The Lyrics

Inspired by the ineptness of FEMA Director Brown
Mr. Brown you're treading in hot water
Folks inept as you are hard to bare
But we're glad
Someone's replaced you now
We've made it clear enough
In language not too kind

They want to return you to D.C. now
It's too late, we know you're still to blame
Things won't change
You'll still be clueless now
You've made it clear enough
And you won't change our mind

Talking about
Helping out the crowd, well
They're sickened of
All your lies are you proud?

Now we find you have no job experience
Even though Bush says you're doing fine
What a con
You fooled him from the start
An inept appointee
Like you's not hard to find

Talking about
Helping out the crowd, well
They're sickened of
All your lies are... you proud?

Mr. Brown you're treading in hot water
Mr. Brown you left them without water
Mr. Brown you should have gave them water
Mr. Brown you're treading in hot water

Well, maybe he wouldn't be in HOT water if the people of New Orleans weren't in COLD water... and the ones who are left have NO hot water. How long before Georgie gives him the Medal of Freedom, like he gave to Paul Bremer? (Not that I'm the first to think of that.) Good job on this, except that the word to describe Brown's performance is not "ineptness," it's "ineptitude." In other words, you're overqualified to work in the Bush Maladministration.

Very good parody except for the "should have gave."

Thanks for the comments -- yeah, I realized "should have gave" was grammatically incorrect a little too late (I should have given it a closer look). ;-) Oh well! And the latest I heard on Brown (although I didn't listen to the news much today) was that he has no idea why he was sent to D.C. I would love to add that to another verse! Thanks again for the comments and votes. Jamie
