The Lyrics

Abu Qatadr - a man at the sick extreme of Islam... someone who says that it's great for young Muslims to kill themselves while killing innocent bystanders, yet for some reason (even though it's obviously such a great thing to do) has never tried it himself. Maybe just a little hypocritical, you might think.
They blew up the Underground
Such silly killing in
London Town
Undergound - Kaboom it goes
What's achiev-ed? Nobody knows

Reckon you should take the blame
For killing done in Allah's name
Allah's will? Is that his desire?
You say it is, I say you're a liar

Abu Abu Qatadr
You think it's good to be baddr
Abu, Abu Qatadr
Abu Qatadr

If you were shot, well I wouldn't cry
Because you send young men to die
If this bombing is Allah's way
Why don't you blow yourself today?

Yes, you Abu Qatadr
You mad fanatic jihaddr
Abu, Abu Qatadr
Abu Qatadr

I see the manic look in your eye
I see manic men sent to die
Reckon Allah will realize
It's never you, it's someone else who dies

Why not take a look outside
What good has come from those who died?
If suicide is what you teach
Why don't you practise what you preach

Et tu, Abu Qatadr?
Your morals just like Darth Vadr
Screw you, Abu Qatadr
Abu Qatadr

Men like you should take the blame
For killing done in Allah's name
Allah's will? For this you conspire?
Like Hell it is, I say you're a liar

Blowing up, don't understand
Ain't no Nirvana for folks who're damned
Blowing up, don't understand
Ain't no Nirvana for folks who're damned
Blowing up, don't understand
Ain't no Nirvana for folks who're damned

And what's amazing is that there are suckers who actually buy-into this guy's bullshit. They say freedom of speech ends at yelling "Fire!" in a crowded theater ... well ... what's THAT clown been doing?

545, though I think that parodies of this type need an overall mark higher than 5.

Your usual literary skill applied to an important issue. Keep it up, Phil, inspiring work.

Awesome job; great stuff. Especially loved some of the chorus rhymes like "jihaddr" and "Darth Vadr".
