The Lyrics

Bush Advisor Karen Hughes abruptly resigns from the White House staff to return to Texas
(instrumental intro)

Since Karen Hughes got out, crises have arisen,
Because Dubya has lost support.
Hughes helped Bush steal his executive position;
Still, his words don't sound smooth at all.
It really wasn't Karen's fault her boss is no genius.
Heard Bush say: "It's Karen I cannot lose."

Now our dumb king heads us for depression,
Failed Mideast peace mission,
Workin' without Karen Hughes.

Well, Bush was used to spittin' on peace keeping missions;
Ignoramus in foreign affairs.
While talking rash to his Secretaries,
Sayin': "Hey, now, Rummy, let's bomb over there!"
Bush would get stuck finding his way out of a bag
If Karen wasn't spinning his views.

Now our dumb king heads us for depression,
Failed Mideast peace mission,
Workin' without Karen Hughes.

You know this man has no ability.
And we're not jokin' that he's failed as czar.
He'll never get himself straight,
'Cause Karen Hughes couldn't wait;
She left his sinking ship floundering far.

Well, all Bush can do to shake off dread
Is tell himself it isn't true.
Like jumping off a cliff from Niagara Falls
Is this dumb king without Karen Hughes.

(Sung by Karen Hughes over the phone:)
"Bush Baby, don't call to see me; I'm no longer your teamie.
I'm retired from spinning your views."

Now our dumb king heads us for depression,
Failed Mideast peace mission,
Workin' without Karen Hughes.

(instrumental break)

(Sung by Karen Hughes over the phone:)
"Bush Baby, don't call to see me; I'm no longer your teamie.
I'm retired from spinning your views."

Now our dumb king heads us for depression,
Failed Mideast peace mission,
Workin' without Karen Hughes.

Now our dumb king heads us for depression,
Failed Mideast peace mission,
Workin' without Karen Hughes.
