The Memo (to the tune of 'The Letter')

The Memo


I'm looking for a reason to invade Iraq
The UN's getting snippy and they won't attack
We'll cook a mess of lies and say they came from spies
Dear Tony, I'm sending a memo

And I don't care how many lives we gotta spend
Worldcom's going in the black again
It's time to do some shootin', the oil rigs need lootin'
Dear Tony, I'm sending a memo

Well I'm writin' a memo
cause diplomacy is such a massive bore
Ohh listen Tony can you see
I'm nothing but a freakin' Bechtel corporate whore, anyway...

I don't care which programs we gotta cut
My domestic agenda's really in a rut
Osama's still in hidin', approval rating's slidin'
Dear Tony, I'm sending a memo

Nice lyrical adaptation. It's a sad commentary on the difference between the 1960s and this era (or maybe it's the parallels). IraqNam, or I mean, uh...
