The Lyrics

As sung by Emperor Dubya to his dwindling crowd of supporters, while desperately trying to keep U.S. voters distracted from his incompetence and scandals by advocating more war with a new massive bombing raid on Iraq:
(instrumental intro)

Iraq gets bombed, for distraction.
Iraq gets bombed, for distraction.
Folks will die... folks will die... folks will die... folks will die...
Iraq gets bombed... (guitar riff)
Iraq gets bombed... (guitar riff)

I'm connivin' for more war,
Which I'd planned 'cause I'm an oil whore.
I'm selling you war, more war,
Based on some useless information
Designed to save my administration

Iraq gets bombed... (guitar riff)
Iraq gets bombed... (guitar riff)
Go, go, go, go!
Hey, hey, hey!
Let's bomb today!

Iraq gets bombed, for distraction.
Iraq gets bombed, for distraction.
Folks will die... folks will die... folks will die... folks will die...
Iraq gets bombed... (guitar riff)
Iraq gets bombed... (guitar riff)

What you're watchin' on TV:
Propaganda oh-so-stealthy, but facts are irking me.
And I've hidden my plans with mirrors and smoke.
I've gutted democracy.

Iraq gets bombed... (guitar riff)
Iraq gets bombed... (guitar riff)
Go, go, go, go!
Hey, hey, hey!
Let's bomb today!

Iraq gets bombed, for distraction.
Iraq gets bombed, for distraction.
Folks will die... folks will die... folks will die... folks will die...
Iraq gets bombed... (guitar riff)
Iraq gets bombed... (guitar riff)

I'm despised now around the world,
People boo and hiss, and I have to scat
While I'm hidin' like a squirrel, Rove tells me,
"Sir, you'll need a comeback, or you'll look weak,
'Cause your polls are on a losing streak."

Iraq gets bombed... (guitar riff)
Iraq gets bombed... (guitar riff)
Go, go, go, go!
Hey, hey, hey!
Let's bomb today!

Iraq gets bombed, for distraction.
Iraq gets bombed, for distraction.
Folks will die... folks will die... folks will die... folks will die...
Iraq gets bombed... (guitar riff)
Iraq gets bombed... (guitar riff)

Bombed for distraction...
Bombed for distraction...
