It's Not Easy Being Mean

With Iran growing more isolated by the day, and the threats against it increasing, I thought it would be appropriate to say a few words in support of its much-maligned president, Mr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Because, behind the venom and the arrogance, I mean way behind, I think there's a good-hearted little boy, who only wants to be loved and understood. And how awful can a guy who walks around with a green aura over his head really be? He may not be nice; he may even be downright mean, but if he were a little less shy, I'm sure he'd tell us ...

♫ It's not that easy being mean;
Snarling at Jews, and bagging hostages at US embassies.
When I think I'd rather be eloquent, or tactful,
or improve the cinema of my country.

It's not easy being mean,
Just another youthful spokesman for a senile oligarchy.
And people tend to want to bomb you
Cause you're not making sunny speeches, or locking lips
With the right guys.

But mean's the pathway to peace!
And mean can be brotherly, and Mohammed-like.
And mean can be big like an H-bomb,
Or important like a hidden imam,
Or tall like a hanging tree!

When mean is all there is to be
It could make you pause to reconsider
If you want Bush to eat you for dinner,
But, I am mean and it'll do fine, it's Revolutionary!
And it's better than being Isra-e-li. ♫


In case you don't remember how the original goes, here it is:

It's not that easy being green;
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves.
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold...
or something much more colorful like that.

It's not easy being green.
It seems you blend in with so many other ord'nary things.
And people tend to pass you over
Cause you're not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water
Or stars in the sky.

But green's the color of Spring.
And green can be cool and friendly-like.
And green can be big like an ocean,
Or important like a mountain,
Or tall like a tree.

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why?
Wonder, I am green and it'll do fine, it's beautiful!
And I think it's what I want to be.

I thought that the madness that is contemporary Iran wouldn't produce any chuckles, but I've got to hand it to you, you made me laugh. Great pic of pres. Imreallymad btw. If only he would spend the rest of his life doing that.
 
Thanks, amishav. Once the bombs start flying, I'm sure he will spend the rest of his life doing that.

LOL, what an awesome song. Love your site, by the way.
 
תודה רבה!
