The Lyrics

Will it ever stop? Comes now word that Zager and Evans (Zager and Evans!!) had converted to Islam and renamed themselves "Zaghir wa Evans." True to their pre-Islamic roots, they have, once again, walked the one-hit wonder path with "In the year AD 525", a heartfelt lamentation to the fall of the Arab caliphate. They, too, performed at Haj-a-Palooza, 1407 -- immediately after "Al Naqib & Ta'aneel" were summarily executed for their rendition of "Chop 'em Down"
In the year AD 525
If Aws can stay alive*
If Khazraj can survive
They may find

In the year AD 635
Ain't gonna be misled by the Jews, tell no lie
Everything that you think, do or say
Is in the Surah that's revealed today

In the year Oh 745
Ain't gonna have no peace, damn you Shi'ites
Your bemoaning's all in vain
Won't give you back that nut, Hussein

In the year AD 855
Our foes prostrating down 'fore our eyes
Islam's banners now unfurled
Abbasids rule the whole damn world

In the year AD 965
Ain't gonna need no Arabs, won't need their knives
Outsource jihad, outsource bloody work
To those newbies called the Seljuk Turks

In the year 11 and 10
If Pope's a-warring, he oughta say so by then
Maybe he'll look around Clermont and say
Guess it's time for the First Crusade

In the year of 12 and 10
Allah may shake his mighty head
He'll either say, "I'm pleased what Islam's wrought"
Or give The Horde genocidal thoughts

In the year AD 1295
I'm kind of wonderin' if Islam will survive
They've taken everything Mongol Hordes could bring
And they din't hold back nothin' (Woe, woe)

Now it's been 10 hundred years
Islam's shed a billion tears
For what the Prophet knew
Now Islam's time is through
But through eternal strife
Our raging at twilight
Now again we slay
Try to bring back yesterday

In the year AD 525
If Yathrib can survive
If Prophet does arrive
They may find ......

*Aws and Khazraj -- two Arab Yemeni tribes who, in the early 6th century, were almost annihilated by a catastrophic dam failure. They emigrated to Medina and eventually became critically important allies to Mohammed

Are you trying to tell me that "In the Year 2525" managed to infiltrate the airwaves over Finland, Susan? I had always thought that the Pop Music Protection Agency had managed to keep this cheese spill contained to the North American continent ;-D

Shu'uks, Rob and Jonathan. Funny (funny?) you should bring up that beheading thing, Rob. Did you know in the Arabic version of "Of Mice and Men" (entitled "Dha Al Fi'ran wa Al Rajul") Jawarj actually beheads Lufti near a dry wadi, as opposed to shooting him in the head with Carlson's luger? He tells Lufti to look across the wadi as he tells how it's gonna be when they become martyrs. And just as Lufti cries out "And we'll live off the fat of Allah; and I get to tend virgi-" Jawarj smites his neck ..... Afterwards, Jawarj's friends consoled him by saying, "You had to do it, Jawarj, he tried to touch the headdress of the sheikhs daughter."
