The Lyrics

saddam was a man who thought he was a ruler,
but he wasnt all that great
the chemicals he made and then he put in his weapons
made it so we couldnt wait

iraq! iraq!
iraq's the one we want to bomb
iraq! iraq!
iraq's the one we want to bomb

workin up a fever in a one horse town
and the horse looks really out of place
cause out here they use camels, and they're all run down
this one's butt looks like old saddam's face

iraq! iraq!
iraq's the one we want to bomb
iraq! iraq!
iraq's the one we want to bomb

crossin through kuwait, we're in a APC
with an m16 on lock and load
shoot if it moves, and bomb it if it stops
and watch the enemy explode

iraq! iraq!
iraq's the one we want to bomb
iraq! iraq!
iraq's the one we want to bomb

Actully, a funny thing is that "get back" was originaly named "The No-Pakistani song"...Im not kidding, it is about the Beatles hatred for the wave of Pakistani immigrants that were coming into England......This was in NEWSDAY a while back, when those tapes were found in Holland, so Im not making this up

I never knew that, but I do know that they performed it on 1969 on the roof top for 40 minutes until someone called the cops on them.

I see you took a bit of "Get Up And Go" by the Rutles, "working up a fever in a one horse town".

Geeeez, your ideas are sort silly or should I say stupid... Saddam is bad.... what about you buying stuff and food that deprives other people from being alive and having a healthy life. You must be thinking: We are nbuilding in Iraq, so all is well... sick ideas boy. btw I was not againts the war in Iraq, but the arguments of the Brits and the US have taken all respectability of the nations, their leaders and the people... like Al Qaeda: Akbah Allah and then cut of your head... or\round em up and shoot 'm

The Beatles song was supposed to be in-part a joke concerning Enoch Powell a politician who focused mainly on anti-immigration laws.
