The Lyrics

Satire about indicted Chief of Staff to Vice President Dick "Big Time" Cheney, Irving Lewis "Scooter" Libby, who has since resigned, and is scheduled for arraignment
(instrumental intro)

He got caught at double-talking; met defeat.
(Gone is Scooter Libby, Libby's gone, he did scoot)
Patrick Fitzgerald had enough of deceit.
(Gone is Scooter Libby, Libby's gone, he did scoot)

He talked false (talked false)
To make war (to make war).
He talked false to make war.
At Joe Wilson, he was sore.

Well, Libby blew it, outing Plame so spitefully.
(Gone is Scooter Libby, Libby's gone, he did scoot)
Did what he planned, no disaster did he see.
(Gone is Scooter Libby, Libby's gone, he did scoot)

Bush talked on (talked on)
To make war (make war)
Bush talked on to make war.
"Get Joe Wilson!" Libby swore.

They... wanted war since installing the Shrub.
Yes, they did; big lies were told 'bout everything
By Scooter's neocon club.

His arraignment will not be a happy day.
(Gone is Scooter Libby, Libby's gone, he did scoot)
We're so happy that the Bush regime will pay.
(Gone is Scooter Libby, Libby's gone, he did scoot)

He's cursed (he's cursed)
He's swine (he's swine)
He's cursed, he's swine.
Goin' to jail for his crime.

They... wanted war since installing the Shrub.
Yes, they did; big lies were told 'bout everything
By Scooter's neocon club.

His arraignment will not be a happy day.
(Gone is Scooter Libby, Libby's gone, he did scoot)
We're so happy that the Bush regime will pay
(Gone is Scooter Libby, Libby's gone, he did scoot)

He's cursed (he's cursed)
He's swine (he's swine)
He's cursed, he's swine.
Goin' to jail for his crime.

Gone is Scooter Libby, Libby's gone, he did scoot
Scooter Libby, Libby's gone, he did scoot.
Scooter Libby, Libby's gone, he did scoot.
Scooter Libby, Libby's gone, he did scoot.
