The Lyrics

Suicide Cars on a mission,
Spilling more blood in Iraq
Killing Them Awf'lly with their bombs,
Killing Them Awf'lly on the street,
Shocking the whole world with their deeds,
Killing Them Awf'lly in Iraq

Are we enforcing freedom,
As body bags are filled?
How do we define freedom,
Be free, or else be killed?
Day after day, unending,
How many more must die?

Suicide cars on a mission,
Spilling more blood in Iraq
Killing Them Awf'lly with their bombs,
Killing Them Awf'lly on the street,
Shocking the whole world with their deeds
Killing Them Awf'lly in Iraq

Now the big push for Falluja,
So many stand in the way
How many troops and civilians
Won't see another day?
Time after time, it happens,
When will the killing end?

Suicide cars on a mission,
Spilling more blood in Iraq
Killing Them Awf'lly with their bombs,
Killing Them Awf'lly on the street,
Shocking the whole world with their deeds
Killing Them Awf'lly in Iraq
Killing Them Awf'lly......

Good job, AFW. Not funny, but since you'll probably get slammed on that voting category later, I'll spot you a 5 for a buffer there.

"Killing Me Softly" is by Roberta Flack.

If you say Aretha also performed this song, I believe you...but when did she do it?
