Parody Song Title:
"Cat's on the Blacklist"
My trip began just the other day
Was waved through the gate in the usual way
I had a plane to catch to the USA
But the Feds detained me, then sent me away
I'd planned to touch down in DC when I left the flight
but then I had a fright
Uncle Sam said "Your name's not right!"
Well, ol' Cat's on the blacklist and he'll bring our doom
If we let him in, he'll blow us all to the moon
"When you comin' in, Cat?" "I don't know when...
But when Kerry's prez I'll try again--
Yeah, that's when I'll try again"
My trip was ended the other day
Though I had no trouble when I left the UK
Would the Feds let me go? They said "Not today,
Your name is Arab now, and that's hardly OK!"
Never thought a misspelled name on the no-fly list
made me a terrorist--
Spelling error someone missed
Well, my flight back to England left the other day
The media folks had a lot to say
The whole thing really seems kind of odd
Bush hates my faith and he wants a Jihad
Back in England I help kids with Muslim charities
To the Feds, that makes me sleaze!
I doubt that I'll take another outbound plane
Being grounded here is a royal pain
Because I call myself Yusuf Islam now
Guys from Homeland Security all had a cow
Saw the news the other night, someone confused my name--
Dubya's running the devil's game, boys
thinks I ought to take the blame
As I got back on the plane, it occurred to me
What a nutjob Bush can be
Though he calls this country free...
