The Lyrics

Ah, look at the Iraqi people
Ah, look at the Iraqi people

Iraqi woman picks up the rice from the road
Where food truck has been
Lives in a dream
Waits in hope daily
Wearing a face that she keeps
Veiled outside the door
What is it for?

All Iraqi people, where will their help come from?
All Iraqi people, they've got to remain strong

Saddam Hussein he's writing the words
Of a nightmare that we all can hear
Iraq's full of fear
Look at him working
Killing his folks in clear sight now
What does he care?
How can he dare?

All Iraqi people, where will their help come from?
All Iraqi people, they've got to remain strong

Ah, look at the Iraqi people
Ah, look at the Iraqi people

Iraqi woman died at his hands
And was buried along with no name
Saddam's to blame
Mister Hussein we're wiping the grin
From his face as he heads to his grave
He can't be saved

All Iraqi people, they've got to remain strong
All Iraqi people, hang on, it won't be long
