The Lyrics

At Ease, all you Bluegrass peaceniks and warmongers! A few Old Timey and Bluegrass songs prove that some wars is trumpt-up and unnecessary, others ain't. It's so easy (doggone easy) to get cornfused, as this song proves:
(IT'S ALL ABOUT) THAT DAMN SADDAM HUSSEIN
(tune: Just like THE BATTLESHIP OF MAINE, only a lot different)
by Too Rich Olson 3/14/03 - Sing it, or fling it, it's still a free country.

When George Bush* called our unit up
He said we'd have some fun.
'Cause over in the Middle East
There's lots of sand and sun.
It's all about that damn Saddam Hussein.

Chorus:
At war with that man Saddam Hussein,
When I get back to Maine, I'll need some Solarcain.
It's all about that damn Saddam Hussein.

Listenin' to the Bluegrass on Bangor radio,
I thought I heard the Dixie Chicks
Say that we should not go.
It's all about that damn Saddam Hussein.

We took it back from Cassius Clay,
We took it from Pete Rose.
We'll take it from the Dixie Chicks.
We give 'em all the hose.
It's all about that damn Saddam Hussein.

Chorus

Wea-pons of mass destructions,
Disclosure's incomplete.
We know Saddam has got them,
'Cause Cheney's got receipts.
It's all about that damn Saddam Hussein.

Them Frenchies and them Ruskies
All said we should not go.
So did my crazy Uncle Fud,
And half of Idaho.
It's all about that damn Saddam Hussein.

Chorus

Rummy said to get Saddam
To shoot him if we could.
I told him they had doubles
A lookin' just as good.
It's all about that damn Saddam Hussein.

Cheney said their oil wells -
To capture and secure.
But nerve gas makes me nervous,
So me, I'm not so sure.
It's all about that damn Saddam Hussein.

Chorus

When I get to I -Rack
I'll bow and take a knee
And thank the Lord our Leadership
Is safe home in DC.
It's all about that damn Saddam Hussein.

General Frank said fire at Will
I said I could not see.
Is he behind the human shield?
The old fool fired at me.
It's all about that damn Saddam Hussein.

Chorus

We seek him here, we seek him there,
We seek him everywhere.
Saddam elusive dictator
The French say, "C'est la guerre".
It's all about that damn Saddam Hussein.

When I chased Noriega
All over Panama
We only killed four thousand folks
To put him behind bars (aside: to write memoirs, smoke cigars and play guitars)
It's all about that damn Saddam Hussein.

Chorus

Anthrax attacks and maniacs
Are drivin' me insane.
Politics and Dixie Chicks,
Wish I had stayed in Maine.
It's all about that damn Saddam Hussein.

If I get back to Bangor, Maine
I'll get down on one knee,
And ask one of them Dixie Chicks
If she will marry me.
It's all about that damn Saddam Hussein.

At war with that man Saddam Hussein,
When I get back to Maine, I'll need some Solarcain.
It's all about that damn Saddam Hussein.

Spoken (shouted): 54'40" or Fight! **
Fast guitar chorus of Yankee Doodle - and out.

* the Asterisks President
** (Actually, I don't recall we fought on that one.)
