The Lyrics

The U.S. and Arabia
Share a growing feeling of hysteria
Conditioned to respond to terror threats
From diabolical leeches in the parapets
Mr. Laden said, "We will bury you"
But few subscribe to this point of view
Cause they're still all humans like me and you
Yeah, the Muslims love their children too

How can I save my teenage boy
From Halliburton's deadly ploy?
There is such hypocrisy in these events
While soldiers die on the political fence
We're stuck on methodology
Regardless of our theology
The grieving must not continue
I know the Muslims love their children too

This is a deplorable precedent
Iraq at odds with the lives of its residents
They weren't searching for a tenable war
Telling lies we don't believe anymore
Mr. Rumsfeld said, "We will protect you"
They can't subside on this point of view
But pleading is all they can do
Because the Muslims love their children too

We share the same chronology
Regardless of our theology
What might save us, me and you
Is if the Muslims learn to love the Jews

Wow. This parody seemed to write itself...a well-pointed bit of satire McPhisto. Good job. 555

Well, except for Hamas and Hezbollah and Black September and various lone wolves who blow themselves up and Palestinians who strap bombs to their kids and send them at Israel. But most Arabs love their children! Honest! And that stuff about Muhammed screwing a nine-year-old was just a typo.

Beautifully put - especially those last four lines.

Our God was no slouch in being a little weird, too, CAIR--what sort of deity forces men to cut off their own foreskins?

Beautiful song. Catches well the tone of the original. While not "funny", certainly witty and/or thought-provoking. 555.

Wonderfully done. The OS came out at a time when Reagan was calling the USSR the "Evil Empire" and generally doing a good job of demonizing the Soviet Union and everyone therein. Sting's song was an appropriate infusion of sanity. If only this parody had a similar effect on the Middle East!

Thank you, Agrimorfee, Phil, Susanna, and MasonR. :) By the way, Syncronos did a similar version of this song about two years ago. Here is the link: http://www.amiright.com/parody/90s/sting1.shtml

You Crusader pig devil Satan! How dare you question the wisdom of your stateside dispenser of Muslim wisdom? Pay attention to us, not those Palestinian synagogue-burners and Saudi hijackers! You uncircumcised dog! You've got a Pamela Lee poster on your bathroom wall, don't you? Admit it!

Um... CAIR... Are you having a seizure or something? Should I break out a spoon?
