The Lyrics

Tank tracks keep on rollin'
Carryin' them NATO forces in
Wipin' out the Mujaheddin
Still think we're hidin' Bin La-din, now ain't it a sin

Well I heard Mister Rumsfeld is worried
Heard him say the war on terror's down
Well I hope he and Dubya will remember
The oil 'n' gas that's flowin' through our ground, right-a-bout now

Sweet Af-ghanistan-a
Where fundamentalism rules
Sweet Af-ghanistan-a
But we're pumpin' out the fuel

In Kandahar they want the Taliban (BOO! BOO! BOO!)
Don't look like nothing you can do
Now human rights do not bother them
Does growin' opium bother you, now tell the truth

Sweet Af-ghanistan-a
Where fundamentalism rules
Sweet Af-ghanistan-a
But we're pumpin' out the fuel

Turkmenistan's there on the Caspian
Sittin' on a gallon of gas or two
Got to get it out of there somehow
So pick the right regime to do, business with you

Sweet Af-ghanistan-a
Where fundamentalism rules (and the Taliban's cruel)
Sweet Af-ghanistan-a
But we're pumpin' out the fuel

(Yeeahhh...Kabul's got the answer!)
(c) 2006 Stuart Coe

Funny title, but Afghanistan isn't so sweet. It must be the ugliest place on earth.

Pretty catchy, but slightly off pace. I liked it overall.

I agree with Ragu; nice rhyming though.

Thanks for the feedback folks...definitely valid criticism about the timing, I kind of realised after I posted it. I got up and did this at karaoke last night! Still not sure if people were laughing with me or at me...;-)
