The Lyrics

Written during Campaign 2000
(instrumental intro)

Shrub is in despair
His campaign is losing ground
Shrub is in despair
He's a lightweight all around
And we all know that he's looking foolish
Using tactics that we all despise
He's allowing his pride to deceive him
If he dares to think he'll win the prize

Shrub is in despair
'Cause he lost three primaries
Shrub is in despair
John McCain snatched victories
And we know that George Bush must be dreaming
When he says Democrats are to blame
With his money, he just can't believe it
That he can't just rely on his name

Shrub is in despair...
Shrub is in despair...

(instrumental break)

Shrub is in despair
He's not fooling anyone
Shrub is in despair
Losing races isn't fun
When he spoke at Bob Jones U., he's losing
Any respect for the truth
If it's just right wing votes he's receiving
The electorate will give him the boot

Shrub is in despair
His campaign is losing ground
Shrub is in despair
He's a lightweight all around
And we all know that he's looking foolish
Using tactics that we all despise
He's allowing his pride to deceive him
If he dares to think he'll win the prize

(instrumental break)

Shrub is in despair...
Shrub is in despair...

(repeat refrain and fade)
