The Lyrics

I hear those soldiers comin'; they're gonna make me sin,
By stripping me down butt-naked in a pile of hairy men.
I'm stuck in Abu Ghraib Prison, with a dog leash on.
And this torment keeps a comin', all day and all nightlong.

When I was an Iraqi troop, Saddam told me, "Son,
if you see the coalition, you'd better shoot your gun."
But the US Army was so good; I thought for sure I'd die.
So, I surrendered to this prison, where they make me cry.

I bet those MP's are a laughin, but they really went too far,
they took a bunch of pictures, now my butt's a TV star.
I'm wearing underwear on my head and I just can't see,
and those dogs keep a bitin', while people torture me.

Well, if they free me from this prison, if all Iraq were mine.
I'd outlaw every picture that was taken of my behind.
And tear down Abu Ghraib prison; not one brick would stay.
As for the guys who took those pictures, well they must be gay. -"It's reverse psycology"

Judging from this and other parodies of yours, your spirit seems to be willing, but your pacing is weak. Keep trying, you might get it right. Just remember who got us in this mess: The most parodable "President" in U.S. history.

Judging from other parodies of his and that, his pacing seems to be strong, but his spirit is weak. Stop trying, he may not get it wrong. Forget only who got us out of this order: the truth-is-stranger-than-fiction "Party Leader" out of Democrat fantasy.

I wrote this parody because I think the situation is funny, not because I blame any leader (to include the President) for the Abu Graib scandle. I have served on active duty and in the National Guard as a MP. I blame the soldiers involved for what happened. I don't not support the war nether do I condem the war. The average citizen must understand that some of the information about the prison scandle "might" be top secret and not discussed in public or in court. This could explain some of the confusion right now. The right people took the fall and I trust our Army leadership to make that decision. Ten yrs. from now more info will be known through the public information act and then it will be clear to the average citizen who is to blame.

If you are refering to my "pace" as how fast I submit a parody, I have written 100's of portions of parodys I just havn't found time to finish and /or submit them.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
