The Lyrics

First, thanks to Steve Kalafut, whose fine parody of "Alley Oop," "Aleut" (9/25), gave me the idea for this. Second if you don't buy the idea that interim Iraqi prime minister Ilyad Allawi—a man with a checkered past, to say the least, who recently addressed Congress to tell them how well things are going in Iraq—is essentially a U.S. puppet, then you most likely won't buy this parody.
There's a man who's a paper leader, we now know
(Allawi-wi-wi-wi-wi-wi).
They brought him for a dog-and-pony show
(Allawi-wi-wi-wi-wi-wi).
He went up to Congress and gave a speech.
(Allawi-wi-wi-wi-wi-wi).
This fat man's name is Allawi
(Allawi-wi-wi-wi-wi-wi).

He was blowin' smoke up their asses about the war
(Allawi-wi-wi-wi-wi-wi).
He's a knuckleheaded rubber stamp; he's Dubya's whore
(Allawi-wi-wi-wi-wi-wi).

He's a big ugly chub, and he ain't got much hair
(Allawi-wi-wi-wi-wi-wi).
And he's baldly lyin' 'bout things over there.
(Allawi-wi-wi-wi-wi-wi).

(Allawi).
He's a suck-up man; he's talkin' jive
(Allawi).
The truth, he's been told to hide
(Allawi).
Not a thing 'bout this bungled drive.
This man's a craven 'ho'.

He lies 'bout the bungled job, wearin' Armani
(Allawi-wi-wi-wi-wi-wi).
He seeks aid from the Euros, Rome and Paris, e.g.
("Allawi, non, non, non, non!")

He's fat and thuggish. . .charade abettor
(Allawi-wi-wi-wi-wi-wi).
But he can keen rote excuses while his pants get wetter.
(Allawi-wi-wi-wi-wi-wi).

(Allawi).
He's a suck-up man; he's talkin' jive
(Allawi).
The truth, he's been told to hide
(Allawi).
Not a thing 'bout this bungled drive.
This man's a craven 'ho'.

There he goes—watch that craven man go.
He moved his lips, didn't he?
Lies when flappin' 'em.
Weighs too much.
Diet, fatty, diet.
Does the dinar soar?
Slides badly, slides.
Like, 'lypseville.
