Firing Squad

Saddam Hussein is a bad man So let’s line up the children of Iraq And shoot them.

Saddam is a very bad man So let’s line up the mothers of Iraq And shoot them.

We know that Saddam is a bad man So let’s line up all the old people of Iraq And shoot them.

Saddam is a very bad man And firing squads are old fashioned So let’s just bomb Baghdad.

After we’ve bombed the Iraqis With our “shock and awe” two-day plan Surely they will welcome us as liberators.

Surely the Iraqis will thank Allah That they have been so fortunate To have been bombed with such precision.

Surely they will recognize That Saddam is a very bad man And their oil is better in our hands.

Saddam Hussein is a very bad man So let’s line up the children of Iraq And shoot them.
