The Lyrics


When we found ourselves in times of trouble,
This motherf***** came, not free-
Speaking words of deceit: Chalabi.
He is a force of darkness
Standing next to Lucifer Cheney.
Speaking words of deceit: Chalabi.
Chalabi, Chalabi.
Whispers words of deceit: Chalabi.

And when the dopes and artless people
Living on The Hill agree,
Finally, the answer: Screw Chalabi!
Although there are two parties there was
Still a chance that they might see-
And they did-the answer: Screw Chalabi!
Chalabi, Chalabi, yeah.
They've given the answer: Screw Chalabi!

His data-at best, cloudy,
Still the dim bulbs bought it in D.C. . . .
Shined 'em on for months-wow! Chalabi.
They woke up when he threw thick,
Secret files to Mullah Khameinei;
Speaking words of deceit: Chalabi.
Chalabi, Chalabi.
Now the only answer
Is to chill Chalabi.

Interesting political twist on an old Beatles tune. Pretty good.

Dawg: Ahmed Chalabi is an Iraqi piece of shit who provided much of the bogus info that got us into the current quagmire. Cheney and Rumsfeld were paying him about $350K/month for his "information." They finally cut him off now that he stands accused of passing secret info to Iran. He's lower than a cockroach. Lex is short for lexical, having to do with words.

John, Great job again. You have captured the true "essence" of Chalabi and yes, it truly stinks...
