The Lyrics

An e-mail from Saddam Hussein to Donald Rumsfeld intercepted by the CIA.
I been hearin' you don't care about my whereabouts.
You don't know and you don't care and you don't have no doubts.
Well, I'm not dead, in fact I'd say my outlook is sublime.
I'm in my bunker safe and sound and havin' quite a time.

Countin' shrapnel in the wall,
That don't bother me at all.
Playin' dominoes with Mike.
(He's my Saddam look-alike.)
Smokin' cigarettes and watchin' news on CNN
Now don't tell me, I'm not gonna win.

Last night I taped an interview with old friend Pete Arnett.
You may not like his point of view, it's all you're gonna get.
I must admit the smell down here is getting pretty rank,
But I can't believe he had the nerve to tell me that I stank!

Countin' bloodstains on the wall,
That don't freak me out at all.
Lookin' out at empty fields -
Where are all those human shields?
Smokin' cigarettes and watchin' news on CNN
Now don't tell me, I'm not gonna win.

Glad you can't see me, Allah knows, I prob'ly look a fright.
I haven't bathed in seven days and now they've cut the light.
Uh, this may be the last you hear from President Saddam -
I think I've just been introduced to the "Mother of All Bombs."

What's that rumble in the wall?
It don't bother me at all.
Did the ceiling shake a bit?
Not that I'm concerned with it.
Smokin' cigarettes and watchin' news on CNN
Now don't tell me, I'm not gon...

"We're sorry. You've been disconnected. Goodbye!"

"CNN" rhymes nicely with "win" if you're the Statler brothers. Perfect.
