    [b]'Ode to the Frogs[/b]

    Eleven thousand soldiers
    lay beneath the dirt and stone,
    all buried on a distant land
    so far away from home.

    For just a strip of dismal beach
    they paid a hero's price,
    to save a foreign nation
    they all made the sacrifice.

    And now the shores of Normandy
    are lined with blocks of white:
    Americans who didn't turn
    from someone else's plight.

    Eleven thousand reasons
    for the French to take our side,
    but in the moment of our need,
    they chose to run and hide.

    Chirac said every war means loss,
    perhaps for France that's true,
    for they've lost every battle
    since the days of Waterloo.

    Without a soldier worth a damn
    to be found within the region,
    the French became the only land
    to need a Foreign Legion.

    You French all say we're arrogant.
    Well hell, we've earned the right;
    we saved your sorry nation
    when you lacked the guts to fight.

    But now you've made a big mistake,
    and one that you'll regret;
    you took sides with our enemies,
    and that we won't forget.

    It wasn't just our citizens
    you spit on when you turned,
    but every one of yours who fell
    the day the towers burned.

    You spit upon our soldiers,
    on our sailors and Marines,
    and now you'll get a little taste
    of just what payback means.

    So keep your Paris fashions
    and your wine and your champagne,
    and find some other market
    that will buy your airplanes.

    And try to find somebody else
    to wear your French cologne,
    for you're about to find out
    what it means to stand alone.

    You see, you need us far more
    than we ever needed you.
    America has better friends
    who know how to be true.

    We'ld rather stand with warriors
    who have the will and might,
    than huddle in the dark with those
    whose only flag is white.

    We'll take the Brits, the Aussies,
    the Israelis and the rest,
    for when it comes to valor
    we have seen that they're the best.

    We'll count on one another
    as we face a moment dire,
    while you sit on the sidelines
    with your sign, "friendship for hire."

    We'll win these war without you
    and we'll total up the cost,
    and take it from your foreign aid,
    and then you'll feel the loss.

    And when your nation starts to fall,
    well Frenchie, you can spare us.
    Just call the Germans for a hand,
    they know the way to Paris.
