The Lyrics

Just yesterday, seemed like... we were rich as could be.
Now it seems we're all but out of cash.
I'll tell you the reason that we're all lost at sea.
But I don't think you really have to ask...

I've seen loss and I've seen gain.
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end.
But that's before I met the Shrub and his rich friends.
It's going to be a while before it's that way again.


Won't you look down upon us, Jesus?
You've got to bring this to an end.
You've got to get that moron out of there.
He's too stupid to know when he has to bend,
He's going to strip our country bare.

I've seen loss and I've seen gain.
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end.
But that's before I met the Shrub and his rich friends.
It's going to be a while before it's that way again.

Been racking my mind for a easy way... to end this misery.
When you listen to Bush talk, he will spin your head around.
There's no easy way to do it, at least that I can see.
I just hope he don't run us all into the ground.

Oh, I've seen loss and I've seen gain.
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end.
But that's before I met the Shrub and his friends.
It's going to be a while before it's that way again.

There's just a few years before this dummy gets thrown out, now...
Come on, let's vote him out...
