His home is in Caracas, though,
Which lies in our own hemisphere;

Our spooks and spies have naught to fear--
Their mission is completely clear.
Heroic stories will be told
By talking heads who always cheer.

We shouldn't have to pay with gold
For oil that's countless aeons old
That's what a petro dollar's for--

A socialist off our south shore.
We're off to fight another war,
We're off to fight a bloody war.
