Subject: Lyr Add: Why Sack Iraq?
From: Mrrzy
Date: 14 Feb 03 - 12:12 PM


Dedicated to all fellow Stop This War demonstrators and to peaceniks in general

To the tune of, and patterned after, Rock On Rockall (blicky forthcoming)

Why sack Iraq? They'll never crack, in Dubya's holy war
For he'll meet the worst resistance he's never seen before
For now they've got technology they didn't have before
So THINK! You politicians! Don't start the third world war!

O an empire is beginning, with foreign lands to seize
And the greedy eyes of Dubya are turning from the seas
In the middle of a desert, there's a place that's called Iraq
That the groping hands of Washington are reaching to attack
Other Chorus
Don't sack Iraq or they'll fight back – that's no way to end war
For we've all got technology that's not been used before
Stop calling difference evil, try sharing wealth some more
So THINK! You politicians! Don't start the third world war!

In some parts of Arabia, it's written in folklore
That America's the devil, and the cause of why you're poor
So fight with all your might and main, and kill and maim and gore
And after death you men get bloody virgins by the score!
So let's not just be silent as we walk the streets in black
Because in wooden boxes we don't want our children back
Our sons and now our daughters all have better things to do
Than march off to the desert just to make the folklore true!
Other Chorus
Small kiddies on the playground wrestle, tussle, fuss, and more
"He was gonna hit me is what I hit him back first for!"
But if it is acceptable to hit back as you say
Then how can a preemptive strike be how to stop the fray?!?
So listen to the marchers demonstrating everywhere
And all civilized people act like grownups and play fair
You should have learned in preschool all you need to know in life
Like vive la différence, and to prefer to avoid strife
Other Chorus
Although it's mostly Dubya's war, the whole world's in it too
Or will be when those wind-borne toxins start to breeze on through
Who wants to live in interesting times when species change?
I'd rather wait for asteroids to hit some mountain range!
So voters living everywhere all need to be involved
And try to sway their governments to get this soon resolved
Before this rolling snowball quashes all dissent and thought
All countries have extremists who into this nonsense bought!
Other Chorus
Now doctors (without borders) are setting up for strife
But countries (with'm) can't agree to plan for loss of life
Alliances are fracturing, old grievances relapse
Across lines with no reality except on ancient maps
Don't wait for intervention from your gods, whichever's right
But work for peace with as much will as others work to fight
It's time to change the focus to the big "us" from the small
And be humanitarian, not territorial!
Other Chorus

I think were I to perform this one I'd skip the 5th and 7th verses... and probably not repeat the chorus(es) all the time... but I like what all the verses SAY, if that makes sense.
