You got 48 hours to go
Best start wrestling with your soul
because a Texas boy's got a big hard on for you, man
You got 48 hours to go
Better climb up out your hole
Or burrow in deep, burrow in deep burrow in deep
like a tick, like a tick like a tick, man!

Run run run run run away
And live to Saddam-ize another day
You ain't got time to shit or pray
cuz the dogs of rationale have gone astray
They've gone astray.

You got 48 hours left
You can almost smell his breath
It smells of high horse
It smells of high horse
You got 48 hours to go
And they're coming win, place or show
So lay down your money, lay down your money, lay down your money

Are you bettin' on the Yanks in the clanky old tanks?
Are you firing up the Kroner are you firing up the Francs?

When you're 48 hours done
will they find that smoking gun
Or a basket of snipe
A bucket of tripe
Some asses to wipe
It's all just hipe cuz there's oil to swipe

You got 48 hours to go

    General CommentThis song is pretty obvious. It's about war. The thing I'm not certain about is if it's about reinstating the draft or not.

    "You got 48 hours left
    You can almost smell his breath
    It smells of high horse
    It smells of high horse
    You got 48 hours to go
    And they're coming win, place or show
    So lay down your money, lay down your money, lay down your money"

    This is the verse that leads me to believe that this song would be about trying to get away from the draft.

    General CommentIt might be about reinstating the draft for American troops fighting in Iraq. It sounds like it's about Iraq because of "Saddam-ize," the mentions of oil, and the talk about living in a hole. And someone is referred to as a "Texas boy" **cough**cough**.
