The Lyrics

Yessar Arafat is surely trying to distance himself from the latest Gaza bombing that invovled Americans this time.
Oh, mister terror, made an error,
Arafat's sorry,
Arafat's screwy,
Arafat's sorry,
Mister terror, made an error,
Make him his-tor-y,
Arafat,
Arafat,
Arafat's screwy.

He stays busy, jackin' jumbos,
Or financing,
Those old Hamas dumbos.

Mister terror, made an error,
Arafat's screwy,
Arafat's sorry,
Arafat's screwy,
Mister terror, made an error,
Arafat's sorry,
Arafat,
Arafat,
Arafat's screwy. Oh,

Get a clue some,
You're so war some,
And so gruesome,
You became hardcore scum.

Oh, mister terror, made an error,
Arafat's sorry,
Arafat's screwy,
Arafat's sorry,
Mister terror, made an error,
Make him his-tor-y,
Arafat,
Arafat,
Arafat's screwy. Hey!

Guy - congratulations on being the first (and last?) on this site to parody an Arthur Godfrey song. How did you hear of it?

My mother had the 78 inch record and I used to listen to this and countless others as a kid. Wish I still had that.

Oops - Did I say 78 Inch? I meant 78 RPM. I gotta quit staying up so late. Malcolm, I would have loved to have seen your Grand Mother singing this song to you. Now I see where you and I get our parody desires. Heck most of those old 78 RPM records were parodies on thier own, they were so simple minded, like 'Slap her down again Pa' and 'I loved you for seventy mental reasons' and 'fuedin a fightin and a fussin' to name a few of the more memorable ones that I used to listen to.
