The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

But of course, Bush sees things their way.
He must serve... the country's wealth today.
Business failures, big tax giveaway,
As people lose their homes.

And all the world... laughs at Bush The Clown,
As this jerk... lays his gauntlet down.
He needs Cheney... to lead him around.
The world's at risk from this swine.

(Chorus:)
The people say, "Cheney, you run Shrub's world.
But a long life you must lead (to run Shrub's world)."
Bush's lies help steal and derail democracy.

Cheney... is George Bush's brain.
Bush was made chopped liver when he went to Spain.
In Sweden, they flayed his name,
As they mooned Dick Cheney's boss!

Not kind... are the words they say
About Bush, from far away.
Bush said if he didn't get his way,
To Crawford, he'd go home!

The people say, "Cheney, you run Shrub's world.
But a long life you must lead (to run Shrub's world)."
Bush's lies help steal and derail democracy.

Dick Cheney has to watch out, 'cause
His bad heart had horror stories.
He must feel the burden and the size
Of Bush's purgatory.

But Bush has seldom told the truth,
'Cause he's not an honest man.
Dick Cheney does his best to help Bush stand.

The Right... fears they're going down.
Cheney talks to his pliant clown.
The Shrub's a man... who's so unsound.
Just hear us when we say:

The people say, "Cheney, you run Shrub's world.
But a long life you must lead (to run Shrub's world)."
Bush's lies help steal and derail democracy.

The people say, "Cheney, you run Shrub's world (you run Shrub's
world)
But a long life you must lead (to run Shrub's world)."
Bush's lies help steal and derail democracy.

(Repeat chorus and fade)
