The Lyrics

Satire based upon news reports leaked secret memos written in 2002 by White House lawyers that looked for excuses to ignore the Geneva Conventions and international law in order to avoid prosecution for war crimes and allow President Bush to do whatever he wants, including the condoning of torture around the world in his gulag of secret prisons
(instrumental intro)

Prisoner porn, made just as a "gag."
Grunts said *M.I. made them do.
But their commands came straight from the Chief.
Press points the scandal at W.

(Bush sings:)
"It ain't me! It ain't me! I ain't to blame for what's done... done!
It ain't me! It ain't me! I'm not the Torturing One, no...!"

Prisoner porn, condoned by command.
Guards couldn't help themselves, no.
All these attacks planned, "evening the score."
War's gone lousy; looks like Rummy failed, yes...

(Bush sings:)
"It ain't me! It ain't me! I ain't to blame for what's done... done!
It ain't me! It ain't me! I'm not the Torturing One, no...!"

(instrumental break)

The press won't parrot Czar's addled lies
'Bout what we're fightin' for, for...
But do not ask him, "Why shouldn't Iraq live?"
'Cause his only answer's "War! War! War! War!

"It ain't me! It ain't me! It's what the military's done... done!
It ain't me! It ain't me! I'm not the Torturing One, no...!
It ain't me! It ain't me! I'm not the Torturing One, no...!
It ain't me! It ain't me! I'm not the Torturing One, no...!"

(repeat final line of refrain and fade)

[*M.I. = Military Intelligence]
