Gold bricks falling on my head
Two kids dead
My mark is an Ace of Spades from a Hoyle Card
Why must I sleep in the ground so hard
Spiders and lice are my only friends
George W. Bush his condolences sends
A gun and their money is all I had
Darkness and solitude weren't all that bad
For the Butcher of Baghdad I relinquish my throne
My days are numbered, my kingdom is done
I'm hated by all, I'm not anyone's hero
I fear they will shackle me and put me at Ground Zero
They will spit on me and hurl rotten fruit at my head
I deserve all this hatred and much more it's said
I guess there's a special place for me, not a cell
For the place that I'm going is straight to hell.
