The Lyrics

Ok, i'm not as politcally knoledgeable as some people on this site but i thought i'd give this a go from a common publics view! Bit of a change of topic from my previous two parodies and not the best subject for a humorous one but i hope uz like it all the same!
(Blair) And you said "let's go to war"
And i hadn't the brains to think for myself.
And at our next elections votes will fall,
To Hilary and Cameron themselves.

(Bush) Hey Tony Buddy, it seems we're running out of oil,
I've known for long enough that Iraq holds a surplus of this
It's hard to justify, we need something to say,
we must think of some clever and fanciful claim,
but i have and idea, we could just spin a lie,
in this "axis-of-evil" we'll say "nucular" weapons they hide!

You will back me all the way,
and go along with every single thing i say!

You are obliged, to remain silent,
if questioned by, the public just why...

(Blair) ...You said "let's go to war"
And i hadn't the brains to think for myself.
Tonight another British plane will fall,
And more lives will be lost thanks to ourselves!

I see our soldiers, they're geting killed out in Iraq.

(Bush) They're following orders, they know they might not come

(Blair) But should we send them home tonight, Iraq don't need
them anymore?

(Bush) Now Saddam has gone it's time to move in on the oil!

And now that we're in control, Iraq is in a state,
And there's so many things that we just can't replace.
Though i struggle with words i can still pick a fight,
And i couldn't care less 'bout our soldiers or the Iraqi's

(Blair) I'll still back you all the way,
Once i've worked out exactly what you're trying to say!

(Bush) (Blair nodding obediantly)

You are... ...obliged
To re... ...main silent
When... ...questioned by...

(Blair) ...the public just why you said "let's go to war"
And i hadn't the brains to think for myself.
And soon the magistrates hammer should fall,
And sentence us like anybody else!

And i know you know the same
(Bush) When we're stood there in the dock,
Will we know what to say? Oh yeah!

Admit nothing!
Don't change a word,
They're oil's our gold,
Don't change a word! Shhh...

(Public) Oooohhhh, this is the moment we've been waiting for,
Oh yeah, if the law is practised right,
then they will both be tried for war crimes,
and sentenced as criminals tonight, oh yeah!

(Both) The Iraqi's feel the same,
They'll wonder all their lives,
Will the moment come,
When they'll see peace again?

(Blair) And you said "let's go to war"...

(Bush) So many times i didn't listen to what the public did say...

(Blair) Coz they said "don't go to war"...

(Bush) So many lies we're finding so hard to now explain...

(Blair) Why you said "let's go to war"...

(Bush) So many lives that we've now turned upside down...

(Blair) Coz you said "let's go to war"...

(Bush) So many times we've seen our boys blown off the ground...

(Blair) When you said "let's go to war"...

(Bush) So many dreams for so many won't come true...

(Blair) And i hadn't the brains to think for myself...

(Bush) You'll still do what i say when you follow my orders like you

(Blair) And you said "let's go to war"
(Both) And i hadn't the brains to think for myself
And now our corrupt plans have ta'en a fall,
And we've been found out by everyone else!!!...
