The Lyrics

I think the most revealing reaction to the Dubai World Ports deal was the President's -- right out of the box he went nuclear, threatening to scrounge up a veto pen. Why so desperate, Mr. Bush? What happens if the deal doesn't go through? You get chewed out by your OPEC masters? :} btw I have Thursday in the Lou Dobbs Exploding Head Pool.
Arab sheiks, in the ports,
I think they're from a placed called Dubai.
Arab sheiks, in our ports,
Lots of folks are fit to be tied.
People ranting, people howling,
A man's head exploding --
CNN's Lou Hobbs.
Can George Bush go save the ports?
Can he dig it? No he can't!
Cuz he's been working such a long time --
For Arab sheiks.

Another Bush, on the take --
I think he gets a check from Dubai.
One more Bush, on the make --
Lots of things are kept from our eyes.
George Bush Senior; George Bush Junior;
The whole bunch at Carlyle --
Are selling out us all.
Will we help them raid the world?
Can we dig it? No we can't!
Cuz we've been mad for such a long time
At Dubai

Two men from Dubai flew a 9/11 plane;
Iran, man, still can, buy parts through Dubai's lanes.
Listen children, that is not all!
That is not all, oh no, NO, NO!

Funky haze, on the ports --
Everything was done on the sly.
A few more days, time is short --
Everything just makes you say, Why?
People freaking, people lying --
A real edgy nation.
Waiting for shoes to fall.
If we want to, really want to,
Can we kill it, yes we can!
Cuz we've been mad for such a long time
At Dubai

With W, it would be "nucyular". The one suggestion I could give is to replace some of the Italian words in the original with Arabic words.

Excellent work. If only you could use what appears to be an immense talent on good news. And welcome to the right side of Amiright, which, of course, is the left side. Another headache for "Lurker" and his ilk. Sometimes I miss Guy DiRito. He had wit and style to go along with his beliefs, most of our opponents just have venom.

Welcome to Amiright, Nag! A great job on this, timely and you pretty much covered it. I caught a bit of Lou DOBBS flying off the handle the other night. I think you captured the unpleasant atmosphere of this slimy deal perfectly. 555!
