Subject: RE: Origins: I'm asking you sergeant where's mine
Four years ago I added the following verse and thought/hoped it would have a short life span. But that's not how it turned out.

George W and Tony were hatching their plans
To stop soldiers' lives being a bore
We're sending you off to the sun and the sand
How exciting you're going to war
We think Saddam's got bombs , we think he's got guns
His terrible plans you will foil
But the best of good reasons to kill Britain's sons
We certainly know he's got oil.

I like to intoduce the song as "the one I co wrote with Billy Connolly" but I don't know how the Bigyin would react if he heard me saying that.
