The Lyrics

When the Yanks toppled Saddam Hussein
it was my time to uncover
this is what I did;
I took my gun - and vanished.

I have changed my sides so often,
I've blown up wives and children
and I have many foes,
and the Yanks - they hunt me.

An old woman had a fruit stand,
she sold apples and oranges,
then our car bomb came;
she died without a whisper.

There were three of us this morning
I'm the only one this evening
I've built myself a bomb
I'll blow people up

Oh, the wind, the wind is blowing,
through the graves the wind is blowing,
Yanks they soon will come;
then I'll blow up my bomb...

Les Yanquis e'cherchent chez moi, (The Yankees searched my home)
ils me dirent, "Ands up!," (They said, "Lift up your hands!,")
mais je n'ai pas peur; (But I am not afraid)
j'ai armez mon bomb. (I have armed my bomb.)

J'ai change' cent fois de nom, (I have changed names a hundred times)
j'ai mortu femmes et enfants (I have killed women and children)
mais j'ai tant d'amis; (But I have so many friends)
j'ai al-Qaida entie're. (I have all of al-Qaida)

Oh, the pin, the the pin, got loose
off grenade, the pin got loose
Allah soon will prevail -
it's seconds to Hell...

Fives for well written, hard hitting lyrics - more serious mischief.

Excellent job.

DKTOS but as a fellow Scandinavian I feel I must comment on at least one of your parodies of today. Hmm... that countdown part in it made me think of one my own so I'll change into shameless plug mode here:
