John McCain Strolling the Sweet Streets of Baghdad…

Grab your coat and get your hat,
Though someone blew up your doorstep,
Life can be so sweet,
On the Sunni side of the street!

Just ignore the pitter-pat,
Of the constant rifle firings,
Don’t accept defeat,
On the Sunni side of the street!

I used to walk in the shade with my blues on parade,
But I’m not afraid…they armored over my Range Rover!

I think war is heaven-sent
(Unlike mean Jay Rockefeller),
There’s oil beneath my feet,
On the Sunni side of the street!

Oh, I’m so glad that Bush stayed with this bullshit charade,
See? I’m not afraid…I’m elected so I’m protected!

Now I’m home, but glad I went,
It showed I’m a big brave fella,
My photo op is now complete,
On the Sunni,
On the Sunni, Sunni side of the street!

The original song, On the Sunny Side of the Street (Music by Jimmy McHugh, with lyrics by Dorothy Fields)
Original CD cover.
