The Lyrics

The saga of embattled Karl Rove, also known as Bush's Brain and Turd Blossom (Dubya's own nickname for him), and the Plame Affair, for which Rove has stonewalled for nearly 2 years
(instrumental intro)

His name is Dubya - pissed off the whole world.
Claimed, "Yellowcake is everywhere, so we must bomb Saddam's lair!"
Lies fabricated, bullsh*t and ca-ca...
And while he tried to be the czar, Karl always went too far.
Rove's boss would start a war, and Rove was keeping score,
While slinging dung to provide Bush cover.
What is Rove there for?

Karl Rove, yeah! (Rove!) Rove propaganda (propaganda),
Reads like Downing Street memoranda (lies)...
Karl Rove, yeah! Rove propaganda...
Misused "compassion," for Bush, Rove refashioned...
A makeover... for "Hero" Shrub.
(Rove, yeah... Rove propaganda...)

Plame's name was leaked, so... Rove could remind us
Warmonger Shrub's foreign affairs needed liars just like Blair.
Law was diminished, when Rove ran over...
Joe Wilson; revenge went too far, Rove has failed to shield his czar.
Soon verbal punches flew, from press to Bush's crew.
Iraqi blood and a smoking gun plot; people now see through...

Karl Rove, yeah! (Rove!) Rove propaganda (propaganda),
Reads like Downing Street memoranda (lies)...
Karl Rove, yeah! Rove propaganda...
Misused "compassion," for Bush, Rove refashioned...
A makeover... No "Hero," Shrub...

Rove, yeah... Rove propaganda...
Rove propaganda...
Rove propaganda...
Rove propaganda...
Misused "compassion," Bush was refashioned...

(instrumental break)

The name of Dubya... hated by whole world.
He has a few more years to go, as a lame duck full of woe.
Turd Blossom hissed, "No!" - denied involvement.
But the big mess he made was aired;
Tarred and feathered, Rove's affair.
Though Rove was Bush's mind, we think hate made him blind.
Rove hates the truth; propping up a phony.
Jail him and his kind.

Ban Karl Rove, yeah! (Rove!) Rove propaganda (propaganda)...
Reads like Downing Street memoranda (lies)...
Karl Rove, yeah! Rove propaganda...
Misused "compassion," for Bush, Rove refashioned...
A makeover... Downfall for Shrub...

Downfall for Shrub...
Downfall for Shrub...
Downfall for Shrub...

(repeat last line and fade)
