Original Song Title:
"Leaving Beirut" (MP3)
Parody Song Title:
"Leaving for the Bathroom"
Parody Written by:
Leaving For The Bathroom
(Based on the crappy live version of "Leaving Beirut")
The scene: Cartoon images show a rock star on stage, singing a meandering, plodding new song. Dialogue bubbles show the audience saying: "Oh no. Not this garbage." "I'm going out for a smoke." "Yeah, I'm going to the bathroom. Holy crap, look at the line out there!"
When I was 17 and I first heard "The Wall," I had to go and get
Every Pink Floyd album at the mall
Now on your latest tour, you did "Dark Side of the Moon"
The glory of when you were the tops
And really had your writing chops
But first we had to sit through the new song "Leaving Beirut,"
I'd have to say it was a bigger bomb
Than the one we dropped on Hiroshima
You were an Englishman abroad ignoring all our boos
The horseshit had us running like we smelled the stink of old refuse
It was kind of sad to watch you bomb
I've been a fan so very long
I agreed when you sued your former band,
I've ignored lip-synching, and opera that was pretty bland
But this song was bad, bad and long
I hope you hear our plea
This crap should never be put on CDs
Oh Roj! Oh Roj!
Your ideology won't let you see you're still spitting on some of your fans
Is common sense too much for you?
Not once in your whole song
You dare criticize
The killers that are Hezbollah
Every time a suicide bomb does its job to kill innocents
You think it's someone else's fault and logic in your lyrics falls
Al Qaeda, Jihadists, they want to rule us all
They kill artists and poets, young boys and girls,
They killed Todd Beamer
They killed Daniel Pearl
They killed Theo van Gogh
They kill all races, all religions, they kill all
You know it's the right of the Allied might to keep us safe
From extremists all over the world
Blame America First, you wealthy rock star you,
Your bullshit is still bullshit even when it has a catchy tune
You've lost the art of writing with subtle metaphor
Now you are Noam Chomsky, Oliver Stone, and Michael Moore
Back in '61, an Arab family fed you food
You had to think back that far to remember
Arabs who were nice to you?
As I think back in time, from now until then
When did your talent end?
