These Boots Will Soon Be Fightin'

(apologies to Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood)

You say that we'll take the fight to ISIS
That we will destroy them from the air
But the generals say we cannot beat 'em
Unless we send in troops from you-know-where

These boots will soon be fightin'
Just say it, don't pretend
That pretty soon all these boots
Won't be 'a hittin' ground again

You say that we'll form a broad coalition
That our friends will help with the attack
I bet John McCain will French kiss Putin
Before Germany and Turkey have our back

These boots will soon be fightin'
The White House won't admit
That very soon some of these boots
Are gonna fight a world of shit

You say that we'll train the Syrian rebels
To kill the monsters who all wage jihad
But which ones are the ones we should be training
And which ones are still sucking off Assad?

These boots will soon be fightin'
Let's face it, 'cause it's true
And Barack will have to send his Peace Prize
Back to Stockholm postage due

Are you ready, boots? Too bad -- start fightin'...
