"That Lying Shrub"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

this one's for Will Tong...
that tiny shrub, shrub, that lying shrub..

lied about the weapons there,
said saddam had all this might
instability's now there,
and his info isn't right

I don't think its very funny,
no I don't you lying shrub
you lying shrub
shrub, you lying shrub,

send the coalition, into there,
cause he says he needed to
now I think the things he says
are a lot of doctored poo
I don't think it's very funny,
no I don't you lying shrub,
you lying shrub
shrub,
you lying shrub

say you have told me lots of lies and I'll be satisfied,
get the men and women out of there,
and to safety on this side
I don't think it's very funny,
no I don't you lying shrub,
you lying shrub
shrub,
you lying shrub

hey pat, actually this was a test..notice there isn't the 1-1-1 gremlin for this?? this proves that the gremlin I have is a leftie.. and as long as I'm not slamming the left, ( which I intend to do more than ever as the election primaries and debates start) I don't get 1-1-1 spammed for low total votes.. caught............and I knew it all along..

That narrows the field. We know who it is not. That just leaves a handful of lefties to scrutinize.

Pat is not a southpaw, this much I know. I never thought it was her either. I have maybe three that I have in mind. But there is always that red herring.

Looks like the 1's gremlin is trying to fake you out. Too little too late.

It's not me. I think there's only one parody out of thousands that I ever gave straight ones, and it wasn't one of Malcolm's. And when I slam one of the regulars, I usually admit it in my comment. As for this one, it's OK, not great, not bad.

Voting less than 3's isn't worth my time. As far as comments, I try to be positive.
