"A Lot of Bombin' to Do"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

This song, while not the most popular from the show, is a long time favorite of mine. Even after September 11th. Now, can the "kids" agree on something? I ignored Armstrong's (and Hollywood's) cuts to retain the dialogue effect from the musical.
REPUBLICANS
There are rogues
A-runnin' some nations,
And I mean to bag me a few.
All those rogues
cause exasperations.
We've got a lot of bombin' to do.

On that day,
September 11th,
"Muslim" terrorists
stole airplanes we flew!
Though our "friends"
don't want to admit it,
There's such a lot of bombin' to do!

DEMOCRATS
You may say
the "Axis of Evil"
must be taught
a lesson or two.
Let us first
get Europe behind us!
Is there a lot of bombin' to do?

ALL
There's terror to fight,
budgets to write,
jobs to create.
Can't agree,
so let's debate!

(After debates takes place in the Senate and UN... and a war takes place in Iraq...)

REPUBLICANS
When Saddam
was planning destruction,
we were called to battle anew.
Now he's caught; the terror's uprooted;
there's still a lot of bombin' to do!

DEMOCRATS
Now we ask,
where are all those weapons?
In your heads,
or stashed in Peru?
You can't even capture Osama!
We've got a lot of votin' to do!

ALL
There's terror to fight,
budgets to write,
jobs to create.
What's the source
of all this hate?

REPUBLICANS
Kim Jung Il,
Iran's Ayatollahs,
Sy-ri-a:
they're targeting you!

ALL (some pointing at each other)
Can't stand by
and watch them destroy us!

REPUBLICANS (excited)
We've got a lot of bombin'

DEMOCRATS (frustrated)
Such a lot of bombin'...

ALL
What a lot of votin' to do!
