The Lyrics

(Sung to the tune of "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting" by Elton John)

(instrumental intro)

Dubya's spite - Saddam is whom he hates;
He'll rattle sabers; stir up fear.
It's all poppycock, for to bomb Iraq.
It's for getting Iraq's oil, you hear?

His whole plan's drunken, but it's bought by ditto-monkeys;
Uneducated, they don't care.
There is no dispute; Bush has ill repute,
Tryin' to police world affairs.

(piano glissando)

Ran roughshod over United Nations.
He's mad and has no discipline.
Dubya's spite is why we're fighting.
War provides distraction-spin.

Steal Iraqi oil from Saddam Hussein;
Bush will get his chance, all right.
'Cause Dubya's spite is why he'll strike.
Dubya's spite, he'll fight, he'll fight, he'll fight... whoo-oo....

(instrumental break)

He'll attack still despite bein' proved unright.
Incompetence and folly, Fools of the Right.
Use military muscle just for Big Oil's greed.
Shrub, we think: you little fink, you'll soon be history.

These chickenhawks are clowns whom we dislike.
They're hounds of the arms trade; want a nuke first strike.
Shrub's a rich, servile product of the ruling class,
Whose best friends gloat when they raise the price of gas!

(piano glissando)

Ran roughshod over United Nations.
He's mad and has no discipline.
Dubya's spite is why we're fighting.
War provides distraction-spin.

Steal Iraqi oil from Saddam Hussein;
Bush will get his chance, all right.
'Cause Dubya's spite is why he'll strike.
Dubya's spite, he'll fight, he'll fight, he'll fight... whoo-oo....

(instrumental break)

Dubya, Dubya, Dubya,
Dubya, Dubya, Dubya,
Dubya, Dubya, Dubya's spite is why...

Dubya, Dubya, Dubya,
Dubya, Dubya, Dubya,
Dubya, Dubya, Dubya's spite is why...

(piano glissando)

Ran roughshod over United Nations.
He's mad and has no discipline.
Dubya's spite is why we're fighting.
War provides distraction-spin.

Steal Iraqi oil from Saddam Hussein;
Bush will get his chance, all right.
'Cause Dubya's spite is why he'll strike.
Dubya's spite, he'll fight, he'll fight, he'll fight... whoo-oo....

(instrumental break)

Dubya, Dubya, Dubya,
Dubya, Dubya, Dubya,
Dubya, Dubya, Dubya's spite is why...

Dubya, Dubya, Dubya,
Dubya, Dubya, Dubya,
Dubya, Dubya, Dubya's spite is why...

(repeat final refrain and fade)
