The Lyrics

First Slovenia broke away, then Croatia the next day
Bosnia, Macedonia, next came Kosovo
Slobo had a brand new vision, told them on the television
The World's against us Serbs, we're fighting all alone
With his friend Radovan, sending all his guns and bombs
Branded "The King of Lies" using pious alibis,
Vukovar, crime scene, Belgrade's got a new King
Sent his gunmen, shot at women, Sarajevo goodbye

Milosevic started the fire
It was genocidin'
But he's still denyin'
Milosevic started the fire
But Europe let him
Till NATO came to get him

Joseph Stalin's stupid clone, now in prison all alone
Once a proud member of the Communist Bloc
He's like Roy Cohn and Juan Peron, wears cheap suit of dacron
Srebrenica falls, mass murder still can shock
Criminal, really mean, he's living out a twisted dream
Bulging pockets, public scams, built a gangster's Disneyland
Ethic cleansing conquest, like Hungary and Khrushchev
Hopeless case, can't erase, all of Bosnia's war dead


Intervention, UN hacks, blue helmets shun the facts
Morass, muck and mire, won't commit and risk Serb fire
Lebanon style war, just trying to ignore
Stark killing, homicide, children dead from mortar fire
Oh my golly, peace talks, no more war hawks
Shattered hopes, too slow, Negotiation's no-go
Resignation, wait and see, they've fought for centuries
They're hopeless Psychos, just like in the Congo!


Ma-te Bo-ban, Vance-Owen Peace Plan
Mlatko Radic, Fikret Abdic, Mostar's bloody war,
Ar-kan, Karad-zic, Omarska Auschwitz
Plav-sic, Krajis-nik, Dayton Peace accord
Izet-begovic, assistance is out of reach
Safe Havens, blown away, what else do I have to say?


Unrest in the Balkan lands, Europe's sitting on its hands
glumly, passively, regretfully, hopelessly,
Lord Carrington out of time, everyone sells landmines
Mujaheddin from Iran, Russians helping Slobodan
Israeli weapons still denied, Greek smuggling still defies
Clinton gets, US jets, to erase impeachments
Refugees who still are poor, countries under martial law
Ever-present Balkan wars, I can't take it anymore!
Billy Joels' original song c1989 Maritime Music Co & Columbia Records.
