Baghdad - The Offspring - Lyrics by Various Artists


In your plane in the blue sky
You roam again
Words that echo in your mind
Make your heart beat faster

'This is no Vietnam
We will win in Iraq'

The president said, 'Let it ride'
Islam be damned
Make your last stand
In Baghdad

Warrior, the time bomb's about to go
What will you feel
Will you even wonder
If the man that's in your sights
Ever kissed his girlfriend good-bye
The Captain said, 'Kill or die'
Islam be damned
Make your last stand
In Baghdad

Great satan, our flags are burning
Soon America may find its young men In the sand
Where their casualty Is just another number
In Iraq

The president said, 'Let it ride'
You will be damned
Make your last stand
In Baghdad
