The Lyrics

Since this is about ISIS, perhaps I should have named it "You've lost that ISIS feeling." It's just that "Muslim feeling" works much better. In fairness to Muslims, there has been a great hue and cry of outrage directed at ISIS from many Islamic sources. On the other hand, there are disturbing surveys showing large percentages of European Muslims supporting ISIS
You never shout "Akbar" anymore when you take a head
There was some reticence in Mosul to shoot kids dead
You're trying hard not to show it (Shahid)*
But Shahid, Shahid I know it!
You've lost that Muslim feeling
Wallah, Muslim feeling
Get back that Muslim feeling
Or you're gone .. gone .. gone (kull wa'il)

Now there's no frenzied look in your eyes when you speak of Jews
And Hajj, you're starting to agonize over things we do
It makes me just feel like crying (Shahid)
Because Shahid, something brutal is dying
You've lost that Muslim feeling
Wallah, Muslim feeling
Get back your Muslim feeling
Or you're gone .. gone .. gone (kull wa'il)

Hajji, Hajji, I prostrate on the ground and pray
So we won't have to .. shoot you like a dog today
You've got a skill .. a skill .. a skill .. you don't see everyday
So let's go .. go .. go .. go .. slit a few throats today

So Shahid, (Shahid); Shahid (Shahid)
Please (please, please) Shahid please (Please please)
We need your bomb (need you to bomb) We need your bomb
Strap it on your back (Strap it on back)
Sling it on your back (Sling it on back)

Bring back that Muslim feeling
Wallah Muslim feeling
Get back that Muslim feeling
Or you're gone .. gone .. gone
And we'll still fight on .. Bil-lah

*Shahid -- Arabic for martyr ..... Kull wa'il -- Arabic lamentation (literally, "All woe")

Don't quite get it. Who is speaking, and to whom? Are some murderous Muslims mellowing, and that's getting other Muslims upset?

Let's go with your interpretation, "?" -- except there's only one jihadi mellowing ....... If I could reach out thru the internet and pull my submission back for a sec, I'd rewrite the second line as "And you SHOWED reticence in Mosul to shoot kids dead." ..... That bit of inspiration flashed in my noggin immediately after I hit "Send". But you know what they say, "You can't unclick a click."

Gotta love that first line.
Callmelennie - September 01, 2014 - Report this comment
My thoughts exactly, Adam. I had the title in my back pocket for years. Then, maybe a week ago, that first line just popped into my head. And I was like -- That's a classic. Hell, the rest of the song could be pure unadulterated crap and it would still be redeemed by that first line

I grokked it.

This is brilliant! The only thing a fanatic hates more than his enemy is someone in his own crowd who seems to lack fervor for the cause. Best parody I've seen here in a long time.

The OS is fertile grounds for a funny parody, because the OS itself is completely spoof worthy. Any half-decent parody of the first line of this song will draw a laugh from people our age because it is such an earworm in our collective memory and because it is such an amateurish, over the top lyric -- it's one of those things that's so bad, it's good. Not for nothing were the Righteous Bros a one-hit wonder

I could probably do a second version of YLTMF, but then folks might accuse me of pig-piling on the Religion of Peace; so I'll just jot down a few lines in this here comment box. This one concerns a Muslim father trying to rein in his wayward daughter ........... You don't avert your eyes in the suq when you meet strange men .. And there's NO reticence on your part to shame our clan .. You're trying real hard to show it .. So daughter, daughter I know it .. You've lost that Muslim feeling, etc. ............ Now there's a playful tone in your voice when boys talk to you .. And, girl, you're starting to patronize the zauj (husband) I choose .. It makes me just feel like groaning .. Cause, daughter, this could lead to a stoning .. You lost, etc

I read a book by a Saudi princess who described how one of her friends was drowned in the family swimming pool, by her own father, for flirting with a foreign man. This was done with the sanction of the local religious authorities. There was a video on line of Muslim men stoning a woman for refusing to marry the man her father wanted to force on her. They did have the decency to pull her skirt down to cover her while they were striking her in the head with rocks. I wish I had been there that day and had a Kalashnikov in my hands. Here is my Middle Eastern strategy: give every Muslim woman a sharp knife with the name "John Wayne Bobbit" etched on the blade in Arabic script.
