Waist Deep In The Big Dusty-And The Little Fool Says To Push On

With reference to President "I'm the decider" Bush's decision to putting 20,000 or thousand more troops on the dusty streets of Baghdad and Anbar province, I feel the urge to revise a section of Pete Seeger's classic, "Waist Deep In The Big Muddy."

Well, I'm not going to point any moral;
I'll leave that for yourself
Maybe you're still walking, you're still talking
You'd like to keep your health.
But every time I read the papers
That old feeling comes on;
We're -- waist deep in the Big Dusty
And the little fool says to push on.

Waist deep in the Big Dusty
And the little fool says to push on.
Waist deep in the Big Dusty
And the little fool says to push on.
Waist deep! Neck deep! Soon even a
Tall man'll be over his head, we're
Waist deep in the Big Muddy!
And the little fool says to push on!

And the big fools? The ones who will not raise their voices in protest.
