So Long Osama a Jingoist Jingle

Financier, a master-mind,
America’s most wanted.
He planned out the attack,
or was that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed?

I guess he’s now dead
for that just trust US.
But I’m not going to cheer,
or think that it’s justice.

Roar out a big cheer,
and forget the dead babies.
This proves we are right,
no ifs, ands or maybes.

Monstrous he’s called,
and unspeakably bad.
Don’t follow his money,
to our friends in Riyadh.

Belt out a ‘hoo rah’,
now that Osama is gone.
And don’t worry a bit,
the GWOT is still on.
