Yes, I am the dictator
The more guns I got, the better
Yes, I am the liquidator
I carry that old biretta

You know there once was freedom
And you know how dangerous that can be
The people used to dance and sing
They used to run wild in the streets

But now I am the voice, howling from your radio
From my amour plated Cadillac
You'll hear what I say goes
You'll hear what I say goes

Yes, I am the dictator
I satisfy the U.S. team
Because I always do my killing in the woods
And I keep the city gutter clean

You know there once was freedom
You know how dangerous that can be
And all the people used to dance and sing
And they used to run wild in the streets

Because I am the voice, howling from your radio
From my amour plated Cadillac
You'll hear what I say goes
What I, what I say goes, what I say goes

Yes, I am the crusader
'Cause I'm twenty long years in exile
But but but but but now I am the invader
And I'm never never gonna die

Yes, I am the dictator
My name is on your ballot sheet
Until my box has got your, your cross
You know this form is incomplete

You know there once was freedom
You know how dangerous that can be
The people used to dance and sing
And they used to run wild in the streets

But now I am the voice, howling from your radio
From my amour plated Cadillac
You'll hear what I say goes
You'll hear what I say goes
