My musical dedication to Michel Aoun, the demanted general!

With a few words alterations (replace “MUSIC” with “SPEECHES” and “YOU’RE” with “YOU WERE”), I dedicate this song to our demented orange general (Micho le demago).

“Roll on thunder, shine on lightning
The days are long and the nights are frightenin’
Nothing matters anyway,
And that’s the hell of it.

Winter comes and the winds blew colder
While some grew wiser, you just grew older
And you never listened anyway,
And that’s the hell of it.

Good for nothing, bad in bed
Nobody likes you and you’re better off dead
Goodbye, we’ve all come to say goodbye (goodbye)
Goodbye (goodbye)
Born defeated, died in vain
Super-destructive, you were hooked on pain
Though your MUSIC lingers on
All of us are glad YOU’RE gone

If I could live my life half as worthlessly as you
I’m convinced that I’d wind up burning too.

Love yourself as you loved no other
Be no man’s fool and be no man’s brother
We’re all born to die alone, you know, that’s the hell of it.

Life’s a game where they’re bound to beat you
And time’s a trick it can turn to cheat you
And we only waste it anyway,
And that’s the hell of it.

Good for nothing, bad in bed
Nobody liked you and you’re better off dead
Goodbye, we’ve all come to say goodbye (goodbye)
Goodbye (goodbye)
Born defeated, died in vain
Super-destructive, you were hooked on pain
And though your MUSIC lingers on
“All of us are glad YOU’RE gone

  1. LOL! It all sounds good, but what’s up with that part of “bad in bed?” Do you have first hand testimony? ;p)
