THE BEASTLY BALLAD OF TRAIN-WRECK MOSSADEGH

Fifteen men on a dead man’s chest
I’m a bad, bad boy
I shot those suckers and I’ll shoot the rest
But I take no joy

They call me Johnny-lee
Rock-n-roll
Hooker with a heart of gold
Baby I’m’a do what I please

They call me train-wreck Mossaddegh
Heavy hangin’ to the left
Baby I’m’a do what I please
Woah-oh, woah-ohhhhh…

Fifteen men on a dead man’s chest
I shot those suckers and I’ll shoot the rest
Most illinest B-boy
I got that feelin’
I am most ill
And I’m rhymin’ and steelin’

Ali Baba and the fourty thieves
I’m a bad, bad boy
Now that’s my great-grandfather so you best believe
I’m a bad, bad boy

I am a red alert, Terror-threat
Martial law is in effect
Lover, if you know what I mean

I am a purple heart, work of art
Sleepin’ in a city park
Lover so you better come clean
Woah-oh, woah-ohhhhh…

Ali Baba and the fourty thieves
Now that’s my great-grandfather so you best believe
Most illinest B-boy
I got that feelin’
I am most ill
And I’m rhymin’ and steelin’

Their pistols are loaded, they shot Abu-bakr
They’re some bad, bad boys
So I threw Colonel Sanders into
Davy Jones locker
Man I had no choice

I’m on a rashidun honeymoon
Gotta make some money soon
Baby I got bills to pay
I’m on a rebel yell, kiss and tell
Tell ‘em all to go to hell
Mission so get out of my way
Woah-oh, woah-ohhhhh…

Pistols are loaded, they shot Abu-bakr
So I threw Colonel Sanders into Davy Jones locker
Most illinest B-boy
I got that feelin’
I am most ill
And I’m rhymin’ and steelin’

Muhammad Seven is an Iranian-American singer/songwriter from Boston. His narrative lyricism pays as much homage to Hafiz and Saadi as it does to Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, with deeply personal and political statements nestled amongst metaphors and vivid specificity. You might also listen carefully for the unmistakable influence of ‘90’s era hip-hop. ... more
