The Lyrics

Satire about Bush's craven November 2003 state visit to the United Kingdom, which drew over 200,000 protestors, causing Bush to avoid speaking to Parliament or hostile audiences
(instrumental intro)

Oil war, a "bold plan" that Dubya started.
In the U.S. papers, that's "worn-out news."
Using lies to seize his prize.
Truth held loosely, Dubya tries
To rattle sabers;
Spews saber-rattling views.

So how come the Shrub is the only
Leader told "Go where the sun don't shine!"?
Leader-fake invades their land,
So Bush is booed in streets of London.
Nothing by this dumb king
Will make them change their minds.

Venting spleen, the whole world;
Like talk on the streets of London.
Foreign affairs; they oppose U.S. flags.
Shrub's got no time for talking.
He just keeps on stalking.
Brits say, "Bush, go home - to oil war body bags!"

So how come the Shrub is the only
Leader told "Go where the sun don't shine!"?
Leader-fake invades their land,
So Bush is booed in streets of London.
Nothing by this dumb king
Will make them change their minds.

Bush's far right fans say, "New World order will be heaven."
His old man said, "Beware what you've sown."
Shaking up the whole world,
Now on the brink from his f**k-ups.
He seeks lasting power;
Through his blunders, stands alone.

So how come the Shrub is the only
Leader told "Go where the sun don't shine!"?
Leader-fake invades their land,
So Bush is booed in streets of London.
Nothing by this dumb king
Will make them change their minds.
