The Lyrics

Ah, the noble warriors of the peace movement. They have such high ideals. If only the Bushes and Blairs of the world would agree. Fret not, they have powerful world leaders as allies! But with friends like these . . .
We'd like to build bin Laden's home
And furnish it with love
Give Arafat Jerusalem and lockstep with the doves
We'd like to teach the world to sing
In liberal harmony
We'd like to kiss those turbaned heads and make the world PC

We'd like to see bin Laden's gang
All getting their own way
And hear them echo through the hills
"We love the USA"

That's the song we'd hear,
If the peace path we choose,
They would kiss all the Jews.
That's the real thing.

Put your brain in our hands
Let's begin today.
If you buy this nonsense
Bye, bye USA . . .

We'd like to teach the world to sing
in perfect harmony
We're soldiers in the war for peace
We'll make the world PC!

I won't vote on your parody (my biases prevent me). But I will say that as a leftist, I hold no love for Saddam or bin Ladin. If you remember, it's the Dems who want to get bin Ladin, while the Repubs are concentrating on Saddam. I don't see that containment isn't working. Just had to put my political two cents in there. ;)

John Harvey, I appreciate your viewpoint, but as a retired soldier I can tell you that I want both bin Laden and Saddam. I think neither the Dems nor the Republicans want either of them out there in power. I would like to invite you to come to a great political debate site at (just follow the link to the Three Dead Horses Saloon). Don't let the name fool you, it's a great mix of conservatives and liberals debating many things - including the three "dead horses" - God, guns and gays - lol! It's a pretty good crew and if you like debate, come on over! I appreciate that you did not choose to "zap" me because my parody doesn't agree with your view. I do parodies from both sides of the spectrum, so I make a lot of enemies - lol! But they are more for the sake of parody than for any real political axe to grind. Thanks again!

What I don't like about the song you parodied was that it was also used on Kidsongs.

As former Liberal, then soldier, 'Nam two tours, got a brain, became Conservative, I loved your parody about bin Laden... I sing songs for entertainment, and for our band, took the liberty to change, "we;d like to see throat-cuttin' gangs..." MANY THX, Gary Prosser
