THE MAN THEY COULDN’T REMOVE
To the tune of ‘The Wreck of the Old 97’ or a 60’s folksong,’The Man who Never Returned’
The 'Butcher of Bagdad' was found hiding in a hole in the ground in late December 2003.
When they finally gave up on that pesky binLaden
Who wouldn’t stay put to die
They knew they’d have to find themselves another Bad Man
To help keep the tensions high.
So they looked all around to find a new patsy
Someone they knew couldn’t run
And they found him right there underneath their noses,
Broilin’ in the desert sun
And was he ever removed ?
Oh no he’s never removed, and his fate is still unproved.
He may roam forever ‘neath the streets of Bagdad
He’s the man we couldn’t remove.
Yes Saddam was a rogue and a well known scoundrel,
But small time just the same
‘Till he fell into the sights of the George Bush handlers
They made him what he is today.
Yes they say he went down in a underground bunker
One day back in early May.
And he’s down there still with Elvis and Osama
Just passin’ time ‘til Judgement Day
