Guevara the terror, fresh Kangol wearer,
Ill rhyme-slayer from the '60s era!
Revolting heavy metal rebel blood-spiller,
Me and my guerrillas are a squad of killers! (Hoo!)
I'm known worldwide for my steely-eyed look.
You're famous 'cause of Alan Moore's third best book!
All the children say, "We will be like Che!"
Asthmatic, but I'll take your breath away. (Gasp!)
You tried to rebel against James the first.
Here's a tip for your next plot: try to rehearse!
I've got my face on a magnet on your roommate's fridge.
Your head is on a spike up on London Bridge!
You had one job, cabrón: to strike a matchstick!
Got caught with a fuse like your bars: not lit!
You should have stayed anonymous, Epic Fail Guy.
Treat this battle like the gallows, and take another dive.
As a communist, it must really hurt
That your face has been cheapened, weakened, besmirched,
Being plastered on posters, coasters, and shirts,
Making capitalists rich off of you on merch!
Right, I'm a pious man, and I fight for the Lord!
I would cut you, but I don't want your sweat on my sword!
I was tortured until I could hardly sign my name,
And listening to you felt pretty much the same!
(Ooh!) Face it, Ernesto: you're Castro, but less so!
He's Cuba Commander, you're more of the Destro!
Revolt all you want, I don't give two Guy Fawkes!
But look at Venezuela: what you're fighting for sucks!
Sucks? Guy, you died for the Catholics:
A group with a bad "touching little boys" habit!
And this porn star pilgrim look, what's up with that?
It's more like V for very bad hat!
Oh! What's the Fawkes say now?
(Ya-ya-ya-ya-ya-ya!) When they cut your junk out!
I'm the hardest Marxist ever graced a banknote!
You're an error-prone terrorist! Penny for the scapegoat!
Don't try to boast 'bout your banknotes with Guido!
You muddled your economy like mint in a mojito!
This very battle disproves your communist initiative:
These rhyme skills are not evenly distributed!
(Augh!) I'm Catholic, I've got Mass when I'm rapping!
You're an ump-Che! That's Bay of Pigs Latin!
After what just happened, you should retire!
Is it the 5th of November? 'Cause I'm on fire!
I'm known worldwide for my renegade look.
All the people say, "We will be like Che!"
You had one job, Guido: to light a matchstick!
Should have stayed anonymous, Epic Fail Guy.
Face facts, Ernesto: you're like Castro, but less so!
He was the Cuba Commander, and you, you're basically Destro!
As a socalist, I imagine it must hurt
Revolt all you want, I don't give two Guy Fucks!
But ask Venezuela: what you're fighting for sucks!
A group with a bad "touching little boy" habit!
It must be V for very bad hat!
Whoa! What's the Fawkes say now?
