“Egyptian Revolution” by Rick London c2011 To The Tune Of The Beatles “Revolution”

February 13, 2011

For my wife Lee Hiller-London

Egypt had a revolution,
Mubarek had to go,
Order of a new world,

As they formed the revolution,

Soliman proved he was no pro. Arm Wrestling by Londons Times Cartoons (Click To Enlarge)
facebook & Twitter helped you change the world,
You pulled it off without firing a gun,
There’s no plagues, locusts or droughts
It was in Tahrir Square all night
Only Muslim Brotherhood may try to cause blight.

The army dropped their ammunition,
And get a billion more ya know,
Hamas doesn’t stand a chance,
Algeria, Syria & Gaza on the run,
All Israel’s foes,

Zuckerberg Vs Mubarek (Click To Enlarge)

But now their emperors wear no clothes.
Now Israel & Egypt has a lot of money,
They’ve dropped all their hate,
Syria, Yemen, & Algeria better circumnavigate
Just remember facebook can bite you with its bytes,
Israel & U.S. was nervous for just one night,
Cairo is safe!

Ah, ah, ah, ah, oy…  yeah,

Mubarek: No Evil Here. Move Along Kids (Click To Enlarge)

You’re writing an Egyptian Constitution,
Drinking diet coke and eating Cheetos,
First one ever on a laptop on a bed,
Is Mubarek in an institution?
He’d be better off ya know,
Now you see he’s not so thoroughbred,
Can’t ya see Mohamed ElBaradei was late to lead the show,

Google’s Wael Ghonim is much better anyhow

The Constitution’s sacked, my rights are gone,

The X-ray machine makes my boxers look like thongs,
Oh God I hope that’s not a pimple on my thigh.
They’ve see right through everything I’ve worn,
No more lax rules, a perverted culture is born,
Enough radiation to make Goliath die.

The TSA Agent & I don’t share the same esprit.
Have no idea if he wants to make whoopie,
Nonetheless, he’s now massaging my toes.
I’m grievin’ on a jet plane,
With total strangers that sinned,
What is this some flying pole dance show?
I’m ready to leave but security’s going downtown
My neurosis I’d like to drown,
With Nude Vodka, but they’ve already seen my everything,

Their Xray machine show’s I’m a Jew,
It’s taking hours, they’re still not through,
They’ve  touched so much, I expect a wedding ring.

All this foreplay is not for me,
Embarrassing, my kidneys are filled with pee,
I guess I’ll stand here, and just go,
Then I’ll be grievin’ on a jet plane,
Now they’re friskin’ me for a bobby pin,
Oh Gross, this guard’s in afterglow.

Guitar Solo

Now I know I’m coming unglued,
Can’t remember if I removed that secret tatoo
Here comes the scent of radioactive decay,
Not made of steel on the screen are my buns,
While I’m here remove these kidney stones,
Don’t touch my junk, is all I have to say.

So if you kiss me stay miles away from me,
Don’t even think of waiting for me,
You’ll lose an ear just like Vince Van Gogh,
Cause I’m grievin’ on a jet plane,
Not going back to that inequity den,
I hope you stepped in where I go.

I’m grievin’ on a jet plane,
Pre takeoff’s such a sin,
One is touching much too slow.

“12 Gauge Shotguns In National Parks” by Rick London (Sung to Chicago’s Saturday In The Park)

March 3, 2010

12-Gauge Shotguns In National Parks” (by Rick London c2010) to the tune of Chicago’s “Saturday In The Park)

Dedicated to my DF/Love Lee Hiller who has a petition to keep loaded firearms out of National Parks which will be presented to the President 7 Congress. Please take a few moments to sign it. CLICK HERE TO SIGN.

12 gauge shotguns now legal in National Parks,
Face to face or even drive-by
Loaded shotguns in National Parks
NRA asked & Obama complied.
Will you get pinged by a zooming missile zing?
A Dick Cheney wet dream.
A farewell to life song.
Eicay varee’, eisee’ nardee’,
Where’s my case of Schlitz? (belch)
The one packing heat is sublime
Do we need semi-automatics to keep the beavers damned?

Now we’re safe from dawn until dark,
Now we’re safe from butterflies, or chipmunks that are on the sly.
Noah sailed on his ark,
The animals were all his allies,
People always smiled in the valley of Hot Springs,
The new laws a bit too bizarre,
The human is the only species here that mauls,
Bring a sick bag before I hurl,
Quick duck there’s a bullet,
How will our furry friends act with this new slime,
In my yard gun play..whose gonna pay?

Sloe gin guzzlers will turn my forest into a roadkill cafe,
I never thought I’d be betrayed by my home, the USA.
Ol’ Chevy trucks riding mountains with dual exhausts,
All is fair game at our cost, crow or doe.

So get out of the park, before it gets dark,
It’s bound to light up like Fourth Of July.
No more funny days in the park,
Just our wildlife with a bullseye mark.
The park is our back yard,
But he’s sick and wants it, really wants it,
His gun is so phallic,
There’s long been a place in hell for those who commit this crime,

Please stay out of my backyard and keep your gun at home,

I might not be as nice as Nurse Ratchett. Can you dig it?
