The Lyrics

The Bush in our Rose Garden
slow like snail, that's what he is.
The Bush in our Rose Garden
slow like snail, that's what he is.
First there is a crisis
then there is no crisis
then there is.

Can't get things right in Iraq
and we can't get our old jobs back.
Can't get things right in Iraq
and we can't get our old jobs back.
First there is a crisis
then there is no crisis
then there is.

Denny Hastert!
Denny Hastert!
Denny Hastert!
He calls your name!

He wants Social Security
imprivatized to death
Capitol Hill-side.

Oh, my, my, my.

The Bush in our Rose Garden
slow like snail, that's what he is.
The Bush in our Rose Garden
slow like snail, that's what he is.

Can't get things right in Iraq
and we can't get our old jobs back.
Can't get things right in Iraq
and we can't get our old jobs back.

First there is a crisis
then there is no crisis
then there is.
First there is a crisis
then there is no crisis
then there is.
First there is a crisis
then there is no crisis
then there is.
First there is a crisis
then there is no crisis
then there is.

Very good, Mike. "Quick, hurry and support our plan!! We'll be out of Social Security... in like 40-something years." First, there isn't much to worry about. Then there is?

one of the snail's functions is to consume dead material from a garden--sure was some dead stuff to be tended to when Bush first came into the garden--thumbs up, George

In case you haven't been paying attention, Royce, there's been a whole lot MORE dead stuff since Georgie came in. Some of it he directly caused for no good reason, some of it he simply allowed to happen through his own incompetence. If you doubt this, check out the corner of Church & Vesey in Lower Manhattan. That is Bush's monument.
