    Oversight is what we need
    To save Iraq from corporate greed.
    
    
    No bid contracts.  What a crock.
    Give Iraqis back Iraq.
     
    
    Wipe the dollar signs from your eyes
    Let Iraqis unionize.
     
    
    If freedom truly is the prize
    You'd (We'd??) let Iraqis unionize.
     
    
    Drop big bombs and steal their jobs.
    To free Iraq, we kill and rob?
     
    
    U.S. companies run amok
    To give the shareholders another buck
     
    
    Corporate agenda in thin disguise
    Won't let Iraqis unionize.
     
    
    Iraqi economy up for sale
    As workers starve on a low wage scale.
     
    
    What do we want?
    - Iraqi unions
    - Contract oversight
    - To end this godforsaken chanting, pleeeeeeeeeease
     
    When do we want it?
    Now.
     
    
    
    
    This corporate piggy went to I-raq (I-raq)  [pronounce EEE-RACK]
    This piggy lobbied at home. (at home)
    This piggy overcharged millions (millions)
    left the Iraqis with none. (no!)
    Send the corporate piggies HOME! (repeat)
    
    
    Cheney and Halliburton, what do you know...
    making corporate pockets grow!
    Send your friends to Iraq!
    Give them millions in kickbacks!
    
    
    Congress you gotta do your job!
    Don't give in to corporate slobs!
    (slow) We need oversight!
    (slow) We need oversight!
    
    
    Solidarity Forever!
    Unions in Iraq!
    
    
    
    Workers here and there unite
    We will help you with your fight
    Iraqi workers need the jobs,
    The ones that US companies rob
    
    
    War is over
    US go home
    Iraqi workers
    You're not alone
    
    
    War for profit, Corporate stocks
    Give Iraqis back Iraq
    
    
    Bush and Cheney are great big hawks
    It's war for profit in Iraq
    
    
    No-bid contracts for Iraq
    Screw the worker and help the stock
    
    
    
    
     
    
    A little poem:
    
    	War profiteering
    	Is endearing
    	When you are Brown and Root.
    	But, those in Iraq
    	Know it's a crock
    	Cuz it's their jobs we loot.
     
    
    A corporate looter with D.C. ties
    Bechtel (Halliburton) profits as Iraqis die.
     
    
    Schools in shambles, sewage flows
    As Bechtel's profits grow and grow.
     
    
    Halliburton overcharges, Bechtel flops.
    A reconstruction nightmare in Iraq.
     
    
    Your profits are bloody.  Your hands are, too.
    Bechtel, Halliburton, shame on you.  
    (or, maybe just chant the one name where you are.)
     
    
    Bechtel, Bechtel, whadya say?
    How many Iraqis did you loot today? 
    
     
    Bush and Bechtel: great big hawks.
    It's war for profit in Iraq.
    
    
    Bech-tel out of Iraq!
    Let them have their country back!
    Schools and hospitals still in need!
    How much 'cause of corporate greed?!
    
    
    Piggy Piggy!
    We're not ashamed
    to call you by your real name
    Halliburton, Bechtel, Brown and Root
    go to Iraq and loot, loot, loot!
    
    
    (to the tune of Mickey Mouse)
    B-E-C - See Bechtel steal
    H-T-E - and Exploit its workers
    L-C-O-R-P
    Bechtel Corp - in Iraq, Bechtel Corp - in Iraq
    Forever may you leave Iraq for good - Bye! Bye! Bye!
    Come along and sing our song and get them off the pork
    B-E-C- H-T-E-L, Bechtel Corp!
    
    Give me a B  (B!)
    Give me an E (E!)
    Give me an C (C!)
    Give me an H (H!)
    Give me an T (T!)
    Give me an E (E!)
    Give me an L (L!)
    
    What does that spell?
    
    Criminal!
    
    
    
    Workers suffer, Bechtel lies
    Iraqi workers unionize
    
    
    Bechtel steals and Bechtel lies
    Oh! what influence money buys!
    Bechtel steals and Bechtel lies
    Corporate thieves with DC ties
