Pop Goes The Eagle

eagle flying

Up and down Sadr City Road,
In and out flies the Eagle.
That's the way our money goes,
Pop goes the weasel!

All around Afghanistan,
Georgie chased Bin Laden.
Al-Qaeda thought 'twas all in fun.
Pop! goes a car bomb.

The Taliban in Pakistan,
Al-Qaeda too, are welcome.
They profit from the opium trade.
While we at home go bankrupt.

A trillion dollars for the wars;
Nothing for the people.
Bend over, take it in the drawers;
Truth is, it's fecal!
