The Lyrics

We didn't want Viet Nam and we don't want Gulf War II
Gimme an B!
B!
Gimme an U!
U!
Gimme an S!
S!
Gimme an H!
H!
What's that spell ?
BUSH!
What's that spell ?
BUSH!
What's that spell ?
BUSH!

Yeah, come on all of you, big strong men,
Uncle Sam needs your help again.
He's got himself in a terrible jam
Way down yonder with Sa-dam
So put down your books and pick up a gun,
We're gonna have a whole lotta fun.

(CHORUS) And it's one, two, three,
What are we fighting for ?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
Next stop is to kill Sa-dam;
And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

Well, come on generals, let's move fast;
Your big chance has come at last.
Gotta go out and get those towel heads
The only good Iraqi is the one who's dead
And you know that peace can only be won
When we've blown 'em all to kingdom come.

CHORUS

Well, come on Wall Street, don't move slow,
Why man, this is war au-go-go.
There's plenty good money to be made
By supplying the Army with the tools of the trade,
Just hope and pray that if they drop the bomb,
They don't drop it on an innocent mom.

CHORUS

Well, come on mothers throughout the land,
Pack your boys off to kill Sa-dam.
Come on fathers, don't hesitate,
Send 'em off before it's too late.
Be the first one on your block
To have your boy come home in a box.

And it's one, two, three
What are we fighting for ?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
Next stop is to kill Sa-dam.
And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

Your pacing is dead on, but that's because you barely changed the song. You basically just updated it for Iraq by subbing "Saddam" for "Vietnam" and making a very few other appropriate updates. I think you had a good idea, but you didn't go anywhere with it.
