The Lyrics

US Special Forces executed a daring raid against the hideout of one of the world's most wanted terrorists, causing said terrorist to execute himself. That's the way to wage war.
Flight of stealth helicopters
His time ran out
Raid at night, it is never easy
Flew through the sky o'er desert sands

To take him by surprise (his blood-stained hands)
Lost not a single one
Lightning raid in the evening to kill him

Thug insane (of ill fame)
Was Baghdadi (al-Baghdadi)
(That bitch) Son o'bitch still free
We will take him (we will break him)
Not this time (not this time)
(We'll see) We'll see he won't escape to live

Helicopter stealthy (Your time's up)
We wanted you to know
We've the means and the reason to kill you

(Lengthy musical interlude)

Such a shame! (killed and maimed)
Was Baghdadi (al-Baghdadi)
(No ditch) He's been dumped at sea
Chased by canine (chased by canine)
Panic time (panic time)
(His kids) His kids would get no chance to live

Donald Trump has told us (told us what)
What we really want to know
Had the means, and the reason, we killed him

(More '60's psychedelic music)

It was sort of hard to follow the pace at first. Maybe breaking the lines differently would have helped. Keep submitting.

Used the lines from lyric site Genius.com.I've always had trouble trying to convey songs with "echo" effects, such as this one. Sounds OK on youtube, but awkward to read. I hope to keep submitting, haven't been here for a while.
