Hey! Ed Snowden, Ed Snowden, Ed Snowden he leaked the secrets and run Venezuela.
Once again now!
Hey! Ed Snowden, Ed Snowden, Ed Snowden he leaked the secrets and run Venezuela.
Two Hundred thou, friends, he lost:
Hawaii gone and passport tossed!
Heya! Ed Snowden he leaked the secrets and run Venezuela.
Everybody!
(Ed Snowden) Sing out the chorus,
(Ed Snowden) Sing a little louder,
Ed Snowden he leaked the secrets and run Venezuela.
Once again now!
(Ed Snowden) Going for asylum,
(Ed Snowden) Sing out the chorus,
Ed Snowden he leaked the secrets and run Venezuela.
Well, he gave up life in paradise,
To the NSA he said no dice,
A-hey, ah!
Ed Snowden he leaked the secrets and run Venezuela.
Everybody!
(Ed Snowden
Ed Snowden,
Ed Snowden he leaked the secrets and run Venezuela.)
Once again now!
(Ed Snowden) Going 'round the corner,
(Ed Snowden

Well, Wikileaks supports the cause,
But his actions give John Kerry pause
Don't you know,
Ed Snowden he leaked the secrets and...
Everybody...
(Ed Snowden
Ed Snowden
Ed Snowden he leaked the secrets and run Venezuela.)
Once again now!
(Ed Snowden,) Hooma locka chimba,
(Ed Snowden) He's now in Moscow,
Ed Snowden, he leaked the secrets and run Venezuela
NSA agents?
(Ed Snowden
Ed Snowden
Ed Snowden he leaked the secrets and run Venezuela.)
Everybody!
(Ed Snowden,) Will he go to Equador,
(Ed Snowden,) Or will he go to Cuba,
Ed Snowden, he leaked the secrets and run Venezuela
Well, me friends, no more Hawaii
His passport revoked!
Uh, heya...
Ed Snowden, he leaked the secrets and run Venezuela.
Everybody!

Sing a little softer!
(Ed Snowden

Ed Snowden he leaked the secrets and run Venezuela .)
EVERYBODY!

Ed Snowden Sing out the chorus!
Ed Snowden he leaked the secrets and run Venezuela!
