The Lyrics

The president went to baghdad
He was looking for the oil to steal
He was in a bind
Polls put him way behind
And was unwillin' to make a deal
When he came across the UN makin' no decisions,
doing a dance
The president jumped up on the podium and said,
I'll never bow to France

He said "I bet you didn't know it
but with fourteen forty one"
We have ourselves a binding
UN war resolution
He mangled words quite badly
But give the Prez' his due
He bet the white house soil on Saddams oil
and he bet our nation too

Tehran said, "My name's Islam
And we call this a sin
But here's our bet, you will regret
The day that you went in!"

Dubya go wake Cheney! And ride al-Sadr hard!
'Cause hell's broke loose in Baghdad
And the Shia deals the cards
And if you win the Muslim world
will fall in one big mob
But if you lose then Kerry gets your Job!

The Prez' opened up his arsenal and he said,
"I'll start this fight."
And shock and awe went sparkling
and it lit the Baghdad night
Saddam pulled out and Baghdad Bob
made one last evil hiss
Said "No GI's are near us"
But the backdrop went like this


When the Shock and awe was finished
and Saddam was on the run
The Prez got on a warship
And announced "the job is done!"

And then....
Fire from the city, run boys run
Trrsts in the house with a big ol' gun
Bombs goin off we're pickin' out skin
Open the Humvee let me in!

(this next part is in the future)

The Prez' he bowed his head
Because he knew that he'd been beat,
And memories of Saigon came
as we started our retreat
We may have got no oil
but lets just let it go
We got Carrots and tomatoes
Anything that they could throw!

They said
Fire from the city, run boys run
Trrsts in the house with a machine gun
Bombs goin off we're pickin' out skin
Open the Humvee let me in!

Wonderful - too many innocent deaths at the hand of this administration. Vote the bum out of office.

Good parody Laurence. Don't know about that future part. I guess we'll wait and see. I commend you on a well executed parody on a very hard song to do. 5s.

Very good, Laurence.

Very good, but I'm confused: How does Our Fearless Appointed Wartime Leader With a Purpose have any "memories of Saigon"? Maybe he went to see "Miss Saigon." But he wasn't there. He had better things to do, like protecting Texas from those dang Okie Commies, and inspecting tequila bottle bottoms for worms.

The Palestinians got thown out of Jordan, they looking for some land to steal. They were in a bind ‘the peace was way behind” and the Syrians were makin it real. They came across a hisbolla interested in rockets and very smart. A Palestinian jumped up on an freshly chopped olive stump and said “boy, let me tell you what” I bet you didn’t know it, but I’m a rocket builder too, Now you have a good-looking rocket dude, but give a terrorist his due, I bet 72 virgins against your soul, I can kill more jews than you. The hisbolla, said my name is Achmed, , and its not in the Koran, but, I’ll set this rocket, hide behind these Kids and I’ll strike the pin.. “ pali, gather up your gear, and kick your third wife hard, ‘cos hell’s broke loose in gaza and the jews are supercharged, And if you win, you’ll get all those virgins dressed in gold… But Either way you never had a soul!” The Pali opened up his case and he said: "I'll start this out the gate." And camel dung flew from fingertips as his wives set up a mortar plate. He dropped three rounds and they made an evil hiss There was radar-guided counter fire and sounded something like this. “Insert Explosions and pitiful screaming …wave file” When the counterfire finished, Achmed said: "Well you're pretty good ol' son. Those wer’nt rockets, but mortars are lots of fun… Put your wives and legs, In that ice chest, over there… I’ll show you how its done Rockets fly further: run, jews run… Reverse triangulation won’t work, run, jews run. Jews in the temple, arms blown off, Mom? Will they grow back? no child no. The palestinian bowed his head because he knew that he'd been beat. He laid a “Hooters 2 for 1 coupon ” on the ground at Achmed’s feet Achmed said: "You dirtbag refugee, hobble away on your stumps real quick…” “cause I’m gonna double check the Koran, ‘fore I chop your dick" He launched three more rockets… “run jews run” The Hizbolla are the rising guns…. Minerva tanks coming up the road, Hizbolla with nowhere to go…
