The Lyrics

Apparently, the war in Iraq is long over...and apparently the Allies won. Tell that to the soldiers still serving (and dying) in the desert, and their families praying for their return. A guy I know is returning to Iraq next week, and this song is written on behalf of his mother...
Bush and Blair, you had our trust
Now don't tell us that the war was just

Our sons ain't gonna fight anymore
Beneath a bright blue Iraqi sky
This question, it deserves a reply..
What was the war for?

Empty words fade like desert tracks
Asking you; please send our children back

Our sons ain't gonna fight anymore
For rhetoric we no longer buy
How many innocents have to die?
Chalk up the score, sir...

Slowly the tide is turning
Peace we're learning
We can't go on...

Our sons ain't gonna fight anymore
To Baghdad they will say a goodbye
Believing that the war was a lie
Shouting "No more, sir..."

Our sons ain't gonna fight anymore (repeat)

Poignant and sadly very true. Good pacing

This may sound a little precious, but...this is not a humorous piece.....when I'm voting in the "Funny" section for a serious parody, I replace "Funny" with "Depth of Meaning" and rate it thus..that way, parodies with a message don't lose out in the scoring...but thanks for your votes anyway

Triple Nickel. The song is not "funny" per sť, but it sure has message, and I think, like Kristof said, "funny" can also be understood as "seriousness" here. I think a parody can either be a serious subject turned fun, or a fun subject turned serious.

DKTOS, but couldn't agree more with the sentiment. And people want to re-elect Bush. I just don't get it...

i may not be the smartest girl on the block, but i don't know how you'd turn a fun topic serious. kind of like "here is my hard hitting expose on the TRUTH about candy land, where the molasses swamps are a breeding ground for future candy ruffians. it is called 'candyland ruffians are taking over the universe,' and it is sung to the tune of 'nothing compares 2 u,' by sinead o'connor."

see, i started out being serious there, and it still made me lol. so, i don't know. i guess if you really found out about some ruffians in a place that was once considered safe, it might be more serious. but i just made that up.

Great job, Kristof, though Frankie Valli had the original version (his first solo record) before the Walker Brothers had the hit version, both in 1966.

Excellent, Kristof.

Blair is still in denial about it, and I can't stop thinking his so-called heart trouble was a front.
