The Lyrics

I sure hope this war is ending soon.
**George W. Bush**
We walked into your country 'cause you are that guy from Iraq
Your statue, we all could see, fell below! You died?
We're at war, have you forgot?
You had one eye with a tear as you watched yourself, you slob
The Regime dreamed that they'd be your partner, they'd be your partner, and

You're Hussein, you probably think this war is about you
You're Hussein
You probably think this war is about you, don't you, don't you?

Well, you had us several years ago when I was still real naive
When you said that my dad sucked, was Desert Storm
Now it is 2003
But you passed away the things you loved, back in 1990
I had some dreams there were bombs in my coffee, bombs in my coffee, and

You're Hussein, you probably think this war is about you
You're Hussein
You probably think this war is about you, don't you, don't you?

Not long now, we went up to Baghdad, yeah
And U.S., naturally, won
Then we flew our lear jet up to a restaurant to see if we you and your one son
Hope you're where you should be all the time
And if you're not, you're with some underworld guy or Osama bin Laden, 'Sama bin Laden, and

You're Hussein, you probably think this war is about you
You're Hussein
You probably think this war is about you, don't you, don't you?

That War with Iraq really sucked! This parody is a classic from the peak of that mediocre war. Straight 5's, soul brotha!
