The Lyrics

That was the day Hussein
The soldiers finally came
Thank God, you said
You sure did take your time
It's been eight months, you cried
Don't care if I live or die
I can't go on just
huddling in this drain.

They took you to the old Baghdadi airport
then moved you on to whereabouts unknown
No, you said I'll take no heathen water
Just kindly despatch servants for my throne.

That was the day Hussein
where you did end your reign
did your gun jam?
and do you blame the sand?
Are you a fool Hussein?
You'll be our tool Hussein
That spider hole
I bet you miss it bad

We want facts - you'd better soon start talking
but you just told them lie upon lie
I'll tell the truth if you will, you sat smiling
Hussein, have you gone and lost your tiny mind?

We'll tell you what to say
For we will have our way
Hanging's too good
for shit the likes of you
You'll tell us what we want
or you'll be hurt and stomped
You will be tamed - and verballed anyway

On your head there sat a fair few million
You know it was your friends who turned you in
We've got more cash than you - you paltry peasant
Don't you know the US always wins?

Are you in pain Hussein?
Or just insane Hussein?
Good old Tikrit
I bet they mourn your loss.
Now play the game Hussein
Start naming names Hussein
We'll have our way
No matter what the cost.

I did all the UN had instructed
Outsourced those WMD's to far off lands
Don't forget - it's you who are destructive
Iraqi blood for oil on your own hands

So who's to blame Hussein
For all the shame Hussein
Three million Kurds
And every one a thief?
We'll make you pay, Hussein
Oh yes, you'll pay Hussein
We'll make you meet our commander in chief

He thinks you're great Hussein
Head on a plate Hussein
You've served him well
Forever and a day
You've saved the day Hussein
Another term his gain
That spider hole!
Oh yes that was the day!
