Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

As sung by Michael Moore, joined by a choir of Iraqi orphans and liberals...counterpoint provided by Dubya and Co....Yes, Saddam Hussain was (is) an evil tyrant..but why did we really go to war? WMDs? 9/11? War on Terror?...only those in power really know....
Twas a half-cocked fight, Big G
Found no WMDs

'Spectors told you
You were wrong
Still the "willing"
Ploughed right on!
What a half-cocked fight...
We're confused and angry, so
To a half-cocked war we'll go!

So the soldiers..won the war
Now we're asking..."What's the score?"
What a half-cocked fight...

Moslem extremists are always howlin'
WMD's gave us a fright
Dubya told us not to throw the towel in
Doesn't really matter if it's right!

We've got to rid the world of Saddam's visage
He has been in power for far too long
Why is everyone not getting the message?
From all the protests you would think we were wrong!
(Dubya,Dick and Rummy)
9/11 fight!
Backed by heaven fight!
Desert killin' fight!
We're "The Willin'" fight!

In the brittle mind of Shrub
Saddam was Beelzebub
But the s**t, it had to stick
Better find some weapons quick!

We will fight 'til Saddam's gone
Like the tow'rs of the World Trade Center

But the desert, it was bare
Had a word with Tony Blair
Suddenly, a dossier
Death is 45 away!

...whistle...Baghdad road!
...whistle...I said get Hussain!

(MM,Liberals and Orphans)
And the lying formed a stench
Taking pot-shots at the French
Made the Aussies toe the line
We'll be home for dinner time!
What a half-cocked fight...
What a half-cocked fight...
What a half-cocked fight!

i think the most of the people who don't want to go to war are liberals

Or maybe they just don't want any more people to die needlessly, M-Dawg. Anyway, Kristof, great job. My favorite line was "Backed by heaven fight!" You hit it right on the head there...

Good job.... and yeah, M-Dawg, liberals tend to be quicker about perceiving these kind of things. Although the thought of someone named M-Dawg as being conservative is kind of funny, don't ya think?

I only know the chorus courtesy of the famous rapper Dr Evil in AP3. Enjoyed your rhyming.

DRTOS ( no vote ) but this is atleast humorous on a morbid level ( though I wouldn't give it a 5 for funny ).
