The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

War is the ticket; bombs from airplanes.
Bomb Baghdad and target Hussein.
Point of no return, Saddam's gonna burn.
Bush Baby is doin' this for Father.

Few hundred billion that we gotta spend.
After Saddam, it's just war without end.
Point of no return, Saddam's gonna burn.
Bush Baby is doin' this for Father.

Shrub's avenging his father, stealin' oil from Iraq;
That what this war is for.
Weapons of destruction that Hussein "may have someday"
Are reasons for war... any day now...

War is the ticket; bombs from airplanes.
Bomb Baghdad and target Hussein.
Point of no return, Saddam's gonna burn.
Bush Baby is doin' this for Father.

Shrub's avenging his father, stealin' oil from Iraq;
That what this war is for.
Weapons of destruction that Hussein "may have someday"
Are reasons for war... any day now...

War is the ticket; bombs from airplanes.
Bomb Baghdad and target Hussein.
Point of no return, Saddam's gonna burn.
Bush Baby is doin' this for Father.

Bush Baby is doin' this for Father.
Bush Baby is doin' this for Father...

(instrumental fade)
