The Lyrics

There was a dictator, he lived in Iraq, torture and murder to him were old habits.
Had his eye on Kuwait, then he though he'd just grab it,
And he lit up the oil wells when they drove him away.
As the moon rose oe'r Baghdad he sat in his palace, thinking about murder and gassing some Kurds.
And back in the White House 'ol Dubya was scheming, you tried to kill Pop so I'm gonna get you.

Now we still haven't tracked down Osama, but we caught ol' Saddam Hussein.
Uday and Kusay are burning in hell,
Isn't that just the way that we dreamed?
'Cause we caught ol' Saddam Hussein.

Now in March back in '03, the fuse it was lit.
He was linked to AlQuida and was evil besides that.
Just a matter of time before nukes were in Baghdad,
At least that what Powell and Cheyney said then.
Sent our children away on that dark desert highway,
A thousand dead soldiers, no "mission accomplished",
A quagmire in Persia, there's no way now to stop it.
Though you can believe it if it helps you to sleep.

Now the whole world of Islam hates us, but we caught ol' Saddam Hussein.
Uday and Kusay are burning in hell,
Isn't that just the way that we dreamed?
'Cause we caught ol' Saddam Hussein.
