The Lyrics

It might not be too much different from the original, but I think it needs to be said. This conflict has the potential to be the first fought on US soil. We don't have to worry about being invaded. Since the 9/11 hijackers lived in this country for a while before the attack, we MUST assume that others are already here. To think anything else would be foolish. Don't get me wrong- let's defend our country. But let's ALSO take a look at the consequences of this war before we go charging in...
In the Middle East and America, there's a growing feeling of hysteria
Conditioned to respond to all the signs
Of the UN inspectors and what they find
Mr. Hussein said we will bury you
I don't subscribe to this point of view
It would be such an ignorant thing to do
If the Iraqis love their children too

What makes us think that we can hide
From those who bomb by suicide?
There is no monopoly in common sense
On either side of the political fence
We share the same biology
Regardless of our theology
Believe me when I say to you
I hope Iraqis love their children too

We know the historical precedent
That put the words in the mouth of the President
Since 'Desert Storm' was a winnable war
We don't need to fear Iraq anymore
Mr. Bush, he says we will protect you
I don't subscribe to this point of view
Believe me when I say to you
I hope Iraqis love their children too

We share the same biology
Regardless of our theology
What might save us, me, and you
Is that Iraqis love their children too

Good! I love the original but you did a great job modernizing it!

Like you said, it had to be siad and I'm glad it has been said. I liked the original, and it seems that new times had brought new dangers into light

Well, Syncronos... I've already put in an entry that updates this song a bit further (which will show up on the site tomorrow), but I have to admit that I didn't even know you did this song until after I submitted mine.... doh.... Anyway, this is good.
