Ten thousand miles from my home, and we’re standing all alone On the hot dusty streets of Baghdad Well I’m not yet 21, Just a helmet and a gun Making history on the bonny streets of Baghdad Shooting anthing that moves, just like you would in my shoes On the bonny bloody streets of Baghdad And it’s Custer in command, chasing Crazy Horse Saddam On the hot dusty streets of Baghdad There’s this target on my back, since you sent me to Iraq for no reason I believe or understand For your fear of what’s unknown, and the oil czars back home We are dying on the bitter streets of Baghdad It’s the Seventh Calvery, and the weary Third ID Bleeding on the bitter streets of Baghdad And one thing’s loud and clear, nobody wants us here On the bitter bloody streets of Baghdad One by one they cut us down, while we stand here on their ground On the bonny bloody streets of Baghdad We are here to draw their fire, then call in their funeral pyre making rubble of the bloody streets of Baghdad low break And I don’t give a damn, Even if we caught Saddam In these dirty stinking streets of Baghdad We are here to show the flag, maybe come home in a bag From these bonny bonny streets of Baghdad So now tell me mother dear, how could you let them send me here To these hot bitter streets of Baghdad Oh, your chicken hawks are swell, I just wish they’d go to hell Or send their own kids to these desperate streets of Baghdad I hope King George has learned enough, Thinking smart beats talking tough We’re the red coat sitting ducks Leave these streets to the native born of Baghdad
