Beat on Iraq With a Baseball Bat (Oh Yah)

Bomb Iraq!
by digby

Gosh, I get a kind of warm feeling remembering those good old days back in 2002, when we were all hunkered down around Atrios’ place, watching the metaphorical skies fill with fireworks. We even had our own campfire song:

If you’ve got no other reason, bomb Iraq (clap, clap)
If you’ve got no other reason, bomb Iraq (clap, clap)
If you’ve got no other reason, other than election season
If you’ve got no other reason, bomb Iraq (clap, clap)

Oh, bomb-bomb-bomb, bomb-bomb Iran,
Bomb-bomb-bomb, bomb-bomb Iran…

Insert faces of neocons, media hacks, and/or prominent right-bloggers

You got me rockin’ and a-rollin’,
Rockin’ and a-reelin’,
Bomb Iran!
Bomb-bomb, bomb-bomb Iran…

Samarra … under the bombsights
Way down low,
There’s a land that I heard of
Once on a Fox News show.

Samarra … under the bombsights
Death rains through,
And the porn that you dare wank to
Really does come true.

Someday I’ll wish upon a war
And wake up where blood spilled is far
Beneath me.
Where Muslims melt like jelly beans
Ensconced at my computer screen
That’s where you’ll find me.

Samarra … under the bombsights
Tracers fly.
Death’s dealt under the bombsights.
Why then, oh why can’t I?

If happy little tracers fly
Under the bombsights
Why, oh why can’t I?


Can I recommend, as alternate lyrics:

You got me tankin’ in the pollin’Hurtin’ and a-reekin’Bomb Iran
Bomb-bomb, bomb-bomb Iran


Bomb-bomb, bomb-bomb Iran

Hey, that song helped elect Ronald Reagan. Why shouldn’t the Rethugs want to play one of their Greatest Hits?


My little brother was singing the second ditty way back in the eighties.

Mike Love is already a freeptard.
