​Ayatollah

This song is by The Swingers and appears on the album Practical Jokers (1981) and on the album Counting The Beat (1982).

The Shah of Iran, he ran from terror
People's revolution taking over th land
It wasn't always like that
There's a new superman - Ayatollah Khomeini
Put a spell on Iran - a dark eye genie
Oh Ayatollah man - he rules the way
He's got a head the size of Hitler
And they call him Ayatollah
He's just another Mussolini
And his name is Khomeini
I'm singing
Ayah, Aya-tollah Khomeini
Ayah, Aya-tollah Khomeini
Ayah, Aya-tollah Khomeini
Ay-oh-oh tollah Khomeini
Aye-oh-aye
He does what he does in the name of religion
There are no answers, there are no questions
Makes his own rules, just another dictator
A game for fools of the gambling nature
Oh Ayatollah man - he rules the way
He's got a head the size of Hitler
And they call him Ayatollah
He's just another Mussolini
And his name is Khomeini
I'm singing
Ayah, Aya-tollah Khomeini
Ayah, Aya-tollah Khomeini
Ayah, Aya-tollah Khomeini
Ay-oh-oh tollah Khomeini
Aye-oh-aye
Ayatollah, Ayatollah, Ayatollah, Khomeini!
Kho-kho-kho-meini
He's got a head the size of Hitler
And the call him Ayatollah
He's just another Admiral Tojo
And this is how the song goes
Singing ayah, Aya-tollah (etc...)
