CIA agent

Pussy-cat, CIA-cat,
Where have you been?
I've been to Afghanistan,
To track down a bad man.

Pussy-cat, CIA-cat,
What did you there?
I brought down the Taliban,
And drove them from their lair.

Pussy-cat, CIA-cat,
Did you get bad Osama?
I had him trapped in a cave,
But left him for Obama.

Pussy-cat, CIA-cat,
Where did you go next?
I went off to Baghdad, and
Saddam's neck got stretched.

Pussy-cat, CIA-cat,
What did you there?
I frightened a prisoner
Wired, standing in air.

Iraqi Prisoner Wired

Pussy-cat, CIA-cat,
Who next did you treat?
I rendered a prisoner
Like a piece of meat.

Pussy-cat, CIA-cat,
Where is your secret prison?
You will find out soon enough.
Doubt about you has arisen.
