The Lyrics

So he replaced Andy Card as White House Chief of Staff. Yeah. That's the guy who's the problem. Uh-huh. Another lie.
(guitar opening)

Lord a-mighty, I feel my blood pressure rising!
Higher and higher, feel it pound deep in my soul!
Sir, sir, sir, sir, what can I do to get fired?
My brain is flaming, I think it's time for me to go!

I'm working for a liar
who's put the country in the fire
and I need break from this guy!
I'm burning out!

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh! I feel my blood pressure rising!
Help me, I'm sinking, approval down to 29!
Churning, churning, it's churning, my stomach, it hurts me!
Out of my ears there's smoke, I don't feel fine!

I'm working for a liar
who's put the country in the fire
and I need break from this guy!
I'm burning out!

(instrumental break)

It's coming closer, my work is becoming real shoddy!
Won't you help me, my conscience is slipping away!
It's hard to breathe around this guy who's been cheating!
Lord have mercy, he's worse than Trent Lott or DeLay!
Yeah!

I'm working for a liar
who's put the country in the fire
and I need break from this guy!
I'm burning out!
I'm burning out!

Ahhhhhhhh!
I feel
like junk, like junk, I'm burning out!
I feel
like junk, like junk, I'm burning out!
Ahhhhhhhh!
like junk, like junk, I'm burning out!
Ahhhhhhhh!
like junk, like junk, I'm burning out!

Ahhhhhhhh!
Ahhhhhhhh!
I feel
like junk, like junk, I'm burning out!
Ahhhhhhhh!
I feel
like junk, like junk, I'm burning out!
Ahhhhhhhh!
(repeat 'til fade)
Actually, at last check, Georgie's approval rating was still, depending on whose poll you believe, between 33 and 39 -- even Faux News hasn't had the guts to put him closer to 50 than 40.

We need a Dominque de Villepin to propose a law making possible to fire Bush bozos without cause, of which there's now plenty.
MrMacphisto - April 01, 2006 - Report this comment
Interesting analogy with Villepin, John, but I think the problem has more to do with the general complacency of the American public. Less than half of the electorate vote. Anyway, this is a good parody....

Good one 5s

Odds are 5-3 that he's not worse than Delay...is that even possible??Let's hope there's no delay in Delay's trial and sentencing...beheading might send a good message.5's

Dee, while a rather painful administration (good choice of words) of the death penalty is too good for Tom (the Hammer) DeLay, the man who orchestrated the Clinton impeachment by threatening "moderate Republicans" in the House and then sent the Cuban thugs to disrupt the Miami recount when we all know Gore won, what Bush needs a good kick in the ass. At least, that way, there'd be a good chance of brain damage.

Good parody
Michael Pacholek - April 03, 2006 - Report this comment
Let me clarify something: I do not actually advocate execution, painful or otherwise, for Tom DeLay, George W. Bush, or any of the other malfeasant Republicans. I want them alive to see them get their just desserts, first in the 2008 election, and then from history, which will say that, compared to Bush the Son, Bush the Father was a military and economic genius, and a tower of moral strength. But that comparison does him no favors, either.

Clever to turn E's burn into "Burning Bush", so to speak. 555

Rest in peace, Dennis Linde. The author of "Burning Love," and the Dixie Chicks' "Goodbye Earl," died on December 22, at the age of 63.
