A Catchy Tune

 

Boycott Israel, if you think that’s just
But unless you have a double standard you must
Also boycott the rest of the nations
With allegations of human rights violations
We’re not perfect but if you think we’re the worst
First take a look at the rest of the earth
Don’t pick and choose to pick on the Jews
Pick up the paper and read the news
Boycott North Korea I don’t think you’ll see a
Country in the world that could be un-freer
Boycott China, let’s not forget
That they stole the whole country of Tibet
Boycott Japan slaughtering thousands
Of helpless innocent whales and dolphins
Boycott Vietnam where they choose to use
Drug addicts as slave to shell cashews
Boycott Cambodia, grabbing up land
Five million acres from the poor man’s hand
Boycott Thailand for shutting the door
And deporting refugees back to the war
Boycott Burma, don’t let your cash slip
Into the grip of that military dictatorship
Boycott India, women can’t escape
When the government officials are guilty of rape
Boycott Pakistan, crazy country
Where they execute people for blasphemy
And boycott Afghanistan opium land
Where poppy fields stand in the Taliban’s hand

 

And boycott Israel, if you think that’s just
But unless you have a double standard you must
Also boycott the rest of the nations
With allegations of human rights violations
We’re not perfect but if you think we’re the worst
First take a look at the rest of the earth
Don’t pick and choose to pick on the Jews
Pick up the paper and read the news

Boycott Syria their government’s killing
Thousands of innocent, unarmed, civilians
Boycott Iraq make them change the laws
That lock up and torture people without cause
Boycott Iran with the greatest rate
Of execution out of every other state
Boycott Turkey because they’ve always denied
And lied about the Armenian Genocide
Boycott Turkmenistan, where the only media
That you ever see is what the president’ll feed to ya
Boycott Uzbekistan, government’s rotten
Enslaving children to harvest cotton
Boycott Russia because every year
More Muslims mysteriously disappear
Boycott Ukraine, where the politicians
Lock up the opposition, so there’s no competition
Boycott Belarus, president’s got to go
You know those elections are just for show
And boycott Germany, cause there’s no reparation
For murdering half the Jewish population

And boycott Israel, if you think that’s just
But unless you have a double standard you must
Also boycott the rest of the nations
With allegations of human rights violations
Not perfect but if you think we’re the worst
First take a look at the rest of the earth
Don’t pick and choose to pick on the Jews
Pick up the paper and read the news

Boycott Sudan, the Darfur genocide
Where hundreds of thousands have already died
Boycott Egypt and don’t let that narrow
Minded president keep acting like Pharaoh
Boycott Saudi Arabian oppression
Of women getting beat up, treated like possessions
Boycott Bahrain police brutality
Against the Shi’ites by the Sunni Monarchy
Boycott Yemen make them stop the obscene
Execution of juveniles under eighteen
Boycott Eritrea national slavery
Where they work for free indefinitely
Boycott the Congo, doing terrible things
To sell blood diamond engagement rings
Boycott Zimbabwe you’ll find all kinds
Of torture behind those government mines
Boycott South Africa, make them pay
For the hundreds of women raped everyday
Boycott Ivory Coast, sound the alarm
There’s thousands of slaves on those cocoa farms

And boycott Israel, if you think that’s just
But unless you have a double standard you must
Also boycott the rest of the nations
With allegations of human rights violations
We’re not perfect but if you think we’re the worst
First take a look at the rest of the earth
Don’t pick and choose to pick on the Jews
Pick up the paper and read the news

Boycott Chile because they deny
Abortions even if the mother will die
And boycott Brazil where the brutal police
Kill thousands of people to keep the peace
Boycott Venezuela closer inspection
Shows that the socialists stole the election
Boycott Colombia, putting out the lights
Of anyone who fights for union rights
Boycott Ecuador for stealing the lands
Of indigenous people for their corporate plans
And boycott Costa Rica where they’ve applied
So much pesticide, that hundreds have died
Boycott Honduras where a journalist
Gets shot if he writes anything like this
Boycott Mexico in the war on drugs
The military acts like the cartel thugs
Boycott the USA make them pay
For torturing people in Guantanamo bay
And boycott Cuba, but if the government hears
You criticize them, you’ll be locked up for years

Boycott Israel, if you think that’s just
But unless you have double standard you must
Also boycott the rest of the nations
With allegations of human rights violations
We’re not perfect but if you think we’re the worst
First take a look at the rest of the earth
Don’t pick and choose to pick on the Jews
Pick up the paper and read the news
