Baghdad Boys

They brought the boys to basic by bus,
without any fanfare, without any fuss.
They taught them to march, they taught them to drill,
they taught them to fight, they taught them to kill.
And after all that, they taught them some more,
to get them all ready to go off to war.

They learned to stand straight; they learned to stand tall,
they learned how to hate, they learned how to fall,
they learned how to kill using only their hands,
they got lots of orders, there were lots of demands.
They taught them to speak an unusual way,
yes sir and huahh was all they could say.

Finally finished they put them in planes
and sent them to Baghdad to join in the games.
Many young boys lasted less than a year,
(because they were taught they had nothing to fear).
They brought the boys to basic by bus,
and sent them home in a bag.
