Here is amall step to stop it.
afterall as tom L said if any songs are going to come out of WWIII we better write them now.

Here is a song parody that came to me all at once.
to the tune of Lullaby of Broadway

Lullaby of Bagdad


Peggy:
[Spoken]
I'm sorry I can't work for FOX, politics isn't for me, I'm goin back to Rochester.

Julian:
What did you just say? Rochester
I'm offering you a chance to star in the biggest televised invasion of the middle east
since shock and awe and you say Rotten Chester?

[Singing]
Come on along we'll bomb Iran
like we did in Bagdad
the shock and awe and marching bands
like we had in Bagdad
the rumble of the roadside bombs
the rattle of machine guns
the talking heads
who quote Christ's psalms
will help us earn obscene funds

When a Georgia Guardsman says Goodnight
Its early in the morning
Teenager soldiers don't sleep tight, until the dawn
Good night marine
Good night Bush is on his way.
Sleep tight army
Sleep tight lets call it a day.
watch FOX news who say today we're here to stay.

Ensemble:
Come on along and listen to
The lullaby of Bagdad.
The hidee hi and boopa doo,
The lullaby of Bagdad.
The talking heads shout down the chicks,
And ev'ryone goes crazy.
Fake news and press are our best tricks
Til ev'rything gets hazy.

Hush-a-bye, "You will be just fine,"
You hear a doctor sayin'.
And a trooper shuts her eyes
To sleep all day:
Good night, baby,
Good night, Cheney's on his way.
Sleep tight, baby,
Sleep tight, let's call it a day!
watch FOX news who say today we're here to stay.

Come on along and listen to
The lullaby of Bagdad.
The hip hooray and bally hoo,
The lullaby of Bagdad.
The rumble of roadside bombs,
The rattle of machine guns.
the talking heads who quote Christ's psalms
will help us earn obscene funds

Peggy:
[Spoken]
I'll do it!

Ensemble:
[Cheers!] Fair and Balanced

[Singing]
Come on along-
Come on along and listen to
The lullaby of Bagdad.
The hidee hi and boopa doo,
The lullaby of Bagdad.
The talking heads shout down the chicks,
And ev'ryone goes crazy.
Fake news and press are our best tricks
Til ev'rything gets hazy.
Come on down down we'll spin you round
the ol FOX way.
