Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

John Poindexter, convicted felon and mastermind of the Iran-Contra scandal, now oversees construction of a massive surveillance database called Total Information Awareness (T.I.A.) to snoop on all Americans.
(instrumental intro)

On Poindexter, Bush is countin'
To watch over everyone.
It's T.I.A., and C.I.A.
KBG for the Dim Son.

It's the wet dream of the Far Right:
To make dissenters "go away."
Civil rights lost; it's appalling.
They'll watch what you do and say.

Ol' Mr. Iran-Contra...
Poindexter's now the head spy.
Ol' Mr. Iran-Contra...
Massive surveillance to pry.
Big Brother takes your freedom away.

(brief instrumental riff)

On Poindexter, Bush is countin'
To watch over everyone.
It's T.I.A., and C.I.A.
KBG for the Dim Son.

Constitution, they're abusing.
All your rights gone; it's insane.
Bush has done this to grab power,
So his cronies all can gain.

Ol' Mr. Iran-Contra...
Poindexter's now the head spy.
Ol' Mr. Iran-Contra...
Massive surveillance to pry.
Big Brother takes your freedom away.

It's the wet dream of the Far Right:
To make dissenters "go away."
Civil rights lost; it's appalling.
They'll watch what you do and say.

Ol' Mr. Iran-Contra...
Poindexter's now the head spy.
Ol' Mr. Iran-Contra...
Massive surveillance to pry.
Big Brother takes your freedom away.

(instrumental break)

On Poindexter, Bush is countin'
To watch over everyone.
It's T.I.A., and C.I.A.
KBG for the Dim Son.

Ol' Mr. Iran-Contra...
Poindexter's now the head spy.
Ol' Mr. Iran-Contra...
Massive surveillance to pry.
Big Brother takes your freedom away.

(instrumental fade)
