The Israeli Election Song
or
The Banana Republic Song:

By Steven Plaut

EHUD (Election Song)
(to the tune of the Banana Boat Song by Harry Belafonte)

Based on a Jamaican folk song

EH HOOD, day EH EH HOOD
Ehud's done and we wan him go home
EH, he say EH, he say EH, he say EH, he say EH, he say EH-ay-ay-HOOD
Ehud's done and we wan him go home

They shoots all night from ole Ramallah
(Ehud's done and we wan him go home)
As all thee night he dance banana
(Ehud's done and we wan him go home)

Come, Mr. Tally Mon, tally me election
Ehud's done and we wan him go home
Come, Mr. Tally Mon, tally the rejection
Ehud's done and we wan him go home

It's six foot, five foot, four foot, FLINCH!
(Daylight come and he still wan't go home)
It's six foot, five foot, four foot, FLINCH!
(Daylight come and he still wan't go home)

A beautiful bunch a'ripe lemmingos
(Ehud's done and we wan him go home)
Hide thee deadly black tanzinos
(Ehud's done and we wan him go home).
