"Mongolian Idiot"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

I know you must be wondering "Dylan, if you're a fan of Dschinghis Khan, why do you have a parody like this?" Well, I still like Dschinghis Khan and I'm not bashing Mongolia here. Also, this is not meant to offend any Mongolians, because I know the days of Genghis Khan's pillaging are over. This is just the lament of a guy living somewhere in Europe who was likely to get cut down by Genghis Khan's army. Anyways, enjoy the parody.
Don’t wanna be a Mongolian idiot,
Don’t wanna carry destruction through Eurasia.(1)
And can you hear the sounds of their horsemen?
I think they’ve got us outnumbered one to ten.

Welcome to the new declaration
Coming from this Asian nation,
Everyone else is meant to be conquered.
Genghis Khan’s troops kill, rape, & pillage,
Pretty soon, he’s gonna raze my village,
I wish I lived in Yonkers.(2)

Well maybe I’m a foe of Mongolia,
I’m not part of their warlike agenda.
But then we’ll be unsafe in Germania,(3)
Pretty soon, those guys will reach America.

Welcome to the new declaration
Coming from this Asian nation,
Everyone else is meant to be conquered.
Genghis Khan’s troops kill, rape, & pillage,
Pretty soon, he’s gonna raze my village,
I wish I lived in Yonkers.

[guitar solo]

Don’t wanna be a Mongolian idiot,
Their name gets confused with magnolia.
Never liked ol’ Genghis Khan anyhow,
He’s not that dude who sang about Moscow.(4)

Welcome to the new declaration
Coming from this Asian nation,
Everyone else is meant to be conquered.
Genghis Khan’s troops kill, rape, & pillage,
Pretty soon, he’s gonna raze my village,
I wish I lived in Yonkers.
Cultural Notes:

(1)- The combined continents of Europe & Asia.
(2)-City in New York state, 2 miles north of Manhattan.
3-Ancient land in eastern Europe, part of which was Germany.
4-A reference to Dschinghis Khan & their song "Moskau", and how Dschinghis Khan is a different entity from Genghis Khan.

I have to be honest, I don't fully understand the subject matter, at least not to the extent to vote on funny (When I released "Like The Craft", some people who had never seen "The Craft" voted it down a bit because obviously those who haven't seen that movie aren't going to get a song about it) as obviously not being familiar with the subject matter, I didn't really get it. HOWEVER, I did want to comment on the clever pacing. It's oddly paced, but it works, and that always deserves to be commended, and I couldn't see a Green Day parody by a parodist who regularly comments on my work and not at least stop in for a visit. BTW, thanks for the info on the bottom, it helped in this song. Good Job, hope you get lots of votes later.

I hope so, too, because each time I take an extended leave from writing & submitting parodies for this site, no one seems to notice when I return.

I'm going to have to look up this Dschinghis Khan character, and check out his tunes. In the meantime, this was pretty good.

The title of this song is also an outdated synonym for "Down's syndrome patient", and since I have been known to help out neighbors and classmates with that unfortunate birth defect, I object strongly to the whole song, not just the title. Sorry Dylan, but no vote.

I'm sorry if you're offended. This parody was not meant to offend anybody, Mongolian, mentally retarded, or otherwise. It was written for humorous purposes only.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
