The Lyrics

This relates to the events occurring in Libya (2011).
Libya calling to the faraway towns
Gaddafi's declared "Let's batter them down!"
Libya calling to the underworld
Go cut them all up, both boys and girls
Libya calling, now don't appease us
Now that New Labour has bitten the dust
Libya calling, see we ain't got no swing
Except for the one for Gaddafi's regime.

Democracy's coming, typhoons zooming in
Downfall expected, liberty's coming
Engines stop running, but I have no fear
'Cause Gaddafi's blown his top in the Sahara.

Libya calling to the revolution zone
Forget about it, we gonna all own
Libya calling to the zombies of death
Quit holding out and draw another breath
Libya calling and I don't wanna shout
But while we were talking, NATO's moving out
Libya calling, see we ain't got ote to hide
Except for that one with yellow in his eyes.

Democracy's coming, typhoons zooming in
Engines stop running, liberty's coming
Political error, but I have no fear
'Cause Gaddafi's blown his top livin' in Sahara.

Now get this...

Libya calling, reporters there too
And you know what they said? Most of it was true!
Libya calling, now we top up that vial
And after all this we all want to smile
Libya calling.

I've never felt so empathic.
