The Lyrics

Satire about pResidential Advisor Karl "Turd Blossom" Rove, known as "Bush's Brain," now being investigated by U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald for his role in leaking the identity of covert CIA operative Valerie Plame, as revenge against her husband, Ambassador Joe Wilson, who opposed the Iraq War
(instrumental intro)

Rewarded... by your party
For bein' a hatchet man, 'cause Bush knows squat.
Used leaks; strategically ripping foes with lies;
All those who opposed your plots.
An exposed spy made it clearer that
A leopard won't change spots.

To rule the world, the Bush Team calls you "partner,"
Team calls you "partner" 'cause...

You're Shrub's brain.
You think Fitzgerald's wrong, seeking out you,
You're Shrub's brain.
You think Fitzgerald's wrong, seeking out you,
Out you, out you...

You had leaked several years ago,
Plame's name, when you got so peeved.
When Joe Wilson had said, "Yellowcake's not there."
For war, world was deceived.
You caused things to sway for King named Shrub,
Thought you'd get off scot-free.

Your right wing dreams were like drugs in your coffee,
Drugs in your coffee, 'cause...

You're Shrub's brain.
You think Fitzgerald's wrong, seeking out you,
You're Shrub's brain.
You think Fitzgerald's wrong, seeking out you,
Out you, out you...

(instrumental break)

Your right wing dreams were like drugs in your coffee,
Drugs in your coffee, 'cause...

You're Shrub's brain.
You think Fitzgerald's wrong, seeking out you,
You're Shrub's brain.
You think Fitzgerald's wrong, seeking out you,
Out you, out you...

After you had blabbed secrets to Robert Novak,
You, of course, naturally spun.
But you blew it; press will not... roll over for ya.
Polling apocalypse for the Dim Son!
Jail's where you should be for your crime.
That's where you'll rot (we wish),
For outing a spy, who's the wife of Joe Wilson,
Wife of Joe Wilson, so...

You're Shrub's brain.
You think Fitzgerald's wrong, seeking out you,
You're Shrub's brain.
You think Fitzgerald's wrong, seeking out you,
Out you, out you...

You're Shrub's brain...
You think Fitzgerald's wrong, seeking out you...
You're Shrub's brain...
You think Fitzgerald's wrong, seeking out you...

(repeat final refrain and fade)
