The Lyrics

For the 5th anniversary of the start of The Wrong War...
This is a war with 27 generals
Five long years, four thousand killed there in Iraq

mmmm yeah
mmmm yeah

This won't be the war we fight to end all wars
There were no weapons destruction
We have been there for way to long, the job not done
The results are not delightful

Bush is advised by 27 generals
Bring it on, mission completed, the sign said

mmmm yeah
mmmm yeah

You might wonder where's Osama, wanted man
Did we just give up the searching?
Are we in the wrong place fighting the wrong war?
Was George simply being spiteful?

mmmm yeah
mmmm yeah

Yes I saw the towers crumble to the ground
I was in New York that morning
And I wonder why Osama's not dead yet
President picked the wrong target

Yes I saw the towers crumble to the ground
I was in New York that morning
And I wonder why Osama's not dead yet
President picked the wrong target

27 generals
27 generals

Sir Mason, this is the best of your Trilogy parodies. I wonder where the o-Sama is too; and i agree that something should be done to avenge those tragic folks in NYC.
