The Lyrics

In a moment of frightening introspection, George W. Bush begins to sing.....
"I Bombed Iraq Today"

I bombed Iraq today
To see how it would feel
My troops were dressed to kill
It all seemed so surreal
A quarter million strong
All braced for the attack
I can't admit I'm wrong
How could I pull them back?
Now what have I done?
My former friends
Say my state's a rogue
So who needs the U.N.?

Now I'll have it all
My empire of greed
I will beat you down
I will make you bleed

We'll call it "Shock and Awe"
10,000 guided bombs
Will rain down over y'all
Oh, sh*t, we missed Saddam
A million human shields
Defend Saddam Hussein
I'll torch them like oil fields
Let Clinton feel their pain
Now what have I done?
My former friends
Call me a butthole
So who needs the U.N.?

Now I'll have it all
My empire of greed
I will beat you down
I will make you bleed

So what if Gulf War II
Creates more terror cells?
Can't think what else to do
I'll see you all in hell

No doubt the next thing Georgie got bombed was...himself. Great job.

Ooh, I see someone else has a dark side... 5,5,5, not necessarily for "funny" but poignant.

Captures the feeling of Trent Reznor┤s version very well, but don┤t you get stuck in a downward spiral now, you hear!
