The Lyrics

Satire about retired general Jay Garner, chosen without public hearings by Bush to be the viceroy of post-Saddam Iraq
(instrumental intro)

War hawk of right wing bent,
Pal of Bush the pResident.
Star Wars, his former pet.
Iraq prize, his biggest yet.
Now hear: Bush says there is no room, 'cause the
U.N.'s gonna get the broom.
Garner plans to be the proxy
King of Iraq.

Iraq czar's pet refrain:
"Military is the main
Way to solve all issues."
Neo-cons all share such views.
Warhawk old fogies still around;
Served Bush Daddy, duty-bound.
Garner plans to be the proxy
King of Iraq.

Iraq war was engineered to numb your brain.
War killed children, all done in our names;
"Collateral damage" in every town.
Bush bombed Iraq; their oil's been hocked; they're colony-bound.

War hawk of right wing bent,
Pal of Bush the pResident.
Star Wars, his former pet.
Iraq prize, his biggest yet.
Now hear: Bush says there is no room, 'cause the
U.N.'s gonna get the broom.
Garner plans to be the proxy
King of Iraq.

Iraq war was engineered to numb your brain.
War killed children, all done in our names;
"Collateral damage" in every town.
Bush bombed Iraq; their oil's been hocked; they're colony-bound.

War hawk of right wing bent,
Pal of Bush the pResident.
Star Wars, his former pet.
Iraq prize, his biggest yet.
Now hear: Bush says there is no room, 'cause the
U.N.'s gonna get the broom.
Garner plans to be the proxy
King of Iraq...
King of Iraq...
King of Iraq...
