The Lyrics

As a U2 fan, one thing that gets to me is that people think it's OK to say bad things about Bono. Ridiculous and blatantly false rumors that no one will believe, like that he can get himself pregnant, I can just laugh off. But when they accuse him of greed and supporting torture... isn't that the OPPOSITE of what he's trying to do? The worst was when I saw the South Park episode "More Crap". Normally I love South Park, but this was awful! So this is about if Bono was on fire.
Bono's on fire
So let's spray him with the water
Haters are laughing
But what if Eve* was their daughter?

Bono's on fire
And all the hater jerks are bitching
Why can't they see that
Ali's** so freaked out she's twitching?

Sirens are blaring
Noise is louder than I'm used to
People are staring
Lend some assistance to Paul Hewson

Us U2 fans freak out
'Cause our favorite rock star's burning
This crisis is terrible
And yet the haters aren't learning

Where's the extinguisher?
This is more chaos than we're used to
He's not high on ego
Now look what he's being reduced to

(Guitar solo, with the Edge-style harmonics)

Adam, the Edge, Larry
Their extinguishers are spraying
While us U2 fans
Sit outside silently praying

Trey Parker and Matt Stone
Learned that they were too sadistic
They won't do it again
Knowing he's not opportunistic

'Cause Bono's on fire...
No, wait, he isn't, 'cause we soaked him
He's hitting all those high notes
'Cause the experience provoked him
*Eve Hewson, Bono's daughter, who is a sometimes-actress. **Ali Hewson, Bono's wife, who I don't hate. In fact, I admire her strength. She hasn't given into pressure.

U2 Stops the Traffic - May 13, 2011 - Report this comment
Very good, Amanda! I am a big time U2 fan too and I've seen them in concert twice. Bono has talked to world "leaders" like George Dumbya Bush, Tony B. Liar and other scum. Hey, he even got a huge donation from Jesse Helms - that obnoxious black-hating S.O.B. was very ill and on his last leg but if Bono can cajole that Devil's disciple to give to "inferior" people in Africa then that shows that Bono can get even evildoers to do something good. It takes a special kind of guy to do that. Also, I remember the bigoted thief Jerry Falwell brag about his brainwash university and he slammed Archbishop Desmond Tutu as a "phony" (Falwell also supported the fascist apartheid regime of South Africa). Who got a Nobel Peace Prize? Who helped bring freedom to a land by peaceful revolution? History will show. Oh, did I say that U2 ROCKS!
