The kind of act we'd make a tort of.

You've stolen missile formulas away.
The Times has got a new report of
Some radar secrets also snatched. But, hey,
We're really very sorry, sort of.

We have to say again we don't advise
That you continue the export of
The shmattas that your convicts make. But, guys,
We're really very sorry, sort of.
