The Lyrics

My, My How Our President Lied

A long long time ago
I can still remember
how our country used to have some style
And if Bush got a second chance
would he forget Iraq and just bomb France
then maybe he'd be happy for awhile

But W showed his chicken's liver
with every speech he did deliver
Bad grammer is the man's rep
and in his mouth he does step

He can't remember if he lied
when he said the weapons Iraq did hide
but he's full of shit deep down inside
Today the president lied

Say bye-bye to America's pride
the whole world thinks we're heavies
and no ones on our side
And all the good old boys just look us straight in the eye
and say no more of our soldiers will die
no more of our soliders will die

For over five years now we've been in Iraq
and gas prices are really whack
but that's not how it used to be
When Bush pushed for the almighty green
with a lie he made up on the scene
and a price thats paid by you and me

Oh and while the country was falling down
old W was acting like a clown
The stories we all scorned
still no weapons were discerned
And while Rumsfeld read from his book of lies
the GOP was on the rise
and no one heard our mournful cries
as one more soldier died

Say bye-bye to America's pride
the whole world thinks we're heavies
and no ones on our side
And all the good old boys just look us straight in the eye
and say no more of our soldiers will die
no more of our soliders will die

Helter skelter in the desert swelter
our birds fly in and bomb their shelters
8 miles high and falling fast
They bomb us back a cold impasse
Who knows how long this war will last
while Bin Laden still in hiding draws their wrath

Now the war-time air's a dark perfume
and Bush still plays a liar's tune
He says we'll win the fight
but we haven't got the right
As the public tried to clear the field
the republicans refused to yeild
Do you recall what was revealed
how many soldiers died?

Say bye-bye to America's pride
the whole world thinks we're heavies
and no ones on our side
And all the good old boys just look us straight in the eye
and say no more of our soldiers will die
no more of our soliders will die

Oh, and there we were all in one place
an entire nation lost the race
With no time left to start again.
So come on George be nimble George be quick
Why are you such a clueless prick
who doesn't care who he offends

Oh, and as we watched him sign the page
our hands were clenched in fists of rage
No angel born in hell
could break that satan's spell
And as our men die in this fight
a sacrifice to the hungry right
Satan laughs out with delight
as one more soldier dies

Say bye-bye to America's pride
the whole world thinks we're heavies
and no ones on our side
And all the good old boys just look us straight in the eye
and say no more of our soldiers will die
no more of our soliders will die

We met a man who hates the jews
and genocide stays in the news
Can't we find a better way
I don't think we can take much more
we've seen this happen once before
and we promised that we'd never turn away

And in the streets the children scream
from hunger, war, and broken dreams
No words of protest spoken
our moral compass broken
And the people that we trust the least
feed us to the hungry beast
who gorges on an endless feast
as one more soldier dies

Say bye-bye to America's pride
the whole world thinks we're heavies
and no ones on our side
And all the good old boys just look us straight in the eye
and say no more of our soldiers will die
no more of our soliders will die

Say bye-bye to America's pride
the whole world thinks we're heavies
and no ones on our side
And all the good old boys just look us straight in the eye
and say no more of our soldiers will die
no more of our soliders will die

A five on the sentiment, but your structuring needs a LOT of work. Several rhymes were off, and you left out the second verse ("Did you write the book of love..."). Keep trying. We need more voices like yours.

Have to agree with Michael. I know this song and tried singing the first 3 verses through. But I gotta tell you, I love the sentiment. Keep working on it. 454

Love the sentiment, didn't love the pacing. This was good, so I gave it a 354, an odd vote I know, but none the less, keep it up. As MP said, we do need more voices like yours.

I agree with the others ....great words but they don't quite fit in places....

Overall, a good effort, although you could've parodied more of the original lines. American Pie ain't easy!
