The Lyrics

Satire about how Bush, Rummy, and his Big Business cronies have looted our national treasury
(instrumental intro)

Imaginary budget, since Shrub stole his crown.
Since 9/11, Bush has had his way.
Thrown around
For his spending pleasure:
Star Wars fantasy.
Bush donors dared their wildest schemes for free.
Imaginary budget - go bust anytime.
Imaginary budget, oh yeah...

Bush unbalanced the budget.
Unreal was his deal.
He bankrupted the nation - at it still.
Thieves in our nation now steal.
Imaginary budget... imaginary budget...
Gold mine owned by crime.

(instrumental break)

Imaginary budget assumes things are for free.
Corporate welfare.
Shrub's always there when they need satisfaction guaranteed.
Imaginary budget... imaginary budget...
Gold mine owned by crime.
Shrub's imaginary budget.
Gold mine owned by crime.

(instrumental ending)
