The Lyrics

All right, it's a little outdated now, but I wasn't aware of your site in October 2001. This is something we all came up with over lunch between 9/11 and the first bombing raids in Afghanistan.
Who can take Osama,
hide him in a hole
Keep away the U.S.
from this nasty dust bowl
The Taliban
The Taliban can
The Taliban can 'cause they're in charge of everything in Afghanistan

Who can take Manhattan
Burn it in a day
Kill so many people
And then run away
The Taliban
The Taliban can
The Taliban can 'cause they're in charge of everything in Afghanistan

(Bridge)
The Taliban hates
All the United States
Because of their religious fervor
Or maybe something's in their turbans
They're gonna cause a great disturbance

Who can change our airplanes
Into flying bombs
Kill thousands of people in the name of Islam
The Taliban
The Taliban can....etc.

The Taliban hates
Everything that makes
America the place to live in.
And that's only the beginin'...
Look at how they treat their women!

Who can save their own butts
And their people's, too
By givin' us Osama
And all his nasty crew
The Taliban
The Taliban can
The Taliban can 'cause they're in charge of everything in Afghanistan

(Slowly for big finish) The Taliban can 'cause they're in charge of
everything in Afghanistan
