(with sincere apologies to Bob Marley and Eric Clapton)

(I bombed Ira-a-q)
But I didn’t kill no friends of ours
Oh, no oh
(I bombed Ira-a-q)
But I didn’t kill no friends of ours
Ooh, ooh, oo-oh

Yeah, all through the councils of the world
They’re trying to try me now
They say they want
My condemnation
For the destruction of a nation
For the death of a nation.
But I say,
Oh, now, now, oh

(I bombed Ira-a-q)
But I swear it was in our defense
Oh, no, yeah
(I bombed Ira-a-q))
And they say it was a gross offense

Saddam Hussein always hated me
For what
I don’t know
We try to bring democracy
But they want to kill it when we go
But the want to kill us as we go
And so,
It will be on Faux News:

(I bombed Ira-a-q)
But I swear it was in our defense
Where is that nation?
(I bombed Ira-a-q)
But I swear it was in our defense

Freedom came their way one day
After we leveled their towns, yeah
All of a sudden I saw
Saddam Hussein
Trying to kill my father
So I bombed
I bombed that place and I say
"If I am guilty, he will pay."

(I bombed Ira-a-q)
But I did not kill no friends of ours
I didn’t kill no friends of ours
(I bombed Ira-a-q)
But I didn’t kill no friends of ours

Terr-uh had got the better of me
And what is to be must be
Every day the War on Terr-uh goes well
The bottom will not drop out
The bottom will not drop out
I say,

(I
I
I
I bombed Ira-a-q)
Lord, I didn’t kill no friends of ours
Yeah
(I
I bombed Ira-a-q)
But I didn’t kill no friends of ours
Yeah
Oh, yeah
