about

The news I based my entry on is the article "Britain and France 'using Qatar to arm Libyan rebels'", which appeared in The Times, June, 25th 2011. The song rather loosely on the headline.

lyrics

Dear People of Libya: Let's be honest for a change
The way you spell your county's name is pretty strange

We don't understand your culture
We don't understand your faith
We don't understand your way of live and the speeches Gaddafi gave
We will deal with you like we dealt with him: in a strictly-business way
We don't care about your national pride - It doesn't matter anyway

All we want is your oil
All we want is your oil
All we want is your oil - Someone must take the fall
All we want is your oil - That's all

We don't care about your freedom
We don't care about your lives
We provide you all with weapons but we don't care who survives
I'm glad we talked it over - I'm glad you understand
The only thing we care about is the oil underneath the sand

All we want is your oil - It's really not your call
All we want is your oil - It's ours after all
All we want is your oil - To refuel at the mall
All we want is your oil - That's all

We hope that in the future there will be fewer complications
Sincerely Yours, the NATO member nations

PS: Dear People of Libya, please don't take it personally
