The Lyrics

The Ferengi got their asses kicked eight hundred years ago
At Horns of Hattin Saladin let his troops make the show
Great Saladin was general true, and chivalrous to the boot
Today it seems the only thing those people care is loot

Now Saddam had delusions of the glory days of past
When he started messing with the West his reign was not to last
His cronies begun blowing bombs and cutting up the throats
of their very own countrymen just as if they were goats

There ain't no Saracens like Saladin no more
Killing kids and women is their image of the war
And cutting throats of civilians is nothing to adore -
There ain't no Saracens like Saladin no more

Now our dear buddy Osama has also joined the game
It seems this snake has lost his fangs but he is still insane
Al-Qaida no more dares to bomb the troops of USA
but targets helpless civilians and women on their way

Those Saracens of days gone by would hang their heads in shame
if they did see their sons today no more have courage same
They're only good on slitting throats and screamings and the rants
'gainst any real soldiers they will only soil their pants

There ain't no Saracens like Saladin no more
Killing kids and women is their image of the war
And cutting throats of civilians is nothing to adore -
There ain't no Saracens like Saladin no more

Al-Qaida has a problem dear on credibility
their cause seem to suffer from a grave inanity
It seems they've lost their cutting edge and only thing they can
is bombing their own countrymen and be slain to their last man

I've never held a wife-beating man in high esteem
and while such consideration racistic might seem
cowardice has never been a question of the race
- those suckers simply don't dare meeting real men face to face

There ain't no Saracens like Saladin no more
Killing kids and women is their image of the war
And cutting throats of civilians is nothing to adore -
There ain't no Saracens like Saladin no more

There ain't no Saracens like Saladin no more
Killing kids and women is their image of the war
And cutting throats of civilians is nothing to adore -
There ain't no Saracens like Saladin no more

Very good title and first verse, and the rest was good, too.

An excellent observation of the situation in the Middle East. Very well done.
