The Lyrics

Some of this is in present tense, but it just seems to flow better that way. Just consider it the 'literary present.'
Are you ready France?
Alright fellas, let's go!

Oh Hans was looking so hard
Trying then the ol' UN to please - aha
Oh he tramped across the desert
He followed all the leads of Iraqis

Oh - he searched under each rock
Hiked all over Iraq - checked ev'rywhere under the sun
Just a few o' these months more - thought we could avoid war
He thought Saddam's a reas'nable one

Oh yeah - Blix was so easy
Just be wanting to pleasy
Keeping ol' Saddam moving
We're all disapproving

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
But Bushy said "Stand back, we're gonna now attack"
Incompetent is poor Hans Blix
"He's never gonna find 'em" said "not the way they hide 'em"
Snookered now is poor Hans Blix
Poor Hans Blix, poor Hans Blix
Poor Hans Blix, poor Hans Blix

I'm looking hard for missiles
Finding nothing's all I ever do
Oh please call the UN over
I need more time - they've moved 'em to Peru - aha

And Saddam in Iraq
Is movin' a stack of his missiles and scuds on the sly
And ol' France is a yawnin' - thinks ev'ryone's fawnin'
They'll betray ya with a wink of their eye

Oh yeah Blix was pathetic
Saddam ecstatic
And Blix begs for his job back
Thinks he did great in Iraq

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Toppled Saddam in Iraq with a couple week's attack
And we have no need for poor Hans Blix
And the boys in coalition said "This is 'weapon fishin'"
"We don't need no poor Hans Blix"
Poor Hans Blix, poor Hans Blix
Poor Hans Blix, poor Hans Blix

Oh yeah - it's been some good work
Coming out of the woodwork
WMD's emerging
Gonna give 'em a purging

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
And Saddam in Iraq came under big attack
And this in spite of poor Hans Blix
And he mourned in the corner said "That Saddam's a thorn yeah
I wish I wasn't born Hans Blix"
Poor Hans Blix, poor Hans Blix
Poor Hans Blix, poor Hans Blix

It hit ol' poor Hans Blix
We quit on poor Hans Blix
Gave flick to poor Hans Blix
Yeah - it's a poor Hans Blix

In his defense, Hans Blix is a weapons inspector, not a relic hunter :-P
