The Lyrics

While more than half of the American public now wants him impeached, Vice President Dick Cheney continues to agitate for more war with an attack on Iran
(instrumental intro)

Dick just wants to escalate... war with Iran's a given.
Dick just wants to escalate... more war to erase li-i--i-ife.

Dick has no faith in the peole.
It's the people he's let down.
Dick won't take another way,
'Cept attack Iran, anyhow...
More war he's selling you.

Dick just wants to escalate (yeah, yeah)...
Dick just wants to escalate (yeah, yeah)...
War on Iran's a given.
Dick just wants to escalate... more war to erase li-i-i-ife.

Had his hand starting wars to kill,
And his war excuse took awy...
Our civil rights and our liberty;
Dick wants fear to sway...
More war he's selling you.

Dick just wants to escalate (yeah, yeah)...
War on Iran's a given (yeah)
Dick just wants to escalate...
War on Iran's a given
Dick just wants to escalate...
More war, to erase li-i-i-ife.

Bush and his regime's going down.
Let Cheney burn underground... underground...
Underground... underground...

No, Cheney's not bothered by sorrow.
And he can't be asked to debate (oh, no).
He's running out of time, and he'll find Impeachment Day.
More war he's selling you,

Dick just wants to escalate (yeah, yeah)...
War on Iran's a given (yeah, yeah).
Dick just wants to escalate...
War on Iran's a given (yeah)
Dick just wants to escalate...
More war to erase li-i-i-ife.

Bush and his regime's going down.
Let Cheney burn underground... underground...
Underground... underground...

Dick... just wants to escalate (escalate)...
Dick... just wants to escalate (escalate)...
Dick... just wants to escalate (escalate)...
Dick... just wants to escalate (escalate)...

(repeat refrain and fade)
