The Lyrics

"Sam Bacile", the man identified as the producer of the "Innocence of Muslims" film that incited the recent embassy attacks in Egypt and Libya, is a mysterious character who most likely isn't who he claimed to be. He reportedly is actually an Egyptian Coptic Christian and former bank fraudster living in California. What's more, he lied to the actors who appeared in the film, telling them it was about ancient Egyptians and giving them a phony script, which was then overdubbed with new speaking parts that turned it into a Mohammed-bashing film.
I told the press I was a Jew, but that was a lie
I said I was Israeli too, but that was a lie
I'm actually Egyptian; don't wanna die
I'm scared that if I go near Muslim guys, I'll hang out to dry

I gave the actors all a script, but it was lie
'Cause they never knew it was about that Prophet guy
Now they're spitting mad, I don't know why
Because I was sly, because I was sly, and I told a lie

I won't share my real name, because I'm too shy
It's not 'cause I'm ashamed, I just am too shy
'Cause if you diss Mohammed, you could die
I don't wanna die, I don't wanna die, that's why I'm so shy

Ambassador is dead and my film is why
Guess I messed with people's heads, yeah that might be why
They took it out on him, the poor poor guy
And my film is why, ambassador died, yeah my film is why

Mohammed liked 'em young, yeah I hate that guy
He did men up the bung, oh I hate that guy
I heard he talked to donkeys, I don't know why
But I hate that guy, yeah I hate that guy, I so hate that guy

And now I'm on the run, and that is no lie
I'm hiding from the sun, and that is no lie
A target's on my head, and I know why
'Cause I slammed that guy, Mohammed, now I, hope I won't die
'Cause I slammed that guy, Mohammed, now I, hope I won't die

Oh my days... I didn't know about this *shocked face.* Very funny parody though, in that dark-humour stylee that makes you think - "I probably shouldn't be laughing at this... but I am." I'm rating this production 555 :)

Afraid I cannot give you 5s on pacing or overall as it did not follow the OS well, and there was a lot more of the song that you just left off. But the humor wasn't bad, in a dark sort of way, as Wendy said.
