The Lyrics

Has Ramsey Clark ever met a mass murderer he didn't like? The former U.S. Attorney General has been assisting the defense of Saddam Hussein and his seven co-defendants, and he previously provided legal counsel to Elizaphan Ntakirutimana, a leader of the Rwandan genocide, and Slobodan Milosevic, former President of Yugoslavia and accused war criminal, among others.
I know a tyrant deadly as a cancer,
Twenty four long years he ruled Iraq with fear,
Now virgins might not be his final answer,
But some things are quite clear:

Exxon gloats, Iraqis vote, and middle east oil's pricey,
If middle east oil's high, will you buy?
Oh, Baghdad copes and Saddam mopes and little Ramsey's dicey,
If Ramsey goes ev'rywhere, do you care?

If you're facing time for unspeakable crimes,
There's no need to squiggle or squirm
Cause you will see discounted fees
From little Ramsey's law firm.

Yes, Baghdad copes and Saddam mopes and little Ramsey's dicey,
If Ramsey goes ev'rywhere, should you ca - are?
If Ramsey Clark leaves his lair, please beware!
