The Lyrics

President is talkin' about
Baghdad 'n' bad lads 'n' bad hands 'n' Baathists 'n' balkanin' bad land 'n'
This schism, that schism.
All the "al"s: Sadr 'n' Maliki, Anbar 'n' Gore 'n'. . .huh?! Going for an Oscar, got lots of gray matter.
(Got lost oaf, Mad Hatter.)
Enemy entities, enmity, empathy then he pleads. (Ennui, end this, please.)
Says we gotta go.
All he is saying is give surge a chance,
All he is braying, let's splurge on this chance.

President is talkin' about
Ministers, sinisters.
(List'nin', sir, mission, sir?)
Brigades 'n' frigates 'n' fighters 'n' Strykers
'n' why-die? bye-byes.
All he is saying is give surge a chance,
All he is braying is urging this chance.

Let Snow tell ya now:
President is talkin' about
Revolution, devolution, his solution: send the troops in,
Altercation, integration, vindication.
(Liberation? Masturbation United nation? Hallucination.)
All he is saying is give surge a chance.
String-dancin', takin' Dick's demiurge* stance.
Treasury's draining; they're a scourge, these plans.

OK. Let's stay the course.
President is talkin' about
Jackoffs, bozos: Dickie Cheney, Rove, Hadley, Tony Snowjob, Wolfowitz,
Tommy, Scooter (Judy's jailer; did he nail 'er?), Neoconjob, harpy, "Christian." Hapless crim'nals, hat's-nest cripples.
As kids are saying "Big fibs burn your pants.
From tapped wire hanging, they're burning, your pants."

All I am saying is you and Bush had your chances, and, unlike Bush, you have made the most of yours.

I made this song once about the food groups. Didn't work. John Lennon cursed this song by making it unscathed by other non-political parodies. Great work on a really tough songs.

ah, just yesterday I downloaded the lyrics to this OS so I could write "All I Am Saying Is Give War A Chance" - but this leaves any of my ideas for dead - I wish I hadn't mentioned it - brilliant wordplay and brilliant matching to the OS John - 555
