The Lyrics

A song for Slobodan Milosevic, the forerunner to Osama Bin-Ladin as the World's favourite bogeyman
Sitting in the Serbian sun
I'll be hiding when NATO bombs
Watching the tanks roll in
Then I watch 'em roll away again, yeah

I'm...
Sitting on a tank in Belgrade
Watching the army roll away
I'm just sitting on a tank in Belgrade
Wasting lives

I sent my troops to Kosovo
'Cause they wanted to break away
My presidency's lookin' shaky
And NATO's coming bombing my way

So I'm just...
Sitting on a tank in Belgrade
Watching the army roll away
I'm just sitting on a tank in Belgrade
Wasting lives

Look like things are gonna change
Election was my darkest hour
I can't do what the people tell me to do
So I guess I'll try to stay in power

Yes, I'm sittin' here resting my bones
And the press won't leave me alone
It's over Yugoslavia I roamed
Just to make this dock my home

Now, I'm just...
Sitting in the dock in the Hague
Watching my life roll away
Sitting in the dock in the Hague
Wasting time
{Whistle}
