The Lyrics

One for the troops.
We went in rockets a-blazin'
What an easy invasion
That Iraqi army melted all away
For any chemical scare
We were overprepared
And now we hear from that David Kay:

There never were any nukes
In old Mosul or Kirkuk
Or Fallujah, Nasiriya, Tikrit
Now this occupation sucks
We're sitting here like ducks
And getting ambushed in the Baghdad streets

Between Iraq and a hard place
Between Iraq and a hard place
Between Iraq and a hard place
Between Iraq and a hard place

That Colin Powell was great
Our Secretary of State
He made a speech that blew away the U.N.
Just like Tony Blair
Exaggerated a hair
And now we're gettin' it right in the end

Between Iraq and a hard place
Between Iraq and a hard place
Between Iraq and a hard place
Between Iraq and a hard place
Baby, baby, baby, this is suckin'!
Drivin' me crazy!
Man this is suckin'!
Drivin' me crazy!

We're trained for winning a battle
Not for rescuing cattle
Or repairing those electric lines
We're good at bombing and killing
Not at nation-building
Rumsey says "This thing may need more time..."

Well I was workin' real hard
With the National Guard
But now they've sent me 'bout a million miles away
From my sweet old home town
Because those neoclowns
They want to win their sweet election, yeah

Between Iraq and a hard place
Between Iraq and a hard place
Between Iraq and a hard place
Between Iraq and a hard place
Between Iraq and Iraq and Iraq and
Baby, baby, baby, 'tween Iraq and a hard place
Between Iraq and a hard place
Between Iraq and a hard place
Between Iraq and a hard place

I'm an Equal Opportunity Parody Voter - I'll give 5's to both Pro-Bush and Anti-Bush parodies as long as they're well-written and entertain me - and this one does both! Good job. 5's
