The Lyrics

There are certainly terrorists among the hundreds detained in Guantanimo Bay. And there are certainly innocent people. Sort them out and have trials already. This America I can look at with admiration doesn't warehouse people indefinitely without bringing charges against them or providing them representation--even 'enemy combatants'. That's the trademark of hideously brutal third-world regimes. This narrator of this song is George W. Bush because, despite some suggestions to the contrary, he's running the whole show.By the way, I was 12 miles from ground zero when 9/11 happened, and I can honestly say I'm more worried about the permanent embarrassment that will be suffered by this country because of it's human rights violations than any prospective terrorist attack. (The Muslim-Jew line here is just a statement of fact and not meant to have subjective implications, for I'm a Jew myself. Also, the adjective 'Christian' here only applies to those who use the Bible to justify stripping human beings of their dignity.) I was always taught as both a Jew and American that we're supposed to be better than this. (I'll try to lighten up for my next parody.)
And now, no end is near;
Come see my reputation hurtin'
In fact, I prey on fear,
Won't state their case, though I'm quite certain.

They've* called the charges bull.
Unraveled each and every lie way;
Yet there, yet there they sit:
Guan-tan-i-mo Bay.

I chose the not-so-few;
And put those men into detention
I did what I wanted to
And in the end I'll get my pension.

A planned retarded course;
I do 'interrogation' my way,
And so, and so they sit
Guan-tan-i-mo Bay

Yes, there were crimes, and blood is due
Muslims all, and not a single Jew.
But through it all, I've feigned there's doubt,
I've locked them up, won't let 'em out.
I hold their balls and love it all;
Guan-tan-i-mo Bay

Can't hang those bastards high
I'll be accused of rights abusing.
And now, as fears subside,
I find it all so amusing.

Can't think-- but did all that;
And may I say - not in a wry way,
Oh no, they can't leave,
Guan-tan-i-mo Bay.

For is it a man, who lets them rot?
Puts on himself this moral blot?
Does "Christian" things he truly feels:
The Bible's world of double-deals
The record shows not if they're foes -
Guan-tan-i-mo Bay!

I feel as though the "king" or Sinatra could do this parody justice as they are not available of our present ruler sing churns my gut and runs chills up my spine. Not to worry, my guts been churning accompanied by convulsion causing chills since the 2000 election. Keep up the great work. I need to learn to laugh at these matters. I'll be checking back daily for at least the next four years.
