The Lyrics

another political one from my new batch of songs
We're swearin'
"Where's Osama?!"
No sign of
the Al-Qaida
It's sickening... our prancing
Wake up!
They don't fear you.
Here from this high rooftop
Uh oh
We got some worldwide strife
I got some news to tell ya
Uh oh
About some worldwide strife
And with Muqtada in charge
Uh oh
He'll cause some worldwide strife
This ain't the way we like it
Uh oh
F***ing worldwide strife

We wrestle
with our conscience
Bush wrestles
with his sponsors
Cheney's sells his story still, but he spends his time behind closed doors
Check out Mr. Businessman
Uh oh
He bought some worldwide strife
"Go f*** yourself," but nothing's changed
Uh oh
He made some worldwide strife
John McCain bending over for more
Uh oh
He's screwin' our wildlife
I guess that's the way he likes it
Uh oh
Screwin' worldwide

[no child] left behind?
It's a piece of shi*
Thought control
You get ignored any...time you like

We're shi**in' on
Friends and evils
Things fall apart
It's masochistic

Bombing doesn't liberate
But oh no
It makes worldwide strife
U.N. in, then U.N. out
Uh oh
They watch the worldwide strife
Spending all of our money and lives
Uh oh
It's too much worldwide strife
Bush wants to go, where'd he go, I don't know
Uh oh
He's doing worldwide strife
He'll blow it
That's how it starts
Uh oh
For some worldwide strife
Take a picture,
Here in broad daylight
Uh oh
Of this worldwide strife
But overall,
We must move fast
Uh oh
Wild, wild
We know that's the way they like it
Uh oh
Making world world worldwide strife
