I know you believe me
why shouldn't you believe me
I'm information minister in Saddam's land Iraq
I'm working for Saddam
my peaceful friendly Saddam
that only wants the best for all the peoples in Iraq

I tell you the truth
I always tell the truth
I've heard to my astonishment some people say I lie
it hurts me so much
I can not say how much
but all that I can say is that I'd rather die than lie

I've been to the moon
that lovely yellow moon
and I can tell you truthfully that it is made of cheese
I talked to the man
you know the real moon man
and he has promised me one of his money growing trees

when I went to school
oh yes I went to school
I was the most intelligent of pupils in Iraq
and I am so glad
so very very glad
that I can help Saddam to tell the truth here in Iraq

just one more thing
just one more little thing
as information minister in Saddam's land Iraq
I tell folks the truth
I always tell the truth
and I am glad to tell the truth in Saddam's land Iraq
