Conquistador
(Sung to the tune of "Conquistador" by Procol Harum)
Guest song parody by Patrick Henry D'Sant
(instrumental intro)

Conquistador, your Abrams tanks
Runs down poor Iraqis.
Your bombs kill kids and women now.
Your weak "security."

We see your armor-plated beasts
Kill reporters who have seen
Civilians' deaths erased.
There's no pity which can be seen.

Through war, you hoped... for weapons to find.
You have won... no hearts nor their minds.

Conquistador, your vultures wait
To reap the oil fields.
It's to your war machine, they bow.
Their hate has taken seed.

And through regime change, you have made
More graves for ones you've killed.
What will it cost besides disgrace,
When revenge has its fill?

Through war, you hoped... for weapons to find.
You have won... no hearts nor their minds.

Conquistador, in three weeks time,
Won war, but not respect.
Because the world now jeers at you.
More war, you will regret.

And as the gloom begins to fall,
You'll see there's no hope, most of all.
Though you came with sword held high
You will not conquer, only die.

Through war, you hoped... for weapons to find.
You have won... no hearts nor their minds.

Through war, you hoped... for weapons to find.
Was it peace... or profits that died?

(repeat refrain and fade)
