The Lyrics

Last week was chock-full of parodies concerning the slaying of Osama bin Laden, leader of Al-Qaida from 1988 to 2 May 2011. Though it was the right thing to do, I must say that the ensuing celebrations back home in America might have been a bit excessive at times. This parody, then--my third of Onjohn (second straight) and 87th overall--deals with the reaction to Navy SEALs just doing their duty.
He was dead,
But Americans soon wanted to parade his head
'Round the White House, White House
For the dough
That would come therewith; the president said no.

Osama's been shot, totally shot
By Navy SEALs.
We cheered when he was shot, totally shot
For highlight reels.
We cheered with excess, no more, no less
When he was totally shot.

Morality,
Whither morality when Obama broke the news?
All hell broke loose, broke loose
On May Night.
We got carried away on the next day
After he was shot, totally shot
By U.S. troops.
We were festive 'cos he was shot, totally shot
And his head drooped.
They want photographs released by staff
'Cos he's been totally shot.

It's a shame when we treat this the same
Like one's team's Super Bowl win, a Super Bowl win
And the Fall Classic too.

Obama, withhold the stills!
When the public, public wants to get the hype,
That's a no-no.
It certainly blows
Whenever you fight the dead to get a head
Though bin Laden's shot, totally shot.
To hell with them
Who want his corpse shot, totally shot
To make mayhem.
You would not provoke those Taliban blokes
Though he's been totally shot.
Just be on your guard, it still will be hard
E'en though he's totally (3x) shot.
Just go back to work, don't go beserk
Though he's been totally, totally, totally shot.
Honour that one SEAL, but make it real
Though he's been totally, totally, totally shot!
(Ad lib and fade)
Emperor Charles V of the Holy Roman Empire, upon hearing about the death of Protestant reformer Martin Luther and being advised to hang the corpse, said: "I make war on the living, not the dead." Likewise, though this was a great victory, it's still just one victory, not the end of the war on terror.

You picked a good OS to cover. I remember around that time when Olivia had on that skin-tight black leather pants. Ahhhhhhhhh ; )
