The Lyrics

This one actually made 2 stations in Phoenix! (1 AM, 1 FM)
Dont Worry, Buy Duct Tape

Cost of war make you go broke
Terrorist ire it does invoke
Don't worry, buy duct tape.
Invading Iraq cause us trouble
Stock market fall, gas prices double
Don't worry, buy duct tape.
(Don't worry, buy duct tape yeah)
Uh uh uh uh don't worry buy duct tape....(4x)
No one in Washington use their head
Cover your windows and hide in bed
Don't worry, buy duct tape.
Got to invade the hour is late
Don't want to hear thoughtful debate
Don't worry, buy duct tape (look at me I'm taping)
Uh uh...,don't worry, buy duct tape
(I give you my phone no.
When you infected call me
I give you gas mask) oh...
Don't worry, buy duct tape
It come in gray not green or brown
But it sure hold the plastic down
So don't worry, buy duct tape...(5x)

Now then, this song I wrote
I hope you get it note for note
(Like good little children) don't worry, buy duct tape.

If it was Clinton's people who made a fuss about duct tape, or came up with that stupid color-coded alert system, it would make every wingnut broadcast (FNC, MSNBC, EIB, CBN) every damn day, and be held up as a symbol of liberal elite foolishness. But it was Bush's people, and that makes them patriotic national-security measures.
