"Atomic Bomb"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

As the title suggests, this is a testament to the destructive power of the atomic bomb. Hopefully, the ones dropped on Hiroshima & Nagasaki will be the only ones that have been dropped on cities. As usual, enjoy the parody. DKTOS?
Atomic bomb,
Destructive power from human palms.
A-ha, those pictures tell
Humanity about what is hell.

And on that day,
When they dropped that thing from Enola Gay,(1)
The-he Atomic Bomb
Caused much destruction & it smashed the calm.

That big fat man,
And that little boy ransacked Japan.(2)
They sent a message to the entire world:
“Behold! A brand new world has been unfurled!”

Atomic bomb,
I’m forbidden to own one by my mom.
Be-cause she is afraid,
I’m gonna blow it with a hand grenade.

[instrumental solo]

Atomic bomb,
Causes destruction & will smash the calm.
A-ha, Atomic bomb,
Have you ever been to Vietnam?

That big fat man,
And that little boy ransacked Japan.
They sent a message to the entire world:
“Behold! A brand new world has been unfurled!”

Atomic bomb,
I’m forbidden to own one by my mom.
Be-cause she is afraid,
I’m gonna blow it with a hand grenade.
Cultural Notes:

1-The Enola Gay was the B-29 bomber that dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan.

This is a very appropriate song parody, since Enola Gay in itself is about the Atom Bomb (only not so blatana).

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
