The Lyrics

Writing a parody to "Whisky Bar" about the capricious George Steinbrenner made me think of another bossy, careless George...
Oh, show George the way to the next Mid-East War.
Oh, don’t ask why. Oh, don’t ask why.
Show George the way to the next Mid-East War.
Oh, don’t ask why. Oh, don’t ask why.
What if George should find the next Mid-East War?
I tell you, more will die.
I tell you, more will die.
I tell you, I tell you, I tell you more will die!

Oh, sunset o’er the White House!
He soon must say goodbye.
We’ll lose our good ol’ Georgie,
And we’ll rejoice then, oh, you know why!
Oh, sunset o’er the White House!
He soon must say goodbye!
We’ll lose our good ol’ Georgie,
And we’ll thank God then, oh, you know why!

Oh, show George the way to the next wiretap.
Oh, don’t ask why. Oh, don’t ask why.
Show George the way to the next wiretap.
Oh, don’t ask why. Oh, don’t ask why.
What if George should find the next wiretap?
Dissenters then must fry.
Dissenters then must fry.
Dissenters, dissenters, dissenters then must fry!

(short instrumental break—military marching band, bombs, screams of torture)

Oh, sunset o’er the White House!
He soon must say goodbye!
We’ll lose our dear ol’ Georgie,
And we’ll thank God then, oh, you know why!
I know, I know...Michael Pacholek beat me to it!
Crawford, Texas Song (Risky War)
but I swear I wrote my first draft before I read his spoof!
