Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Satire targeting the infamous "Torture Memos" written in 2001 and 2003 to give President George Dubya Bush illegal "war-time powers" by former Deputy Assistant Attorney General John Yoo, using tortured legal reasoning to sanction torture while violating the U.S. Constitution and the Geneva Conventions
(instrumental intro)

Bush said, "What I want to do... is rule, and not say why."
Convinced the world his lies were true; Iraq bombed from the sky.
Bush has just nine more months to go; impeach him 'fore he's through!
Stop torture, his "solution" that was cooked up by his crew.

Chorus:
What did Yoo do? He wrote
That "torture can go on and on."
For W., more torture can go on and on.
In times of war, more torture can go on and on.
Won't say, what for; more torture can go on and on.
Yoo and Bush still shilling war.

What did Yoo do? He wrote
That "torture can go on and on."
For W., more torture can go on and on.
In times of war, more torture can go on and on.
Won't say, what for; more torture can go on and on.
Yoo and Bush still shilling war.
