The Lyrics

Asked me how I knew
Saddam's reign was through

I, of course, replied,
"With our troops inside
"Saddam cannot hide"

Said, "Someday, you'll find
"You are in a bind"

"When Iraq's on fire
"You must re - a - lize
"Smoke gets in your eyes"

So, I dissed
Them, and I got real p----d
To think they could doubt my war

Yet, today
The end is far away
They're mad about my war

They all know I lied
Failure I can't hide

So, I smile and say
"When a flamer's plan dies
"Smoke gets in your eyes"

c 2006 Tommy Turtle

A Platters parody about Bush? What a coincidence: I've been calling him "The Great Pretender" for five years! And it's now "Twilight Time" for him! If it looks like a lame duck, limps like a lame duck, and lies like a lame duck...

Keep on writing them. It's getting harder and harder for Chimpy to defend his actions, esp. the illegal spying on all Americans. Next thing you know, he'll be wanting to spy on our undergarments "just to make sure there's no bombs or WMD in there ya know"

Carol, see comment under "Unauthorized Spying Song".
Michael, very clever comments, as were "Bashes" and "Vogue" at the aforementioned.

Looks like Carol foresaw the nude airport scanners.
