Andy Samberg – Iran So Far lyrics
Ft. Adam Levine

Intro: (Andy)
They say true love comes only once in a lifetime.
And even though we're from ooposite ends of the earth,
My heart tells me you're the one for me--

Verse 1: (Andy)
I remember when it started, saw you on the news.
You were hatin' gays, I was eatin' food, but I was feelin' you.
And even though I disagreed with almost everything you said
You aint wrong to me. So strong to me. You belong to me.
Like a very hairy Jake Gyllenhaal to me.
Mahmoud, make my heart beat right out of my chest.
My mind says "No", but my body says "Yes".
Nuclear threat? The only threat I see is the threat of you not comin' home with me.
Our love for each other's like when atoms collide.
Can't express how I feel, ayo Adam, let's ride.

Chorus: (Adam)
And I-ran.
I-ran so far away is your home,
But in my heart you'll stay.

Verse 2: (Andy)
He ran for the president of Iran.
We ran together to a tropical island.
My man, Mahmoud is known for wildin', smilin'.
If he can still do it then I can.
They call you weasel.
They say your methods are medieval.
You could play the Jews, I could be your Jim Caviezal.
S&M, nestlin' when we're wrestlin'.
You could be the port that I park my vessel in.
So, I try to mute the tv, but you can still see me with your sleepy brown eyes, butter-peacan thighs, and your hairy butt.

Chrous: (Adam)
And I-ran.
I-ran so far away.
Come home and in my arms you'll stay.
I used to look at the stars and dream
'Round the world same stars were seen
And they twinkled in your eyes, Mahmoud.

Verse 3: (Andy)
Talk smooth to me.
Wearing a tie and pants high-waisted.
Damn, so fly.
We could take a trip to the animal zoo
And laugh at all the funny things that animals do.
Like Eugene, "You got me straight trippin' boo".
Hope you'll look in my eyes and say, "I'm trippin', too".
You say Iran aint got the bomb, but they already do.
You should know by now,
It's you.

Chrous: (Adam)
And I-ran.
I-ran so far away is your home,
But in my heart you'll stay.
(Kids repeat)

You're crazy for this one, Mahmoud!
You can deny the Holocaust all you want!
But you can't deny that there's somethin' between us!
I know you say there's no gays in Iran,
But you're in New York now baby!
It's time to stop hidin' and start livin'!

(Chorus repeat 'til fade)
