The Lyrics

Finally found an OS that apparently hasn't been done here already, and lemme tell ya, that ain't easy. For those who DKTOS, the poor rhyming of "do" and "fools" was faithfully reproduced from the otherwise great slow-dance original.
Tell me what's wrong with him, now
Tell me why I
Gotta fight in foreign countries
Where, probably, I'll die
What would it take to please him?
All our net worth?
Never satisfy this moron
'Til he rules the Earth

Make wars that break us
That's what he'll do
Dissipate us, make them hate us
That's a game for fools
Make wars that break us
That's what he'll do
Take our tax bucks, though the war sucks
That's a game for fools

When I come home from workin'
He's on TV
Nominating some right wing nut
Or just his buddy
He snoops on his own people,
Thinks it's not wrong
Constitution says, "Get warrant"
Can't read words that long

Make wars that break us,
That's what he'll do
Try to con us, spy upon us
That's a game for fools
Make wars that break us,
That's what he'll do
Yeah, with his reign he and Dick Cheney
Play a game for fools

Make wars that break us,
That's what he'll do
Disrespect you to protect you,
That's a game for fools
Make wars that break us, that's what he'll do
Ruin your life and take more life
That's a game for fools

I know that old Stylistics tune, Tommy. You nailed it --- that's a well-constructed parody.
