The tanks were coming down the road
To stop a freedom protest,
The Olympic Committee with a heavy burden
Has failed to pass the test.

Terror squads from
Beijing
Are running riot across
Tibet,
But the amnesiacs at
Lake Geneva
Say, ‘It’s very easy to forget.’

They forget about the army tanks
That went through
China in ’89,
They forget about the innocents
Students who brutally died.

An evil regime slaughtered
Students and workers without regret,
When political correctness demands though
How quickly we all forget.

And now the evil regime
Gets to host the Olympic Games,
The Good and the Decent protest
The soulless compete in shame.
