The Lyrics

And now, it turns out, in two separate interviews toward the end of his life, former President Gerald Ford supported the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, but said George W. Bush -- along with Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of Defense Don Rumsfeld, both former Chiefs of Staff to Ford -- totally screwed up the war. Sounds like ol' Jerry was a lot smarter than people thought.
(instrumental opening)

I once had a war.
Or should I say
it once had me.

It showed me my doom.
I knew it could.
Iraq ain't good.

I joined in the Army.
Was told I'd get sent anywhere.
So I looked around
and said, "Not Iraq, any but there!"

I sat in a tank
biding my time
calling Bush slime.
We drove until two
and then I said
bomb, buddy's dead.

(instrumental break)

Come home and find Bush still thinks
he's doing the work of the Lord.
It turns out he's slapped down
by last words of Gerald R. Ford!

And when I awoke
still I will groan
from war he's blown.
So he is a liar.
Impeach we should.
Iraq ain't good.

(instrumental close)

Good up to date version of a sick song. If I'm correct Norwegian Wood if about a fire bug who was mad because a girl wouldn't do it with him.

4-5-5. Some pacing issues. While I think the job has been done already in the Iraq and the Yanks should now get home, I do feel compassion for those kids who are sent there. Iraq isn't exactly Viet Nam; it is Yugoslavia.
