 Baghdad 

To "Rehab"

(Words and Music by Amy Winehouse)

Parody Lyrics by Marcy Shaffer

Arranged by Greg Hilfman

THEY TRIED TO MAKE ME GO TO BAGHDAD.
I SAY: 
NO.
NO.
NO.
I JUST GOT BACK.
BACK FROM IRAQ.
OH.
OH.
OH.
I HAVE DONE MY TIME.
WE HAVEN'T WON.
AIN'T THAT A CRIME.
THEY'RE TRYIN' TO MAKE ME GO TO BAGHDAD.
I WON'T GO. 
GO.
GO.

I DID IT ALL FOR UNCLE SAM.
DOES HE EVEN GIVE A DAMN?
ON THIS THIRD TOUR: 
AN AMBUSH.
LOW AMMUNITION.
THE WHAM AND BAM 
WITHOUT THE THANK YOU, MA'AM.
SO NOW I'M NOT SURE ANYMORE:
WHO AND WHAT I BORE 
ENDURIN' WAR FOR.

THEY CRIED TO MAKE ME GO TO BAGHDAD.
I SAY: 
NO.
NO.
NO.
I JUST GOT BACK.
BACK FROM IRAQ.
OH.
OH.
OH.
I HAVE DONE MY TIME.
RUN IN THE SUN 
AND TUNNELED GRIME.
THEY'RE CRYIN' TO MAKE ME TO GO TO BAGHDAD.
I WON'T GO. 
GO.
GO.

THE SUIT SAID: 
WHY DO YOU THINK WE'RE THERE?
IT'S MOOT: 
DON'T KNOW AND DON'T CARE.
LEADERS. 
I'M THROUGH WITH THEIR DELUSIONS.
AND IT'S FAIR 
THAT OTHERS BEAR A SHARE.
HE GLARED: 
ARE YOU JUST SCARED TO BLEED?
I SAID: 
I'M JUST SCARED OF WALTER REED.

THEY LIED TO MAKE ME GO TO BAGHDAD.
I SAY: 
NO.
NO.
NO.
I JUST GOT BACK.
BACK FROM IRAQ.
OH.
OH.
OH.

THEY SAY: 
THIS IS NO MORASS!
THEY SAY: 
WE ARE KICKIN' ASS!
THEY SAY: 
STILL FORAYIN' ON!
I SAY: 
WILL I END UP IN TEHRAN?

THEY TRIED TO MAKE ME GO TO BAGHDAD.
I SAY: 
NO.
NO.
NO.
I JUST GOT BACK.
BACK FROM IRAQ.
OH.
OH.
OH.
I HAVE DONE MY TIME.
WE HAVEN'T WON.
AIN'T THAT A CRIME.
THEY'RE TRYIN' TO MAKE ME GO TO BAGHDAD.
I WON'T GO. 
GO.
GO.
