And one rusty sabre to wave

On the sixth day of Jihad my imam gave to me
Six sticks of Semtex
Five car bombs
Four swords be-heading
Three mullahs howling
Two Talibanis
And one rusty sabre to wave

On the seventh day of Jihad my imam gave to me
Seven assault rifles
Six sticks of Semtex
Five car bombs
Four swords be-heading
Three mullahs howling
Two Talibanis
And one rusty sabre to wave

On the eighth day of Jihad my imam gave to me
Eight headless heathens
Seven assault rifles
Six sticks of Semtex
Five car bombs
Four swords be-heading
Three mullahs howling
Two Talibanis
And one rusty sabre to wave

On the ninth day of Jihad my imam gave to me
Nine flags a-burning
Eight headless heathens
Seven assault rifles
Six sticks of Semtex
Five car bombs
Four swords be-heading
Three mullahs howling
Two Talibanis
And one rusty sabre to wave

On the tenth day of Jihad my imam gave to me
Ten maids in burqa
Nine flags a-burning
Eight headless heathens
Seven assault rifles
Six sticks of Semtex
Five car bombs
Four swords be-heading
Three mullahs howling
Two Talibanis
And one rusty sabre to wave

On the elevenths day of Jihad my imam gave to me
Eleven suicide bombers
Ten maids in burqa
Nine flags a-burning
Eight headless heathens
Seven assault rifles
Six sticks of Semtex
Five car bombs
Four swords be-heading
Three mullahs howling
Two Talibanis
And one rusty sabre to wave

On the twelfth day of Jihad my imam gave to me
Twelve mujahedin
Eleven suicide bombers
Ten maids in burqa
Nine flags a-burning
Eight headless heathens
Seven assault rifles
Six sticks of Semtex
Five car bombs
Four swords be-heading
Three mullahs howling
Two Talibanis
And one rusty sabre to wave

This very title had crossed my mind, Susannah, but I never got around to doing it. You're a little off on the lyrics of Days 4& 3 which are very short and rapid "Four calling birds, Three French hens" ... Personally, I would fix that with -- Four howling mobs, Three blind sheikhs, Two Taliban

Creative stuff. I enjoyed this. I'm not a perfectionist myself when it comes to syllable count but the 'five car bombs' , reduced from four to three, really does jar against the IS, as it such a key line in the melody, so I think a notch down for pacing is fair.
