The Lyrics

As sung by Dubya Bush to Saddam Hussein:
(long instrumental intro)

Where you gonna go?
Where are you gonna hide?
Too late to leave when the bombing starts.
In a bunker's where you're staying deep inside.

You will feel the bombs' heat.
And it won't be long.
You will have to worry,
We'll attack before too long.
You'll know what it means when my war starts.
Saddam, you must go...

Oil keeps us running.
Yeah, oil keeps us running.
Oil keeps us running.
Yeah, oil keeps us running.
Oil keeps us running.
Yeah, oil keeps us running.
Oil keeps us running.
Yeah, oil keeps us running.

Your land, we will steal.
You know I don't care.
Steal oil you've been keeping for yourself.
Well, you know that life just ain't fair.

You had better worry
We're gonna take your life.
My bombs will drop in a flurry.
For only I have such might.
You'll know what it means when my war starts.
Saddam, you must go...

Oil keeps us running.
Yeah, oil keeps us running.
Oil keeps us running.
Yeah, oil keeps us running.
Oil keeps us running.
Yeah, oil keeps us running.
Oil keeps us running.
Yeah, oil keeps us running.

(repeat chorus and fade)
