WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW IS LOVE, SWEET, LOVE ENFORCED AT GUNPOINT IF NECCESSARY

He's never written a word before, but like Vanna White and the Piano Man before him, Burt Bacharach has found his voice, writing his debut lyric to protest against the Iraq War:

"You could say 'how does a guy who has written love songs his entire life suddenly decide to rock the boat?'" he said.

"I thought that was very important because I couldn't have somebody else write these lyrics."

He added: "I never was a political person in my life. I wrote songs during Vietnam, not about Vietnam. I was just writing love songs. Leading my own life in my own insulated world."
