The Lyrics

The other night on my car radio, I head an oldies station playing this number by a fellow named Cat Stevens. "Isn't that the terrorist sympathizer guy who's calling himself Yusuf Islam now?" I asked myself. When I got home and checked with my usual news sources, I discovered that yes, that's him all right! When a guy who has openly said he'd like to see Salman Rushdie burned alive starts talking about peace, you might just want to check through all those mushy, gooshy lyrics about world peace he's been singing to see whether you *really* understood what he was saying the first time. Case in point: suppose he started singing this version of "Peace Train" to you?
Now I've been laughing lately,
Thinking about some good things to come,
For I believe it must be
Something good has begun.

Oh, I'm all smiles here, lately
Dreaming about worldwide Islam,
As I believe it should be;
Some day, it's going to come.

From outside the foul Great Satan,
Here comes the peace train!
Oh, peace train, take this country
And all its Jews away.

So--now I'm laughing greatly;
Thinking about some good things to come,
For I believe it must be
Something good has begun.

The peace train, crowd it harder;
Ride on the peace train!
(Fool-jah-in-fi-del-jah)
Hop on the peace train.

Yeah, peace train, cattle herder;
Israelis jump up on the peace train!
(Fool-jah-in-fi-del-jah)
Hop on the peace train.

Stack your bags together
Gold stars for your friends too.
Peacetime is getting nearer;
This war will end with you.

You're not really living,
Real life's so far from you,
But it's getting nearer:
Soon you will know what's true.

The peace train, crowd it harder;
Ride on the peace train!
(Fool-jah-in-fi-del-jah)
Up on the peace train, peace train.

Now I've been crying laughing
Thinking about the world as it is:
Why must you go on hating?
Let's make an end of this.

From outside your land of darkness,
Here comes the peace train.
Oh, peace train, cleanse this country,
Of all its Christian men.

The peace train, crowd it harder;
Ride on the peace train!
(Fool-jah-in-fi-del-jah)
Hop on the peace train.

Yeah, peace train, cattle herder;
Christian men jump up on the peace train!
(Fool-jah-in-fi-del-jah) (Go on, go on, go on!)
Yeah, up on the peace train. This is your peace train!

(Fool-jah-in-fi-del-jah)
Ta ta, now peace train, bye peace train...
(Fool-jah-in-fi-del-jah)
Right now, of course, Yusuf Islam's on tour with another racist loser, Al Gore. See how easy it is to be consistent in your desires, even if they seem so contradictory? Just as some people (such as every member of Planned Parenthood) favor eliminating poor people in order to eliminate poverty, ol' Cat Stevens--whoops--Yusuf Islam favors ending war and bringing world peace by eliminating everyone who doesn't want to be a Muslim and installing a one-world Islamic Caliphate over us all. Dead people are the most peaceful people in the world, you know. As for the living, they won't have to worry anymore about anyone disturbing the peace, since anyone who dares say anything against their religion of peace will soon be made permanently peaceful via the swift removal of their heads from their bodies with a schimitar. Yes indeedy, Yusuf Islam could sure teach Al Gore a thing or two about population control!
