The Lyrics

Saudi Arabia executes 47 terrorists including Shi'ite cleric Nimr al-Nimr sparking violent protests in Tehran and masses attacking the Saudi Embassy with fire bombs! Threats of escalation abound.
Shi'ite cleric had one desire
And it wasn't to become a matyr
Don't you know that when push comes to shove
The Iranians have just about enough
Proxy war position
But unexpected execution
Sectarian violence so much alive
Saudi Embassy in Tehran, anger doesn't die
They're burning up

They're burning up, burning up, calls for blood
They're burning up, burning up, calls for blood
They're burning up, want something done
Al-Saud is done!!!

They've given Assad Iranian support
Russians also and who won't abort
Gonna fight Syrian Rebel thugs
ISIS too, but the pressure is tough
F the Sunnis, Abdullah too
Friend to America, F them too
Tehran has missiles new and improved
Saudi oil fields can be torched in a duel
Stop the flow of crude


Oh, yeah!


Saudi Arabia can do what it pleases
Dropping cluster bombs on Yemeni fighters
They think that they can do anything
They bring shame, we bring flames
Set them on fire

Want to fight? Let's go!


(Burning up, calling for blood)
Ooo, yeah, they're burning up (Want to destroy Riyahd)
Ooo, yeah, they're burning up (Calling for blood)
It's on, it's on, they're burning up (Want to kill Al-Saud)
Uh, uh, uh, they'te burning up (Kingdom's not that tough)
Ooo, yeah, they're burning up (Want to develop the Bomb)
It's on, it's on, they're burning up (Calling for blood)
Ooo, yeah, they're burning up (and will never give up)
They're on fire!!!

47 put to death by beheadiings, firing squads! [X3]

Tehran calls for blood (It's no bluff)
Tehran calls for blood (It's no bluff)

[Repeat and Fade]
