The Lyrics

Donald Rumsfeld: "We may be in for a long, hard slog through the mud...."
Welcome to quagmire 2003-4! Thank you so much, Bush
administration!
Imagine jobs, and phones
That work
Restoring electricity
That went berserk
And institutions that aren't run
By Baathist jerks
Iraqis together..........

Ethnic minorities
With civil rights
And Sunnis that won't pound the Kurds
Or poor Shiites
And no more bombs exploding in
The streets at night
Iraqis together..........

Sirens, screaming, bombers in body bags, too
From suicides
Man, war's shitty, maybe us guys will be screwed
For all our lives!

CIA
Wants Chalabi
No matter how they talk to Rice
It's Chalabi
But when I read up on this guy
He's not for we
Iraqis together..........

I can't see me voting for Chalabi's crew
They'll rob us blind!
Coalition forces are training our troops,
But it's a grind!

Cheney, too,
And Bush agree
No matter how they talk to Rice
It has to be
The only one to rule Iraq
Is Chalabi?
Iraqis know better.....

Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb,
Bomb-ba, ba-bomb, ba-bomb-bomb
Ba-bomb-bomb-bomb!

Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb,
Bomb-ba, ba-bomb, ba-bomb-bomb
Ba-bomb-bomb-bomb!

CIA
Wants Chalabi
No matter how they talk to Rice
It's Chalabi
But when I read up on this guy
He's not for we
Iraqis together..........
Iraqis know better.......
Iraq is no better.....

Ba-bomb-bomb-bomb,
Ba-bomb-bomb-bomb,
Ba-bomb-bomb-bomb,
Ba-bomb-bomb-bomb,
Ba-bomb-bomb-bomb..........
ęBob Gomez 2003
