The Lyrics

Satire about the Bush Administration's bungled relief efforts in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina
Blight upon the City of New Orleans;
Hurricane hit, but fed relief just fails.
Late response, because George Bush decided
His vacation should be longer, with more bike trails.

What went wrong: his failed policies of gutting federal agencies.
Katrina floods houses, farms, and fields.
Passing blame is Bush's game.
"Looters" what they called black men.
A graveyard of flooded automobiles.

For this screw-up, all America hates Dubya.
All the polls are saying they blame the Dim Son.
Bush is blamed for fall of City of New Orleans.
Now are gone, 10,000 lives, while he had his fun.

Bush was "working hard" on vacation down in Crawford.
What was the point of his endless Iraq war?
Cindy Sheehan made him gag; Bush lost the battle,
When he couldn't tell her what Casey had died for.

Bush's dunces followed orders, overruling engineers,
To sacrifice the levee funds for oil to steal.
Were Chertoff and Brown both asleep?
Shocked that they should take the heat
But the chaos of their failure is all too real.

For this screw-up, all America hates Dubya.
All the polls are saying they blame the Dim Son.
Bush is blamed for fall of City of New Orleans.
Now are gone, 10,000 lives, while he had his fun.

Took time to help City of New Orleans.
Deranged czar's responsiblity.
In our homes, saw terror, grief and mourning
Of the Mississippi cities inundated by sea.

'Cause all these towns and people were failed by a bad team;
The Bush Team fails; still won't heed the news.
Halliburton and their throng will gain
Through contracts, profits from the pain.
Insanely privatizing; anti-government views.

For this screw-up, all America hates Dubya.
All the polls are saying they blame the Dim Son.
Bush is blamed for fall of City of New Orleans.
Now are gone, 10,000 lives, while he had his fun.

For this screw-up, all America hates Dubya.
All the polls are saying they blame the Dim Son.
Bush is blamed for fall of City of New Orleans.
Now are gone, 10,000 lives, while he had his fun.
