The Wrath of the Ba'ath has been upon us
The Tikrit clan have us in thrall
Beni el-Kalb, annihilate them
Scorch them with fire from the sky
Colour the Tigris scarlet
With their blood from Tyrus to Nineveh

Babel, Mother of Harlots
And all Abominations of the Earth
A metropole of incest where the fornicators rule
Bacchanal orgies drenched in c** undaunted by sodomy
The greatest w***e of the ancient world shivers in ecstasy

Saddam Hussain, the Shepherd from Tikrit
Nurtured by 'the wise' Khairullah Tulfah
'Three Whom God Should Not Have Created:
Persians, Jews, and Flies'
Usurper of Babylon, butcher of Kurds
The self-proclaimed successor of Nebuchadnezzar

Surat An-anfal, the splendid death campaign
Ordered by the bloodline of imam al-Hussain
Chemical Ali, the megalomaniac,
Orders toxic gassing from Tyrus to Nineveh

Ali Hassan Al-Majid
Wants Kurdistan to be emptied
Genocide of populace
Wiping out the Kurdish race
Wah-da! Hurriya! Isht'rikaya! Halabja!
Topzawa holocaust
Mene, tekel, upharsin
Al-Anfal! Al-Majid! Al-Anraat! Al-Hatra!
Wrath of the Ba'ath
Wah-da! Hurriya! Isht'rikaya! Halabja!
Mene, mene, tekel upharsin

Wrath of the Ba'ath
The Wrath of the Ba'ath has been upon us
The Tikrit clan have us in thrall
Colour the Tigris scarlet
With their blood from Tyrus to Nineveh

'i saw their starved lips in the gloam
With horrid warning their still fuming mouths gapиd wide
And I awoke, and found me here
The sole survivor writhing on the cold hill's side'
