THE EMBEDDED REPORTER'S SONG

 

(A Song for the Iraq War)

 

Lachlan Irvine

 

[C][F][C][C][F][C]

 

[C] I'm an embedded re-[F]-porter, look at [C] me,

[C] Dashing through I-[F]-raq, so daring-[G]-ly.

[C] War is hell, and [F] war is gory,

[C] That's okay, 'cause [G] I'm the story.

[F] I'm an embedded re-[G]-porter, look at [C] me, [F] me, [C] me!

 

[C][F][C][C][F][C]

 

[C] I'm an embedded re-[F]-porter, it's my [C] war,

I'm [C] Lawrence of A-[F]-rabia to the [G] core.

I [C] stay alert both [F] night and day,

To [C] make sure the camera [G] points my way.

[F] I'm an embedded re-[G]-porter, look at [C] me, [F] me, [C] me!

 

[C][F][C][C][F][C]

 

[C] I'm an embedded re-[F]-porter, tried and [C] true,

No [C] independent [F] thought will I let [G] through.

[C] What's happening in the [F] war, you ask?

[C] Don't I look tough in [G] my gas mask!

[F] I'm an embedded re-[G]-porter, look at [C] me, [F] me, [C] me!

 

[C][F][C][C][F][C]

 

[C] I'm an embedded re-[F]-porter, brave and [C] bold,

[C] I tell the world ex-[F]-actly what I'm [G] told.

[C] My mouth, it seems, I [F] never close;

[C] My eyes and ears? Why, [G] who needs those?

[F] I'm an embedded re-[G]-porter, look at [C] me, [F] me, [C] me!

 

[F] I'm an embedded re-[G]-porter, look at [C] me, [F] me, [C] me!

[F] I'm an embedded re-[G]-porter, look at [C] me, [F] me, [C] me!

[F] I'm an embedded re-[G]-porter, look at [C] me! [F][C]
