Reflections of a working writer and reader



Dad is Baghdad

Dad’s in a bad mood, Dad’s got the blues
It’s someone else’s mess that I didn’t choose
At least we’re winning on the Fox Evening News
Nobody loves me here
Dad’s Gonna Kill Me
Dad’s Gonna Kill Me

Richard Thompson makes extensive use of military slang in this new song about Baghdad. Go here for the full lyric of Dad’s Gonna Kill Me.
And you can listen to Thompson performing the song, legally, here.
