Song about Abdelbaset al-Megrahi

Submitted by on August 26, 2009 – 4:02 pmNo Comment

kaScots Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill has come under fire for the release of Abdelbaset al-Megrahi on compassionate grounds, a premise enshrined in Scots Law.

In plumbers’ style we recognise this event through the medium of song.

To the tune of the old Dean Martin favourite ‘amore’…

In Tripoli where saltires swing
When east meets west here’s what they say

When the plane in the sky gets blown way up high
That’s a story
When the bomber is caught then it seems that he’s not
That’s a story
Trade deals will boil cash-for-oil, cash-for-oil, cash-for-oil
And a bottle of Stella
Bleeding hearts will say set him free, set him free
Like Nelson Mandela

When there’s a heated debate about his dodgy prostate
That’s a story
When the bomb’s made in Iran and they’ve got the wrong man
That’s a story
When he’s sent home to die but yet still he ends up
Covered in glory
Scuzza me, but you see, back in old Tripoli
That’s a story

When Gadaffi and Blair have a desert secret to share
That’s a story
When the old FBI try to spin us such an obvious lie
That’s a story
Facts are chiels that winna ding, winna-ding-ding
Like a closed umbrella
The cancer they say just won’t go away, won’t go away
Much worse than rubella

When there’s no global passion for Scottish compassion
That’s a story
When the bold SNP decide to set an innocent man free
That’s a story
But although he’s gone home he must always
Memento mori
Scuzza me, but you see, back in old Tripoli
That’s the story
