Let your mouse do the voting!

February 2, 2006

The Freewayblogger and I have been collaborating on an anti-war ditty. We finished it up and talked an animator into, well animating it. Turns out, the Huffington Post is running something they call the Contagious Festival, so we've entered it:

Iraq: The Musical

The contest has judges, who'll decide on the best entries, but there's also a "popular vote" side of the contest, so I encourage you to vote with your mouse.

Welcome visitors following the link here from the end of the viddy. If you want more political music, check out Political Collage on the music page. Abu Garum is my fave.

MP3: Iraq, You Know

Lyrics: Iraq, You Know

Fallujah, Ramadi, gonna be a party
Baquba, Samarra, goin' there tomorra
The Tigris, Euphrates... Abu-Ghraiby-baby.

Way on off overseas,
there's a place called Iraq you know,
that's where you're gonna go
instead of college next fall...

Bodies in the sand...
Is that a piece of someone's hand?
shootin' people in a foreign land
it's called Iraq you know,
that's where you're go-onna go.

Shiites and Sunnis, suicidal loonies
Just hope when their car starts
it don't turn to car parts...

Imams and Jihadis, be my big Baghdaddy...

Ooo you're goin' to Iraq you know
You'll get drafted in a year or so
It's really gonna blow
Down in Iraq you know...

Saddamists, dead-enders, huge-ass fender-benders

Like a Carribean cruise
Without the water, the chicks or booze
if you don't make it at least you'll make the news
around page 8 or so

You'll help fill out the ranks
So we can all fill up our tanks
A yellow ribbon will be all the thanks
you get from us you know...
down in Iraq you know...

Turkomen and Kurdish, you don't speak a wordish
Najaf, Nasariyah, gee it's good to see ya.
Ramadi, Fallujah, Bush has really screwed ya.

Ooo, You'll get drafted in a year or so
It's really gonna blow
Down in Iraq you know...

Be all you can be, look for WMD.

Although it's kind of a drag
no body armor? here's a body-bag.
Mom and Dad'll get to keep the flag
they send you back in though
back from Iraq you know...

Fallujah, Ramadi, gonna be a party
Baquba, Samarra, goin' there tomorra
The Tigris, Euphrates... Abu-Ghraiby-baby.
