The Lyrics

Adapt to 'A Horse With No Name' by America
In the first half of September
We were looking at the loss of life
There was France and Kurds and Iraq Earthlings
There was big land fills past Kings
Tower two was met with a plane a loud buzz
Filled the sky with black clouds
The heat so hot that the ground would fry
And the city was void of sound

It came from the desert from a house with much blame
They've got chems that can fall like rain
From the desert in September it came
And there ain't no one ever gave us such pain
La la la la-la la-la-la La la-la la la

After two days the Manhattan sun
Through the smoke still looked red
After three days still alive was no one
The shock began to turn into dread
And the stories were told of the heros that glowed
Made us sad to think they were dead

So see We'll fight in the desert and we'll stop those to blame
We've got bombs that will fall like rain
To the desert in October we came
And we rid that place of those ones so insane
La la la la-la la-la-la La la-la la la

After nine weeks we set the whole place free
From the desert to near the sea
There was France and Turks and Iraq Earthlings
There was sand hills and tribal kings
Al Qaeda's in the desert with its troops underground
And bombs fall from high above
In their dark cities in their caves underground
So inhuman they know no love

You see it came from the desert from a house with much blame
They've got chems that can fall like rain
From the desert in September it came
And there ain't no one ever gave us such pain
La la la la-la la-la-la La la-la la la

Seems like more of a serious parody than a funny one.

Right you are - Fun was not the point of this writing. I just wanted to share this. Thanks for the comment and to all who are voting.

This is a something to remember.

I think your parody is interesting and the pacing is good.
Shaun Chinen - May 31, 2003 - Report this comment
No, it wasn't funny at all. However, I did give it a 5 for the overall score because of its content. My, how quickly we had forgotten September 11. As Pat Carrasco, this truely is something to remember.

Muy bien otra vez Guy. :-) Es uno de tu (su? no recuerdo,lo siento)primero? (I just know-I've now mutilated the Spanish language.) lol Otra vez,muy bien. TC Birgitta

Thanks Birgitta. This was one of my more profound parodies. I love doing parodies to this song. I've done at least two. Probably do more in the future. I was only writing out here about a week when I wrote this one.

BTW, my Spanish isn't that good either. I have a Tex-Mex flavor to mine and I like to use the local flavor of the language in a lot of my parodies. Tex-Mex is not quite Spanish with a bit of English I guess, sort of like Spanglish. One of my favorite things to use is the term "Cool Arrow" LOL.

Humour was a little lacking, but the rest proved to be very cool. Good job.
Guy - March 04, 2004 - Report this comment
RIght you are STG, but I think it would be in extremely bad taste to make any humor of that day. I wrote this as a tribute to all the heros of that very tragic day. Just simply substitute "how profound" for the "how funny" voting category since the voting categories only allow for humor ratings. I do this on all profound and serious parodies that I vote on.

Heavy duty and very well-said, Guy. Thanks for writing this. 5's

Impressive!
John Jenkins - March 08, 2004 - Report this comment
A very moving parody, Guy. The verse that ended with "made us sad to think they were dead" was especially powerful.
Mari D - March 09, 2004 - Report this comment
Well done, Guy! The la las add the right touch of irony.
Diva - March 09, 2004 - Report this comment
"Horse /w NN" is just right to match somber poetry. Very well done!

Well done Guy
Paul Robinson - March 10, 2004 - Report this comment
Guy - Well done. I'm scoring it 5-4-5. I would have straight "5"'d it using "emotional depth" in place of "Funny" but where the situation stands in Iraq/Afghanistan now is a constant reminder of what a half-assed job the current leadership here has done in planning and implementing any sort of satisfactory "end-game". I can barely stand to read about it anymore.

So you "4" me for something Bush did? ;-) Thanks for your vote and comment.

I posted a suggestion in voting thread bracket two for you so you can avoid that frustration of losing your editing as you related happened to you last night.

I'm kinda stuck on the definition of parody as imitation for comic effect, so I don't appreciate parodies as much when they deal with serious topics in a serious manner. But I also appreciate your passion with this, GD'R. And your prolificness is amazing.
Guy - March 11, 2004 - Report this comment
Spaff - Thank you so much. I had my reasons for choosing this song and believe me they weren't to win the tournament. I hope as a kind of sidebar issue to the tournament that this song offered some diversity to the tournament with it's serious nature. It was just one of the first few songs that I wrote on this site and I thought it deserved another exposure. I do not consider this a politcal parody, and I'm not saying that anyone has called it that. We must always remember what happened on that Tuesday morning and how it has gotten us to where we are now.

Thanks to all who read, commented and voted and thanks to Claude for starting the tournament that allowed this song a second exposure. God Bless everyone.
