Coz I Live In A Tough Neighbourhood!

.

“We live in a tough neighbourhood.” Benjamin Netanyahu

.

You think I am some tyrant

No, you’ve misunderstood!

Coz where I strut, you gotta be a hardnut!

I live in a tough neighbourhood!

.

When I moved in to this region

Settling where I think I should

The neighbours flared up, I had to shut them up

Coz I live in a tough neighbourhood!

.

The old residents around me

Would wipe me out if they really could

Why they act so mad? I only took their land!?

See I live in a tough neighbourhood!

.

You think I am some heartless

cruel, despot,  devoid of good?!

They curse me when they pray! (I only put their sons away?!)

I live in a tough neighbourhood.

.

When I was settling into this area

I took land to make some room

The dwellers already there, threw bombs in the air

Coz I live in a tough neighbourhood!

.

To protect me from the people

whose houses I overtook,

Of cool missiles, I’ve had to build a stockpile

Coz I live in a tough neighbourhood

.

Why should those around me

Have an arsenal like my nuclear hoard?

We’re diligent, it’s only deterrent,

Coz we live in a tough neighbourhood.

.

You look at me with hatred

Coz I don’t support statehood

If they had their own state, it would be too late,

We live in a tough neighbourhood.

.

Ever since I came here,

Trouble sticks to me like glue

Bombed them to the ground, to protect my crown.

Coz I live in a tough neighbourhood.
