The Lyrics

These are taken from real weekly world news headlines over the years
I read the news today oh boy
It seems that Satan has escaped from hell
And though the news was rather sad
Well I just had to laugh
I saw the photograph

I see Saddam now lives in France
And Jacques Chirac is Gay and loves to Prance
They said that Bush is really smart
He solved a Rubix cube
And then went to the moon in a secretive US space craft
They love to turn us on....

I read the news today oh boy
A spaceship landed in Bin Laden's path
And on the other side of Earth
Bin Laden had a cow
His baby wasn't ugly, no I really mean he bore a cow
They love to turn us on....

Wake up, Cause God is dead
But a baby with no head
Managed to be born and felling well,
Slow down, the cops
are shooting folks for speeding now

Find your coat and grab your hat
There's a crazy Psycho bat
Turning your apartment into smoke,
Taking out a gun and shooting folk

I read the news today oh boy
A british fighter plane found on the moon
The biggest mystery of all
The next day it was gone
I wonder how this magazine has any circulation at all
They love to turn us on

So you're saying it's not Bin Laden's cow? But he's still married to Saddam, right? Great job Laurence (I was gonna call you "LD" but you're clearly not learning disabled)

Another great one, Laurence! (I always thought it'd be fun to be a staff writer for WWN.)
