The Lyrics

Just three months before Election Day
At the G.O.P.'s loud convention
Dubya's old man, so expectedly
Told his son: "Just be stoic, and grin."

He said, "Son, can you bring back the memory?
I once ruled, but lost to my foes.
Though revenge would be sweet, it could not compete
To pull strings; lead the younger man's nose"

Chorus:
Duh, duh, Dubya...
Duh, duh, Dubya...
They sing:"Be strong, you're the Oil Man
Help us win for the Right
Or we're all going to feud, and lose miserably
If the White House is lost, out of sight!"

Now Newt went too far, thought he was divine
And his Contract just stinks, you see
Despite mirrors and smoke, we knew he was a joke
In Congress is where he'd rather be

The Shrub thinks he's coasting to victory
He thinks money can win him this race
Ronald Reagan was once just a movie star
Now the Frat Boy wants to take his place

Chorus:
Duh, duh, Dubya...
Duh, duh, Dubya...
They sing:"Be strong, you're the Oil Man
Help us win for the Right
Or we're all going to feud, and lose miserably
If the White House is lost, out of sight!"

Dick Cheney's a Big Oil lobbyist
With a right wing loon for a wife
He makes money like crazy, the details are hazy
But he wasn't rich in his past life

Watch the way that they're practicing politics
As they make you think they have atoned
Yet, they fear they'll be back in the wilderness
Through impeachment, they got themselves stoned

Chorus:
Duh, duh, Dubya....
Duh, duh, Dubya....
They sing: "Be strong,you're the Oil Man
Help us win for the Right
Or we're all going to feud, and lose miserably
If the White House is lost, out of sight!"

Well, they'll get pretty loud for Election Day
By the low road, they'll begin to pile
'Cause they know victory is so hard to foresee
They lack substance, but they sure got style

And the Oil Man sounds like an imbecile
And this phony is selling us fear
Did they search very far for this man below par?
With their man, Bush, they might disappear

Chorus:
Duh, duh, Dubya....
Duh, duh, Dubya....
They sing: "Be strong, you're the Oil Man
Help us win for the Right
Or we're all going to feud,and lose miserably
If the White House is lost, out of sight!"
