The Lyrics

Unlike his father, George H.W. ("Poppy") Bush, who flew combat aircraft for the Navy in World War II, George Dubya Bush avoided the front lines during the Vietnam War by training to fly an obsolete aircraft in the Texas Air National Guard, and still went AWOL.
(instrumental intro)

Poppy served in the Navy, but Dubya played fly boy.
Eventually made czar, with Poppy's big bucks,
Using spin doctors galore, 'cause he sucks.

Poppy served in the Navy, but Dubya played fly boy.
New Caesar of Rome rants, "We'll go it alone!"
Pissed off everyone, that Shrub.

Cowboy who's sleazy, that's Shrub; oil war fraud, he has sold.
And he'll never admit he was wrong to grab that black gold.
This czar just chuckles; 'cause he's jaded, he lies;
The right wing will have its way.
Most of the world can't stand him, and our troops die young.
Went AWOL; where did he stay?

Poppy served in the Navy, but Dubya played fly boy.
Eventually made czar, with Poppy's big bucks,
Using spin doctors galore, 'cause he sucks.

Poppy served in the Navy, but Dubya played fly boy.
New Caesar of Rome rants, "We'll go it alone!"
Pissed off everyone, that Shrub.

Fly Boy's a joke without war wounds.
His fear campaign's forming.
Friends of his Poppy: his cronies, the neocon right.
The world has been shown him; don't like him.
Mayhem he'd do, war crimes; don't know how to take him.
Though he's wrong, he's indifferent.
But his pride won't let him do things to make you think he's bright.

Poppy served in the Navy, but Dubya played fly boy.
Eventually made czar, with Poppy's big bucks,
Using spin doctors galore, 'cause he sucks.

Poppy served in the Navy, but Dubya played fly boy.
New Caesar of Rome rants, "We'll go it alone!"
Pissing off everyone is Shrub.

Poppy served in the Navy, but Dubya played fly boy.
Eventually made czar, with Poppy's big bucks,
Using spin doctors galore, 'cause he sucks.
