The Lyrics

As sung by the Detroit airplane terrorist, who was trained in Yemen.
When I was just a bad, young man, my father told on me,
Some fear is what I’m learning near the angry Yemen Sea,
I’ll build my hate and shove my joy, my father cries for me,
He fears I’ll mind my terror friends and go on Yemen spree.

Yemen spree very sh*tty and in Yemen, power deceit,
They can’t root out threats in Yemen, they’re impossible to beat,
Yemen spree, it’s a pity, that the men all cower and bleat,
They stand mute while evil, bad men plot to blow up airplane seat.

We pray, belief in Yemen spree, we shove our bull and lie,
Unfurl a feat, we’ll be reviled, we’ll char you as you die,
We’ll blast and bomb the plane above to start the Yemen spree,
No shoes will they chase after, ‘cause my panties hide the key.

Yemen spree very gritty and in Yemen, power deceit,
They can’t boot out threats in Yemen, they’re impossible to beat,
Yemen spree, it’s a pity, that the men all cower and bleat,
They stand mute while evil, bad men plan a blown up airplane seat.

With move so deft, my violence spurred, I lit PETN,
There’s just a spark, I burned behind, and now I’m in the pen,
No rights, I thought they’d rather, just a-summon me for screw,
Instead, my rights they do allow, and now I sing woo-hoo.

Yemen plea in the city and my lawyer’s power is sweet,
Their pursuit of terrorist men is impossible to meet,
Let them plea by committee, but my legal power’s replete,
I salute and implore Yemen, get me out and on the street.

They should plant a "suicide bomber" lawyer to his defense team, and take him out in a private meeting!!!

Great job. I've heard that Al-Qaeda has fled Yemen and taken refuge in the capital city of neighboring Oman. This escape will go down in history as "The Muscat Ramble!" ;D

It's certainly Suicide Bomber Day today on Amiright isn't it? Great stuff, Timmy...not familiar with the OS, but this was easy to read and sharp as a tack. 555

Thanks all. Nice one Ribber, but I wouldn't be surprised if they were already in Oman. I'll leave that parody to you. Kristoff, I caught yourstoday too - well done on those loonies.

Just hope they don't come up with another way to punish the flying public, like they did with the shoe bomber. Excellent parody, well deserving of 5s
