The Lyrics

Dubya's own Harken Oil scandal makes him a poor preacher for marketplace morality
The sleaze in biz is from W!
The sleaze in biz is from W!

"No more regulations - they're too much harm."
Said the pRez.
It's only begun - corporate scandals come crashing down.
Where's our pRez?
Big stock plunge set in motion.
Billions in debt - now an ocean!
Bush just says, "Stop...your misbehavior.
You had better stop... I'm your savior."

The sleaze in biz is from W!
The sleaze in biz is from W!

Bush should be scrutinized!
How did he get away with his Harken Oil prize?
Knew his stock would tank, and then he scored.
Filed his report late to the S.E.C. board.
Accounting scandals scare investors away.
If Bush could cheat, they can't believe what he'll say.
Bush just says, "Stop... your misbehavior.
You had better stop... I'm your savior."

The sleaze in biz is from W!
The sleaze in biz is from W!

(instrumental break)

Cronies practiced their sleaze, just as Bush did himself.
Workers got squeezed, execs made ill-gotten wealth.
Bush just says, "Stop...your misbehavior.
You had better stop... I'm your savior."

The sleaze in biz is from W!
The sleaze in biz is from W!

The sleaze in biz is from W!
The sleaze in biz is from W!

(repeat refrain and fade)
