The Lyrics

(instrumental opening)

If you could see crime in this battle
the first thing that you'd like to do
is to see, every day
U.S. soldiers are passing away
and we blame you-know-who.

If Bush had gone after Osama
and finished the job way back then
our boys wouldn't be facing quagmire
there in Iraq
and we blame Bush again.

But there never seems to be enough blood
for Bush to know he's done too much
to our country.

I've looked around enough to know
he's not the one we want to go
through time with.

(instrumental break)

If you'd cast your vote for John Kerry
this adventure might now be through.
We could stand up to Iran
and North Korea and maybe
bin Laden would be dead too.

But there never seems to be enough blood
for Bush to know he's done too much
to our country.

I've looked around enough to know
he's not the one we want to go
through time with.

(instrumental close)

Bull manure, Mikey. It shows your absolute lack of knowledge of the facts -- and your cowardly, effeminate, ultra-liberal spirit.

Why don't we settle this in person -- if you don't mind me stretching the language a little -- and we'll see who's the effeminate coward. Besides, as your god, St. Ronald of Bel Air, liked to say, "Facts are stupid things." Only when your ilk uses them.
