The Lyrics

Aggie's taking a risk here, folks...
It was 2003 when old Saddam ran away
He wouldn't stop whining 'cause he knew he had lost that day
It was 10:35 in the breezy desert night
We were sitting in Qatar
Hmmm...he was looking afright, yeah
I asked he wanted a smoke
And he said all he wanted was his Koran
And wanted to know if I thought I was sanctified, yeah
And I said, Saddam, what's on your mind?
Tell me what's on your mind?

"I might get exiled to a peasant shack
But Iran will just take the place of Iraq"

It made me so laugh when he told me
With tears in his eyes (tears in his eyes)
He said that he'd been had and he wanted to die
He'd lost his elite army and his mansion and his pay
He wouldn't stop cryin'
'Cause he said he was led astray
He asked me if we could be friends
And I said, Oh, Saddam, baby, that's a dead end
You know and I know that that couldn't be ratified
Then I said, Saddam, don't waste your time
You know your faith is blind
I wouldn't be compromised with a one night stand

And Iran couldn't take the place of Iraq
Yeah, yeah, the place in Iraq

DKTOS, but creative, and enough truth to be scary... 555.

(ABC4-I) Great pacing to a Prince song that, up until a few minutes ago, I had never heard. "But Iran will just take the place of Iraq"; powerful lyrics. The idea of a one night stand with Saddam....well, we'll never know now that he is dead. Funny and original idea, Aggy. 5s.

(ABC4-I) He was a ways from Qatar when they nabbed his butt. Still Qatar fit into the parody like a glove and not OJ's or MJ's glove I'm wordin' at. I met one of the soldiers that nabbed this guy. He didn't look like no Tone Loc's Oscar Meyer Weiner type. But you never know since slick Willy said "Don't ask, don't tell". Boy how I wish the rest of the people would follow that lead. That was about the only really sound thing that Slick Willy ever said. Well done. This one is a contender.

ABC4-I- Pacing was great. It's hard to like anything that mentions Iraq, Iran and Saddam all at once...but I liked this

(ABC4-I) Completely lost on me, both the song and the content (I know sod all about politics, doesn't matter which country). Oh well.

(ABC4-I)-Pacing was very good. Not really sure I'd want to hear what goes through Saddam's mind. Very scary thought!

(ABC4) wow, Saddam was so lonely he asked you to be his friend? - I'm kinda softening towards the guy - the "Saddam" was a perfect sub in that OS line, which is where this ingenious idea must have come from Ag - great creativity - 555

(ABC4) Wow, Um. . .Wow. . .That was highly unusual. . .of course Agrimorfee, that's one of things I love about your work. . .

You're making Saddam sound so innocent... Like I'm actually starting to feel sorry for that mustached nutjob..... Good thing I'm not Liberal or I might get pissed off.

(ABC) Uh...don't quit your day job, Ag. ;) But seriously, politics are a hard subject to handle, and you did this with aplomb.

(And you're a conservative, Matthias? Eeeeeek!)
