The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

What his war's about... is oil, just oil.
Oil's the only thing that the Shrub just truly loves.
What his war's about... is oil, just oil.
Not just 'gainst Saddam, but with everyone.

Big Oil greed, Enron accountin'
Bush is countin,' his poll slide will make a climb.
Has delusions of grandeur, being World Boss.
Wants war so fast; world says it's a crime.

What his war's about... is oil, just oil.
Oil's the only thing that the Shrub just truly loves.
What his war's about... is oil, just oil.
Not just 'gainst Saddam, but with everyone.

Big Oil needs another fellow
To run Iraq and make future oil flow.
Poppy's son dreams of mad schemes; thinks he's divine.
We can't afford, not to let him know...

What his war's about... is oil, just oil.
Oil's the only thing that the Shrub just truly loves.
What his war's about... is oil, just oil.
Not just 'gainst Saddam, but with everyone.

Not just 'gainst Saddam, but with everyone.
