The Lyrics

We're looking for Bin Laden, very soon he will be found
I've got a little list, I've got a little list
Of other known offenders who may well be underground
All kinds of terrorists, who never would be missed
There's the rest of Al Quaeda hiding in Afghanistan
And here and there the remnants of the former Taleban
The guy who's posting anthrax if we just knew where he was
A laser-guided Tomahawk would show him who's the boss
With smart weapons technology we're sure he'd not be missed
I've got him on the list, I've got him on the list

CHORUS. He's got 'em on the list--he's got 'em on the list;
And they'll none of 'em be missed--they'll none of
'em be missed.

There's other groups who glorify in violent displays
and raise a bloody fist, I've got them on the list
IRA and UDF and other TLAs
not that I'm prejudiced, I just don't think they'd be missed
Any petty warlord who likes driving round in Jeeps
With great big ****ing guns on top that say "I play for keeps"
And Christians who kill Muslims, and Muslims who kill Jews,
Whoever kills religiously, it doesn't matter whose
And anyone who thinks that someone else should not exist
I've got 'em on the list, I've got 'em on the list

CHORUS. He's got 'em on the list--he's got 'em on the list;
And they'll none of 'em be missed--they'll none of
'em be missed.

There's the madman with the moustache, we've dealt with him before
He really makes me pissed, I've got him on the list
We cannot check his arsenal, he may be making more
A bio-terrorist--he's on my chopping list
Northern Irish MP-types who think that it is fun
Dabbling in politics while sitting on a gun
The government of Syria, and Israel as well
Who talk from both their faces, well they all can go to Hell
All those who espouse violence - I think you get my gist
I don't think they'd be missed -no, I'm sure they'd not be missed


CHORUS. You may put 'em on the list--you may put 'em on the list;
And they'll none of 'em be missed--they'll none of
'em be missed!

Missed this comment... a mikado (techically "The" Mikado, as there can only ever be one at a time) was what Westerners called the Japanese Emperor; though the name, which literally translates as "Exalted Gate", is a bit dated and not used any more. In the context of this song, however, The Mikado is an operetta by Gilbert and Sullivan.

The author clearly had a broad knowledge of the scary state of the world, and this parody is worth reading several times; it has some humor, but a parody really need not be funny to succeed. Perhaps the rating system should include such features as information content, maturity of thought and expression, and lack of repetitiveness, where this parody would rank very high (it even has phrases rhyming with 'list' for variety). A superb job!

Thanks, Barry :-)

This is incredibly clever! And even though the "madman with the moustache" didn't have WMDs, he was certainly a bio-terrorist. I only wish you had a link to the performance of this piece.

Thanks, Donna - no link to a performance of this one as (like a sadly high percentage of my other parodies) there is no performance to link to: this parody has never been performed.

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