The Lyrics

is he really goin after him?
well. there he is, lets ask him
dubya, is that saddam you're hunting?
gee it must be great shooting at him
is he getting shock and awe today?
by the way, where'd you meet him?

I saw him in the desert storm,
he stormed into kuwait, you see
you get the picture? (yes we see)
that's when I yelled for the leader of iraq

my dad was always putting him down (down down)
he said the u.n had let him down
(whatya mean, they said go find someone new?)
he said son when you're the president.,
I asked him what he meant,
that's when he said kill the leader of iraq


my dad smiled, and waved it goodbye
his fears were beginning to show
as we left kuwait on that dusty night
I begged him to just not go
but if he heard I'll never know

get out get out get out

I felt so helpless what could I do?
clinton was in until two thousand and two
the u.n they're just talking there
they'd hide him for years, but I don't care
that's why I'll get the leader of iraq

the leader of iraq - now he's gone
the leader of iraq - now he's gone
the leader of iraq - now he's gone
the leader of iraq - now he's gone

Good parody - but Clinton's term as president ended in January, 2001 (not 2002).

Except for the date...this is a great parody!

Putting politics aside -- it takes a lot of strength, just about the only exercise I get, along with exercising my freedom of expression -- the song has three verses, not two (and unlike me with "Blinded By the Light"/"Finding Amiright," you can't cop out and say, "That's the way the most familiar version goes"), rhyming "down" with "down," I'm not down with that, and you had Bush Sr. saying "Get him" when he had his chance and refused and still justifies it. And the worst criticism of all...It's not funny! Except for Bush Jr. saying Clinton will be in until 2002. It makes Dubya sound like he can't do math. Does that need a punchline?

Just a subpar ripoff of the original 1992?? parody.
