The Kuwaiti SongEdit

The Kuwaiti Song aired in 1992 in series 12. The song is about the first Gulf War and how Kuwait was not as innocent as the US claimed at the time. The accusations came about because the Emir at the time, Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah, declared martial law for three months after the war and forcibly removed 200,000 Palestinians to leave.

LyricsEdit

(Emir Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah)

Let's have fun now
Spitting Image Kuwaiti Song-0

Spitting Image Kuwaiti Song-0

Kuwaiti Song

Ruling in the sun now

Ruling the Kuwaitis with me... Ha Ha!

(All)

Gee, it's great in Kuwait

We've got sun, sand and plenty of chicks now

(Backing)

Plenty of chicks now

Plenty of chicks

(All)

We got a whole lot of oil on the beach

So we're surfing on slicks now

(Backing)

Surfing on slicks now

Surfing on slicks now

(All)

Uncle Sam's gone away

Now we know we can do as we please now

(Backing)

Do as we please now

Do as we please

(All)

So we torture Palestinians in jail

And get rid of the keys now

Oh, it's great to be free

In our democracy

Hands up all those who don't agree.. Woah!

Now some folks they say 

That it all seems a little unfair now

(Backing)

A little unfair now

A little unfair

(All)

But we're still getting rich

So the truth is we really don't care now

(Backing)

Really don't care now

Really don't care

(All)

For our buddies and us

The Gulf War was a total success now

(Backing)

Total success now

Total success

(All)

Though Sadam's still in power and Kuwait

(Camel)

Has ended up in a mess now

(All)

Still it's great to be free

In our democracy

One man one vote

(Emir Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah)

And that man is me... Hehehehe!
