The Lyrics

Is this our crazy life?
This is not a fantasy
So many have died
This war is reality

Please don't you cry
Just open your eyes and see
I'm not a little boy
I need no sympathy

Because life is easy come, easy go,
Little high, little low
Anywhere the trail goes
The desert is so endless
And sandy

Just killed a man
Saw him in the distance up ahead
Pulled my trigger now he's dead
War has just begun
But I can't say if
I'll make it through another day
Mama, oohh,
(let the sand blow)
I don't want to make you cry
But I
Can't guarantee
I'm gonna be alive tomorrow
Carry on, Carry on
I don't want to make you sadder

It's so late
My feet are numb
On M.R.E.'s I dine
My body's aching all the time
Hey, everybody
I want you all to know
I'll try to fight this war
And come home to you

Mama, oohh,
(Let the sand blow)
I don't wanna die
Sometimes I wish I wasn't a marine at all

I see strange, sandy footprints of a man
It's Hussein! It's Hussein! Has he learned to dance the tango?
Combat missiles flying, Iraqi cities frying, please
Please surrender (Please surrender)
Please surrender (Please surrender)
Please surrender
Go, Go, Go
(Iraqi army):
NO, NO, NO...
(Saddam Hussein):
I'm not an evil man, my people love me
You are an evil man, no one could love thee
You're a scumbag causing monstrosities
Easy come, easy go, will you let me go?
(We will not) NO! We will not let you go
Let me go!
(We will not) We will not let you go
Let me go!
(We will not) We will not let you go
Let me go!
"We will not let you go!"
"Let me go!"
"We will not let you go!"
"Let me go!"
Ah, no, no, no, no, no, no, no!
(George W. Bush)
Oh mama mia mama mia!
Mama mia let me go!
Iraq has got to surrender right now
For peace, for peace, for peace...

So you think you can beat us
And swat us like flies?
(Jessica Lynch)
So you think you capture me and
Leave me to die?

Oh baby,
Can't do this to us baby
Gotta get out
Gotta get right out there

Don't want you getting sadder
We all will soon be free
But don't be getting sadder
Don't be getting sadder
Over me

Let the sand blow
