The Lyrics

Dear Mister Idiot in the White House
You flushed the country down the john
Our economy is doing crappy
Create jobs, use tax cuts. Make it snappy

You are the one who got us in this mess
Manipulating our allies' fears
Weapons of mass destruction they have not been found
We will be in Iraq for some years.

Dear Mister Idiot in the White House
You flushed the country down the john
Our economy is doing crappy
Create jobs, use tax cuts. Make it snappy

Dear Mister Idiot in the White House
You flushed the country down the john
Our economy is doing crappy
Create jobs, use tax cuts. Make it snappy

You are the one who got us in this mess
Manipulating our allies' fears
Weapons of mass destruction they have not been found
We will be in Iraq for some years.

Tim, you missed the pacing on this one by an observable measure. I didn't vote here. Although the "Our economy is doing crappy" lines have the right number of syllables as "Do anything, take us out of this gloom" of the OS you just can't match up because 'economy', with those 4 syllables makes it impossible to sing well...you would have to leave off the last syllable because the OS has a pause space after the 4th syllable "Do anything" it could ALMOST work if you left out "Our"...not optimal, but better...I wouldn't tell you not to play in Traffic, but maybe take a "brush-up" driving course first...
