The Story Behind "Dove Of Peace"

On Sacha Baron Cohen's last movie, Bruno, he is a gay fashionista who is the host of the top-rated late night fashion show in any German-speaking country… apart from Germany. His mission is to become the biggest Austrian celebrity since Hitler, and his strategy is to crisscross the globe in the hopes of finding fame and love. Not only this, also Bruno attempts to seduce a onetime presidential hopeful, adopts a black African baby and provokes a near riot at a caged boxing bout in Texas.

Over the closing credits, Bruno releases a brilliantly cheesy but subversive single, "Dove Of Peace" which mocks the charitable concern of Band Aid, and he invites celebrities like Bono (from U2), Elton John (playing also the piano), Snoop Dogg, Chris Martin (from Coldplay), Sting (from The Police) and guitarist Slash from Guns n' Roses. The track had already been part-recorded in the legendary Abbey Road Studios. "Chris Martin was in stitches throughout the recording and only just managed to get his lines out," a source told the Mirror.


"I've written a song
that I hope is gonna bring the world together
Put down your guns and bombs
and just make love forever (Okay then)

He's come to heal the world
and make our nations calm down
I am the Austrian Jesus
He is the white Obama (He's the white Obama)

War's just based on hate and fear
Stop fighting North and South Korea

You're both basically Chinese

He's Brüno, dove of peace
Ey yo Brüno, where the bitches at?
You are Brüno, dove of peace
You're a fashion model, you got the cute hoes
You are Brüno, dove of peace
(No I love black guys, I'm a chocoholic)
Du bist Brüno, dove of peace

I have a dream for the Third World: clean water, food and teaching
In every village and every town, a place for anal bleeching

We need to rid the world of hunger
I'm just like Bono except much younger
He is only nineteen
Ich bin Brüno, dove of peace

Ey ey, he gay, he gay
