The Lyrics

Satire inspired by Michael Moore's charge that George Dubya Bush was a deserter - Dubya avoided the Vietnam War after Poppy Bush pulled strings and got him training as a pilot for an obsolete aircraft, took time off to help the political campaign of a friend of his father, and then failed to report in 1972 to complete his service in the Texas Air National Guard... in other words, Absent Without Leave (AWOL).
(instrumental intro)

Vietnam skipped; flew Air Guard aeroplanes;
Bush then took time off to help campaign.
Dubya was gone, many months too long.
Now Bush Baby is called a deserter.

We don't care how much money he's gonna spend.
Land we'll get back; not Bush Baby again.
Dubya begone; nine months is too long.
Now Bush Baby is called a deserter.

What a joke that a deserter could be put in charge of starting a war.
In our history, we have never first attacked; til Bush Baby got sore.
End his craze, yeah...

Vietnam skipped; flew Air Guard aeroplanes.
Bush then took time off to help campaign.
Dubya was gone, many months too long.
Now Bush Baby is called a deserter.

What a joke that a deserter could be put in charge of starting a war.
In our history, we have never first attacked, 'til Bush Baby got sore.
End his craze, yeah...

Vietnam skipped; flew Air Guard aeroplanes.
Bush then took time off to help campaign.
Dubya was gone, many months too long.
Now Bush Baby is called a deserter...
Now Bush Baby is called a deserter...
Now Bush Baby is called a deserter...

(instrumental fade)
