The Lyrics

I work for a Public Radio Station and have been aware of the Taliban for some time. I've always had a tendency to counteract adversity with humor, and had this song scripted out in various forms with the "final" draft done the night after the President addressed the nation and held out the firefighter's badge.
Who defended Kabul, and drove the Russians out...
They blew up Buddha's statue to prove they are devout...
The Taliban, oh the Taliban clan...
The Taliban had to know that their luck wasn't going to stay that good.

Who can find bin Laden, bring him back to Bush.
Load him on a plane and give him a big push...
The Taliban...Oh the Taliban can..
The Taliban can 'cause when we get the s.o.b - we'll make the world feel good.

The Taliban views all the modern world
from the standpoint of a long past century...
They jumble up the Koran's entries...
They'll be sleeping in their caves with sand fleas.

Who's sitting in the crosshairs... of everybody's guns
Bring us back Osama or you we'll have you on the run
The Talilban, the Taliban
The Taliban man, better head into the mountains before he gets tattooed.

(Mike Sola,
