The Lyrics

The Iraqi election was a success and they have voted for the peace and against the war. The sooner the cut-throats notice they have lost their cause, the sooner my song will be reality.
The tyrant has been toppled and he sure did bite the dust
his army has been wiped out and his tanks they gather rust
the cut-throats' fight is vain as the election has been just
It's time get boys back home!

Glory, glory, hallelujah
Praise the Jesus and praise Allah!
Tie the ribbon that is yellow!
and get those boys back home!

The Yanks did start the diesel that did not go in retreat
they fought the thugs and cut-throats in the field and on the street
Their kinfolks wait at home and they will back them heartly greet
we want our boys back home!

Glory, glory, hallelujah
Praise the Jesus and praise Allah!
Tie the ribbon that is yellow!
and get those boys back home!

In the year of Seven Six the freedom triumphed across the sea
now the Land of the Twin Rivers has become democracy
The Yanks have done their job and need no longer there to be
so get those boys back home!

Glory, glory, hallelujah
Praise the Jesus and praise Allah!
Tie the ribbon that is yellow!
and get those boys back home!

I think everyone wants them back home; and it's partly due to them (the troops) that we have a home.

This is one of those parodies where the "How Funny" rating could work better as a "How Touching" or "How Thought-Provoking."

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
