Is this the new anthem of the Bush administration?

An excerpt from an old 'Ndrangheta (Calabrian Mafia) tune - first in the original Calabrian dialect of Italian, then in English:

L' omert cumandamentu
Esti leggi saggia e giusta
Cu prestau lu giuramentu
Lu sgarrari assai ci custa

Occhiu tengu ma nun viu
Sugnu surdu e puru mutu
Sacciu i reguli di Diu
Ma restu sempri nu tambutu

Omert, omert
Chista leggi societ
Leggi chi non perduna
A cu faci infamit


Secrecy is a commandment
It's a law that's just and wise
Whosoever breaks his oath
He must pay - he knows the price

I have eyes, but I see nothing
I am deaf and mute as well
For I know the laws of God
And always keep them to myself

Code of silence, code of silence
It's the law of our society
A law that does not forgive
Those who break their secrecy
