The Lyrics

Heh... I'm honestly surprised that no one seems to have done this previously. Too easy, was it?
George the Liar
Went to the house
A couple of terms in the house an' he said
"Tell you ‘bout this war
‘Til you can’t take any more."

Boy,
Thanks for investigating
This is ground zero

Boy,
Thanks for investigating
You'll never know the real story,
Just a bag full of lies
You stand up and lie.

Do what you want, if you’re rich,
Tell a bunch of slippery lies,
So far so good, said nothing true
Making light of liberal views
You will be like your dad tonight

You stand up and lie
You stand up and lie.
George the Liar
Pants on fire.

George the Liar
Went to the house
A couple of terms in the house an' he was
Just like his father he said
"Tell you ‘bout this war,
‘Til you can’t take it any more." [x2]

You stand up and lie,
The shoe flies at your cheek
The world laughs in your face
Guess you'll buy a gun
You'll buy another one
You'll stand up and lie.

George the Liar pants on fire [repeat ad inf.]

Will the statute of limitations ever expire on blaming everything on Bush? ;D

Nope. Well, not for a good 50 years at least. Although, in fairness, he can more or less be blamed on his father...

LOL...fair enough. 5s for your response. ;D

This isn't one of Bowie's more familiar songs, so that's why it hasn't been done before. But if they get on your case for blaming Bush, ask them why they still blame Clinton, Carter, LBJ and FDR for things. Now I know why Bowie asked if there was life on Mars: He didn't find enough intelligent life down here!

Why are so many people eager to hang Obama for the mess he inherited? George W is the Hideki Tojo of America. He brought ruin and shame thru his corruption and lies. Is it too late to get on our knees and pray we don't get fooled again?
