Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Terrorist alerts are also useful diversions for Bush administration's incompetence and corruption.
Ridge won't say - we're in the dark
What threat there is on Fourth of July.
Ridge won't say - we're in the dark
What threat there is on Fourth of July.

People tired of terror warnings from Mr. Police Czar.
Too often he's been wrong.
What the hell is Ridge now ranting?
"You are safe, Americans."
But we've been warned by him for so long...
He still can't say...

(brief instrumental break)

Ridge won't say (still in the dark)
What threat there is on Fourth of July.
Ridge won't say (still in the dark)
What threat there is on Fourth of July.

Terror warnings keep on piling from Mr. Police Czar.
Not worth much at all.
Will Bush help to change the world?
Can he dig it? No, he can't!
The world's eluded Bush for so long...
That's Bush's way.

Bush the Divider, spouting his spin of the day.
This dumb man... still plans... to have things his own way.
Liberties gone, 'cause of our boss!
'Cause of our boss, no? Say no!

(instrumental break)

Bush won't say (he's in the dark)
What his plans are, and won't say why.
Bush won't say (he's in the dark)
What his plans are, and won't say why.

Cronies leaching, without blushing;
They're ruining the nation.
Hastening our fall (hastening our fall)
Dubya wants it, really wants it...
He may rig it (yes, he can):
Suspend elections during "war time."
Bush's way?

Don't say yeah (no-o-o-o)
Tell him no...
Tell him no...

(instrumental ending)
