The Lyrics

to honor 1 year...Here it is, the parody that has been one year in the making...Afganistan Pie...a great song, one of my favorites! Of course about the event that happened one year ago to date: Terrorist attacks on the US 9/11/01, however this is about the attacks on the world trade center...and not the others, sorry if you were looking forward to that!
A long long time ago,
I can still remember when the World Trade Center
used to stand so high,
And I knew if I had my way, that I would make those Arabs pay,
And maybe we'll be happy that we're alive
But 9/11 made me shiver,
With the reflections in the east river,
Bad news down in downtown,
I couldn't bear but to frown,
And I can't remember if I sighed,
When I heard about the deadly ride,
Something touched us deep inside,
The day taliban flied,



So bye bye miss Afghanistan pie,
Drove their planes into the buildings and made the buildings subside,
And the people all searching for the loved ones who died
But America had survived


Did you see the planes up in the sky,
were you aware of those who died,
when the World Trade Center fell down,
do you believe it was the taliban,
and do you blame Afghanistan,
and can you tell me all about Pakistan
and I know Osama's behind it all,
'cause he was laughing when he saw the towers fall,
he sat his turban down,
and then laughed upon our frowns,
He was a lonely terrorist without any guts,
with a turban and a nuclear truck,
and we knew that he was outta luck,
the day Taliban flied,

He started singing bye bye miss Afghanistan pie,
drove their planes into the buildings and made the buildings subside,
And the people all searching for the loved ones who died
but America had survived, America had survived

Now it's been one year, since the towers fell
And we want to see Osama rot in hell
and that's always how it used to be
when the towers were bombed in '93
and it only wrecked part of the street
but Osama did not retreat
but the towers soon would hit the ground
and Bin Ladin hated all around
but the site was now a wreck
Osoma was inept
and medics went up to spite remarks
and ships came down to Battery Park
but the digging went on through the dark
the day taliban flied

and we were singing bye bye miss Afghanistan pie,
drove their planes into the buildings and made the buildings subside,
And the people all searching for the loved ones who died
but America had survived, America had survived

Tower, Delta, 9/11 remember
survivors went off to medical centers
to see if loved ones were there
people jumped breaking the glass
survivors huddled in a mass
with the medics running up really fast
but the towers soon would become a wreck
leading everybody to their deaths
they all went up to save
but it lead 'em to their grave
'cause Osoma tried to wreck our lives
and made 5000 people die
do you recall, what they tried
the day, taliban flied

I started singing bye bye miss Afghanistan pie,
drove their planes into the buildings and made the buildings subside,
And the people all searching for the loved ones who died
but America had survived, America had survived

and then it was a big disgrace
the towers collapsed in their place
with no time left to dig them out
we went on, unfortunately terrorists got their wish
two planes crashed into the towers quick
and then the towers collapsed in the end
and when I watched 'em fall from grace
my hands were clutched in fists of rage
hundreds of people fell
'Osoma, rot in hell'
and as the bombs were dropped all through the night
digging continued at the site
we saw Osoma laughing with delight
the day taliban flied

and he was singing bye bye miss Afghanistan pie,
drove their planes into the buildings and made the buildings subside,
And the people all searching for the loved ones who died
but America had survived, America had survived

I met a girl whose husband died
I asked her if she knew why
she just smiled and turned away
and I went down to ground zero
where the towers stood hours ago
but the diggers said the towers didn't stay
and in the streets the children screamed
the mourners cried
and the searchers seeked
but not a word was spoken;
the death count was atrocious
and the lost men in the towers wreck
police, firemen and ceo-exects
found one after the next
the day taliban flied

so bye bye miss Afghanistan pie,
drove their planes into the buildings and made the buildings subside,
And the people all searching for the loved ones who died
but America had survived, America had survived

So bye bye miss Afghanistan pie,
drove their planes into the buildings and made the buildings subside,
And the people all searching for the loved ones who died
but America had survived, America had survived
hope you enjoyed...email: MFLORIO45@hotmail.com

Well done and timeless! Straight 5.0 even though not perfect. This is no easy song to parody due to length of song and lyric intricatcies.

OK, but your statements are out of whack. Almost every Arab condemns al-Qaeda, simply because they are religiously insane. They distort Islam to a version that they can say America must die because. Usually Islam is about peace, and quite a few Muslims were shocked about 9/11. Sure, in Palestine they were happy, but that's because our country speads a pro-Israel diplomacy over there. In fact, those were the only people I saw cheering about 9/11. Don't generalize Arabs into the category of insane terrorists, because only the really twisted ones are terrorists.
