(to the tune of the Banana Boat Song by Harry Belafonte) based on a Jamaican folk song

EH HOOD, day EH EH HOOD Ehud’s done and da jail’s his new home

EH, he say EH, he say EH, he say EH, he say EH, he say EH-ay-ay-HOOD Ehud’s done and da jail’s his new home!

They shot all night from ole Hezb’Allah (Ehud’s done and da jail’s his new home)

And he just played wid his banana (Ehud’s done and da jail’s his new home)

Come, Mr. Tally Mon, tally his corruption (Ehud’s done and da jail’s his new home)

Come, Mr. Tally Mon, tally the corruption (Ehud’s done and da jail’s his new home)

It’s six K, five K, four K, Graft! (Daylight come and da jail’s his new home)

It’s six K, five K, four K, Graft ! (Daylight come and da jail’s his new home)

A beautiful bunch a’ripe defrauding (Ehud’s done and da jail’s his new home)

Loot in envelopes purloining (Ehud’s done and da jail’s his new home).

EH HOOD, day EH EH HOOD Ehud’s done and da jail’s his new home

EH, he say EH, he say EH, he say EH, he say EH, he say EH-ay-ay-HOOD Ehud’s done and da jail’s his new home!
