The Lyrics

Despite the subject matter, not intended as a political statement. Simply an observation of recent events.

Africa: the tomahawks cause craters in the streets, boy
There’s submarines, backed up by the flights from
French and Yank and Brit boys
Overhead’s a ballyhoo
Meant to see his hide is tanned
Gonna take Benghazi down
There's just no place for extreme violent man


Yay! Sixty-nine was time for a coup d’etat solution
Now, I say “Yikes!” at U.N. strikes – they’ll cause my devolution
I ask what can old Muammar do?
Why does no-one understand?
Causing grief, what’s goin’ down
They’re in the face of the Gaddafi man

Duck down!

(Nearly everyone else):

Say! Said this guy’s been pain for ages
Met’phor-ic’ly, that l’il green book
Shall rip out all its pages
His aggression just won’t do
Won’t accede when told: disband
Gonna take Trip-ol-i down
There's just no place for a dictator man

Never even heard of this song before and this parody was good but I can't wait to see somebody do it about the video game: "Street Fighter"
