The Lyrics

Ed Teller once was friends with Dr. Robert
Oppenheimer: They both worked on atomic rockets.

Reagan bought it—grew into a Teller fan,
But he didn't understand:
Missile defense was a scam—a crock o' sh*t.

Ron plunked down some real big bucks; science mocked it:
Big plan to send up many blocking rockets.

Ron had lost it: The man had come to believe
That this pipe dream could succeed.
Raytheon started to feed, in Concord.

Sell, sell, sell the Star Wars line.
Patriots went 0 for 9 'gainst Scud rockets.

Now Bush is wasting wads of wealth to block out rockets.
Some see through this game of shells, and they knock it.

Block a rocket: It relies on bettor's luck,
Might as well cover and duck.
Ed's scams spurred Stan to make "Dr. Strangelove."

Sell, sell, sell the Star Wars line.
Shell, shell, shell, shell, shell game: blocking rockets.
