The Lyrics

Waggin' the Dog

Damn Iraq!
Polls go slack.
Need to find something that distracts.
My nose grows and grows.
Gotta get voters' minds off my woes.

Waggin' the dog
I'm just waggin' the dog.
I go to Rove and chew itó
He shows me how to wag the dog.

Got Monica to kiss my vent
Told the people I never spent.
Sent jets high, up in the sky. . .
Half-assed bombing run to cloud folks' eyes.

Waggin' the dog
I'm just waggin' the dog.
I'm smart, so myself I'll do it.
She blows me, so I'll wag the dog.

When things do not go so well
Politicians will go
To any lengths to try to sell
False stories to distract ourselves.

Waggin' the dog;
They're just waggin' the dog.
Although we mostly see through it,
They continue to wag the dog.
