Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Satire about the now-infamous Downing Street Memo from Britain, transcribed from a secret British prime minister meeting in July 2002, proving to the world that Bush had been intent on making war on Iraq, while he and Tony Blair cooked intelligence reports and spread fear-mongering lies to justify their illegal war.
(instrumental intro)

News is stinging the creep - memo from Downing,
Proved Bush wrong; war promoted his way.
Hanging rope that Bush fears,
Secret words that the British had to say.

It's not hard to explain
Everything Bush was dealing:
On its face, his war dream based on lies.
Yes, the Shrub tried too much,
To just pound his own choice;
Bullied his spies.

Planted fakes, TV;
Neocons' way, ripping Saddam.
They thank G.W.B.,
Still the Dumb One.

News is stinging the creeps - memo from Downing:
Big blowback on Blair for his lies;
And on Shrub; their disgrace is so real,
They're disowned by their own spies.

World knows that this song isn't saying... anything new.
But the memo from Downing... may kill the Shrub and crew.

(instrumental break)

News is stinging the creeps - memo from Downing,
Big blowback on Blair for his lies,
And on Shrub; their disgrace is so real,
They're disowned by their own spies.

World knows that this song isn't saying... anything new.
But the memo from Downing... may kill the Shrub and crew.
