The Lyrics

Turkey is an enigma in the modern world because it kicked out the Caliphate (Shari'a law) in 1923 and developed a more westernized culture. While no shining beacon of freedom, it is much better off than Shari'a law pestholes like Saudi Arabia and Iran. then along comes Recep Erdogan who begins attacking that secularity in multiple ways. A failed military coup has encouraged him to wreak even more havoc. This Islamist insect needs an application of Raid... but until then, here is a vicious parody aimed at him... enjoy.. **Note: I am using a live performance of this song as inspiration and there was originally a third verse included in it. The final cut decided to keep the guitar solo instead.
Erdy Gurdy man

(Sung to 'Hurdy Gurdy Man' by Donovan)

In '23 Kemal Ataturk
said 'I can make secularity work'..
Now his vision may be damned
because of Recep Erdogan..

'Twas then when the Erdy Gurdy Man
Came singing songs of hate,
Then when the Erdy Gurdy Man
wants to bring back... The Caliphate
Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, gurdy he sang.
Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, gurdy he sang.
Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, gurdy he sang.

Theocracy of ages past
Unenlightened misery cast
Shari'a is what they have now
Though we know it won't work anyhow...

'Tis then when the Erdy Gurdy Man
Comes singing songs of hate,
Then when the Erdy Gurdy Man
Secular law... to desecrate....
Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, gurdy he sang.
Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy.
Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, gurdy he sang.
Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, gurdy he sang.
Here comes the roly poly man and he's singing songs of hate,
Roly poly, roly poly, roly poly, poly he sang.

Erdy will destablize
with his Islam and vicious lies
Equality it may be mislaid..
Does someone have a can of Raid?

'Tis then when the Erdy Gurdy Man
Comes singing songs of hate,
Then when the Erdy Gurdy Man
brings on... The Caliphate
Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, gurdy he sang.
Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy.
Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, gurdy he sang.
Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, gurdy he sang.
Here comes the roly poly man and he's singing songs of hell,
Roly poly, roly poly, roly poly, poly he sang.
Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, gurdy he sang,
Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, Erdy Gurdy, gurdy he sang
