The Lyrics

Bush's ballyhooed "capture of Saddam" has been exposed by the foreign press as another stage-managed lie; the Kurds captured Saddam in Iraq, and handed him over to U.S. troops who kept him in the "spider hole" for three weeks until he could be posed for the camera and the "story" could be spun by Bush's neocon handlers to counter adverse news stories about his oil war.
(instrumental intro)

Press called Bush such a "smartie" -
Saddam was captured inside Iraq.
This news strategically timed to coincide
With fresh new rebel attacks.

Bush's quagmire has no miracle,
To save himself from the ax.
And all the world knows who's Shrub's business partner,
Shrub's business partner; Bush....

Posed Hussein.
Bush hopes Saddam will not talk about him;
Posed Hussein.
Bush hopes Saddam will not talk about him,
'Bout him, 'bout him...

Don Rumsfeld dealt twenty years ago
With Saddam; sent arms to achieve
For Iraq, foreign aid all was bein' prepared;
Big weapons Saddam received.

Who got in the way of the things for Shrub?
Saddam - once Prez, since relieved.
Neocon dreams caused by drugs in their coffee,
Drugs in their coffee; Bush...

Posed Hussein.
Bush hopes Saddam will not talk about him;
Posed Hussein.
Bush hopes Saddam will not talk about him,
'Bout him, 'bout him, 'bout him...

(instrumental break)

Neocon dreams caused by drugs in their coffee,
Drugs in their coffee; Bush...

Posed Hussein.
Bush hopes Saddam will not talk about him;
Posed Hussein.
Bush hopes Saddam will not talk about him,
'Bout him, 'bout him, 'bout him...

Now their war dreams all went up in smoke and quagmire;
War focus sold from Day One.
Listen to this weird set, who's hocus-pocus
Will lead to total collapse of Dim Son.
Prison's where they should be for war crimes;
Iraq war plot "word-smithed."

Leaked Plame as a spy, just to spite Joseph Wilson,
Spite Joseph Wilson; Bush...

Posed Hussein.
Bush hopes Saddam will not talk about him;
Posed Hussein.
Bush hopes Saddam will not talk about him,
'Bout him, 'bout him, 'bout him...

(instrumental break, repeat refrain and fade:)

Posed Hussein...
Bush hopes Saddam will not talk about him...
Posed Hussein...
Bush hopes Saddam will not talk about him...
