The Lyrics

It's nice to see someone finally showed Sadam Hussein how we could stretch himself as a Warlord of Mass Destruction.

Neck bones wont stretch
When on a stretcher
Gallows not gurneys
Promise new hope
Tyrants get tense
When they're in traction
Malpractice can end
With a rope (1)


When you're hanged
Living is never the same
When you're hanged
Doctors will notice a change
When you're hanged
When you're hanged
When you're hanged

People are hits
When there's a Hitler
Hist'ry looks better
When they're past tense
Pundits so pompous
Don't go unpunished
They can Nazi this
"Till they're lynched

When you're hanged
Shortness of rope can be blamed
When you're hanged
You wont remember who came
When you're hanged
When you're hanged
When you're hanged

Too tight now!

When you're hanged
Breathing's no longer a strain
When you're hanged
S.O.B. stands for your name(2)
When you're hanged
When you're hanged
When you're hanged


(1) I bet Dr. Demento would have loved to pull Sadam's lynch pin.
(2) Every sombitch who's about to be hanged will suffers from shortness of breath.
