Jim Baker: "Change course in Iraq" (a song parody)

So we've been hearing that Jim Baker has a few recommendations for changing the course in Iraq. I call it progress, and progress raises a song in my heart. So I wrote one. Well, I wrote the words. Someone else wrote the music, some forty years ago. But it's a good song, and I hope you like my words.

(All apologies to the Beach Boys.)


Well he got his daddy's job
And he's occupyin' Iraqi land now.
Seems he forgot all about the budget,
(Kinda just like his old man now.)
And with the insurgents blasting,
The U.S. is losing (so, what's the plan, now?)

And he had fun fun fun
'Til Jim Baker called the army away.
(Fun fun fun 'til Jim Baker called the army away.)
Well the Dems can't stand him
'Cause he talks like we're still gonna win now,
(He walks like an ape now he walks like an ape)
He makes Benito Mussolini look like Monty at el-Alemein now.
(He looks like an ape now he looks like an ape)
A lotta pols call him out,
But still he pisses on world opinion now.
(He's driving us ape now, he's driving us ape)

And he had fun fun fun
'Til Jim Baker called the army away
(Fun fun fun 'til Jim Baker called the army away)

Well you knew all along
Saddam didn't have DubyaMD's now,
(You shouldn't have lied now you shouldn't have lied)
And since your dad called on Baker
You've been thinking that your fun is all through now
(You shouldn't have lied now you shouldn't have lied)
Gallup pegs you at 33
'Cause you're in a job you clearly can't do now,
(You shouldn't have lied now you shouldn't have lied)
And you'll lose seats seats seats for your party come Election Day!
(Seats seats seats for your party come Election Day)

(Repeat last two lines until November 8.)
