The Lyrics

This is the first parody I have submitted, so please give suggestions. You may need to know a little about Cuban-American relations for the last 40 years to get the jokes.
Cuba, is communist,
That’s why they want Castro,
They finally quit since their sick of it,
The CIA to Congress,
Six hundred thirty eight,
That’s their try tally but he’s still awake,
All his enemies have retired, it makes the CIA look like,
A bunch of idiots.

The whole free world was really obsessed with getting his head right into their hands,
We tried poisoning, and machine gunning,
They were desperate so we tried a pen,
They asked for help from Fleming,
Who wrote double O seven,
Ronald Regan to Bill Clinton, and Castro’s girlfriend,
Castro’s never dead.

Blew a plane to bits,
A bazooka didn’t fit in that apartment,
Tried soft balls that detonate,
Pistol in a camera for a press conference.

Secret agents have spent hours,
Getting his ass onto a platter,
Even Che Guevara has died,
Back in the sixties for some crimes.

His diving suit was all poisoned,
Some tried but they chickened out,
Dubya’s tried some,
Bombs under where he’d speak,
They’ve done it all before,
And still no heart attacks.

All those cigars have enough carcinogens to clog arteries leading to his head,
Even recently his bother subbed during an operation,
He wanted to blow us up,
He has a Venezuelan friend,
Chavez’s gonna get the same s#*t they gave the Cuban,
Castro’s never dead.

Castro’s never dead.

The Bay of Pigs was just like a twig against a bunch of Soviet tanks,
State sponsored terrorists didn’t do a bit against the world’s last communist,
And we still have our embargo,
And there’s still those immigrants,
Our foreign relations suck like they did back then,
Castro’s never dead.

Castro’s never dead.

Castro’s never dead.

Dictatorships never end.

I listened to this song earlier today so I decided to bring it out again and give a NOOB a chance. Missing lines, missing syllables and missing rhymes ends up to an average NOOB parody, but that's to be expected and not meant as an insult. For learning the tricks of the trade I suggest you check out some SOMT medal parodies and study them carefully (without getting intimidated of the high quality, it DOES take a while to get up there). For an initial improvment to go with your number two I suggest a bit of syllable counting to match better with all TOS (The Orginal Song) lines. :-)

SOMT should be SOTM and it means Song Of The Month, you'll find a link to the left on this page.

So far, Castro's approximately 80 years old. Last I heard, he had some health issues & his brother Raul was selected as a temp.
