I moved out to Langley recently
With a plain and simple dream;
Wanna infiltrate some third-world place
And topple their regime.

Those men in black with their matching suitcases;
Where everything's on a need-to-know basis;
Agents got that swagger;
Everyone's so cloak and dagger.

I'm feelin' nervous but I'm really kinda wishing
For an undercover mission

That's when the red alert came on the radio
And I put my earpiece on!
Got my dark sunglasses on!
And I had my weapon drawn!

So I get my handcuffs,
My cyanide pills,
My classified dossier!

Tappin' the phones like yeah, shreddin' the files like yeah,
Memorized all the enemy spies I've got to neutralize today.

Yeeeaaahhh, it's a party in the CIA!
Yeeeaaahhh, it's a party in the CIA!

I've done a couple of crazy things that have almost gotten me dismissed,
Like terminate some head of state who wasn't even on my list.

Burn that microfilm buddy, will you,
I'd tell you why but then I'd have to kill you!

You need a quickie confession?
Well, start a waterboardin' session!

No hurry on this south American dictator
I'll assassinate him later
That's when he walked right in my laser sights,
And my silencer was on,
And my silencer was on,
And another target's gone!

Yeah, we've got our black ops all over the world, from Kazakhstan to Bombay;
Payin' the bribes like yeah, pluggin' the leaks like yeah;
Interrogating the scum of the earth, we'll break them by the break of day!

Yeeeaaahhh, it's a party in the CIA!
Yeeeaaahhh, it's a party in the CIA!

Need a country destabilized?
Look no further, we're your guys!
We've got snazzy suits and ties,
And a better dental plan than the FBI's!

Better put your hands up and get in the van,
Or else you'll get blown away!
Stagin' a coup like yeah,
Brainwashin' moles like yeah,
We only torture the folks we don't like,
You're probably gonna be OK!

Yeeeaaahhh, it's a party in the CIA!
Yeeeaaahhh, it's a party in the CIA!

    Listening to this is the easiest way to get on a watchlist. But we only torture the folks we don't like, so you're probably gonna be ok.

    Has anyone seen the video? Notice how it dosen't always fit the song. Like ″walked right in my laser sights″ when the agent is using only a silenced pistol with obvious iron sights at about a point blank range when he's geting a drink at the bar, not even looking down whatever sight he happens to be using
