The Lyrics

on their way back from afghanistan,
had two more bombs that they thought they'd drop
on the way back to the base at Kandahar, cause they wanted a war
Colin Powell said hello, they said Hey wass doin Co?

boys, sit down I got bad news, it's gonna hurt
said "i'm chief of staff and you know that's right,
but you guys aint done tonight,
there's another target out there that I want you to hit
well them two boys got in their planes,
and they flew back up with a list of names
and saddam Hussein , I'd kill the bastard myself

That's the night that the lights went out in Basra,
that's the night that they bombed an evil old man
don't trust your soul to no desert arab leader
just blow him up and leave him in the sand

well the boys flew on but they didnt get far,
flyin low, over Kandahar, lookin here lookin there,
for a place to hit, and to blow it
and Saddam Hussein, he poked out his head,
they loosened their loads, and now he's dead..
what a fitting end for that asshole, dont ya know it?

and flying back to the base that night,
they knew that beer was cold and right now they just wanted to
show off their upcoming medal
cause flying a plane in the fog of war
aint to scary, and you never get bored..
but speed baby, is always right to the metal

well the U.N inspectors, they proved they are dicks
especially that idiot, whats his name, Blix?
when they found out that saddam had chemical weapons
anthrax,and vx gases all right,
and dirty bombs, and chemicals to rot out your eyes,
but baby, we'll destroy them, first thing that happens..

That's the night that the lights went out in Basra,
that's the night that they bombed an evil old man
don't trust your soul to no desert arab leader
just blow him up and leave him in the sand

Basrah is spelt B-A-S-R-A-H...at least thats the proper spelling. For some reason certain news organizations feels that the H is not needed....

Billy, I think that your comment about the spelling of Basrah is picky and inconsequential--it's like looking for a speck, and wow, you found one; so what
