The Lyrics

Ever since 9-11 America's masses
Are footing the bill to kick terrorist asses.
It's nothing but trouble
Internationally
You may be a Paki,
Your all like Iraqis to me.

It's just like a game, you can't tell the players
Who set off the bomb in the middle of prayers?
There are no friendlies,
No innocents you see.
You may be a Paki
You're all like Iraqis to me.

Oh, we spent billions on planes,
And on stuff to make flames
Just to force regime change.
Oh, how the people complain
The third world's all the same
We threw it all down the drain.


Each time we're attacked as we rebuild your nations
Brings us all a bit closer to annihilation.
We're charged with the mission "be all we can be"
You may be a Paki,
You're all like Iraqis to me.

The Sunni's and Shiites and all of the others
Worship a prophet who said they are brothers.
But they fight just like children, they'll never be free
You may be a Paki,
You're all like Iraqis to me.

Oh, we spent billions on planes,
And on stuff to make flames
Just to force regime change.
Oh, how the people complain
The third world's all the same
We threw it all down the drain.

So rather than cry how we sullied your land
Get a good lawyer and get with the plan
We don't really care if you people are free.
All we want to do is buy oil from you
But you're all like Iraqis to me.

I thought this parady was beyond tasteless. Bruce like many other Americans needs to get a life and get over what happened 3 years ago. Why doesn't he focus on what's going on in the U.S. the rapes, the murders, the gangs, the prostitution, homelessness and diseases among many other things than sit around for hours trying to come up with lyrics to parady a song on Middle Easterners. "BUT YOU ALL ARE DUMB ASSESTO ME..."

We've had rapes, murders, gangs, protitution, homelessness and diseases as long as anyone can remember. 9/11 is still something new and three years ago, as you say is like yesterday to us. Would you tell a grieving mother to get over a child's death in this amount of time? Get real Paki and if you don't like our freedom of speech go back where you came from. Unlike the oppressive regimes that are so common in your part of the world no one is keeping you here.

Pakies? Reminds me of the SNL news where they said "Bush called the Pakistanis "Pakies", so as a precaution they cancelled his trip to Nigeria." This one was funny too...

What most of these people don't realize is that Saddam and Osama would be mortal enemies. This parody says "You all look like Iraqis to me." Saying that is just like saying French and German people are exactly the same, as well as British people, Spiniards, Portuguese people, and Italians. Are they? Saddam Hussein is barely religious. He tries to convince people he is just so that he can get people on his side, while Osama bin Laden is a religious fanatic Shiite. Last time I recall Saddam is a "Sunni" who hated, tortured, and killed the Shiite Kurds. Osama isn't too happy with barely religious people or people of no religion. In fact I think he was committed to destroying the Soviet Union because it was atheist.

What's a Spiniard?

The comments here suprised me. I thought the parody author was completely making fun of the 'bloodthirsty conservative yokel from Alabama' stereotype. It's completely sarcastic! Um..........right? Because I've never met anyone who actually thinks like that, over the age of 15. On the other hand, I haven't met many people over the age of 15 at all. Hmmm. It's a hilarious exaggeration if it's tounge-in-cheek, but so stupid it's not funny if it's serious....though the last time I saw a political parody that was actually funny, I don't remember.

Pulled this up on random. It works for me. 5s.

Yes, it was a send-up, an exageration and very tongue-in-cheek. Unfortunately it's turned out to be a bit prophetic as well- thousands of lives later there is no freedom, followers of the same religion are again split over sectarian differences and power while ignoring the central tenet of their faith. A great democracy is dismantled in the name of forming a new democracy in a land far away. To what end?
