The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

They'll try to feed your mind, Shrub.
There's no telling what Rove will sell.
Your lies are really doozies.
Still, you boast that you're doing well.
But you're just a dork.
And of course, you're wrong.
No brains - you had to cheat.
A dope, at most, you'll be.
You pissed away prosperity.
And in '04, you're toast, we guarantee.

They'll try to feed your mind, Shrub.
There's no telling what Dick will sell.
Rich donor kickbacks have gobbled
Our surplus, went to hell.
Stress on Cheney's heart,
Running your kingdom.
A Nero you will be.
A zero, who will fail.
And you'll look like a crook again,
Because the Supreme Court installed a fake.

(instrumental break)

You'll squawk and say
You will prove how far we can burn the Earth to a crisp.
Star Wars Number 2...
Your spin machine is so obscene,
In covering up the Bush fraudulency.
Don't look now, Shrub, let's get real.
Your White House bought, "What a deal!" they say.
As your donors pay, but you just don't get it.
You don't know you won't last long.
When your power's gone,
We'll make sure you don't get it back.

They'll try to feed your mind, Shrub.
There's no telling what Rove will sell.
Your lies are really doozies.
Still, you boast that you're doing well.
But you're just a dork.
And of course, you're wrong.
No brains - you had to cheat.
Soon your regime will end.

Why don't we need more stem cell lines?
We know you're just not trying to understand
Intelligence, you lack.
Your spin machine is so obscene,
In covering up the Bush fraudulency.
Don't look now, Shrub, let's get real.
Your White House bought, "What a deal!" they say.
As your donors pay, but you just don't get it.
You don't know you won't last long.
When your power's gone,
We'll make sure you don't get it back.

(instrumental ending)
