The Lyrics

Satire about Dubya's quagmire in Iraq, once thought to be Shrub's sure ticket to another term as president
(instrumental intro)

"Polling is strong," said Karl Rove to Bush Baby.
"Help your campaign, and let's start a war."
No doubt, this dumb fella, the Shrub, flashed a grin.
War could deliver, and give him spine.
Revealed now: war was all planned... we find...

Coup... in Iraq, after Hussein.
Talk throughout that land is they hate the Shrub.
Coup... that the Shrub explains away:
"Iraq's happy with our troops inside."

Casualties pile; Bush's blunders we see.
If most concur, then he's history.
We can defeat his campaign of deceit;
Carefully speak and expose his lies.
Shearing the Shrub means no more troops die.

Coup... in Iraq, after Hussein.
Talk throughout that land is they hate the Shrub.
Coup... that the Shrub explains away:
"Iraq's happy with our troops inside."

(instrumental break)

Revealed now: war was all planned... we find...

Coup... in Iraq, after Hussein.
Talk throughout that land is they hate the Shrub.
Coup... that the Shrub explains away:
"Iraq's happy with our troops inside."

Coup... in Iraq, after Hussein.
Talk throughout that land is they hate the Shrub.
Coup... that the Shrub explains away:
"Iraq's happy with our troops inside."

(repeat chorus and fade)
