The Lyrics

Standing in that ol' mess hall
Waitin' for that final call
Says it's time to even up the score
Cool reserve, he packs a bag
Time to go, he cannot lag
Slowly he starts walkin' through the door

The bus arrives, it blows his horn
He stumbles out in the early morn'
And thinks about the place he's got to go
Hit a hundred signal lights
Gonna be a hectic fight
Gettin' to Iraq has been so slow

Saddam International Airport
Where the coalition roars
Saddam International Airport
We don't see him any more

U.N. resolution's lost
Lots of people weigh the cost
Pope is callin' all the way from Rome
While he wonders where it's at
He sees a Paris diplomat
Tryin' to keep the Army folks at home

Time, it goes so quickly by
Sees his wife, tries not to cry
Finds a minute just to be alone
And while he's tryin' to get some rest
He knows that he can pass the test
To fight the enemy so far from home

Saddam International Airport
Where the coalition roars
Saddam International Airport
We don't see him any more

With silver wings across the sky
Vapor trails that wave goodbye
To those below who've got to stay at home
He wishes he didn't have to fight
So he could hug his kids at night
Rid himself of every tear he owns

USA, it seems so pretty
Riding in a C-one-thirty
Fighting back the tears that curse his eyes
Pilot's voice so loud and clear
Amplifies into his ear
Assuring him it's almost time to rise

Saddam International Airport
Where the coalition roars
Saddam International Airport
We won't see him any more

Good job Bubba. I had the idea for this earlier today, couldn't find the lyrics on the net, and had laboriously typed them out longhand ! Now, having seen your version, I know I couldn't have come near it ! I only had the chorus so far !
