OR IF YOU PREFER, RHYMIN’ SIMON TAKES ON SIMPLE SIMON:¬†

The problem is clearly “stay the course,” it’s plain to see
There’s civil war between the Shia and Sunni
We’re just not helping in their struggle to be free
There’s fifty ways, to leave Iraq, with Baker’s cover

Bush/Cheney say it’s their desire to intrude
But both Iraq and our own country, are plainly getting screwed
And now there’s a risk, of a Bush family feud
There’s fifty ways, to leave Iraq, with Baker’s cover
Fifty ways to leave, with Baker’s cover

Just grab your back-pack, Jack
Go to Sudan, Stan
Gotta’ redeploy, Roy
Just get yourself free
Take the Green-Zone bus, Gus
You don’t need to discuss much
Just Frag good old Rummy
And get yourself free

Just drop off your Bagh-dad
Go and stand down, Stan
It’s a Neo-Con ploy, Roy
Just listen to me
Hop in the car, Lamar
Get the F out of Anbar
Just jump in the Humvee
And shoot old Cheney

Bush says it grieves him so, to see us “cut and run”
But when he had his chance to serve, he “cut” the Guard to have his fun
I said I appreciate that, but you never sacrificed a son
Fifty ways to leave Iraq, with Baker’s cover

W said we have to fight them over there
Or else we’ll end up watching, The Fresh Sheik of Belair
And then Fallujah blew, and with it Republican careers
There’s fifty ways to leave Iraq, with Baker’s cover
Fifty ways to leave Iraq, with Baker’s cover

Just grab your back-pack, Jack
Go to Sudan, Stan
Gotta’ redeploy, Roy
Just get yourself free
Take the Green-Zone bus, Gus
You don’t need to discuss much
Just Frag good old Rummy
And get yourself free

Just drop off your Bagh-dad
Go and stand down, Stan
It’s a Neo-Con ploy, Roy
Just listen to me
Hop in the car, Lamar
Get the F out of Anbar
Just jump in the Humvee
And shoot old Cheney
