“Finishing What He Started”
At first you’d caught us completely off guard
Using your cronies you hit us at home, real hard
Killing thousands and effecting the lives of many more
After identifying the source, troops were out the door
We said we’d come after you and that we’d kill you
On the hunt we searched the caves full of mildew
For years you were elusive, like chasing a ghost
Top on the list of those who are wanted most
Slash his throat or blown away was mostly preferred
We’re getting close is the last thing we heard
Found in a fortress cowering alone with no friends
You can’t hide forever and you know how it ends
Finally shot in the head was the best and only way
With a bullet inscribed “To Osama, Sincerely the U.S. of A.”
