Concerning Assuagement

I really like the Great ones adaptation of that crappy Umbrella song so heres a homage to you oh knifing king
Hey There Jameelah
Sung to the Tune of Hey There Delilah by Plain White T's
Hey there Jameelah
What's it like in Baghdad City?
I'm a thousand miles away
But girl, tonight I feel so shitty
Yes I do
The whole world faced its back towards you
I swear it's true
Hey there Jameelah
Don't you worry about the ordnance
and the cluster bombs are only
for your freedom I assure you
Close your eyes
the threat of WMD’s were our disguise
to capitalize
Oh it's oil I want to see
Oh it's oil I want to see
Oh it's oil I want to see
Oh it's oil I want to see
Oil I want to see
Hey there Jameelah
I know times are getting hard
But just believe me, girl
Someday the U.N will step right in and
We'll have it good
We'll have the safety we knew we would
Our war is good
Hey there Jameelah
I've got so much left to do
Invade Iran, Sudan and the East
To give them democracy
Liberate them all
Even more evil dictators will fall
We'd have it all
Oh it's oil I want to see
Oh it's oil I want to see
Oh it's oil I want to see
Oh it's oil I want to see
A thousand miles seems pretty far
But we’ve got tanks and armoured cars
We’d just nuke you if we had no other way
The world would all be sick of us
and we'll just laugh along because we know
That none of them could stop our show
Jameelah I can promise you
That by the time we get through
The world will never ever be the same
And we’re to blame
Hey there Jameelah
You be good and don't you diss me
Two more years and Iraq will self destruct
And We'll be making history like we do
You'll know it's all cause of GW2
We can do whatever we want to
Hey there Jameelah here's to you
This one's for you
Oh it's oil I want to see
Oh it's oil I want to see
Oh it's oil I want to see
Oh it's oil I want to see
Oil I want to see

anon and takilla. thanks.
takilla - ive done other adaptations (my latest lot can be found here)

http://concerningmjk.blogspot.com/2008/03/concerning-adaptations.html

I did those two months ago

LLO - I actually performed an adaptation of Eminems song without me at the Al Ansaar souk a few years ago - I adapted it to market a youth magazine called Islam ZN. If you want i can post it here in the comments section.

Sunshinegal - thanks. I want to type so much more tonight, but I'd rather not. as it is, yesterday three students were teasing me about 'my beloved' or rather, the person i write about. I enjoy writing so today i wanted to write and write. Are you one of the girls from Saturday?

My mum has an aunty Jameela and an Aunty Boo. we call them jam and boo. They are from the Randaree side of the family so I havent seen them in ages.
