The Lyrics

Dubya now says "Osama Who? Let's topple Saddam Hussein"
(instrumental intro)

Osama's not been found.
Now Bush says Saddam must go down.
Iraq's "It," not Afghanistan.

Shrub's got no mind and has no mandate to rule.
Our allies think Shrub's a war hawk fool.
Tear Iraq apart, just to save his Republicans.

When the bombing starts, thank Tony Blair
For saving Shrub's monarchy
From indiscreet things done by Bush's friends;
Scandals haunting the G.O.P.

War is the main thing that Shrub wants to say.
Fool voters before next election day.
Tear Iraq apart, just to save his Republicans.

Rummy and the Dummy trumped up this war...
Yeah... yeah, yeah...
Rummy and the Dummy trumped up this war...
Scandals haunting the G.O.P.

War is the main thing that Shrub wants to say
Fool voters before next election day.
Tear Iraq apart, just to save his Republicans.

Rummy and the Dummy trumped up this war (Iraq)...
Yeah... yeah... yeah (Not Afghanistan)...
Rummy and the Dummy trumped up this war (Iraq)
Yeah... yeah... yeah (Not Afghanistan)...
Rummy and the Dummy trumped up this war...
Yeah... yeah... yeah.
