The Lyrics

My contribution to the "We got 'em" brigade. According to the search page, this is the first ever Amiright parody of any song by Humble Pie, whose namesake Saddam now gets to eat.
Found Saddam in the hole
Found Saddam in the hole
Found Saddam in the hole

All right all right all right all right

Waged war on Iran,
But those days are gone.
He gassed the Kurds like captive herds,
Killed them hither and yon.

He then took Kuwait,
And he thought he was great.
Schwarzkopf came and ruined his game,
Left his troops to their fate.

Found Saddam in the hole
Found Saddam in the hole
Found Saddam in the hole
Found Saddam in the hole

He then held onto power.
Lived in his palace tower.
His people starved while he lived large.
Critics could only cower.

Al Qaeda came to Iraq,
Got to use Salman Pak.
There they trained to hijack planes,
But the US fought back.

Found Saddam in the hole
Found Saddam in the hole
Found Saddam in the hole
Found Saddam in the hole

(instrumental)
Wa-oo, wa-oo.....

[spoken]
How you doin', Saddam?
Now climb up out of there.
We're gonna shave that beard,
And wash that hair.

[back to being sung]
Well then we had enough
Of Saddam talking tough.
Invasion team then changed regime
When the going got rough.

Well Saddam went to hide.
He hung on to his pride.
Insurgents then attacked our men.
It was great when our side

Found Saddam in the hole
Found Saddam in the hole
Found Saddam in the hole
Found Saddam in the hole
(repeat and fade)

Ya beat me to this one, man. I had the title in my head this afternoon at work, and was gonna work on writing it tonight. Oh well. I saw that this song hasn't ever been done before either. I had a hard time believing that. The original is a great tune.

Karlando, I was amazed how quickly some of us used Saddam's capture in their parodies, so I was lucky to get this one before you or anyone else. I certainly agree with you about the original.
