The Lyrics

Satire about beleagered White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan, facing an increasingly hostile and unconvinced press corps while trying to spin the Karl Rove Treasongate scandal
(instrumental intro)

Having fits, said again, "Rove did nothing bad."
Press knows it's been had.
That's his ploy.

Yellow-cake from Niger to Baghdad?
Lied more than a tad!
Bush war ploy.

Press conference on TV, more than slight flubs...
"Rove's my source," Matt Cooper's words show.
White House smear; on reporters, used fear.
War bluster, right wing radio.
Hiding Rove's crime, we're watching Scotty's woe.

Making a case for war to bomb Iraq...
Bombs awe and shock.
Bush war ploy.

Bush White House rapidly losing stock,
'Cause of laws they mocked.
Bush war ploy.

In five short years,
Surplus gone, to pay the richest.
On Wilson, declared war; Plame scandal will grow
Saddam Hussein removed for oil gain.
McClellan pony show;
And he's sitting there whining...
Let's watch Scotty's woe.

Rode in on Daddy's shoulders; Shrub is brain-dead.
World filled with dread.
Bush war ploy.

Press won't carry Bush's water; won't have stories read
Innocence, Rove pled
That's his ploy.

Rove Treasongate drama,
Bush hit by a perfect storm.
Well, there goes his place...
The place where his history will go.
But Scott will say, "Let's cheer."
Press flaying all his errors and spin to show...

Bush ain't God.
Watching Scotty's woe.
Bush ain't God.
Watching Scotty's woe.
