The Lyrics

Satire about warmonger Bush's failed "checkbook diplomacy" to bribe and blackmail poor nations to support his U.N. resolution to attack Iraq - France and Russia have already promised to veto
(instrumental intro)

Vetoed U.N. vote; they say, "Do not attack."
Said Dubya, so pissed, "I'll still bomb Iraq!"
Bush assumed thus far, as appointed czar, no one could stop
His strongman bluff; as U.N. vandal, he's a flop.

They dissed his crown;
Vetos smacked Dubya down - lost control.
He said, "Some more checks... oughta get it.
Buy more votes - they're indebted..."
Bush has been slowed...

Vetoes... two states said "No-o-o-o...!"
Bush flashed his money; wants war to go.
Vetoes awaitin', telling him to slow.

Vetoes... two states said "No-o-o-o-o...!"
He said, "Some more checks... oughta get it.
Buy more votes - they're indebted..."
Bush has been slowed...

(instrumental break)

Vetoes said "Non" and "Nyet," not "Bon," so Bush lost his vote.
Wouldn't toe his line, Bush blew it; but Saddam's still the goat.
Bush is fakin' like he's divine; changin' Iraq's borderline.
Blowin' his smoke.

Sayin' "Some more checks... oughta get it.
Buy more votes - they're indebted..."
Bush has been slowed...

Vetoes... two states said "No-o-o-o...!"
Bush flashed his money; wants war to go.
Vetoes awaitin', telling him to slow.

Vetoes... two states said "No-o-o-o-o...!"
He said, "Some more checks... oughta get it.
Buy more votes - they're indebted..."
Bush has been slowed...

(repeat refrain and fade)
