There is one road in Afghanistan,

From Kabul to Kandahar;

It takes many hours to get that far.

Instead of tolls

You must pay bribes;

Everywhere corruption thrives.

The coalition of the willing

Builds no roads;

Focuses on killing.

They built a school

It has no chairs,

There are no books anywhere.

The life for the people

Does not improve

Their major crop we don't approve;

They grow for cash
