The Lyrics

you get a shiver as you wait,
but I think that it is great, and meantime,
over in Jordan is where you hid everything
the hundred first is comin, double four time,
they feel allright when they see the light of day

ah well, they just outside, but they cant show too many faces
comin in when they train, to hear the bombs come down
there's demolition, of other places
ah but the bombs, they makin that sound

check out sniper george,
he's on his second new war
mind you he's strictly snipin,
he doesnt want to hear them cry or sing
he listens to rap, when he's hidden, he not bored,
then he gets out of sight to do his thing
and harry doesnt mind, if he doesnt make the scene,
he's in the national guard, he's doin all right
he can toss grenades and smoke like anything,
savin it up, for fire fights
all for saddam
all for saddam hussein

there's the republican guard, they hidin their face in the corner
drunk and dressed in their best desert clothes, all shiver with fright
they don't give a damn about their leader old saddam
they doin what they call drop and roll

all for saddam
all for saddam, is he real?

and then saddam steps right up to the microphone
he says again it's the mother of all things
goodnight, hello george please stay awhile
and he slips away, in new exile
he is the saddam
he is the saddam hussein
