The Lyrics

The original was recorded by Harry Belafonte, the Kingston Trio and others. I use the Rockapella version cuz I like it a lot! This may be a bit dark, folks, but forgive me if I feel no sympathy for the devil!
Hey, Back to back, ha ha ha ha, hey, belly to belly
Yes my friends
Hey, Back to back, ha ha ha ha, hey, belly to belly

'Twas an Iraqi jamboree
Made Saddam's bunker a cemetery
Oh, 'twas an Iraqi jamboree
Sent Saddam to join chemical Ali.

Baathists from all parts of the oil land
Some thought they were great tactic-i-ans
They all came to join old Saddam
And so we fed them a bunker bomb!

Then they were singing

Back to back, belly to belly
Well, they don't rule a thing 'cause they're stone dead already
Back to back, oh oh oh, belly to belly
An Iraqi jamboree

Old Saddam Hussein he wouldn't behave
See how's he's dancing out of the grave
In one hand he's holding some sarin gas
But he won't use it because we killed his @$$!

You know the big bomber starts to make his run
Soon the little jerk was blown to kingdom come!
One bystander, he had this to say
"It was a trip to see the floor just break away"

Hah! And they were singing

Back to back, belly to belly
Well, they don't rule a thing 'cause they're stone dead already
Back to back, oh oh oh, belly to belly
An Iraqi jamboree

And they were singing
Back to back, belly to belly
Well, they don't rule a thing 'cause they're stone dead already
Back to back, oh oh oh, belly to belly
An Iraqi jamboree

They should not have flown into the World Trades
Cause now we'll topple all the terror States
Like the biggest joke from Beirut to Qom
The tyrant who called Iraq his home

Hah, what they do, huh

Back to back, belly to belly
Well, they don't rule a thing 'cause they're stone dead already
Back to back, oh oh oh, belly to belly
An Iraqi jamboree

Question: Rockapella? Like the dudes who did the songs on the "Carmen Sandiego" game show?

Yup. That's them. My son has a copy he got from, uh, (shhh) Napster. Funny as heck. Thanks for the vote!
