The Lyrics

Can you count on France when a regime change is your goal?
Can you count on France when the UN has lost control?
When peace talks seem remote, and it's time to cast the vote,
How do French vote - what is their role?

The US says that you gotta set a deadline date.
If we ignore Saddam, then he might drop a bomb - on Kuwait!
Saddams's been there before,
He lost the Kuwait War.
He still violates
UN mandates.

And it's all because Osama financed the nine-eleven tragedy,
And Saddam supported the al-Qaida strategy.
When peace talks seem remote, and it's time to cast the vote,
How do French vote - what is their role?

Iraqis lost the Gulf War, they signed surrender terms,
They also signed big contracts with French construction firms
The French don't want to fight; they're trying just to hide.
But bombs are found over there, so Tony Blair
Says "Let's set a deadline."
Oh no, Chirac will veto, the French are fried!

You can count on France if you're seeking good escargot.
You can count on France for a really great white Bordeaux,
But when Saddam must be had, and it's time to hit Baghdad,
Forget the French - they'll just say no!
Forget the French - they will veto!
Forget the French - they will not go!
