  • I'm just a middle-aged middle-eastern camel herdin' man
    I've got a little two bedroom cave here in north Afghanistan
    Things used to be real nice and they got outta hand
    Since they moved in
    They call themselves the Taliban
    Ooo, ooo the Taliban, baby
    I ain't seen my wife's face since they came here
    They make her wear a scarf over her head that covers her from ear to ear
    She loves the desert and the hot, white sand but now
    Man she just like me
    She can't stand the Taliban
    Ooo, ooo the Taliban, baby
    But you know someday soon we're both gonna saddle up and it'll be
    Ride camel, ride
    My ol' lady she'll be here with me
    Just smilin' ride by my side
    We should do just fine out around Palestine
    Or maybe Turkministan
    We'll bid a fair adieu and flip the finger to the Taliban
    Now they attacked New York City 'cause they thought they could win
    Said they would stand and fight until the very bloody end
    Mr. Bush got on the phone with Iraq and Iran he said now
    You sons a' bitches, you better not be doin' any business with the Taliban
    Ooo, ooo the Taliban, baby
    Now we prayed to Allah with all of our might
    Until those big U.S. jets came flyin' in one night
    They dropped little bombs all over the holy land
    Man you should've seen 'em run, like rabbits they ran, the Taliban
    Ooo, ooo the Taliban, baby
    But you know someday soon we're both gonna saddle up and it'll be
    Ride camel, ride
    My ol' lady she'll be here with me
    Just smilin' ride by my side
    We should do just fine out around Palestine
    Or maybe Turkministan
    We'll bid a fair adieu and flip a couple fingers to the Taliban
    We'll bid a fair adieu and give a big boner to the Taliban Writer/s: Scott Emerick, Toby Keith

  • Mallory from Vineland, NjI agree with you. My husband was a soldier and he loved Toby Keith. He got a kick out of this song too...
  • Darrell from Thomasville, GaI heard a USAF general say on the capitol steps of Keith's home state of Oklahoma that he hoped the Taliban knew that some of those bombs bringing hellfire upon them were delivered by American women who were allowed to attend university, a big no-no in Bin Ladenville. Not his exact words, but pretty close. Toby is a soldier's songwriter and they love him for it!
