The Lyrics

MRE's = Meals Ready to Eat. I believe the quote of the day from Mr. Rumsfeld is, "Stuff happens! Freedom is untidy!"

On a Sunni afternoon
Anything we'd like to choose
I can't imagine anything that's better
Hey, look, I snagged a brand-new V-neck sweater!
My baby's got her some imported cheddar!

On a crowded avenue
We got nothin' left to lose
The poor Iraqi people need some meat
We're stormin' markets 'cause we like to eat
We're gettin' sick of all these MRE's, just

With Iraqi attitude
Jackin' cars and grabbin' food


We keep on spendin' Sunni days this way
We're gonna rip off every Coke display
I sound like Donald Rumsfeld, hear me say,
"Now that Iraq is free,
Merchandise a-plenty!"

(Look at us haulin')
Baghdad, Basra or Mosul
Nation-buildin's pretty cool,
No, no, no no?

ęBob Gomez 2003

This song is not half bad. But, Why are you treating the Iraqis so terrible?
Bob Gomez - June 13, 2003 - Report this comment
Josh, I can see why you might say that. My intent in this song is more to share the perspective of a people who, having been subjected to a ruthless dictatorship, are now subjected to a ruthless bombing campaign followed by lawlessness, continuing joblessness, political chaos, and apparent lack of contingency planning on the part of the world's lone superpower. I have little doubt that, if I were in the same circumstances, I would be looting too as a way to feed my family. Sometimes parody is a way to see the humanity in an inhuman world. Thanks for your comment. d;:^)

Sunni days? Great! Whoever's giving this the 1s needs to go take a Ba'ath because they're full of Shi'ite!!!
