The Lyrics

As sung by pResident Dubya, desperate for a war with Iraq, to a reluctant Congress:
(instrumental intro)

You'll do things my way, or George Bush ain't my name.
Your way and my way better be one and the same.
Poppy don't understand it.
He doesn't think I can win.
He thinks I'm some kind of natural born fool to want to bomb Iraq again.
Don't try to appeal it...
Just do as you're told!

(instrumental break)

Hey, Saddam won't please us, though we're making war noise.
I'll pray to Jesus: Voters, make me your choice.
We're gonna bomb Saddam like we're avenging angels, for daring to defy me.
I don't know nothin', but I'll try to win,
'Cause corporate scandals are hounding me.
Don't try to appeal it...
Just do as you're told!

(instrumental break)

Must I repeat?! I want that Saddam to go!
No talking, just do as you're told!

(instrumental break)

You'll do things my way, or George Bush ain't my name.
Your way and my way better be one and the same - right?
Poppy don't understand it.
He doesn't think I can win.
He thinks I'm some kind of natural born fool to want to bomb Iraq again.
Don't try to appeal it...
Just do as you're told!

Hold talk down, hold talk down, hold talk, hold talk down,
Hold talk down, do as you're told.

Daddy is going to be avenged in Iraq;
Gonna get Saddam, I wanna bomb, come on, attack!
As you're told!
No talking, just do as you're told...
