The Lyrics

As sung by Oil-Slick Dick.
I Believe In Crude

Now that we find ourselves ruling Iraq
Is rife
Finding that what we once thought would be easy
Is damn hard
That's life

Now that we've taken their country
Do you thing Iraq changes in a day?
Kurds and Turkmenis are plundering
Are they trying to screw the U.S.A.?

But I believe in crude
Oh, oh,
Oh, oh,
Oh, oh I believe in crude....

On CNN at night
I take no questions
I feel
No doubt
Maybe Jay Garner in a year or two
Leaves Baghdad
And lets the oil out

Now their economy's crumbling
Who could possibly blame the U.S.A.?
Rumsfeld is ranting and grumbling
I might possibly drool when I say

That I believe in crude
Oh, oh,
Oh, oh,
Oh, oh I believe in crude......

Iraq contains about a fourth of the world's
It's true
Why should I let some dictator control it
And sell it off
For food

Now that I've made myself wealthy
Do you think I can change? That would be gay!
Bombing's effective when Stealth-y
S.U.V. drivers, join me when I say

That I believe in crude
Oh, oh,
Oh, oh,
Oh, oh I believe in crude.....
ęBob Gomez 2003

Well done, and the sentiment still rings true months later. It semed obvious to me that Iraq would be a mess for a long time. Did Bush actually believe the rhetoric he fed us up until the war?

I think we'll never know. Bush will be too busy playing golf and appearing on Jay Leno after November to write his own memoirs. Peace. d;:^)
