The Lyrics

What did you hear on the news today,
dear little friend of mine?
What did you hear on the news today,
dear little friend of mine?
I heard that Dubya has never told a lie.
I heard Iraqis seldom cry.
I heard that war will make us free.
That's what the TV said to me.
And that's what I heard on the news today.
That's what I heard on the news.

What did you hear on the news today,
dear little friend of mine?
What did you hear on the news today,
dear little friend of mine?
I heard Republicans are my friends.
I heard this war will never end.
I heard what they say is right all the time,
even if they have to make it up sometimes.
And that's what I heard on the news today.
That's what I heard on the news.

What did you hear on the news today,
dear little friend of mine?
What did you hear on the news today,
dear little friend of mine?
I heard our defense must be strong.
It's always right and never wrong.
Our wars are fought by the finest men,
and so we fight them again and again.
And that's what I heard on the news today.
That's what I heard on the news.

What did you hear on the news today,
dear little friend of mine?
What did you hear on the news today,
dear little friend of mine?
I heard that jobs are easy to find.
(Someone in Mexico just got mine.)
We brought democracy to Iraq,
and now we're gonna do the same for Iran.
And that's what I heard on the news today.
That's what I heard on the news.
That's what I heard on the news today.
That's what I heard on the news.
