The Lyrics

Be sure to check out Robert Lund's recording of this at It was written and recorded in March, which, in dogs-of-war years, is forever ago. But, hey, if the guy's still alive...
My friend the pacifist
Holds love-ins in her disco
She marches naked through
D.C. and San Francisco

I'm not a fan of war
I find myself conflicted
One thing I know for sure:
Saddam Hussein's a dickhead

I - wanna blow up Saddam
Wanna shove a smart bomb
Up his beret
I gotta tell ya that I
Wanna splatter his yard
With his Republican Guard
And son Uday
I wanna blow up Saddam

I feel Iraqi pains
They're sanctioned, Bushed, and Powelled
But that ends the day Hussein's
Disarmed and disemboweled

What's with Germany and France
Refusing to give war a chance?
They must've spaced off World War II
To make them act the way they do
Maybe we should get them too!

I - wanna blow up Saddam
He's been a dork for so long
Let's nail him good
Bet Mister Rogers would say
Blow the bastard away
So it's a beautiful day
In Ali-hood

I - wanna blow up Saddam
This ain't a new Vietnam
It's more like my prom

Nice work!!
Claude Prez - August 09, 2003 - Report this comment
Loved the recording, too. The conflicted/dickhead line was my favorite, not just because it's a great rhyme but it kind of captures the way most people seem to feel in a memorable way. Great job as always. - August 19, 2003 - Report this comment
Belated thanks, Billy & Pat & Claude 4 Prez. Now that the Husseins are gone, I'm hoping Iraq will survive our efforts to save it.

This song kicks butt!!!!! - July 03, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanx, Tim. Maybe Saddam's sentence will be to be blown up live on pay-per-view. That would rule.

I'm a tad late at voting seeing that Saddam is already "Bushed and Powelled", but it's a great song. - July 03, 2005 - Report this comment
Digging skeletons out of my closet, eh, Matthias?

HAY SPAAFF THAT'S REALLY GOOD!!!..But can I ask one question with out sounding harsh, why does Rober Lund sound like a girl, who is ovisly A Shreyl Crow's clone!! LOL - July 27, 2006 - Report this comment
Spoof-Man: Ah. Good question. Vocals were done by Dori Townsend. It's now correct on my site -after only three (and almost a half) years.

I love this parody; it matched the pacing of the original perfectly. I think it's the truth. I hope Iraq quits messing around with their joke idea of a trial and just executes him. I agree with ClaudePres; they said: 'The conflicted/dickhead line was my favorite, not just because it's a great rhyme but it kind of captures the way most people seem to feel in a memorable way.' It's exactly how I feel. - December 23, 2006 - Report this comment
Thanks, Kelly. My view of the war has changed a lot since this was written (hasn't everyone's?), so some of it would be very different were I writing it today. I regret the prom line, for example. But, yeah, the conflicted/dickhead thing still holds.
