The Lyrics

had fun with this learnt a lot about ghandi! for chris
Ghandi

I remember in my life
You was mentioned once or twice
goosey goosey man
I think you was hindu
whites were always bright
I bet that you used

persil
almost every day
pictures of you pass my way
ignorant am i
No one had told me
I never realized
you wasn’t ben kingsley, oh Ghandi

Well, you fasted for days without shakin, must ave sucked on a mint oh Ghandi
Didn’t help that you neighbour kept bakin
coz I need you today. Oh, Ghandi

at London university
a barrister you trained to be
meditation fuelled your inner shacra
some people called you bald , I called you mahatma oh Ghandi
Well, you always stayed bald without shavin
You got hitched at 13, oh Ghandi
forget steak it was spuds you were craving
And I miss you today, oh Ghandi

You were bald and short
A diamond geeza
In top trumps you drew
With mother thereza oh Ghandi

Well, you fasted for days without shakin, must ave sucked on a mint oh Ghandi
Didn’t help that you neighbour kept bakin
coz I need you today. Oh, Ghandi

Well, when asked once if you was a hindu, this is what you replied oh Ghandi
Yes im christian and muslim and buddhist and also jew

You paced this song very well! Great tribute to 'ol Mahatma Ghandi! A very inspirational icon as well! I'll gladly give him 555 wigs for his bald head (just kidding, don't mean no offense). OK, here's some inspirational 5's for this one!

A lighhearted tibute but not mean-spirited. I especialin like the "sucked on a mint" and "kept bakin" lines.

Sorry for the shaky typing. That should be "tribute" and "especially" of course. Getting groggy. :-D

What do I think of Western civilization? I think it would be a very good idea & this parody is part of it Especially loved 'Well, you always stayed bald without shavin'' :D
