Iraq Iraq

Iraq, Iraq, we've got your back.
We'll go or stay. On what you say.
Iraq, Iraq. Oh, please don't crack.
Please find another way.

We came for WMD,
Then stayed to build democracy.
But then things went from bad to worse.
And now it's like a curse.

Shiite, Sunni, civil war.
Iran, Qaeda, crime and more.
They say America's to blame.
They wish we never came.

Votes are coming. I don't care.*
They say to go to hell, we're there.
Who to believe and who to blame?
It all seems like a game.

Iraq, Iraq, you're on the track.
To where, it's hard to say in fact.
Iraq, Iraq. Oh, please don't crack.
Please find another way.


*  "Votes are coming" refers to the upcoming 2006 Congressional elections in America, not to any upcoming Iraqi elections. The issue of Iraq seemed to have gotten politicized in recent Congressional debates with an eye towards the upcoming Congressional elections.

"
