The Lyrics

The real historical record of the late President Ronald Raygun is obscured by non-stop fawning tributes from the media shills: hundreds of thousands of civilians killed in wars by right wing proxies that his administration supported, rollback of environmental programs, arming of Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein, arms for hostages deal with Iran to illegally fund the Contras, record budget deficits, etc.
Press shills now fawn, over Ron Raygun, who's gone.
They just see the fables from his days gone by.
And all we hear them say is "Every day's Ronald Raygun Day."
Whitewashing is expansion of his lies.

Bush 41 was his Vice, now we've got Bush Baby.
Many folks 'round the world said Raygun's crazy.
'Cause of what went down: arms for hostages to Iran.
Cooked up wars with mysterious dark-hid plans.

In his younger days, the press would bow and fawn.
Hidden were wars, reasons that he based lies on.
Was a man who'd always see "good's on his side."
Big Business would just take us for a ride.

Press shills now fawn, over Ron Raygun, who's gone.
They just see the fables from his days gone by.
And all we hear them say is "Every day's Ronald Raygun Day."
Whitewashing is expansion of his lies.

Press shills now fawn, over Ron Raygun, who's gone.
They just see the fables from his days gone by.
And all we hear them say is "Every day's Ronald Raygun Day."
Whitewashing is expansion of his lies.

Press shills now fawn, over Ron Raygun, who's gone.
They just see the fables from his days gone by.
And all we hear them say is "Every day's Ronald Raygun Day."
Whitewashing is expansion of his lies.

Press shills now fawn, over Ron Raygun, who's gone.
They just see the fables from his days gone by.
And all we hear them say is "Every day's Ronald Raygun Day."
Whitewashing is expansion of his lies.

(repeat chorus and fade)
