The Lyrics

Bush laughably claimed a "mandate" in 2000, when 5 members of the Supreme Court stopped the Florida vote recount and appointed him president. Is it surprising, then, that after eking out the narrowest margin of election victory since Woodrow Wilson, and having a record number of Americans (51 million) vote AGAINST him, that Bush again claims a "mandate" for his neo-con/ultra-right wing policies?
(instrumental introduction)

This November breathed new life
In the Clown and Dick, his vice.
Shadowy new plans; new Mideast war window.
Lyin' from the Right.
The Right Wing's just

Ignoring what all others say.
(Crabby people have their way.)
Cooking up their lies; war-based ephemery.
Their coup's now realized.
Such crap they now claim; they've

No mandate...
To kill, maim, and enslave, while taking
Our own rights here away.
No mandate...
To dismiss allies, drop bombs, while slaking
Corporate greed all the way.
No mandate!

(short instrumental break)

They're standing, waiting for End Time.
They squawk away; think Shrub is fine.
Fu**ed up is our world; Iraq kills climbing.
Such weirdness of the mind, that Shrub is defining.

No mandate...
To kill, maim, and enslave, while taking
Our own rights here away.
No mandate...
To dismiss allies, drop bombs, while slaking
Corporate greed all the way.
No mandate!

(instrumental break)

War's the Right Wing's dream.
Troop families mourning.
Halliburton sleaze.
War pain appalling...

No mandate...
To kill, maim, and enslave, while taking
Our own rights here away.
No mandate...
To dismiss allies, drop bombs, while slaking
Corporate greed all the way.
No mandate!

No mandate...
To kill, maim, and enslave, while taking
Our own rights here away.
No mandate...
To dismiss allies, drop bombs, while slaking...

Corporate greed, too!

(instrumental fade)
