The Lyrics

The direction of the fighting's beginning to shift
The good news is giving me quite a lift
There are still horrific attacks in Iraq
But shoot, we're winnin', we're hittin' 'em back

Incremental gains day by day in Baghdad
The news on my surge, it sure ain't all bad
The high casualty rates will likely continue
Our expectations are coming out true

Winning block by block we are in Baghdad
Sure the rest of Iraq is looking quite sad
Terrorists and insurgents mount terrible attacks
You can trust me to keep giving you all of the facts

We're taking Iraq back one street at a time
And after all I've got plenty of time
You can't get me out, I'll keep decidin' fine
You can't get me out till two thousand and nine
