The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

War hawk words, sullen and so weird.
For war crimes, you are jeered.
Look and see:
The world will be... roasting you.

Why do bombs...
Fall down from the sky... on Iraq? Must you lie?
Look and see:
The world will be... roasting you...

Nowadays, the world has sworn
To change things for the better.
They will work for peace, not hate; but you refuse.
Bush, your sickening foreign affairs
Has stolen our rights and war time's a ruse.

Say goodbye to your stolen crown.
In '04, you'll go down.
Look and see:
Voters will be... roasting you.

Look and see:
Voters will be... roasting you.

Look and see:
Voters will be... roasting you.

(instrumental break)

Nowadays, the world has sworn
To change things for the better.
They will work for peace, not hate; but you refuse.
Bush, your sickening foreign affairs
Has stolen our rights and war time's a ruse.

Say goodbye to your stolen crown.
In '04, you'll go down.
Look and see:
Voters will be... roasting you.

Look and see:
Voters will be... roasting you.

Look and see:
Voters will be...
Roasting you.

(instrumental break)

Duh... Duh-buh-ya...
Roasting you...

Duh... Duh-buh-ya...
Roasting you...

(repeat last two lines and fade)
