UnTunes:Do Islamic State Know It's Christmas?

From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia

The single's cover made explicit the uncanny resemblance IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi bears to Santa.

The fundraising track Do Islamic State Know It's Christmas? was written in late 2014, after the terrorist group's most high-profile year of activity culminated in the kidnapping of an UnNews journalist, Lionel Wimberley.

Into this maelstrom of fractious history, interracial relations, and religious intolerance, came Uncyclopedian Lev Everage.

He got to writing the track after realising that only Wimberley knew the password to the company's PayPal account.

Chris Martin, who asked to participate on the track but was refused, said, "It's that one lyric that gets me - 'If they live in a caliphate, do they know it's Christmas?' That hit me like a big punch in the nuts."

It's Christmastime; there's no need for war and hate
At Christmastime, let's let ourselves love Islamic State
And in this world of Jihadis, we can spread a smile of joy
Drop your arms around the world at Christmastime

Just say a prayer
Pray for the hairy ones
At Christmastime
It's hard to know what's going on

There's a plane outside your window
That Ahmed's commandeered
Cos the strongest thing he's had to drink
Is the bitter taste of tears

With no turkey, and no presents,
You'd be killing people too
So tonight thank God
You're Christian (or a Jew)

And there won't be snow in Syria this Christmastime
Decapitated heads are all that fall.
No wine or whiskey flows, and the girls wear lots of clothes
Do they know it's Christmastime at all?

Here's to you, if you fight for Islamic State
Here's to them, if they live in a caliphate -
Do they know it's Christmastime at all?

Eid's no good...
Let them know it's Christmastime...
