The Lyrics

In the year 2001,
Those World Trade Center folks had no fun,
Al Queda network highjacked 4 planes,
And caused this world so much pain, woo, oh, oooh.

In the year 2002,
People out of work with nothing to do,
We had tax cuts for the rich,
Condoleeza is such a bitch, woo, oh, oooh.

In the year 2003,
We killed a whole bunch of Iraqis,
Said we had to get rid of Saddam,
With depleted uranium bombs, woo, oh, ooh

In the year 2004,
Will Bush be an unemployed oil whore,
Or will he get re-elected,
Then no problems will be corrected, woo, oh, ooh

In the year 2010,
Will we be at war with Iraq again,
And North Korea and Russia too,
Defense contractors will be rich dudes, woo, oh, ooh

In the year 2025,
Will mankind still be alive,
Will those who try to divide us,
Lose their cool and decide to nuke us, woo, oh, ooh

Now it's been 25 years,
This millenium has confirmed our worst fears,
But maybe we can overcome,
And kick out of office all those bums...

(beat, beat, beat, beat..mm,mm,mm,mmm)

In the year 2001....(fade out)

I just saw Ra'akone did the same song with the same idea a few days before me. His is better.

Instead of using a whole bunch of periods between your lines, why don't you use the br tag? It'll look neater that way.
