The Lyrics

The full title is "Your Mahdi Don't Dance (And Your Nebbis Don't Rock and Roll)" but it was too long for the title box. Nebbi is the Arabic word for the minor Islamic prophets so we won't be insulting al Rasool today -- just the little Nebbis. The working thesis for this song is that the severity of Muslim life plus the ruthless segregation of the sexes creates extreme frustration and rage in young men which is then channeled into violence against the religious "Other" -- Jews, Christians, Shi'ites (or Sunnis) and now Yazidis
Your Mahdi don't dance and your Nebbis don't rock and roll
Your Mahdi don't dance and your Nebbis don't rock and roll
When mullahs come around
And lash young lovers down
Where do you do
To rock and roll

The old folks say that you gotta stow away your bints
If she's out at the souq, showing arm to Farouq
It's a sin
Your know there's no relievin'
You know you'll need to die
To have Virgins ... again and again

(And it's all because ..)

Your Mahdi don't dance and your Nebbis don't rock and roll
Your Mahdi don't dance and your Nebbis don't rock and roll
When mullahs come around
And they stone the women down
Where do you go
To off your load

You sign up with ISIS
Drive out Yazid men
You do atrocious acts
To restore Bilad al Shem
You run amok in Mosul
Rounding up Messihs
They're acting meek, but then your shiekh
Says "Allah Akbar, Kaffirs"
Kablooie ... Or worship with me
Or pay the poll fee

(And you killed because ...)

Your Mahdi don't dance and your Nebbis don't rock and roll
Your Mahdi don't dance and your Nebbis don't rock and roll
When mullahs come around
And they stone the lovers down
Where do you go
To rock and roll
Where do you go
To off your load
Where do you go
You just explode

Some years ago, there was this comic thread called called "What's Hot on Jihadi Radio" where readers were invited to submit titles. This was one of the funnier ones. I've had this title in the back of my mind for years, I was just too lazy to follow up on it. Then, suddenly the words were there, so I laid them down. And that's the name of that tune ;-D .... Got a couple of other ones buzzing around, so look for it soon.
