Cakewalk to Baghdad

From the guys who gave you… I-Feel-Like-I’m-Fixin’-to-Die back in 1967.

We now get Cakewalk to Baghdad. Lyrics here.

If this chorus doesn’t get stuck in your head for the rest of the day….

Next we’re gonna cakewalk into Teheran,
Gonna cakewalk to Damascus and Pyong-yin-yang
When we strut on in,
Everybody’s gonna cheer
They’ll be wavin’ old glory,
We’ll have kegs of beer, just like that…


Do you think we’ll see those Bush boys patrollin’ the streets
Like our soldiers got to do in Basram and Tikrit?
We gonna see Richard Perle cakewakin’ ’round
The streets and alleys of Baghdad town?

Cakewalk to Baghdad,
Cakewalk to Baghdad

Easy to cakewalk in … not so easy to cakewalk out.

And to snap you back into reality:

Iraqis attack British troops after Helicopter crash
