"Reagan Stung the PLO-oh!"

The Lyrics

Resurrected from my Grooveyard of Forgotten Favorites going back to the '80s, in memory of George Michael.
He stung the PLO!
He stung the PLO!

It was a sunny Egyptian day.
Achille Lauro was cruising along her way,
And then some terrorists, they got aboard
And did some acts that the civilized world deplored:
Took all Americans to one side,
Made them played with grenades 'til they cried,
Beat a cripple, shot his head,
Dumped him over, said he had a heart attack instead,

But Reagan stung the PLO-oh,
Though Mubarak said it was a no-no!
Reagan stung the PLO-oh!
Ronnie, he really kicked 'em in the tail!
Reagan stung the PLO-oh!
Yasser Arafat went screaming "Oh, no!"
Reagan stung the PLO-oh!
And sent the bastards to jail!
He kicked 'em in the ta-a-a-a-il!
Yeah! Yeah!

Mubarak said, "You can come ashore,
Then we can fly you home so you can do some more!"
But Ronnie found out what they planned to do,
And told the Navy, "Don't let those punks get through!"
Thinking they'd be in Tunisia that night,
The terrorists boarded and Egypt Air flight.
Navy Tomcats blocked their way,
Lined 'em up and said "Go ahead! Make my day!"

Reagan stung the PLO-oh,
Though Mubarak said it was a no-no!
Reagan stung the PLO-oh!
Ronnie, he really kicked 'em in the tail!
Reagan stung the PLO-oh!
Yasser Arafat went screaming "Oh, no!"
Reagan stung the PLO-oh!
And sent the bastards to jail!
He kicked 'em in the ta-a-a-a-il!
Yeah! Yeah, Baby!

He stung the PLO!
He stung the PLO!

The crew, staring missiles in their face,
Landed in Sicily at a NATO base.
Terrorists thought they'd go all the way home,
Ended up locked in a dingy, dark prison in Rome!

Reagan stung the PLO-oh,
Though Mubarak said it was a no-no!
Reagan stung the PLO-oh!
Ronnie, he really kicked 'em in the tail!
Reagan stung the PLO-oh!
Yasser Arafat went screaming "Oh, no!"
Reagan stung the PLO-oh!
And sent the bastards to jail!
Reagan stung the PLO-oh!
Yasser Arafat, he went on screaming and wailing "Oh, no!"
Got the bastards!
Boom! Boom! Boom!
For those of you too young to remember it, this song was in reference to an incident in October 1985 when the Italian cruise ship ACHILLE LAURO was hijacked by Palestinian Liberation Organization operatives off the coast of Egypt while on a Mediterranean cruise. American passengers were separated from the others and, over the course of the hijacking, the terrorists shot and killed an elderly wheelchair-bound American and threw his corpse overboard. Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak agreed to give the terrorists safe passage to their headquarters in Tunisia in exchange for the release of the cruise ship and passengers. US intelligence learned of the specifics of the arrangement and the Egyptian airliner was intercepted by US Navy F-14 Tomcats and diverted to Sicily.

I remember Leon Klinghoffer who was killed and tossed over the side. A movie was made about this called "Voyage of Terror" in 1990. 555!
