The Lyrics

The Lyin' King is in a box of his own making - lying about WMD's to justify his oil war on Iraq
(instrumental intro)

Shrub's in a box
For bein' unwise.
His polls start to sink.
War was built on his lies.
This dumb king could lose.
Voters may not excuse his war crime.

Lied from the start
'Bout Saddam's role.
To make war, he stoked fear
'Bout weapons of old.
Where have they gone?
Now it just haunts; there's no pile...

Thirsts to slay - Bush wants to.
Start a war he doesn't need to.
Sullenly, he finds he stands bare,
Squawking up a storm.
War was his only avenue
To steal oil revenue.
Nothing we can do or say
Made Bush believe; he had his way.
World said Shrub's wrong.

To feed Bush's greed,
He'll just say what he wants.
Not much we can do,
'But his stealing's not done.
Bombs drop from skies above.
Lies he sold:
Now the Shrub's in a box.

Thirsts to slay - Bush wants to.
Start a war he doesn't need to.
Sullenly, he finds he stands bare,
Squawking up a storm.
War was his only avenue
To steal oil revenue.
Nothing we can do or say
Made Bush believe; he had his way.
World said Shrub's wrong.

Shrub's in a box
For bein' unwise.
His polls start to sink.
War was built on his lies.
We want him gone;
That's what we want.
Bush is vile.

(instrumental ending)
