Two Weeks Before Christmas!

T'was two weeksbefore Christmas, And all through Iraq,

The people still worried that Saddam would be back.

The soldiers went out on their nightly patrol,

Capturing the bad guys was always their goal!

With raids seeming endless in the triangle Sunni,

We hoped that not all of Iraq was so looney!

We gathered the tribe of Saddam, in Tikrit,

And suddenly now they all started to snit!

They told of a farm where Hussein just might be

Odierno then called on our boys- from the great 4th ID!

More rapid than Baathists our soldiers they came,

And he whistled and shouted and called them by name

Now Delta, Now Rangers, Now Cavalry too!

On Green Hats, on Pilots, I need all of you!

Go to that farm and secure it right now!

Capture his a**- you guys know how!

Off went our soldiers under cover of night,

So stealthy, so quiet with no trace of light

While we back at home were eating our lunches,

Our boys on the ground were following hunches!

And then it was time for the raid to begin.

The first target came up -empty within!

Could it be our Intel was wrong once again?

No! Somewhere nearby is the wolf in his den!

And then, in a twinkling, camouflage torn away

In a hole in the ground did their quarry lay

Dazed and confused, right at them he looked,

Did the stupid old fool know his goose was now cooked?

He was dressed all in rags from his toes to his head,

And his beard was as matted as 12 day-old bread!

How the mighty had fallen, could this be Hussein?

One look in his eyes was to know he's insane!

Our boys got their man - how proud we all are

The relief in our country is felt near and far

A bath he has had now -yet he'll never be clean

Forever tainted with mass torture and his Fedaheen

To our soldiers we give our undying respect

You always give more than we ever expect

We hope you can have now a night with some fun

Your loved ones back home say- JOB DAMN WELL DONE!
