The Lyrics

Iraq had it's Hussein
Osama's on the run
North Korea's got that Kim Jong-il
And he's one weird son of a gun
Kinda' short, not dumb,
Brains, he has got some,
That he ain't usin' much, of late..
Still, he's one crazy fox, that we gotta watch
And keep in check with our own checkmate
He's gotta' know, right away...

You don't knock off Uncle Sam's hat
You don't even touch the brim
You don't fire off those long range missiles
And You Don't Mess Around Like Kim..

Well, over in Iran they got that Prez Mahmoud
Who likes to hang out on a shaky limb
Another snake with a hiss
Big fangs runnin' amiss,
We won't take no crap from him
They think we're spread too thin,
With our troops in Iraq, now
But, back here at home's, an ample force
And may I remind you, Sonny
Do not get too funny
Or your country could be their next course
And we can handle any challenge, you throw

So, you don't knock off Uncle Sam's hat
You don't even touch the brim
You don't fire off no long range missiles
And You Don't Mess Around Like Kim

Gonna' bend your axis of evil
If your uranium plan ain't stopped
And if diplomacy fails,
We'll take it to another level,
Like some missiles and bombs to drop
We are not about to knuckle under
Read our ships in the Persian Sea
If you're foolish and try
To knock the chip off of our shoulder
You've spelled C-A-T-A-S-T-R-O-P-H-E
And I say..

You don't knock off Uncle Sam's hat
You don't even touch the brim
You don't play with nukes or long range missiles,
And You Don't Mess Around Like Kim

You don't knock off Uncle Sam's hat
You dont even touch the brim
You don't fool with nukes or long range missiles,
And You Don't Mess Around Like Kim...

Nice job, even if you don't got a two-piece custom-made pool cue. Kristof: Check out Malcolm Higgins' "Itsy-Bitsy, Not-Agreein', something-something North Korean."
