The Lyrics

Disclaimer: Iīm not an American and have no special feelings either for or against President Bush. I just liked the idea of doing this parody. It contains no personal statements. But, as my name hints, itīs been inspired by a well used theme here. :-)
That Saddam he used to be a friend of mine
That Saddam he used to be a friend of mine
Maybe "why?" is the question thatīs on your mind
But that Saddam he used to be a friend of mine

That Saddam he used to be a friend of mine
That Saddam he used to be a friend of mine
Please donīt ask me īcause I wonīt tell why
But that Saddam he used to be a friend of mine

We used to be friends with the Iraqui
They used to be pals real close to me
But they tried to hide from us tech from France
Tried to fool us with a song and dance
It was insane and the picture was crazy
And the relevance here seems to be a bit hazy
Now I try to explain this in the simplest terms
We must let the cross burn and it is my turn to say
The oilfields are ours, the sanddunes are yours
and things are gonna stay that way, īcause
I am a nut and believe all of this
I figure dad will just hand me bliss
Now I have to worry about certain doom
Or will I be here tomorrow afternoon
Donīt ask me about the future!

That Saddam he used to be a friend of mine
That Saddam he used to be a friend of mine
Maybe "why?" is the question thatīs on your mind
But that Saddam he used to be a friend of mine

That Saddam he used to be a friend of mine
That Saddam he used to be a friend of mine
Please donīt ask me īcause I wonīt tell why
But that Saddam he used to be a friend of mine

I remember Saddam gave me a hand
Now I claim heīs a maniac man
Looking and searching for a shred of proof
Thinking any time this world could go poof
Now that might happen without me knowing
Thatīs why I find myself never tip-tip toeing
He tried to let Al Qaida sneak up on me
So I woke up, I told him "Yo step off me"
But he want us to coil
He want all his own oil
He hangs up all the calls like the bloody French does
Went to the UN with his commy connections
I need some proof. Got back to inspections
We need to stop his ABCīs
Me and Nato and UN. Please!?
They see different from what we see
(Tony believes! Heīll go!)

That Saddam he used to be a friend of mine
That Saddam he used to be a friend of mine
Maybe "why?" is the question thatīs on your mind
But that Saddam he used to be a friend of mine

That Saddam he used to be a friend of mine
That Saddam he used to be a friend of mine
Please donīt ask me īcause I wonīt tell why
But that Saddam he used to be a friend of mine

Iīm in touch with brutality
I keep it as close as I can to reality
I just donīt run with the way things flow
To where I just said "Yo, we gots to go"
īCos my heartīs now ill and mad at him
I cannot chose to laugh at him
I disregard everything he tells us
Believe in it and you are a damn wuss
What is real, a positive plane
Reality and life are not the same
As for UNīs demands for proofs thatīs real
It doesn't appeal to how I feel
Maybe I should try to bargain with them
(George, you're taking this trip to far)
OK, fine, nevermind
But that Saddam he used to be a friend of mine

That Saddam he used to be a friend of mine
That Saddam he used to be a friend of mine
Maybe "why?" is the question thatīs on your mind
But that Saddam he used to be a friend of mine

That Saddam he used to be a friend of mine
That Saddam he used to be a friend of mine
Please donīt ask me īcause I wonīt tell why
But that Saddam he used to be a friend of mine

Chase the truth away
Take your eyes off reality and let me move on
Chase the truth away
Take your eyes off reality and let me move on
Chase the truth away
Take your eyes off reality and let me move on
Chase the truth away
Take your eyes off reality and let me move on

Repeat and fade...
