The Lyrics

In honor of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, soon to be resigning to "pursue other projects" or "spend time with his family."
Can you hear the drums Alberto?
Such a shame to you have to tell a bold faced lie like this
Will you testify Alberto?
You were lying to yourself and softly hoping you'd go far
I could see the scandal come
Yet deep inside your walls you were a shining star

There is justice now Alberto
Every hour brings you closer to accountability
Are you now afraid Alberto?
You were young and arrogant and yes you were prepared to lie
And I'm not ashamed to say
The sound of people being tortured made me cry

There was something in the way you lied
It wasn't right, Alberto
There was something you forgot you see
Legality, Alberto
Though you never thought that you could lose
There's no regret
If you had to do the same again
You would, my friend, Alberto

Now you'll go away Alberto
And for many years you'll write a book and cross this land
Can you hear the drums Alberto?
Do you still recall the fateful night your job turned partisan?
I can see it in your eyes
How proud you were to sit at George Bush's right hand

There was something in the way you lied
It wasn't right, Alberto
There was something you forgot you see
Legality, Alberto
Though you never thought that you could lose
There's no regret
If you had to do the same again
You would, my friend, Alberto

There was something in the way you lied
It wasn't right, Alberto
There was something you forgot you see
Legality, Alberto
Though you never thought that you could lose
There's no regret
If you had to do the same again
You would, my friend, Alberto
Yes, if you had to do the same again
You would my friend, Alberto

Well said! 5s

And may he be sentenced to 5 years in one of his own prisons, with the Geneva Convention conveniently forgotten. The only objection I have is with the closing comment. It should be "All right-wingers absurd!" As Sir Elton would say, "It's a sad, sad situation, and it's getting more and more absurd."
