The Lyrics

"For what is a port, what have we got, If not a door for some terror plot?" Think "dooBIZEway"... for the youngsters, "My Way" was written by songwriter-singer Paul Anka (from a French song). Anka also wrote the "Tonight Show" theme and had some hits singing his own songs, but when asked why he let Frank Sinatra record and release "My Way" before he did his own version, Anka replied to the effect that he didn't want to wake up and find a horse's severed head at the foot of his bed, a la "The Godfather".
And now, the end seems near,
And so we face the final closing.
The thing, about the ports:
They slipped away, while we were dozing.
We've lived, without a clue,
As Brits controlled our water highways,
And now, much worse than this,
They're headed Dubai's. way.

Concerns? More than a few,
Enough of them to spell rejection.
They've seen lots of bad guys through,
Put up the cash, helped with connections.
They loved the Taliban, but feel the Jews should hit the highway;
There's more, much more than this, stench from Dubai's. ways.

Yes there were crimes, that's surely true,
But now we're told, they've started anew;
But through it all, we've had our doubts --
It don't add up; let's keep them out.
We plan to stall, "cause we're appalled, at the Dubai way.

They've spun, they've leaked and lied,
This pack of shills, Dubai's been using.
And now, as jeers arise, the Dubai crowd just might be losing.
To see this deal fall flat,
In spite of all the gifts and bribes paid --
Oh man, that would be sweet:
Rejecting Dubai's. way.

For what is a port, what have we got,
If not a door for some terror plot?
To be averse, to this ports deal,
Is not to be, a racist schlemiel;
Let the record show, who took the dough:
And pushed Dubai's way.

Yes, pushed Dubai's.. way.

This was very good. Has anyone noticed that these ports are surrounded by "blue voters"?
