The Lyrics

I really don't like Bush's handling of Enron, Iraq, the economy, and everything else...
The legend lives on from Wall Street on down
On a thing that is called "401(k)"
The market, it's told, is as stagnant as mold
When the clouds of a war turn gloomy

With a load of some cash-26,000 dollars worth
Then my "401(k)" would have been worth empty
That good ship and true was a bone to be chewed
When the gales of war come early

The account was the pride of the company lies
Coming back from a CEO
As a large load of lies, the biggest one surmised
With a Lay and a Skilling well seasoned.

Concluding with Cheney, they weren't so brainy
They left with some new lies for Wall Street
And later that night when when the stock closing bell rang
Could it be a recession we're feeling

The stocks in the market, oh bad earnings they met
Liars breaking the stock to bankruptcy
And the Democrats knew, even I knew too
'Twas the witch of the war clods come stealing

Do you know what it takes as the recession breaks
When our moron, George Bush, drove us here?
Onto war, onto lies, when the whole world cries
Of the wreck of the George W. Bush
