put the blame on hussein*
a parody of a perennial favorite
by robert a. melos
3.6.03
humor


When the nuclear plant at Chernobyl had a core meltdown,
they say that destroyed the Russian town.
That’s the story that went around, but here’s the real low-down.
Put the blame on Hussein, boys! Put the blame on Hussein!
Saddam Hussein blew a fuse, when he heard some bad news,
that temper tantrum cause the plutonium rods to fuse.
So you can put the blame on Hussein, boys! Put the blame on Hussein!

When they had the hurricane in ol’ Florida, back in nineteen and ninety-two,
they said ol’ mother nature was worked up, and into a rage she flew.
That’s the story that went around, but here’s the real low-down.
Put the blame on Hussein, boys! Put the blame on Hussein!
One night Saddam Hussein gave a really long speech,
that made the wind blow for weeks and weeks.
So you can put the blame on Hussein, boys! Put the blame on Hussein!

Remember the ice storm in the Northeast, in nineteen ninety-six?
They say everything was shutdown tight, and folks were in a fix.
That’s the story that went around, but here’s the real low-down.
Put the blame on Hussein, boys! Put the blame on Hussein!
Saddam Hussein ordered a hit in such an ice-cold tone,
it turned the Northeast into a frigid zone.
So you can put the blame on Hussein, boys! Put the blame on Hussein!

There once was a shooting in the Middle East, down near the Gaza Strip.
Folks were puttin’ the blame on a Palestinian by the name of Arafat.
That’s the story that went around, but here’s the real low-down.
Put the blame on Hussein, boys! Put the blame on Hussein!
Saddam Hussein took a shot at a camel’s rump,
but that bullet ricocheted off the camel’s hump.
So you can put the blame on Hussein, boys! Put the blame on Hussein!

Oh yeah, you can put the blame on Hussein, boys! Put the blame on Hussein!


*Original words and music to Put The Blame On Mame, made famous in the film Gilda, by Allan Roberts and Doris Fisher.
