The Lyrics

This one dates back to the Afghan war. . ."Jihad Johnny," John Walker Lindh, a Marin moron caught fighting with the Taliban.
Lawyers, Gum, and Mommy

I went out feeling weightless.
That's what fasting will do.
How was I to know
They'd make me start rushin' you?

I was rambling in Khandahar;
I took a little risk.
Send lawyers, gum, and mommy,
Dad, get me out of this.

I'm an innocent bystander,
But somehow I got stuck
Between Iraq and a hard-to-pronounce place.
Oh, I was a dumb shmuck.
Yes, I was a dumb shmuck.

Now I'm pleading my ignorance.
I'm a messed-up young man.
Send lawyers, gum, and mommy,
I think shit my pants.
