Black Eyed Peas have doctored the lyrics to their new release HEY MAMA to avoid upsetting fans troubled by the war in Iraq.

The group decided not to release the track as it appears on their hit album ELEPHUNK because it makes reference to "dropping bombs" in the Middle East.

The line, "We multiply like we mathmatice, and then drop bombs like we in the Middle East" has been changed to, "We multiply like we mathmatice, and then drop bombs 'cause you're shakin' to the beat."
