The Lyrics

Satire about the world's most unpopular leader; the target of thousands of protestors wherever he goes, even in friendly nations
(instrumental intro)

He's failed by his team, due to right wing commotion;
Bush rides to conquest, a reviled rogue, whose throne...
Now works in the service of cronies' high living,
While Cheney keeps answers to questions unknown.
Right wing started the movement; started the mowing;
Started the spinning; Bush, we can't stand.

Why he's ripped so in places he's been to:
Our king is most bogus, like stories he'll tell.
Why he's ripped so, this king will not hear it.
The men who serve W. are wrongful as hell.

(Yodel:)
Got away with... leading a coup.
Now the world is... Bush's to screw.
Got away with... leading a coup.
You know what... to... do...

(instrumental break)

Bush the Doofus can't guide you;
He couldn't if he tried to.
His forces of darkness just show him the way.
His cronies brought dangers with their violent world;
They pollute the land and the air and the sea.
Bush's coup was his ride,
'Cause he didn't win - hell;
Boy Bush is nothing... without monarchy...

Why he's ripped so in places he's been to:
Our king is most bogus, like stories he'll tell.
Why he's ripped so, this king will not hear it.
The men who serve W. are wrongful as hell.

(Yodel:)
Got away with... leading a coup.
Now the world is... Bush's to screw.
Got away with... leading a coup.
You know what... to... do...

Got away with... leading a coup.
Now the world is... Bush's to screw.
Got away with... leading a coup.
You know what... to... do...
