Blood for Oil
by Larry Mitchell
O Iraq was the land we wanted.
There was oil under all that sand.
Without oil this country would be one big junkyard.
So let's go down that perilous road and attack all those Iraqis and kill them.
Yea, let's impose our culture and democracy on those that remain.
They will call us their liberators and throw flowers at us,
(The roadside bombs, mortar attacks, and the drive by shootings must be the thorns.)
Our foreign policy feeds the beast and then we sit
And wonder why Anti-American feelings grow.
Democracy is gonna work in that country. We swear.
All the chickenhawks said it would work and we all believe them.
Yea, they say Saddam musta had something to do with 911,
And WMDs were in every missile and bunker,
So let's fill up our gas tanks with the blood of all those Iraq children.
Let us wipe out their culture and say it is for their own good.
Let us brutalize Iraq prisoners in Saddam's old prisons,
And say the girls were just having a little S&M fun.
Yea, dam it! we will win those people’s hearts and minds before we are done.
We send our sons and daughters over there to fight and die,
So those select few can make all those billions (as in the corporate looting in Iraq!),
The sad days in Iraq, soldiers dying everyday,
We hide their coffins when they come home so no one can see.
We can't honor our fallen heroes like England and Spain.
And it's that ole Vietnam sorrow revisited for those families here at home.
O get disabled in Iraq and you are screwed in more ways than one.
You could suffer from the trauma of war!
You could suffer from exposure to depleted uranium!
You could suffer from the bites of desert flies!
You could suffer from the after effects of malaria pills!
You can stand there with no arms; you can sit there with no legs!
And then when you go knock at the door of the VA
They will slam the door in your face!
'cos they are cutting your Veterans benefits behind your back.
If the government can't take of our Veterans when they get home,
They shouldn't send them off to war in the first place!
This country doesn't need to treat a new generation of Veterans
Like it did the Vietnam Veteran generation!
O I support the troops in Iraq.
I say bring them all home now.
Instead of one by one in body bags.
