The Lyrics

"He Tried to Blow Up Christmas": that was the headline on Sunday's Daily News. Story: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/2010/11/28/2010-11-28_christmas_tree_bomber_foiled_in_attempt_to_blow_up_van_near_crowded_oregon_tree_.html OS (Herb Alpert): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6ITGWimCyE OS (Burt Bacharach, who wrote the song): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zudshrOq2AU
(In Oregon, in Portland town
They went to light a tree
Unaware of any danger
From terror’s fantasy…)

A terrorist was plotting
To ruin this holiday
To try to blow up Christmas
And to grieve the U.S.A.

The FBI discovered
The plan of his attack,
Sent undercover agents
To pretend to have his back.

Then Someone said, “Hey, Dude, I am
The God of all that lives,
Of the Christians, Jews, and Muslims.
Hey, Terror Boy, what gives?”

Yet, he assembled bomb parts,
And on Tree-Lighting Day
He tried to blow up Christmas—
But the dud was D.O.A.!

(Prison cells! Prison cells!
Prison all his days!)
He tried to blow up Christmas
But the bomb was D.O.A.!

Then Someone said, “Hey, listen, boy,
I made this world myself!
And if I care to destroy it,
I’ll do without your help!

“And now you’ll spend your lifetime
In prison, as you should;
You tried to blow up Christmas,
But I never said you could!”

(Prison cells! Prison cells!
Prison all his days!)
He tried to blow up Christmas
But the bomb was D.O.A.!

He’s in prison all his days!
He’s in prison all his days!
He’s in prison all his days!

DKTOS (believe it or not), but these words are pretty good, to describe someone who was pretty bad.

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