The Lyrics

We've not much time to go...
In '04 November, vow
To vote out Bush - the world will smile.
Or you'll rue you've blown your chance
To boot the Fake (a boil to lance).
Bush Baby's trigger happy, all the while.
His warhawks are all chicken livered;
When their chance came, they hid or shivered;
They chose to all goose-step.
Bush couldn't fake lack of prep.
And we'll remember that he lied;
He misled about why people died
In Iraq; war crimes should be tried.
His way, the world defied...

Lie, lie, the Republicans lie.
Truth - they dread it; they would shred it.
So they will not say why
Their good ol' boys raise flags of Dixie and cry:
"We will never change our ways, so don't try.
Never change our ways, so don't try."

His sheep fight for the crook named Shrub.
The boob "handshakes with God above,"
Right wing rabble tell us so.
Yes, Bush deceived about his goal
For Iraq; war for oil control.
His right wing screech and howl that "France must go!"
Right wing numbskulls love the Shrub, who's dim,
While they picked on France, which dissed his whim.
The world's ticked off - Bush ruse
Was all rigged so Saddam could be bruised.
His war brought only outrage; bombs that struck
On a gun-poor nation, just a sitting duck.
It's all true; just to make a buck.
His way... the world defied.
More war, he's bringin'...

Lie, lie, the Republicans lie.
Truth - they dread it; they would shred it.
So they will not say why
Their good ol' boys raise flags of Dixie and cry:
"We will never change our ways, so don't try.
Never change our ways, so don't try."

Now for three years, Bush went it alone.
Crime boss just sat on his stolen throne.
But that's now how it used to be.
The Supreme Court sang, "We're for Bush's team."
All those votes uncounted; a Bush scheme.
People's choice denied to you and me.
Bush was made the King (a monarch-clown);
This jester stole his phony crown.
The courtroom was adjourned; democracy was burned.
A world menace who would light the spark
For war on those whose skins were dark.
The Bush Gang urges, "Leave our mark - our way, if they defied."
More war, they're bringin'....

Lie, lie, the Republicans lie.
Truth - they dread it; they would shred it.
So they will not say why
Their good ol' boys raise flags of Dixie and cry:
"We will never change our ways, so don't try.
Never change our ways, so don't try."

Helter skelter; with more nukes, they'd pelter,
To care you off to a fallout shelter.
Alerts on high, polls falling fast.
Bush's press lets him pass.
Right wingers tried, and new laws got passed,
Bush the Jester gained more power, so vast.
The Enron affair caused Bush to fume,
But networks played his marching tune.
Press laps dogs now all dance,
To keep their viewers in a trance.
Public prayers, Ashcroft has revealed:
His iron hand refused to yield;
Our liberties are gone, no shield;
No aid, if you defied...
Lies they're slingin'....

Lie, lie, the Republicans lie.
Truth - they dread it; they would shred it.
So they will not say why
Their good ol' boys raise flags of Dixie and cry:
"We will never change our ways, so don't try.
Never change our ways, so don't try."

Bush the Emperor called for God's grace,
As he bombed nations into place.
In no time, wars he'll start again.
The Moron's mind is simple; not too quick.
Backlash splat from his scandals stick.
Let's fire Bush the Devil and his friends.
The world watched the wars he waged:
His hands blood-drenched; reasons were staged.
For oil, Iraq fell... to take their oil wells.
Now the blame piles high on the Neo-Right;
No WMD's in sight.
But the haters now laugh with delight.
The world, they have defied.
Lies they're slingin'...

Lie, lie, the Republicans lie.
Truth - they dread it; they would shred it.
So they will not say why
Their good ol' boys raise flags of Dixie and cry:
"We will never change our ways, so don't try.
Never change our ways, so don't try."

Bush heard the world denounce his views.
To him, more war is just happy news.
And he just smiles - it's bombs away.
The Oil Clown has a "sacred" chore:
Conquer Earth and use the fear of war.
Bush war plan's bare: said, "Refuse us, and you'll pay."
Bombed Iraq streets, and children screamed.
Bush said, "God's word has spoken."
Where bombs fell, all was broken.
And the three men we despise the most:
Bush Father, Shrub, and Jeb should roast.
In '04, we hope Shrub is toast.
Just say, Bush is despised.

Lie, lie, the Republicans lie.
Truth - they dread it; they would shred it.
So they will not say why
Their good ol' boys raise flags of Dixie and cry:
"We will never change our ways, so don't try.
Never change our ways, so don't try."

(Slowly:)
Lie, lie, the Republicans lie.
Truth - they dread it; they would shred it.
So they will not say why
Their good ol' boys raise flags of Dixie and cry:
"We will never change our ways, so don't try."
