Saddamian Rhapsody (To be sung to the tune of "Bohemian Rhapsody," with apologies to Freddie Mercury) Copyright 2006 - 2007 The Token Hippie
Is this the New Iraq Is this just fantasy Condemned by infidels No escape from judiciary Open your eyes Look up to the skies and see- I’m just a despot, I get no sympathy And now it’s easy come, easy go They‘re hanging me, this blows But even though this blows, doesn’t really matter to me To me
Allah, I killed some Kurds Rained down gas upon their heads Ethnic cleansing, they were dead. Allah, my fun had just begun When Bush came in and drove me away Sunnis, oooooo Hear my battle cry I won’t be back tomorrow but Let violence carry on, carry on as if my death didn’t matter
Too late, my time has come But I’m not gonna whine Like I did in court that time Goodbye everybody - I’ll just hang here And leave you all behind to face the troops Allah, oooo (anyway the sand blows) It’s my time to die I sometimes wish I’d never invaded Kuwait at all-
I see a hooded silhouetto of a man Oh Shiite, Oh Shiite. I’m sure he’s not Baath party Oh and now they’re videotaping, this is irritating to me… Gallow-dayo, gallow-day, Gallow-dayo, gallow-dayo Gallowdayo, oh no. I was once a poor boy nobody loved me. He was a poor boy from a poor family. Spare him his life from this monstrosity I’m the rightful leader here --will they let me go-- (Iraqi government) We’re in control. We will not let you go (Bush) We’re in - I mean they’re in control. They won’t let you go. (Kurds) Whoever’s in control will not let you let him go Will not let you go-let me go Will not let you go let me go No,no,no,no,no,no,no- Be that way, be that way don’t let me go Cause Allah akbar, there's virgins set aside for me, for me, for me!!
So you think you can hang me and make it all right So you think you can hang me and end this big fight No way, no fucking way It won’t change a thing, won’t change thing over here
It won’t really matter Anyone can see Killing me won’t matter, this will end up as World War III.
