The following "rap lyrics" were written by 8-year-old Bobbi Sue French, a third-grader at Meadow Lark Elementary School in Salt Lake City. "I think war is stupid. One man should not be allowed to hurt so many people. It scares me and my friends when that's all we see on TV," she wrote in a letter to the Deseret News accompanying the lyrics.

If I had a wish

I know what I'd wish

If I had a wish

That wish would be

To stop the possibility

of a war in Iraq or in the world for that matter

I hate to see people's hopes for peace shatter

Saddam Hussein, he's only one man

We can put him in his place, I know we can.If I had a wish

I know what I'd wish

If I had a wish

That wish would be

To bring home our friends from across the sea.

People killing people over one man's belief

Just doesn't make sense causing so much grief.

We're all in one world we should cooperate

To fight with each other is a big mistake.If I had a wish

I know what I'd wish

If I had a wish

That wish would be

To destroy all the world's artillery

I'd take all the weapons, put 'em in one place

Then I'd blow them into outer space.

No more guns, no more missiles, no more nuclear bombs

And we'd all have to learn to get along.

Then I'd take all the money that we'd spend on this crap

And give it to the homeless for a warm place to nap.

Feed the starving children, they deserve to eat too

Oh yes, there's a lot of things that we could do.

If I had a wish

I know what I'd wish

If I had a wish

That wish would be

To make this world better for you and me.
