The Lyrics

Original was song of Stephen Sondheim describing what theadvisor to the Japanese emperor had to deal with in the crisisthat opened up Japan from it's isolationism. Bush is the leader in question in this parody
It's the second year of your watch, my lord
There are but two more years remaining
And the Democrats are always compaining
They won't go away, my lord
Have some scotch, my lord

I wish I didn't have to remind you
That the scandals aren't behind you
The stock market has been failing
And everybody's yelling
Have some scotch, my lord

I know you're the big kahuna
But you should have listened sooner
We all know oil is your main mission
But you better have some vision
'Cause the Democrats won't go away, my lord
Have some scotch, my lord

The CEO's and lobbyist must not be neglected
We both know how you got elected
Buy more oil stock, my lord
Your hair lately has been thining
And the terrorists my be winning
Have some scotch, my lord

Nancy Reagan always seem to have an astroliger to appear
But my tea leaves are better and I'm here, my lord
And the Democrats are always complaining
They won't go away, my lord
Have some scotch, my lord

You paid no attention to my last letter, your lord
Have some beer if you like it better, my lord
I know you're the Big Kahuna
But you should have listened sooner
The voters want it better, that's why I wrote that last letter
You had soon better get it together, my lord

There's another thing you never suspected
Your dad was the only reason you were elected
Careful what you do about his fatherly advice
Remember he was elected once, not twice
Have some scotch, my lord

Be careful with your grammar, my lord
The public doesn't know what you are saying
And the Democrats aren't playing
Have some scotch, my lord

I know you're smarter than you appear, my lord
The calendar keeps on turning
And you seem so slow in learning that I have long suspected
That you haven't a chance in hell of being reelected
Have some scotch, my lord
