In South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, Satan begins having his doubts about Saddam Hussein, and decides not to bring him to Earth. In an almost desperate attempt at winning Satan back, Hussein sings this song to him, hoping he'd change his mind. During the song, Satan is quickly enamored by Saddam, and takes him back as his lover.
Some people say that I'm a bad guy
They may be right, they may be right.
But its not as if I don't try
I just fuck up. Try as I might.
But I can change, I can change.
I can learn to keep my promises, I swear it.
I'll open up my heart and I will share it.
Any minute now I will be born again.
Yes I can change, I can change.
I know I've been a dirty little bastard.
I like to kill, I like to maim, yes, I'm insane, but it's okay 'cause I can change.
Its not my fault that I'm so evil
It's society, society.
You see, my parents were sometimes abusive
And it made a prick of me.
But I can change, I can change!
I can learn to keep my promises, I know it!
I'll open up my heart and I will show it...
Any minute now I will be born again!
But what if you never change?
What if you remain a sandy little butthole?
Hey Satan! Don't be such a twit.
Mother Teresa won't have shit
Just watch, just watch me change here I go I'm changing!!!
