"Perhaps in a dental crown?.."
"Perhaps in a dental crown?.."
Lots of folks back East they say
Send your kid to Iraq today
Beat the hot old dusty way
To Baghdad's borderline..

Cross the desert sands they'll roll
Shootin' up that ole dust bowl,
Think they're headin' to a super bowl
But this is what they find.

The Bathists at the port of Basra say
Don't think if you'll invade we'll go away..

Besides we ain't got no WMD, -George,
We ain't got no WMD !
Well, maybe you can find one in Texas,
Nevada, Colorado, Tennessee..

Now Iraq -was a Garden of Eden,
A paradise for Adam & Eve
And believe it or not,
You can search all you want,
But we ain't got no WMD.

If you want to go disarm
That can't do nobody harm
Take a vacation -in the desert or the Gulf..

Maybe eat some fries in France
Just take off those army pants
'Cause this war ain't gonna stop by itself.

And the coffins with the flags upon 'em say
That's # 2000 killed today..

We ain't got no WMD, -George,
We ain't got no WMD
Maybe you can find one in Texas,
Nevada, North Dakota, Tennessee..

Now Iraq -was a Garden of Eden,
No place for our soldiers to be
And -you like it or not,
You can lie all you want
But we ain't got no WMD.

Now recruiters are not makin' quota
Saw one out in North Dakota
Promising a high school senior he'd get 20K
.
Good benefits, a great career
Never be in combat gear
Just sign his name on that line today.

But no matter what recruiters say they'll do
They just want cannon fodder out of you

We ain't got no WMD, -George,
We ain't got no WMD..
Maybe you can find one in Texas,
Nevada, North Dakota, Tennessee..

Now Iraq -was a Garden of Eden,
No place for our soldiers to be
And- you like it or not,
You can lie all you want)
But we ain't got no WMD.

Recruiters cruisin' in the hall
of my school, they got some gaul
Actin' like they're a friend of mine.

How in hell they know my name?
That I got a soccer game,
I told him that his line was assenine..

'Cause no matter what you hear recruiters say
They just want you to sign your life away..

Oh we ain't got no WMD, -George,
We ain't got no WMD!
But maybe you can find one in Texas,
Nevada, North Dakota, Tennessee..

Now Iraq -was a Garden of Eden,
No place for our soldiers to be
And -you like it or not,
You can lie all you want
But we ain't got no WMD,

And- you like it or not,
You can lie all you want
But we ain't got no WMD.
