The Lyrics

Parody of Harry Belafonte singing insults at Colin Powell followed by retorts sung by parodies of Trent Lott, Tom Daschle and Colin Powell
Parody of Harry Belafonte sings:
Mass-destruction Atom Bomb
Hope Saddam will abandon the bomb
Jim McDermott trusts Saddam
Thinks Saddam will abandon the bomb
Wait, I say wait, I say wait
Resolutions will frighten Saddam
Wait, I say wait, I say wait
Hope Saddam will abandon the bomb
Hey, Colin Powell, Dubya is yo' b'wana
Work for Honkies as a Sambo Mon
Hey, Colin Powell, Dubya is yo' b'wana
Work for Honkies as a Sambo Mon

Parody of Trent Lott sings:
Stick a fork in, Harry's done
Callin' Colin a Sambo Mon
Harry's dinner I must shun
Callin' Colin a Sambo Mon
Race, he play race, he play race
Callin' Colin a Sambo Mon
Race, he play race, he play race
Harry, you are the Sambo Mon
Hey, Belafonte, Hollywood's yo' b'wana
You, not he, are the Sambo Mon
Hey, Belafonte, speakin' for your b'wana
You, not he, are the Sambo Mon

Parody of Tom Daschle sings:
Belafonte's havin' fun
Should rebuke 'im but words won't come
Belafonte's havin' fun
Can't rebuke 'im but can't stay mum.
Race, he play race, he play race.
Ain't PeeCee to say, "Harry stay mum.".
Safe, I play safe, I play safe.
I'll just say that he's beatin' his gums.
Be-ing PeeCee causes such a trauma..
Just to-prove I ain't Honkie Mon
Not to worry, Harry, you're my b'wana.
Just to prove I ain't Honkie Mon.

Parody of Colin Powell sings:
Work at State to get Saddam
Belafonte call me Sambo Mon
Tell Saddam ... we soon will come
Belafonte call me Sambo Mon
Wait, he say wait, he say wait
Belafonte call me Sambo Mon
Wait, he say wait, he say wait
Belafonte call me Sambo Mon
Hey, Belafonte, sing about bananas
Belafonte call-me Sambo Mon
Hey, Belafonte, Dubya ain't my b'wana
Belafonte call-me Sambo Mon

Stick foot in-mouth Harry's done
Claiming I am a Sambo Mon
Big mouth Harry's having fun
Claiming I am a Sambo Mon
Wait, he say wait, he say wait
For Saddam he's a Sambo Mon
Wait, he say wait, he say wait
Hope Saddam will abandon the bomb
Hey, Belafonte, Hollywood's yo' b'wana
You, not I, are the Sambo Mon
Hey, Belafonte, speakin' for your b'wana
You, not I, are the Sambo Mon
