The Collected Broadcasts Of Idi?AminHow twisted am I to find THIS funny?? Seriously. Click it.

It’s called?”Amazin’ Man” from “The Collected Broadcasts of Idi Amin” by John Bird, a staple on the Dr. Demento Show in the early ’70s. I’ve been playing this little?ditty for motivation while researching The Last King of Scotland. I’m kinda sick like that.

Lyrics:

Ok, right now, here we’re going again from de top and this time, the first violins, uh I want you to plug the instruments into de gas main because I’m not getting the sound I’m liking… and de wives whats forming de backing group, get round to de front of me where I can keep my eye on you.

Now, I’m counting you with the well known counting thing. One, Two, …. oh no, what come after two? FIVE!

Idi, Idi, Idi Amin
Most amazing man there’s ever been
He de General, de President, de King of de Sea
Idi, Idi, Idi Amin

Look at the history, it packed with men
What rising to de top and getting chopped again.
No one handed dem de secret of de whole damn thing
You gotta give de population something to sing

Idi, Idi, Idi Amin
Most amazing man there’s ever been
He de General, de President, de King of de Sea
Idi, Idi, Idi Amin

Take Hitler, Stalin, Attila de Nun,
No-one got a good word for a single one.
Where these first class geniuses all going wrong
They never got the population singing along.

The rest of the verses only plunge deeper into madness… as do I.
