The Lyrics

Guy DiRito (whatever happened to him?) did something like this, but that was back in November 2003, and it had nothing to do with Dick (Moldfinger) Cheney.
(I shot the lawyer!)
But I did not go to Vietnam.
(I shot the lawyer!)
But invaded Iraq with my boy who's dumb.

All around that Texas ranch town
the media wants to track me down.
They want to get a hold of me
and say "Guy got shot by Cheney!"
Yeah, got shot by the old VP!
But I say...

(I shot the lawyer!)
But in last war I got five-deferred.
(I shot the lawyer!)
Sending other men to die's what I've preferred.

Liberal media's always hated me.
For what, I don't know.
Every time I make another million bucks
they say, "Give it to poor people."
They say, "Give it to poor people."
But I say...

(I shot the lawyer!)
But I swear it was in self-defense!
(I shot the lawyer!)
Last throes for the Iraqi insurgents!

If guns become outlawed
only outlaws will have guns!
So I want to carry guns around
so I can shoot, I can shoot the bad guys down.
Just like I shot, I shot Harry down!
But I say...

(I shot the lawyer!)
But I did not go to Vietnam.
(I shot the lawyer!)
But invaded Iraq with my boy who's dumb.

Reflexes got the better of me.
But my war begun in 2003
goes on, and it goes very well.
But each day, the media has copped out.
Yes, each day, the media has copped out.
And I say...

(I shot the lawyer!)
But I did not go to Vietnam, oh no.
(I shot the lawyer!)
But invaded Iraq with my boy who's dumb, oh whoa.
