The Lyrics

Parody of the musical, "Fiddler On The Roof"*Fox News executive John Ellis, Dubya's first cousin, was the first network figure to declare Bush the winner in Florida, despite incomplete election returns.
(instrumental intro)

Dubya's a rich man.
And he hates the way we needle him for bein' really dumb.
All life long, rich buddies saved his bum,
'Cause he's such a wealthy man.

He never had to work hard,
But he hates the way we needle him for bein' really dumb.
Despite being filthy, filthy rich,
Tweedle-dee is needled 'cause he's dumb.

He stole Al Gore's White House with help from his cousin*,
And brother Jeb - what went down:
Dubya the Goof didn't have enough votes to show...
His Poppy's there, just in case he screws up,
And Dick Cheney actually wears his crown.
If Bush is "leading," nowhere's where we'll go!

He's working hard on tricks; this turkey just runs
And hides what we see and hear.
Squawking when we're protesting this man.
This right wing hack has struck down our rights,
And he rules this land while playin' on our fears.
No work, just play; for he's a wealthy man.

Dubya's a rich man.
And he hates the way we needle him for bein' really dumb.
All life long, rich buddies saved his bum,
'Cause he's such a wealthy man.

He never had to work hard,
But he hates the way we needle him for bein' really dumb.
Despite being filthy, filthy rich,
Tweedle-dee is needled 'cause he's dumb.

He sees his life as golden.
Privileged with a rich man's life, all his goodies given him.
Profits from oil deals, 'cause he is Bush Lite.
You'll see him putting on airs, and strutting like a peacock.
Boy! What a crappy mood he's in.
Screaming like a king with divine right.

'Cause he is rich, he gets away with the lack of brains,
And this demagogue will play.
Bush Baby will not beat his demise and fall,
Folks are cussing out the Enron crooks and Republicans.
Boot him out Election Day.
That would be the sweetest thing of all.

The ditto sheep bow to his crown, are too far gone to see.
They don't ask why we despise him - he's no Solomon the wise.
If you please, Dubya... pardon us, Dubya...
Solving problems would just cross George Dubya's eyes.

And it wouldn't make one bit of difference,
If he answers right or wrong.
When you're rich, you're cronies make you go...

Dubya's a rich man.
And he hates the way we needle him for bein' really dumb.
All life long, rich buddies saved his bum,
'Cause he's such a wealthy man.

He never had to work hard,
But he hates the way we needle him for bein' really dumb.
He's displayed his lyin' and his scam.
He feeds greed with power of Uncle Sam.
Helps Big Oil with their infernal plan:
Pipeline through Afghanistan!

(instrumental ending)
