The (Egyptian Muslim) Brotherhood of Man

(apologies to How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying)

Now, you may like the Pope, my friend
Or you may study Torah
While others sit beneath a tree
Or yell, "Faith and begorrah"

Still some prefer the Hindu Gods
Or handling a snake
But, really, there's just one great group
So, please make no mistake

There's a Muslim Brotherhood of Man
An Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood of Man
Sure, we may give some pause
With our Sharia laws
The Muslim Brotherhood of Man

Our ideology is swell
We really hope you'll be our biggest fan
And should some chick rebel
Trust us, she'll pay in hell
The Muslim Brotherhood of Man

Mubarak was an autocrat
The country grew annoyed
And while the world was watching
We gladly filled the void

Now, Egypt needed discipline
The clerics knew the score
The White House didn't say a word
But, "Thank you, sirs, please more!"

The Muslim Brotherhood of Man
The U.S. holding out its mighty hand
Yes, we've still got it made
With their financial aid
Paid to the Muslim Brotherhood of Man

Now that Morsi's fallen
All the people callin'
And Obama's stallin'
Oh, brother!

Maybe democracy's come 'round
That military coup was not our plan
Oh, we won't make a sound
We'll just go underground
The Muslim Brotherhood of Man

The Muslim Brotherhood of Man
Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood of Man
We'll all wait patiently
For the ninth century
The Muslim Brotherhood of Man!
