The Lyrics

To Iraq
A Western invasion came
To topple a maniac psychopath
To wit: Saddam Hussein

One small fight
He knew he could not remain
And off he ran to where? Iran?
And was never seen again...

oooooooooooooooooo...
Saddam the psychopath docked his tank
And said goodbye to his burkhas
Off he went with a thumpety thump
Thump thump thump

Saddam the psychopath docked his tank
Deserted off to the desert
Off he went with a thumpety thump
Thump thump thump

Night by night came sniper attacks instead
And nobody knew if Saddam's old crew
Might be alive or dead

Loads more tricks has Saddam up his sleeve
Was taught that way by the CIA
Ironic, I believe

oooooooooooooooooo...
Saddam the psychopath docked his tank
And said goodbye to his burkhas
Off he went with a bangety bang
Bang bang bang

Saddam the psychopath docked his tank
Deserted off to the desert
Off he went with a bangety bang
Bang bang bang

The OBL horde came calling, extremist men
They left a bomb to kill some Imam
And one more at the UN

oooooooooooooooooo...
Saddam the psychopath docked his tank
And said goodbye to his burkhas
Off he went with a thumpety thump
Thump thump thump

Saddam the psychopath docked his tank
Deserted off to the desert
Off he went with a thumpety thump
Thump thump thump

I wonder how many people know this original. I particularly liked your substitution for "goodbye to the circus."

Wow! Thought I'd heard the last of this song. Great job!

Thanks for the kind words... Spaff: in some respects I didn't want to leave that line in (IMO Saddam was only playing lip-service to Islam, and probably wouldn't have given two hoots whether women wore burkhas), but once thought of, it just had to stay, I guess.

555 Barrels of oil on Saddam, 555 barrels of oil. If one of those barrels should hap to go torch... 555 millions applauds for Saddam.
