The Lyrics

for the original: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4d5jKlDNjEs
Not a chance, they're free
Tempting his own fate, that Mousavi
Not done, not won
Now the riots last to almost dawn
This was done before
Boy, not like this
Like in quicksand, they are sinking fast
Perfect, this craft
Ayatollah K has got himself
A devil's success

"Welcome to Iran", he said
"Welcome to my world.
We're gonna rig elections
Yeah, girl
We're gonna rig elections
Don't you forget it
Rig elections
Just enough... for... illusions"

Fight long, go on
Bang a Tango with the cops that mangle
Their will stays strong
But the man we all despise still reigns on
As they fill the roads
And the world beholds
How the Mullahs'...actions violate the...
Purpose... there is...
A tragic role parallel
Believed by... Israel

"Welcome to Iran", he said
"Welcome to their world."
It's not a question if they care
Fight by their side.... the West's stand...
Media shut... to this plot
Now, they said, "World, we have won.
We're gonna rig elections
Yeah, world
We're gonna rig elections
Don't you forget it
Rig elections
Just enough... for... illusions
For everyone...
Welcome to Iran
Welcome to Iran...."

I'm not familiar with the OS, and it's not funny at all, so I didn't vote. That's not a bad thing though, because this was excellently written. Awesome stuff.

Thanks black! :)

The rhyming in this was absolutely superb, and in a way educational. I am familiar with the Iran voting situation, but I wasn't really up to speed on who it was that was running, cheating etc (because I hadn't had time to really read the story) Awesome job, love the very first rhyme couplet--always impressive to see names rhymed in a song.

Timely and excellently stated

Thanks, AFW :) Thanks also to Dave. Yeah, the Iran situation is pretty screwed up right now, but it did lend itself well to this song. Thanks again for the compliments :)

OK, I've listened to the OS and I replaced 'How Funny" with 'How Chillingly Real' The number of this beast came up 5-5-5. Scary!

Thanks again, black. :D

Right on target and of course scary. I was surprised to see one by Tori. but I had the d/l. You did a lot of work rhyming with her unusual accent and I really liked it! 5's

Very good parody, Macphisto - flows very well to the OS. For some reason my votes aren't taking - maybe the Ayatollah has this page rigged now too, lol. 5s all the same.

Yes, it's a very strange world that we live in, MasterMac . . . No hard feelings if I never re-Tack . . .
MrMacphisto - July 12, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks, Adagio, Red, and Unknown! :) Yeah, Tori is definitely a hard one to keep pacing with. It's part of why it's taking me so long to come out with stuff for her songs...

MasterMac, nice to see this again, Sir !
MrMacphisto - July 13, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks Unknown #2 :) I'll be writing another Tori one tomorrow.

Well, this comment is well after the fact since your post was in 7/09, but you did a very fine job with this OS, certainly a difficult one to work with. 5's ~ ~ ~
