The Lyrics

The Oklahoma tornado is a tragedy, so this parody is not meant to be funny, but reflective of natural disasters that can strike at any time :(
One mile wide
One mile wide

Force of 5
Force of 5

Took young lives
Help arrived
Trapped inside,
some survive

Residents horrified

[Damage greater this time]
The 5 in the lyrics refer to the Enhanced Fujita scale for tornados of which this was a Category 4 with 200 mph winds, but packed the force of a Category 5. More people have been killed with this 4 than with the 1999 Category 5 which had 318 mph winds (highest ever recorded). "Damage greater this time" refers to the 1999 tornado strike.
