The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

The G.O.P. is now imploding
Loud mouths blaring, pundits goading
For oil, they would kill, but we'll be voting
Against their oil war, and their endless scapegoating
Their laws left all our rivers with pollution floating
And they get peeved over and over and over to no end
But the G.O.P. is on the eve of destruction

They don't understand what we're trying to say
They just play on fear, but they are going to pay
Failed president is Bush, but he's running away
From scandals these years past, and he's still a knave
No answers have they found, boy, they're running scared, you know
And they get peeved over and over and over to no end
But the G.O.P. is on the eve of destruction

Yeah, they are so bad at legislating
They're sitting there in Congress waiting
They can't stand the truth or real education
Their reps and senators don't pass legislation
They're doing their best to divide the nation
And they get peeved over and over and over to no end
But the G.O.P. is on the eve of destruction

Fomenting more hate, Roy Moore in Alabama
Repugs screw around, using Scandal-O-Rama
Their lost sheep bleat, and they're too dazed to face
When they get burned in the 2004 race
"Quagmire!" screams the papers; weapons, there is no trace
So they get peeved over and over and over to no end
But the G.O.P. is on the eve of destruction
