The Lyrics

Satire about Halliburton, the oil services company formerly headed by Vice President Dick Cheney, now reaping billions in no-bid contracts to "reconstruct" Iraq's infrastructure destroyed by Bush-Cheney's illegal war
(instrumental intro)

Halliburton: gold mine;
Cheney's crown, crown, crown.
Halliburton: gold mine;
Stooped to shaking us down.

Halliburton: gold mine;
Cheney's crown, crown, crown.
Halliburton: gold mine;
Stooped to shaking us down.

In Iraq, troops are mourning
All their dead who are gone.
Shrub should be fired.
How long can war go on?

Halliburton: gold mine;
Cheney's crown, crown, crown.
Halliburton: gold mine;
Stooped to shaking us down.

Halliburton: gold mine;
Cheney's crown, crown, crown.
Halliburton: gold mine;
Stooped to shaking us down.

(instrumental break)

Halliburton: gold mine;
Cheney's crown, crown, crown.
Halliburton: gold mine;
Stooped to shaking us down.

Halliburton: gold mine;
Cheney's crown, crown, crown.
Halliburton: gold mine;
Stooped to shaking us down.

Bush the jerk ignored warnings:
War, his goal, can't be won.
With Halliburton on the ground,
His qWagmire now has to be spun.

Halliburton: gold mine;
Cheney's crown, crown, crown.
Halliburton: gold mine;
Stooped to shaking us down.

Halliburton: gold mine;
Cheney's crown, crown, crown.
Halliburton: gold mine;
Stooped to shaking us down.

(instrumental break)

(Spoken:) Bush should be fired; how long can war go on?

(instrumental fade)
