The Lyrics

Christmas 2002: Terror reigns in Iraq. George Bush, certain of Saddam's WMD program, attempts to convince a skeptical world that war is justified.
Oh, wait, that's Christmas 2003. Anyway, for those who recall the pre-war holiday spirit...
SLAY RIDE

Just get those smart bombs whistling, mis-mis-missiling through
We're waving See You Later to a Mideast dictator or two
Despite their pale objections, they'll fail inspections, it's true
Come on, let's don our khakis and bid those Iraqis adieu

Get Iraq! Get Iraq! Get Iraq! Let's go
Get on with the show
Can't wait until we set Baghdad aglow
Get Iraq! Get Iraq! Get Iraq! It's grand
Re-wrecking this land
We're bombing along till Saddam's in a "nucular" winterland

This guy's gone biological, pathological-ly
With arms of mass destruction, but we'll halt construction with glee
Enough of nonperforming, we're Desert Storming, Take Three
Come all you torqued Kuwaitis and torch the Euphrates with me

Fire your scuds till every room in Al-Sajoud's agleam
It'll be the perfect ending to this dude's regime
Blow him off of his throne and mail him home inside a gift-wrapped box
Then vaccinate me for anthrax and smallpox
Pox pox pox!
There's a happy feeling kissing such a beast goodbye
One that all the oil in all the Middle East can't buy
It's like souvenirs from the Carter years before this all began
A toast we raise to the days they were fighting against Iran

So get those smart bombs whistling, mis-mis-missiling through
Saddam, we're pleased to trouble you, me and W. too
We'll grab those pissed Kuwaitis and torch the Euphrates - yahoo!
Come on, let's don our khakis and bid the Iraqis adieu!

I love this one, it's one of my favorites of yours! You did a great job with it, the internal rhymes are a treat and it gets me giggling from the very first line.

Can you imagine how many votes this would have gotten a year ago? MAN THIS RULES! Sorry, but you just don't see couplets like "Fire your scuds till every room in Al-Sajoud's agleam/ It'll be the perfect ending to this dude's regime" every day. On a different note, I want to apologize; I reread the lyrics to your version of "My Favorite Things" (available NOW! On the Robert Lund cd ELVES GONE WILD! AT www.elvesgonewild.com!) and realized I must have subconsciously gotten the idea for the "Someday I'll Marry J.Lo" song from one of its lines. But to make up for it, I plan to BUY LOTS OF COPIES OF ELVES GONE WILD!! AVAILABLE NOW AT www.elvesgonewild.com!!! Claude out.

Spaffy, I plan to order one up very soon!
Claude, what's up with the "Claude out" stuff. It looks a bit familiar. =O

Diva: I'm sure I don't know what you mean. Everything I do is completely original. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to my original new song, "Oprah Pees, Oprah Farts". Claude out.

Thanx, Billy & Peter & Diva!

C4P: Since I am the *only one* who has *ever* made a J.Lo marriage joke, it's obvious that you ripped me off. But I suppose I'll have to forgive you if you keep stumping for me. Spaff out.

very funny! I couldn't stop laughing! I saw this thing yesterday that was talking about this girl that had the same name:Jennifer lopez. she said that her family and friends also called her J lo as a nick name. they also said that she had even gotten the moves down. Pathetic. I didn't think that she did a very good job. did anyone else see it? It was no ET. last night.

Thanx, Pinck. Sorry I missed it the J.Lo thing - I'm sure she had some very wise things to say about Iraq.
Pincky - May 25, 2004 - Report this comment
thas ok, I feel neglected all the time. don't worry, o offence taken, I really didn't expect a response....thanx.
Pincky - May 26, 2004 - Report this comment
I thought that they had said somthing about J lo on the song..... silly me. I guessing that everybody thinks that im really weird now......
Spaff.com - May 28, 2004 - Report this comment
Pincky: Not to worry - we're all really weird here. Plus, I do mention J.Lo in about 90% of my parodies, and "bombs" in this one could be read as a reference to Gigli. So no sweat, and thanx again.
