stuck in Iraq with no clue (with apologies to Stealers Wheel)

Well, I don’t know why I came here today,

I got a feelin’ that I won’t get an “A”.

I’m so scared to read my final test score,

if I fail I might be headin’ to war.

.

Bush to the left of me, Kerry’s to the right

here I am stuck in Iraq with no clue.

.

Yes I’m stuck in Iraq with no clue,

and I’m wonderin’ what it is I can do.

It’s so hard to keep this frown off my face,

in a class that I wish I could ace.

.

Bush to the left of me, Kerry’s to the right

here I am stuck in Iraq with no clue.

.

Well, you started out of high school

you’re so proud to do the best you can.

Soon you talk to a recruiter,

says “you’re dumb enough to be a shooter.”

Sheessh!   Please!

.

Tryin’ to make some sense of it all,

but I can see that it makes no sense at all.

It’s cool liv’n in the low’r 48,

please don’t place me in that quagmire state.

.

Bush to the left of me, Kerry’s to the right

where am I?  stuck in Iraq with no clue.

Well, you started out of high school

you’re so proud to do the best you can.

Then you talk to a recruiter,

Sheessh!   Please!

Well, I don’t know why I came here today,

I got a feelin’ that I won’t get an “A”.

I’m so scared to read my final test score,

and I don’t think I can take anymore.

.

Bush to the left of me, Kerry’s to the right

here I am stuck in Iraq with no clue.

Yes, I’m stuck in Iraq with no clue.

Where am I? stuck in Iraq with no clue.

    thanks for the comment.
    unfortunately the entire drawing of the last is not fully shown. its a mere inside-joke. its a drawing i did of my friend ash(native to australia) holding milky with george bush and prime minister of australia john howard. i don’t know your views on george bush but i am completely against him.

    Well, I’m all caught up now … well almost. Thanks again for stopping bye. I love the title of your blog. It is one of the tenets I believe in in life. Take care in Iraq.

    thanks cd, I’m glad you can relate to “Advantages of Mutual Respect and Fair Play.” Wouldn’t the world be a better place if we all adhered to that creed?

    *** just a note to future readers… “stuck in Iraq with no clue” is a parody of the song by Stealer’s Wheel. “Stuck in the Middle with You” and was inspired by Senator John Kerry’s “botched” joke on President Bush last week.

    I am not in Iraq, I live in S.W. Florida

    peace
