The Lyrics

The legend lives on from Fallujah on down
of Ramzi Abdullah Bin-Ali
He didn't kill yanks, didn't bomb any tanks
but he mooned the entire allied army
His story so bold many times has been told,
All around the great Sunni triangle,
His protest was peeks at his bare muslim cheeks
and between them his something a-dangle

His butt was his pride, it could not be denied,
it had hair only in the right places
So handsome his tush, that it gave him a rush
when he saw the shocked look on their faces
On a long desert road, as the infantry roared
When the whole convoy stopped with a screeching
Two sand dunes it seemed looked suspicious indeed
T'was Bin-Ali the Quran a-preaching

In the city Baghdad, he showed all what he had
when the word came that someone was looting
There'd be no reprieves, but they didn't find thieves,
They only found Abdullah's booty
One night was so dark, as they camped in a park,
and the sound of insurgency rang soon,
They'd not find Saddam, but instead this old ham
showed them even in darkness a full moon

In the town of Tikrit he bared all but his feet
when Saddam Hussein's statue was torn down
when the portrait was gone, the town light now shone
to show something else that was pulled down
A soldier named Brad, asked what ID he had,
As though the stunt he just pulled was so heinous
As his form of ID, he just set it all free
What he showed G.I. Brad was his anus

In Basra the hack showed the Brits his butt crack
and they all said "I say old chap hide it
Seargant Nigel is weak, and the sight of your cheek
Well I dare say he could not abide it."
When a Scottish marine wed a young Basra teen,
The whole army church filled up with soldiers
he mooned with such pride, he embarrassed the bride
Scott said "Mon, whures yure kilt aen yure druthers"

In Mosul it seems Ali's butt has been seen,
But that's where he finally stumbled,
he spread 'em too wide, and showed more than his hide,
and the soldiers all felt rather humbled
An Iraqi girl saw, that's against muslim law,
so the locals said "have him arrested"
when the court case it came the defense caused much shame
to his bravery many attested

Does anyone know where the love of Allah goes
when a man must be flogged in the town square
well the hour for the crime it arrived right on time
and before long a large crowd showed up there
Somebody cried "Show him we're on his side"
and all cheered for the man in the jail stocks
One by one dropped their pants, as they all took their stance
And the cops saw a street full of buttocks

The cheers were so loud it made Bin-ali proud,
but the flogging proved too much to handle
The crowd they dispersed but they got him a Hearse
and they held a big vigil with candles
At a mosque in Kirkuk, many signed the guest book
from the kurds to the most powerfullmullah
The call to prayer rang twenty nine thousand times,
for each mooned by Bin-Ali Abdullah

BRAVO !! **applause** This is a welcome addition to the anals - er, I mean annals - of Edmund Fitzgerald Parodology!

The very first line is a textbook-masterpiece of pacing genius: "The legend lives on from Fallujah on down of Ramzi Abdullah Bin-Ali"

555 of course!

I must have a real enemy on this board. Some idiot goes around giving me 1-1-1 every time I enter a parody....

Don't let it worry you, Laurence - it's happened to all of us here at some point. Instead, feel proud of an absolutely brilliant parody - this one fits all the criteria: the pacing is perfect, the storyline's very witty and there's some great lines within. Sheer genius.

"Edmund Fitzgerald" is one of my all time favorite songs. And this may be the best parody to it yet! I gave it the three-five rating.
