The Lyrics

Satire about the craven political grandstanding by Dubya, Jeb Bush, and the Republican right wing regarding the tragic case of Terri Schiavo (pronounced "shy-vo")
(instrumental intro)

Right wingers dream;
Dreaming of power for their own.
On us they prey;
Refuse to leave us alone.

Dubya says he loves all their issues,
So he gives them time.
At election time, right wing friends followed blind.
They followed blind.

Schiavo - her life was strung...
Out for the right wing's gain.
Protestors beat the drum.
Schiavo, used to inflame... what they say.

Playing with fire...
Control means "for your own good."
They taunt and they lie.
Schiavo was used, 'cause they could.

Bushes stand out, demogague fakery;
Minds they would rile.
All they saw was the way more votes they could pile;
Votes they could pile.

Schiavo - her life was strung...
Out for the right wing's gain.
Protestors beat the drum.
Schiavo, used to inflame... what they say.

(instrumental break)

Right wing dream has now turned into blunder.
Despite their demands,
Courts said so, "Rule of law still works in this land."
They wring their hands.

Schiavo - her life was strung...
Out for the right wing's gain.
Protestors beat the drum.
Schiavo, used to inflame... what they say.
