NAP IN THE PALACE

All is well on the former road to Hell
Roscoe is sleeping in the palace
He has seen, for sure, that all is well
Saddam said ‘there are no troops near Baghdad!’
… Never fear…
… Rest your head here…
That there are ‘no troops near’ is true
Roscoe has come to check it out for you
So Roscoe sleeps, the sleep of the just
He`s tired and rest he must…
No more nightmare-dreaming over there
… No troops near Baghdad…
Did you even care…
… Just rumors…
… No need to beware…
Did you believe what was said…
‘There were no troops near Baghdad…’
