Wasn't there an old song by the POLICE called "Bombs away in old Bombay"?

How Ironic is THAT??

Should they ban the song now, or what?

    Yes, there was. But there are a lot of songs that describe occurances and historical connections. Check out the link.

    And No, no song should be banned any more than any speech should be censored by anything but common sense (like yelling "Fire" in a crowded theater).

    Bombs Away - Police Written by Stewart Copeland

    The general scratches his belly and thinks

    His pay is good but his officers stink

    Guerilla girl, hard and sweet

    A military man would love to meet

    The President looks in the mirror and speaks

    His shirts are clean but his country reeks

    Unpaid bills, in Afghanistan hills

    Bombs away

    But we're O.K.
