The Lyrics

I read the news today. Oh, boy.
We're so sorry
'Bout the prisoners
We're so sorry if we caused them any shame
We're so sorry
'Bout the pictures
But if senators should question
We'll be sure to pass the blame

We're so sorry but we haven't had a plan
Since May
We're so sorry
'Bout the torture--
If embarrassing things happen
We can spin them all away......

(Rumsfeld, to reporters:)
"We're so sorry
And disgusted
But since freedom is untidy,
It's okay!
We're sooo sorry
'Bout the beatings--
We'll appoint a new commission
Till the heat just blows away....."

Nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah

Scandals 'bout the torture
Scandals in headli-i-i-ines
Scandals 'bout the murders
Scandals heaped on lies

(Bush, to Cabinet members:)
"Secretary Rumsfeld notified me,
He gave me his report
And another PDB
I read it kinda quick
After his apology
Played a round o' golf
(Round o' golf)
This throws a little wrench into transferred sovereignty, eh, Colin?"

Scandals 'cross the water
Scandals for G.I.-i-i-i's
Scandals 'bout the torture
Scandals heaped on lies

See the Bush administration in Iraq
(In Iraq)
There's no way they're turning back
In the middle of attacks
See the Bush administration in Iraq
(In Iraq)
There's no way they're turning back
Bush cuts Rumsey lots of slack

Rumsey's not a goner
Rumsey's doin' fi-i-i-ine
Rumsey's not a goner
Rumsey's doin' fine............
ęBob Gomez 2004........Now we know how many holes it takes to fill the
Oval Office.

Great job Bob! I loved it. I gave it 5-5-5. But you're right about this not being over. It's only just begun. Other countries hate us enough now, I don't even want to know what's going to be the repurcussions of this latest.

Nice job. Can't tell you how many times the Harry S Truman quote has been referenced in newspapers of late - I guess this administration is waiving their right to invoke it.
