Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Satire about Bush's craven November 2003 state visit to the United Kingdom, which drew over 200,000 protestors, causing Bush to avoid speaking to Parliament or hostile audiences
"Madman!" their cries greet.
They chant at W.
Ill will, so strong, it won't end.
Our head man, the Shrub, booed again.

Shrub's gone to England... to get away
From Iraqi breaches... war plans astray.
Got tarred, no war glory... war's end must now wait.
Brits tell him...

"Madman!" their cries greet.
They chant at W.
Ill will, so strong, it won't end.
Our head man, the Shrub, booed again.

Bush fears the change coming;
Chill wind which now blows.
How's this knave now faring?
In Iraq, deaths rose.

Bush chooses to string out.
Oil for blood can't be bad.
The neocons' heaven:
Through blood, can be had.
Brits tell him...

"Madman!" their cries greet.
They chant at W.
Ill will, so strong, it won't end.
Our head man, the Shrub, booed again.

Our head man, the Shrub, booed... again.
Again...

(instrumental ending)
