Lyrics

Please forgive me, I forgot the point that I was making
I said if I was smart that I would
Find a way to get Iraq to wind their hostile actions down
But everybody wants Iraq to wind their hostile actions down
Everybody wants Iraq to wind their hostile actions down

Throw the bunker wide – let the U.N. crawl inside
Someone in this town – is hiding weapons underground
They want to stop the ones who want Iraq to wind their actions down
But everybody wants Iraq to wind their hostile actions down

If I were a diplomat I'd hammer out a settlement
I'd collect official signatures and
Make a point of making sure it showed up on my résumé
But everybody wants to sign a treaty for their résumé
Everybody wants to sign a treaty for their résumé

Throw the bunker wide – let the U.N. crawl inside
Someone in this town – is tryin' to burn the treaties down
They want to stop the ones who want Iraq to wind their actions down
But everybody wants Iraq to wind their hostile actions down.
