The Lyrics

in the desert, the battle was allright
shootin camels, we marched on every night
but this was different,
it didn't feel so right, like iraq

bravo zero, rendezvous at one,
kill alqueda, saddam and every one,
there just was no place
that you could have such fun like Iraq

my ammo ready, my food in plastic bags,
a mortar gunner, with several dozen frags
shoot at will men, if their head's in rags,
like iraq

Like iraq, where'd you think I'd rather be,
than iraq?
thanks, just one tour's fine for me
in Iraq,
Kill saddam, and transfer me,
from Iraq

and I shoot very straight
all my kills now total eight
of all the terroristic schemes
I stand proud, I stand tall
high above it all,
we still believe in dreams

twenty camels? where's they go?
twenty burkas, so no one would know
I sta and wonder sometimes..
why they're gone?

and sometimes late at night
when I'm in a new firefight
and I hope I'm doin right
and I recall
I recall

Like iraq, where'd you think I'd rather be,
than iraq?
thanks, just one tour's fine for me
in Iraq,
Kill saddam, and transfer me,
from Iraq


in Iraq, gotta get me outta here
In Iraq, even camels seem so queer
In Iraq, you gotta drink the saidi beer
In Iraq
