I think it's "Feel like I'm fixin' to die rag".

    Come on mothers, throughout the land,
    Send your boys off to get Saddam.
    Come on fathers, don't hesitate:
    Send your sons off before it's too late.
    Be the first one on your block
      To have your boy come home in a box.

(From a mildly updated version I composed about 7 years ago, which
tragically seems to be pertinent again.)
