Do you think Gaddafi’s still in Trip’li?

Do you think Gaddafi’s still in Trip’li
I don’t think he’ll be there for long
Do you think Gaddafi’s still in Trip’li
His compound can not be that strong

He could have retired to Venezuela
And taken his horrible sons
But he was too foolish to get going
Relying on thugs armed with guns

Do you think Gaddafi’s still in Trip’li
I don’t think he’ll be there for long
Do you think Gaddafi’s still in Trip’li
His compound can not be that strong

Dictators never learn they never want to
They listen to yes-men for years
And when they outstayed their people’s patience
You know it will all end in tears

Do you think Gaddafi’s still in Trip’li
I don’t think he’ll be there for long
Do you think Gaddafi’s still in Trip’li
His compound can not be that strong

Do you think Gaddafi’s still in Trip’li
Holed up in a cave like a beast
If he’s never seen again in Trip’li
The Libyans won’t mind in the least!
