When you’re happy and you know it


The anti-war idiotarians are at least good for a laugh sometimes. This is from a group at McGill University protesting war with Iraq (via Yoni):

When you’re happy and you know it, bomb Iraq

If you cannot find Osama, bomb Iraq.

If the markets are a drama, bomb Iraq.

If the terrorists are frisky,

Pakistan is looking shifty,

North Korea is too risky,

Bomb Iraq.

If we have no allies with us, bomb Iraq.

If we think someone has dissed us, bomb Iraq.

So to hell with the inspections,

Let’s look tough for the elections,

Close your mind and take directions,

Bomb Iraq.

It’s “pre-emptive non-aggression”, bomb Iraq.

Let’s prevent this mass destruction, bomb Iraq.

They’ve got weapons we can’t see,

And that’s good enough for me

‘Cos it’s all the proof I need

Bomb Iraq.

If you never were elected, bomb Iraq.

If your mood is quite dejected, bomb Iraq.

If you think Saddam’s gone mad,

With the weapons that he had,

(And he tried to kill your dad),

Bomb Iraq.

If your corporate fraud is growin’, bomb Iraq.

If your ties to it are showin’, bomb Iraq.

If your politics are sleazy,

And hiding that ain’t easy,

And your manhood’s getting queasy,

Bomb Iraq.

Fall in line and follow orders, bomb Iraq.

For our might knows not our borders, bomb Iraq.

Disagree? We’ll call it treason,

Let’s make war not love this season,

Even if we have no reason,

Bomb Iraq.

Yeah, the protestors have no idea what they’re talking about. But hey, at least it’s more imaginative than smashing windows!

I first saw it last week, but the earliest version I’ve found is from last August, here. It’s picked up considerable steam since November and it’s fascinating to see how much unbridled joy the thing is causing among the anti-war crowd. Whatever floats their boat.

Meryl’s brand new revised version is, of course, quite hilarious.

Hm. It seems I had an extra line per verse that I forgot about.

I may have to revise the song.

Meryl I read your song and it’s hysterical! I love it.

Yeah, hilariously racist. Can’t say I’m surprized.

There’s no reference to race anywhere in there….

That’s correct jaws **gives the kid a cookie** See, its like anti-semitism without semites.

No thank you on the cookie…
And again, a false analogy…..

OT: Meryl has come out with a new version of the song….quite entertaining
