Twenty-five years was what the judge said,
Then he banged his gavel and shook his head
You've done wrong, you broke our trust
Now we caught you and this is a bust

Now you'll spend these decades behind bars of steel;
Thought you could play with us, but this is for real
You gave away secrets to the enemy
Now you'll live in prison in the land of the free

But here beneath this Cuban sun
I'd just like to thank you for all you've done
Today I'm torn apart
Ana Belen Montes, you are a spy after my own heart

"I obeyed my conscience instead of the law," so you said at your secret trial
You took no money for your work, so says your declassified file
You warned the Cubans of the plans of the assassins from the US
Just what other good deeds you did, they may never tell us

But here beneath this Cuban sun
I'd just like to thank you for all you've done
Today I'm torn apart
Ana Belen Montes, you are a spy after my own heart

High up in the ranks of the DoD, you served the common good
Working alone, night and day, you did just what you should
Of all the great people I have known, there are few that I'd call greater
Than one woman who obeyed a higher law, who the judge called traitor

But here beneath this Cuban sun
I'd just like to thank you for all you've done
Today I'm torn apart
Ana Belen Montes, you are a spy after my own heart
