Well I'm a little orphan boy
On the streets of Baghdad
Well here comes the big one
He's the head of command
But to me he's a stranger
And you're on my land
You know what I want more than anything
Just to see them gone
Could be a stone or a rock or a gun
But for me it's fun

'cause I tell you right now
Can't get you out of my mind
Can't get you out of my home
Can't get you out of my country
Tell you now
Can't get you out of my home
Can't get you out of my mind
Can't get you out of my country

Well I'm a little homeless girl
In the deserts of Sudan
And our Arab overlords
Want to kick us off the land
So they come in the dead of night
And our village they bomb
Snuff out the young and the sick
'cause they want us gone

Let me tell you now
We can't get you out of our minds
Can't get you out of our homes
Can't get you out of our country
Tell us now
Can't get you out of our hearts
Can't get you out of our minds
Can't get you out of our country

I can't get you out of my heart
Can't get you out of my mind
Can't get you out of our country
Can't get you out of my heart
Can't get you out of my mind
Can't get you out of my country

Well I'm here in Saudi Arabia
With our invisible god
Well I'm a drunken Westerner
You ain't sparing the rod
I want more than anything
Just to...
So you want more than anything
Just to cut off my hand

And now can't get us out of my heart
Can't get us out of your mind
Can't get us out of your country
Tell you now
Can't get us out of our mind
Can't get us out of our heart
Can't get you out of my country

Well it's the same all over the world
Each and every town
If you're getting your own way
Must be putting somebody else down
Yeah you want more than anyone
To stop the other guy's fun
You've got the robe of authority
You got the stick and a gun

But I tell you now
You know we can't get you out of our mind
Can't get you out of our heart
Can't get you out of our country
Can't get us out of our mind
Can't get us out of our hour
Can't get you out of our country
