The Lyrics

Based on an actual misheard lyric on this site. Told from the point of view of a Muslim.
When I was young
I always studied the Koran
And I learned how to be a man
I'm in Iran

Now I am grown
I wanna go to paradise
And I know I won't be alone
Won't that be nice?

I'll bomb myself
Don't wanna live. I'll bomb myself
For Jihad
I'll bomb myself
Don't wanna live. I'll bomb myself
For Jihad

Hard to be sure
Just how to get to Heaven's door.
Think I should crash a plane or four?
My glory's sure.

Five for pacing, absolutely. Five for "How Funny" not because it's funny, but because it's got a grim profundity. Five for "Overall" because it is a tightly-written, self-contained package of parody and pathos. Well done.

Wow, I gotta second Johnny on everything that he said. Really good and much deeper than most of the stuff on this site.
