The Lyrics

Al Qaeda now is all over the world
Come see Bin Laden's tape
Get out the can of Raid, ole chum
Get out your can of Raid
Put down the knitting and pick up your broom
Watch out for holidays
Get out the can of Raid, ole chum
Get out your can of Raid

Kerry did whine, "We missed the man"
Bin Laden's got a lot of munchkins
Everywhere--just hear them crunchin
They're in each country, from Spain to Khartoum
Ain't gonna go away
Get out the can of Raid, ole chum
Get out the can of Raid

We used to think the world was tied so neatly
Til terror came to us, and not discreetly
It wasn't what you'd call our finest hour
As a matter of fact they leveled both the towers
The day folks died we had to go deliver
A message that we 'd fight, not quiver
When people saw New York's ground zero scene
The world was not the same again

I think of heroes to this very day
I remember how "Let's roll" is what they said
What good is sitting alone on this plane?
Let's go and make their day
Get out the can of Raid, ole chums
Get out the can of Raid

Put down the knitting, and pick up your broom
Time now to have our say
Get down the can of Raid ole chums
Get down the can of Raid

And as for me, as for me
I made my mind up back in '01
America is under the gun

Start by admitting:
From bombing to doom might not be far away
Get out your can of Raid, ole chum
A great big can of Raid ole chum
We've got some bugs to slay
