Ranilan’s Lament

[TamilNet, Saturday, 06 May 2009, 02:00 GMT]

This song was heard emanating from Ranilan “Traitor” Wickramasingham’s luxury condo in Oslo last month.

Sung to the tune of “Last Kiss” by Pearl Jam

Oh, where oh where can my Velu be?
Sinhalams took him away from me
He’s gone to hell, so I’ve got to be worse
So I can see my Velu when I leave this world.

We were out to treat the Sinhalams like shit
Together we got very far 
In 2005, I lost the polls again!
Our luck was up, and the Sinhalams reined
They didn’t stop, they gave us GenocideTM
I’ll never forget MR’s victory night
Alcohol, tears and the busting glass
The painful sound that Eric made last.

Oh, where oh where can my Velu be?
Sinhalams took him away from me
He’s gone to hell, so I’ve got to be worse
So I can see my Velu when I leave this world.

When I had lost, I was bitter as hell
I formed an intense betraying campaign
Around the world, spreading L.I.E.S. I went
Somehow I haven’t been deported yet
Checking my bank, to assure myself
That I was not making a big mistake

Euros, pounds, all kinds of dollars I made
Retirement would have been comfy as hell
But now he’s gone, the love of my life,
I lost my love, in 2009.

Oh, where oh where can my Velu be?
Sinhalams took him away from me
He’s gone to hell, so I’ve got to be worse
So I can see my Velu when I leave this world.
 
Mooo ooo oooooo
Mooo ooo oooooo
