The Lyrics

Ah, yes. It's yellow ribbon time again. A man in Burlingame, California objected to the posting of yellow ribbons as an eyesore, insulting and against city ordinances. This song is for him.
Tie A Yellow Ribbon

(Trumpet solo)

I'm comin' home, I've done my time
As a foreign correspondent for Channel 9
Well, I've been filing stories from the border with Iraq
Now I know just what to do as soon as I get back
As soon as I get back

I'm gonna tie a yellow ribbon 'round George Bush's neck
Laser-guided bombs can't win my respect
Why should I tie a yellow ribbon 'round George Bush's neck?
I think he's a nut, I'm gonna kick butt,
The Middle East's a wreck
So tie a yellow ribbon tightly 'round George Bush's neck

(Trumpet solo)

Cab driver, please make it quick
If I see any more o' those ribbons I might get sick
As soon as I get off the plane there's ribbons all over the place!
Why do we celebrate this international disgrace?
Don't let those ribbons go to waste!

Let's all tie a yellow ribbon 'round George Bush's neck
Quadraplegic Baghdadis can't object
Why should we tie a yellow ribbon 'round George Bush's neck?
I know he's no wimp, he's more like a chimp,
The Middle East's a wreck
So let's tie a yellow ribbon tightly 'round George Bush's neck

(Trumpet solo)

Those mobs of looters, did you see 'em?
As they stormed right through the National Museum
Ten thousand years of history walked off to the underworld
As our brave battalions stood around like passive girls
You know it makes me want to hurl!

Come on and tie a yellow ribbon 'round George Bush's neck
It's Recession Time, I say what the heck?
Why should we tie a yellow ribbon 'round George Bush's neck?
I can see no end
It's spend, spend, spend
And guess who writes the check?
So let's tie a yellow ribbon tightly 'round George Bush's scrawny little neck

(Trumpet solo and fade out)
