The Lyrics

I am feeling very old of late. It seems that all the dictators, despots, and general all around bad guys, I have grown up hearing and reading about in the news are starting to drop like flies.
Where have all the despots gone
I used to know
Where have all the despots gone
Where did they go
Where have all the despots gone
They’ve all been picked off one by one
In hell, they’ll ever burn
In hell, they’ll ever burn

Where is Yasser Arafat
Where did he go
Where is Yasser Arafat
Head of the PLO
In Ramalla he did hide
Then one day, just up and died
In hell, he’ll ever burn
In hell, he’ll ever burn

Where is Saddam Hussein at
Where did he go
Where is Saddam Hussein at
I’d like to know
Found him in a spider hole
Hung him from a yard arm pole
In hell, he’ll ever burn
In hell, he’ll ever burn

Muammar Gaddafi’s gone
Latest to go
Muammar Gaddafi’s gone
Now he’s a show
In a market on display
In a frozen state he lay
In hell, he’ll ever burn
In hell, he’ll ever burn

Where have all the despots gone
They’re going fast
Where have all the despots gone
They just can’t last
Not too many left these days
Clinging tight to the old ways
When will they ever learn
When will they ever learn

Let's all hope you can add some extra verses for Assad, Mubarak, Chavez, Castro, Kim, Khameini, Mugabi, and Ahmedinejad. That song will be longer than "American Pie" and "Edmund Fitzgerald" combined.

They're not gone - they're working as school principals and child guidance councilers.

Good job. Don't forget Milosevic the SOB, he nearly single-handedly destroyed Yugoslavia and sparked a genocide. Then there's Pinochet of Chile, Mobutu of Zaire, Idi Amin, and others who died in exile. Too bad most of them didn't get their justice in this life.
