The Lyrics

cheney, please tell us, oh?
why you shot Harry so?
his face you blew apart oh please..
cheney, please kill this guy
and stop all business ties,
why did you never shoot for knees?

now I don't mean to question you, but it's not denied
that facts about this case you have tried to hide
so why'd you shoot this guy? are you in a fix?
please come clean for me.. oh

cheney, please tell us, oh?
why you shot Harry so?
his face you blew apart oh please..
cheney, please kill this guy
and stop all business ties,
why did you never shoot for knees?

now, cheney, did you do it? did you think carefully
to kill a lawyer's good for popularity?
and now within the press corps they will try to reveal
the truth, we'll never see so....

cheney, please tell us, oh?
why you shot Harry so?
his face you blew apart oh please..
cheney, please kill this guy
and stop all business ties,
why did you never shoot for knees?

Funny that John Barry should mention Idaho, 'cause Dick Cheney is a political hot potato! And this parody is also hot stuff. You might even say it's smokin' like Cheney's gun.
