MM: Allahpundit’s post on the New York Times’ article about the jihadi’s guide to etiquette inspired me to rewrite The Fray’s “How to Save A Life.” Bryan did the rock-star solo vocals. I’m on keyboard. Here are the lyrics. Sing along:

“How to Take a Life”
The Jihadi’s Guide to Etiquette
The Ventilators/HotAir.com
Michelle Malkin and Bryan Preston

Step one they say we need to talk
We balk–they say, “sit down it’s just a talk”
They smile politely as they shill
For those who want our blood to spill
Some sort of claim to divine right
They’ll slay us left and slay us right
Sura Nine Five of the Koran
Slay idolaters wherev’r you can

If you say something wrong, you’ll lose your head
Somewhere along in Osama’s camps
Jihadis train and pray all day and night
‘Til they learn how to take a life

They teach their kids Allah knows best
And soon you’ll swear He does know best
Martyrdom in His defense
Approves of killing innocents
Lay down a fatwa pick up a sword
Shave off your beard before you board
And pray to Allah he hears you
And pray to Allah he hears you

If you say something wrong, you’ll lose your head
Somewhere along in Osama’s camps
Jihadis train and pray all day and night
‘Til they learn how to take a life

Convert or die there’s one more choice
Submit to them, give up your voice
Infidels! What is your path?
Sharia law, a new footbath
Allah with virgins does await
The founding of the caliphate
With rockets and with shoebombs
On orders from their imams.

If you say something wrong, you’ll lose your head
Somewhere along in Osama’s camps
Jihadis train and pray all day and night
‘Til they learn how to take a life

If you say something wrong, you’ll lose your head
Somewhere along in Osama’s camps
Jihadis train and all day and night
‘Til they learn how to take a life
How to take a life

If you say something wrong, you’ll lose your head
Somewhere along in Osama’s camps
Jihadis train and pray all day and night
‘Til they learn how to take a life

If you say something wrong, you’ll lose your head
Somewhere along in Osama’s camps
Jihadis train and pray all day and night
‘Til they learn how to take a life
How to take a life
