The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

Dubya whines and pines for "the days of old."
Lived off his name... lived off his name.
With brains of a bird, and a joker's mold.
Lived off his name... lived off his name.
And he carried it with him, like his daddy did.
But he's living a dream we'd like to rid.

(Refrain:)
Bush's way or the highway...
Bush's way or the highway...
Bush got ahead, though life just passed him by.

(brief instrumental break)

Terrorist planes whistled down from the sky.
Bush hid too long... Bush hid too long.
Wouldn't see New York, and he wouldn't say why.
Bush hid too long... Bush hid too long.
Then he finally showed up in a pro-Bush crowd.
Said, "I can't go nowhere... protests are loud!"

Bush's way or the highway...
Bush's way or the highway...
Bush got ahead, though life just passed him by.

(long instrumental break)

Salute His Fraudulency...

(short drum break)

He's a fool who scams, but the right wing sees
He's got a team... he's got a team.
Tried to train his mind; failed repeatedly,
Despite his team... despite his team.
Opponents are "terrorists" who oppose his coup.
If you don't see his way, too bad for you...

Bush's way or the highway...
Bush's way or the highway...
Bush got ahead, though life just passed him by.

Bush's way or the highway...
Bush's way or the highway...
Bush got ahead, though life just... passed him by.

(instrumental ending)
