The Lyrics

Good riddance, Muammar Khaddaffi, Osama bin Laden, Kim Jong Il and other those petty tyrants who have kicked the bucket this year. Here's a song for you all to show how ridiculous you are in the eyes of the rest of the world.
I'm "Sir" for you now, and you will obey
I'm overlord of land and you go my way
Now command of the army is in my hands
And I want to rule, so I want to be a tinpot dicator,
Tinpot dictator!

Mine's a dirt-poor people in a dirt-poor land
But I'm king of the hill, that's where I stand
I make my living off the foreign aid
It's a lousy job but I want to be a tinpot dictator,
Tinpot dictator!

Tintpot dictator (tinpot dictator...)

It's a thousand graves, give or take a few,
I'll execute more in a week or two.
Now firing squads, that is my style
You'll love me now and you don't call me a tinpot dictator,
Tinpot dictator!

For me it's the same if you're left or right
as long as I'll have money overnight
I have a title that is long and proud
And junta behind me, a tinpot dictator
Tinpot dictator!

Tintpot dictator (tinpot dictator...)

Tintpot dictator (tinpot dictator...)
Tintpot dictator (tinpot dictator...)

CG, it is hard to get worse than Warren Harding. Both Obama and GWB are saintly geniuses compared to Harding.
