If you cannot find Osama, bomb Iraq
If you “Dali Who?” the Dali Lama, bomb Iraq
Since the terrorists are Saudi
And the bank took back your Audi
And Afghanistan’s been naughty,
Bomb Iraq!

If we have no allies with us, bomb Iraq
Think someone has dissed us? bomb Iraq
So to hell with the inspections
Let’s look tough for the elections,
Close your mind and take directions,
Bomb Iraq!

It’s “pre-emptive non-aggression,”
bomb Iraq
We’ve got satellite confessions! bomb Iraq
They have weapons we can’t see,
They bought them all from ME!
So if they’re not there, they MUST be,
Bomb Iraq!

For Bechtel and Halliburton, bomb Iraq
If for Cheney jail looks certain, bomb Iraq
If you spot the group Carlyle
And it makes you go “sig heil”
To distract your war crimes trial
Bomb Iraq!

Fall in line and follow orders, bomb Iraq
War for oil knows no borders, bomb Iraq
Disagree? We’ll call it treason
Let’s make war not love this season
Even if we have no reason
Bomb Iraq!

If you never were elected, bomb Iraq
And you’re simply not respected, bomb Iraq
If you think that SUVs
Are the best thing since sliced cheese
And their oil’s ours to seize,
Bomb Iraq!

If you cannot find “Osama,” bomb Iraq
If a turban freaks your mama, bomb Iraq
Drag the immigrants to jail
Lock the cells and set no bail
Their oil’s ours to steal,
Bomb Iraq!

If your grandad helped the Nazis, bomb Iraq
If he bankrolled Hitler’s plots, Jeez, bomb Iraq
If he fundraised for da Führer
Maybe you’ll slip it past dear Laura
But that swastik on your door … uh…
Bomb Iraq!
