The Lyrics

Dubya and his administration unvravels as they are unable to refute the testimony of former security official Richard Clarke, who blasts the Bushies for being obsessed with Iraq, while being negligent and unprepared against terrorism, leading to the September 11 attacks. As sung by a desperate Dubya Bush, about to lose his "wartime president" credential:
(instrumental intro)

Go away... Richard Clarke!
His testimony's torture, oh my!
Go away... Richard Clarke!
His testimony's torture, oh my!

War-enhancing, war-hawk staffing;
Our planned Iraq war dream.
Where did my pals go wrong?!
Clarke's words got played, night and all day:
"Neocons rigged it: Afghanistan.
And they'd been waitin' for a long time...
For bombs away..."

(instrumental break)

Go away... Richard Clarke!
His testimony's torture, oh my!
Go away... Richard Clarke!
His testimony's torture, oh my!

Clarke's still talking, charges piling.
I plan staying still czar.
Stings us, one and all.
Folks say I estranged the world.
My plan's big, yes (big was my plan)
Clarke's revelations at the wrong time...
They still play...

Scandal horizons... darken my election day.
My press fans... still can... spin stories my own way.
This just kills me... Clarke, please get lost!
Clarke, please get lost!
Oh, no, no...

(instrumental break)

What'd you say... Richard Clarke?
Go away, you're bleeding me dry!
What'd you say... Richard Clarke?
Go away, you're bleeding me dry!

Rove is screeching; scandal's touching;
A squeal from the nation:
Wanting my recall (wanting my recall)
Now I'm taunted, really taunted
Can Rove rig it? (yes, he can)
Clarke's revelations at the wrong time...
They still play...

(instrumental ending)
