A History of Iraq (based on an article in the wikipedia)

Way back in the old days
Before Christ was born,
In three thousand twenty BC,
In Mesopotamia
Old cultures thrived,
The cradle of our history.

Sumeria, Akkadia, Babylonia, Assyria,
Chaldea, we love ya, unconditionally,
For your math, philosophy,
And writing and science and law.

Many years la-ater, Islam did spread,
Led by Commander Walid.
Rashiduns ru-uled, including Ali,
Then came the U-u-mayyads.

Baghdad, Baghdad,
Head of Abbasid Cali.
Then came the Mongols,
Then Ottoman Turks who allied
With the Kaiser's Germany.
Then Britain drove out
The Ottoman Empire.

Three Ottoman re-egions
Then soon became
The new, new, new state of Iraq.
Britain first ru-uled,
Then Hashemite kings,
Then coup after coup did attack.

Saddam Hussein
Killed anyone who opposed,
Then came the Gulf War,
Then sanctions that took more of life,
Than we would have li-iked to see.
Then America came
And drove out Saddam.

Do-o do. Do. Do.
Do do do do.
Do do do do do.
Dee-ee dee. Dee. Dee.
Dee dee dee dee.
Dee dee dee dee dee.
La-a la. La. La.
La la la la.
La la la la la.
Do-o do. Do. Do.
Do do do do.
Do do do do do.
