Did you really vote for him?
Everyone did. It was unanimous.
Hey, is that a beret you're wearing?
Gee, it must've been great torturing infidels with him.
You gonna try to burn the oil fields today?
By the way, where'd you meet him?

I met him in the Baghdad streets
His giant portraits smiled at me
See his pictures? (Yes, we see)
That's when I fell for
The leader of Iraq!

The West was always calling him names (names, names)
They said he had nukes and he's clearly insane
(Just 'cause he kills his friends don't mean he's insane)
They said he raped his land for cash
But I love a dictator - with a mustache
I'm sorry they hate you
The leader of Iraq!

Can you really blame him for gassing the Kurds? (Kurds, Kurds)
Or whacking his sons for their dissident words?
(Don't run away from the Godfather then try to eat your words)
His war with Iran was great!
And big deal about Kuwait!
He's my kind of despot
The leader of Iraq!

Then one day the Coalition arrived
Must've told the UN they blow
As Saddam hunkered in his bunker
Run into the desert, I begged him, Go!
But whether he heard, I'll never know
(No no no no no no no!)
Look out! Look out! Look out!

They say there'll be freedom but I wanna scream
Remembering the thrill of his wicked regime
They're cheering in the USA
But authoritarian megalomaniacs don't come along every day
I'll never forget him
The leader of Iraq!

(Saddam - dom dom dom dom dom dom)
The leader of Iraq - now he's gone
(Bomb - bomb bomb bomb bomb bomb bomb)
The leader of Iraq - now he's gone
[Etc. to fade]
