The cities are full of criminals
All of them are black
They'll shoot you for your shoes
Or to get a little crack
But the police are protecting us
Locking up these thugs
Making us all safer
By being tough on drugs

There was a truck bomb in Baghdad
Blew up the UN
These fanatics do not have a care
For innocent women and men
They don't like civilizations
It's just destruction that they crave
There is no rhyme or reason
For the way that they behave

It's hard to believe
But I know it's true
I saw it on the evening news

There's a war on in Colombia
And it's all about cocaine
And the FARC is running drugs
From Mexico to Maine
It's an ugly situation
But soon it will be whipped
We just need to send along
More helicopter gunships

It's hard to believe
But I know it's true
I saw it on the evening news

There was a bomber in Jerusalem
Blew himself up on a bus
He was a funny-looking Muslim
Not like one of us
He didn't like the Jews
And he says that God is great
I don't know what his problem is
He's just so full of hate

It's hard to believe
But I know it's true
I saw it on the evening news

Evil men are plotting
To blow up Washington, DC
'Cause they don't like freedom
And democracy
They're fans of the Dark Ages
They are all around
They're marching from the desert sand
And coming to your town

It's hard to believe
But I know it's true
I saw it on the evening news

It's hard to believe
But I know it's true
I saw it on the evening news
