The Lyrics

"Elite Troops are no more than 24 hours behind Saddam Hussein". We have been hearing that for a while now. Considering the fact that the world has no more than 24 time zones, and that they each span no more than 1 hour, I guess what they are really saying is that he can be ANYWHERE on the planet. (Though, with my usual timing, he will probably be caught during the hours between submission and public display of this parody :-)
Well, they hit Al-Bunghole just the other night
Scared some camels shitless, but it wasnīt right
He was not asleep there, they were out of blame
But when we saw the newsflash it was all the same

"Weīre close to Saddam, right now heīs running like a stray!"
We get to hear that story; "24 hours away!"

Looks like the hunt is going, to be white as coal
That the news are spinning, out of all control
And Saddam on tape says; "Better catch this wink"
"Heathens gonna lose, itīs late, and Bush you stink!"

Believe me people, we better bend our knees and pray
He lives and breathes in safety, 24 hours a day

24 hours away

And when a missileīs blowing, heīll be somewhere else
And there will be nothing, left that Fox canīt sell

24 hours away
24 hours away

(Violins and Violence and Harmonica break)

Believe me people, we are the ones that gonna pay
Heīs making bombs and cous-cous, 24 hours a day

24 hours away

And when a missileīs blowing, heīll be somewhere new
And there will be nothing, left that Fox canīt brew

24 hours away
24 hours away
24 hours away
24 hours away
Đ Peter Andersson
