I'm a little bit surprised not to see any mention of this song on the 'Cat. I think it's by either Flip Breskin or possibly Zeke Hoskin. It provides a valid argument for just war, and a fresh take on the Sin of Sodom, to boot.

Are You an Innie or an Outie?


We'll fight for our sacred religion,
For the color of our skins,
We'll fight for anything money can buy,
And no one ever wins
We'll fight for our homes and our honor.
We're fighters, there's no doubt,
But if we're fightin', then we oughta be fightin'
For something worth fightin' about

Are you an innie or an outie?
Are you convex or concave?
If you've got the wrong kind of belly button,
The situation's grave
From chains of ignorance and doubt
I've got to set my people free.
Are you an innie or an outie?
Pull your shirt up and let me see.

Adam and Eve they were smoothies
Never had no umbilical cords
Where Cain and Abel had opposite navels,
And that's why they crossed swords
When Lot and Mrs Lot were leaving Sodom
They had an unplanned halt,
She saw some innies who were makin' it with outies,
And the sight turned her into salt!
Are you ?

Growing up in Outie Mongolia
Turns a boy into a damn tough man
If you'd ask anybody who could kill the most innies
They'd answer, Genghis can
When you think of the dozens of innocent lives
Cut short by Billy the Kid
Well, he was an innie, and they were all outies,
And that's why he done what he did
Are you ?

Now some people think I'm a warhawk
Taking such an extreme position
For a fold of flesh who shape is determined
By the whim of an obstetrician
And some people think I'm a coward
'Cause when those trumpets call,
If we ain't fightin' over belly buttons,
Then I ain't gonna fight at all.
Are you ?

"who shape" should read "whose shape"; could Joe or a clone fix it, please? Sorry about that....

It's on Zeke Hoskin's CD Lethal Reprieve, but the lead singer is female, presumably Flip. Very earnestly flip...
