The Lyrics

There is unrest in the U.N.
There is trouble with Iraq
For the U.S. want to bomb them
But they're vetoed by Chirac

The trouble with the U.S.
(And they're quite convinced they're right)
They say Iraq is just too evil
And they want to bomb and fight
But the French won't help their killing
Cos Iraq still owes them cash
And they want some more inspections
They think bombing would be rash

There is trouble in the U.N.
But Chirac will not back down
The Iraqis scream 'Oppression'
And the Germans sit and frown

So the U.S. snub the U.N.
And they bomb without the right
The oil just makes them greedy
And they show their vicious might
Now there's no more U.N. meetings
No more international law
All the nations are kept muted
By US Marine corps

Phil Alexander - March 07, 2003 - Report this comment
Very well expressed - I don't know the original, but the meter of the lyric is spot on: you can read it as verse and there's no stretching to get it to scan. Obviously, you know I agree on the sentiments, as well - I think I cover a lot of the same ground in my Tragedy parody.
