Never Be Rude to an Arab is a satire song by the members of Monty Python's Flying Circus. It appears as sung by Terry Jones in the theatrically released concert film Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl as well as on the album Monty Python Sings.
The song dispenses valuable advice about not resorting to xenophobic insults, beginning with Arabs and moving on to other races you should not insult - "an Israeli, a Saudi or Jew" and an "Irishman."
The song then becomes (intentionally) offensive in its own right as it declares that you should never be rude to a "nigger", a "spic" or a "wop" or a "kraut". Jones starts to sing "And never put...", but gets no further as someone blows him up in an explosion.
At the Hollywood Bowl, Jones returned on the other side of an intervening sketch to sing "Never be rude to a Polack..." before being exploded again.
