Party in the C.I.A
(Weird Al Yankovic)

Dall’album “Polka Party!”‎


Allegra canzoncina di Natale da “Weird Al” Yankovic, quello – ve lo ricordate? – che fece, tra le ‎altre, la parodia di “Smells Like Teen Spirit” di Kurt Cobain e soci intitolandola “Smells Like ‎Nirvana”, corredandola con una clip surreale che impazzava su MTV…‎

Questa “Christmas at Ground Zero” invece non piacque molto all’amministrazione Reagan e fu di ‎conseguenza censurata da molte stazioni radio americane.‎
It's Christmas at ground zero
There's music in the air
The sleigh bells are ringing and the carolers are singing
While the air raid sirens blare

It's Christmas at ground zero
The button has been pressed
The radio just let us know
That this is not a test

Everywhere the atom bombs are dropping
It's the end of all humanity
No more time for last-minute shopping
It's time to face your final destiny

It's Christmas at ground zero
There's panic in the crowd
We can dodge debris while we trim the tree
Underneath the mushroom cloud

Ronald Reagan:
Well, the big day is only a few hours away now.
I'm sure you're all looking forward to it
as much as we are.

You might hear some reindeer on your rooftop
Or Jack Frost on your windowsill
But if someone's climbing down your chimney
You better load your gun and shoot to kill

It's Christmas at ground zero
And if the radiation level's okay
I'll go out with you and see all the new
Mutations on New Year's Day

It's Christmas at ground zero
Just seconds left to go
I'll duck and cover with my Yuletide lover
Underneath the mistletoe

It's Christmas at ground zero
Now the missiles are on their way
What a crazy fluke, we're gonna get nuked
On this jolly holiday

What a crazy fluke, we're gonna get nuked
On this jolly holiday!‎
