The Lyrics

Satire about Dubya's abysmal environmental record as Governor of Texas, with air pollution and smog making Houston one of the nation's worst cities for air quality
(instrumental intro)

We can't see clearly now in Houston, 'cause
Polluters have no obstacles in their way
This has made Dubya proud
He's lost his mind

The smog has blocked the light (light)
Light, light during the day
The smog has blocked the light (light)
Light, light during the day

This governor makes us shout:
"His brain is gone!"
Lobbyist bad dealings
Are what we feared

Bush's campaign
They have been paying for
The smog has blocked the light (light)
Light, light during the day

Deregulation
Is bad law in disguise
Keep out the lead!
Preserve our clean skies

We can't see clearly now in Houston, 'cause
Polluters have no obstacles in their way
This has made Dubya proud
He's lost his mind

The smog has blocked the light (light)
Light, light during the day
The smog has blocked the light (light)
Light, light during the day

Deregulation
Is bad law in disguise
Keep out the lead!
Preserve our clean skies

We can't see clearly now in Houston, 'cause
Polluters have no obstacles in their way
This has made Dubya proud
He's lost his mind

The smog has blocked the light (light)
Light, light during the day
The smog has blocked the light (light)
Light, light during the day

The smog has blocked the light (light)
Light, light during the day
The smog has blocked the light (light)
Light, light during the day
