Saddam Shame

Lingua: Inglese



Thank God we finally had us a war
It's what we've been spending our tax dollars for
The rivers of gore we can wave the flag o'er
Sparking a stock market rally
Soaring as high as the casualty tally

Our statement of purpose was to liberate
That lovable serfdom we know as Kuwait
But if we should eliminate one head of state
Iraq doesn't need a dictator
Just an American administrator

Saddam shame, Saddam shame
We all had to learn your damn name
Only three questions remain
Who's sane? Who's sane? Who's sane?

We were fighting for freedom, that much is for sure
Freedom from running our cars on manure
And tell me what could be red, white and bluer
Than bombing a strange foreign nation
So we can all take our summer vacation

The Butcher of Baghdad was your nom de guerre
A nickname you'll have to be willing to share
When we open up our own butcher shop there
You bombed and gassed your own people
But they followed you to our slaughterhouse just like sheep'll

Saddam shame, Saddam shame
We all had to learn your damn name
Only three questions remain
Who's sane? Who's sane? Who's sane?

Our president worked for the Central Intel...
ligence Agency and before that for Shell
We know if he's lying he's doing it well
Yes, he studied popular phonics
And he's learned the lessons of history...onics

Yes, we're the world champions of democracy
So we'll keep sending our military
'Til every nation is sovereign and free
All the while intoning our mantra
Nam myoho renge and aid to the contra

Now I could have told you that right would prevail
So three cheers, hurrah, bravo, right-on, hail, hail!
To President Bush and Vice President ... uh...
And the brave men and women in khaki
And our best to every remaining Iraqi

Saddam shame, Saddam shame
We all had to learn your damn name
Only three questions remain
Who's sane? Who's sane? Who's sane?
Yes, only three questions remain
Who's sane? Who's sane? Who knows?
