Ramadan song

I just found this Ramadan song by Iranian comedian Tissa Hami and I had to share because it’s just so funny:

Ramadan song by Iranian comedian Tissa Hami

 

The Ramadan Song

(to the tune of Adam Sandler’s “Hanukah Song”)

Lyrics by Tissa Hami

Put your turban on, here comes Ramadan

So much fun-adan to celebrate Ramadan

Ramadan is a tradition everlasting

Instead of one day of presents, we have 30 days of fasting

When you feel like the only kid in town without a menorah or tree

Here’s a list of people who are Muslim just like you and me

Mohammad Ali prays toward Mecca

So does Aladdin, and my sister’s best friend Becca

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar gives praise to Allah

So does much of Africa but not Nelson Mandela

When you’re down on your knees, tired of praying on the floor

Remember you were once joined by Tupac Shakur

Who needs the Dreidel Song or Winter Wonderland?

When you can sing along with the American Taliban (he converted)

Put your turban on, it’s time for Ramadan

Jerry Lewis has a telethon, it’s time to celebrate Ramadan

Barack Obama, not a Muslim

If he converted, it would really, really puzzle ’em

Some people think that Muslims are heathens

But go on, admit it, you love Cat Stevens

Mike Tyson is Muslim, so’s Ahmad Rashad

Put them together and you’re ready for jihad

When you can’t have a drink at the local beer hall

Just think it was a Muslim who discovered alcohol

So find something to vomit on, it’s time to celebrate Ramadan

Hope I don’t get sent to the Pentagon, on this lovely lovely Ramadan

I’m glad they caught Saddam-adan, but where’s Osama bin Lade-dan?

If you really really wanna-dan, Have a happy happy happy happy Ramadan!
