The Lyrics

{instrumental intro}

{Chief of Homeland Security Tom Ridge}:
People should be warned, terrorists moving in.
I know because of the color of their skin.
Run, run, run... but they sure can't hide.

{pResident Bush}:
An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.
You voted for me, now I will set you free.
But first, brother... I'm going under...

{Poppy Bush}:
Well, the only person talking about their sin is, good soul Jerry Falwell.
And it seems nobody's interested in lying but Ari Fleischer.

{Attorney General John Ashcroft}:
No affirmative action, no gun control, no to abortion, interrogation.
Eavesdrop communication, prison, no pardon.
You have no option.
Shred the Constitution!
Oh yeah, that's the word of the the day, hey, hey!
Shred the Constitution!

{Vice President Dick Cheney}:
The sale of oil is at an all time low.
That pipeline will still be in Afghanistan, even after Ramadan.
And oil, we will... siphon!

{Attorney General John Ashcroft}:
Investigation, that's my passion.
I'm a man on a mission, so you better listen.
Move with caution, 'cause you're on television.
I'm the warden and I have spoken!

{Secretary of State Colin Powell}:
Another round of talks...
So, round and around and around we go.
Where the world's headed, only the pRez knows!

{instrumental break}:

{White House Counsel Karl Rove}:
Oh, our great pResident, can't you hear us talkin' to ya?
Shred the Constitution!
Oh yeah, that's the word of the day, hey, hey
Shred the Constitution!

{National Security Advisor Condoleeza Rice}:
Fear in the air, tension everywhere.
Unemployment rising fast, Chevron not selling lots of gas.

{Secretary of Health Tommy Thompson}:
And the only safe place to live is on an Indian reservation.

{Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld}:
And the war goes on...

Cronies, lobbyists, Poppy's friends and relatives.
Social Security, no privacy, Medicare
Everywhere, you don't care
We're yelling, lend us an ear:
End the war!

{Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld}:
And the war is still on...

{instrumental break}

{The Rest of the GOP}:
Great googalooga, can't you hear us talkin' to ya, sayin'
Shred the Constitution!
That's the word of the day... hey, hey
Let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya
Shred the Constitution!

That's what the law of the day... hey, hey
Let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya
Shred the Constitution!
That's our law for today!...
