The rule of the tyrants decline

The year, 1979

From uganda to nicaragua

Its bombs and bullets all the time

So they corrupt, so they vile

So its coup after coup all the while

Human rights they violate

They think they too damn great

So in disgrace now they live in exile

Gairy is a wanted man

Idi amin is a wanted man

Shah of iran tried so hard to survive

He too was wanted dead or alive

Strikes, demonstrations & wars

Injustice is always the cause

Politicians turn too soon from

Poor people into tycoons

Corruption must bring harass

South african vorster resign in disgrace

Muzurewa take away ian smith place

The uganda devil was easily cat straddled

Beaten up and chased, what a waste.

Gairy is a wanted man

Bokassa is a wanted man

Ali bhutto try so hard to survive

He too was wanted dead or alive.

The shah had a short time to live

Because the ayatollah dont forgive

When you see church ruling state

With pure vengeance and hate

Situation must be explosive

General somoza from nicaragua

Thought it was easy with the sandanistas

With the help of venezuela, panama and cuba

They kick him straight to america

Gairy is a wanted man

Park chung hee was a wanted man

Achem pong tried so hard to survive

He too was wanted dead or alive

Gairy is a wanted man

Idi amin is a wanted man

Shah of iran tried so hard to survive

He too was wanted dead or alive

Bang...youre dead
