Parody Lyrics by Marcy Shaffer

Arranged by Greg Hilfman

PARTITION.
PARTITION.
PARTITION! 
PARTITION. 
PARTITION.
PARTITION! 
 
WHO GREW TO SEE 
THEIR MISERY TO BE A 
KEY TO GUARANTEE A 
REBORN BABYLON? 
AND WHO NOW AGREE A 
PEOPLE SHOULD DECREE A 
PANACEA IS IRAN?  
THE SHI'A. 
THE SHI'A. 
PARTITION! 
THE SHI'A. 
THE SHI'A. 
PARTITION! 
 
WHO'D HAVE SHOT 
WHEN SADDAM THOUGHT IT OPPORTUNE: 
A SOLE TYCOON? 
A WHOLE SALOON? 
WHO'D GAVOTTE 
AND THEN GAROTTE 
A HONEYMOON? 
BUT GOT THE WATER RUNNING? 
NIGHT AND NOON!
THE SUNNIS. 
THE SUNNIS. 
PARTITION! 
THE SUNNIS.
THE SUNNIS. 
PARTITION! 
 
WHO'S COUNTED THIRD, BUT MONITORED. 
THEIR WORD A FEARSOME POWER? 
ONCE MURDERED.
WHO'S NOW HEARD WHEN STIRRED? 
TO GIRD.
NOT COWER. 
THE KURDS.
THE KURDS. 
PARTITION! 
THE KURDS.
THE KURDS. 
PARTITION! 
 
WHO'LL HISS AND SMITE DESPITE 
THE BLIGHT THIS DOES INCITE? 
REMISS AND IN A FRIGHT.  
WHO MIGHT NOT QUITE UNITE? 
THE WHITE HOUSE.
THE WHITE HOUSE. 
PARTITION! 
THE WHITE HOUSE. 
THE WHITE HOUSE. 
PARTITION! 

 

 

 

THE SHI'A! 
THE SUNNIS! 
THE KURDS! 
THE WHITE HOUSE! 
PARTITION! 
 
THE SHI'A! 
THE SUNNIS! 
THE KURDS! 
THE WHITE HOUSE! 
PARTITION! 
 
PARTITION. 
PARTITION.
PARTITION! 
PARTITION.
PARTITION.
PARTITION!
