The Lyrics

Open, your eyes, don't trust, these lies, what are we doin' this for?
Isn't for the people
Nor is it for defence
It's a sham, a scam, an evil plan
For the benefit of Texan gents
We don't want the voting checked
And the Enron wound's still sore
The economy is wrecked
What d'you expect, I'll just start a war
For oil, we're just doing it for the oil

No it isn't for the UN, it isnt for the buzz
It's dad's dream, to cream, Saddam's regime
We want everyone to service us
Because we think that we have the right
To land our troops on a foreign shore
And we'll make sure Saddam takes the blame
A game, what are we doing this for

The oil, we're just doing it for the oil
The oil, we're just doing it for the oil
