Lyrics

It's time for Tony to face charges;
It's time for a Citizen's Arrest.
There's an empty dock in the Hague
Dying to have him as its guest.

There's a million bodies buried in Iraq
Whose ghosts cry out in despair;
'There were no weapons of mass destruction
So where's 'The People versus Tony Blair?'

There were no weapons about to hit London
Within the space of three quarters of an hour.
Tony was lying to Parliament and his country –
For Iraq never toppled the twin towers.

He and Campbell were conned by the neo-cons.
They were impressed by American power
Into letting themselves be drawn into war crimes
With Iraq being bombed for hour after hour.

A million were bombed to smithereens
Killed by shells tipped with uranium –
Causing birth defects to pregnant women
Lasting from generation to generation.

As a lawyer you're aware that aggressive warfare,
Under the Nuremburg Protocols,
Constitutes the ultimate crime in international law –
Your avoiding justice makes people emotional.

To add insult to injury you've profited, Tony,
And you swan about in a private jet.
It's made you popular amongst the corrupt;
You're part of the International Set.

But the International Criminal Court
Is keeping your seat in the dock warm,
And anyone carrying out a successful arrest
Promises to go down a storm.

They'll be rewarded with worldwide cheers
They'll be greeted by great sighs of relief,
For at last the rule of law and of human rights
Won't be undermined by a grinning thief.

There is a bounty on the head of Tony Blair. ArrestBlair.org offers a reward to people attempting a citizen's arrest of Tony Blair for crimes against peace. Read more...

Weird Al Yankovic: Christmas at Ground Zero

Weird Al Yankovic

Lyrics

Christmas at Ground Zero

It's Christmas at ground zero
There's music in the air
The sleigh bells are ringing and the carolers are singing
While the air raid sirens blare

It's Christmas at ground zero
The button has been pressed
The radio just let us know
That this is not a test

Everywhere the atom bombs are dropping
It's the end of all humanity
No more time for last-minute shopping
It's time to face your final destiny

It's Christmas at ground zero
There's panic in the crowd
We can dodge debris while we trim the tree
Underneath the mushroom cloud

Ronald Reagan:
Well, the big day is only a few hours away now.
I'm sure you're all looking forward to it
as much as we are

You might hear some reindeer on your rooftop
Or Jack Frost on your windowsill
But if someone's climbing down your chimney
You better load your gun and shoot to kill

It's Christmas at ground zero
And if the radiation level's okay
I'll go out with you and see all the new
Mutations on New Year's Day

It's Christmas at ground zero
Just seconds left to go
I'll duck and cover with my Yuletide lover
Underneath the mistletoe

It's Christmas at ground zero
Now the missiles are on their way
What a crazy fluke, we're gonna get nuked
On this jolly holiday

What a crazy fluke, we're gonna get nuked
On this jolly holiday!
