The Lyrics

Broke down in a rich man's town
The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
You end up like a dog that's been beat too much
Till you spend half your life just covering up

Brown in the U.S.A.
I was a child left behind in the U.S.A.
I was Homeless in the U.S.A.
Bushed in the U.S.A.

Got in a corporate business scam
So they put a alot-of-cash in my hand
Sent me off to a homeland (security)
To go and spy on my fellow man

Hated in the U.S.A.
I was Black in the U.S.A.
I was Beaten in the U.S.A.
I was put to death in the U.S.A.
Bushed in the U.S.A.

Come back home, blind to what i see
supreme court says "Son now it was up to me"
Went down to see my D.C. man
He said "Son, don't you understand"

I had a brother at Washington
fighting off our government
They're still there, he's all gone

He had a woman he loved in CIA
They got a picture of her in the news

Down in the shadows of the Pentagon
Out by the gas fires of the WMD
I'm four years burning down the road
Nowhere to run ain't got nowhere to vote


Bushed in the U.S.A.
I was Blighted in the U.S.A.
Lied to in the U.S.A.
I'm a long gone ozone in the U.S.A.
Bushed in the U.S.A.
Bushit in the U.S.A.
Bushed in the U.S.A.
I'm a cool rocking Deadhead in the U.S.A.

Mr. Kerry, are you really going to spend 3 trillion dollars on healthcare if you get in? Wow, who's going to pay for that? You know government-run medicine doesn't work well; look at any country that has it.
Ebenezer Scrooge - July 08, 2004 - Report this comment
Mr. Kerry, I must say that the prior commentator has a valid point. Let the poor suffer. They are poor because they are lazy, and because they are lazy, they do not deserve health insurance paid for by the tiny group of wealthy elite Americans who own the vast majority of assets in America. The poor are lazy and undeserving. Let them die and decrease the surplus population. But then again, if the elite deserving Americans let the poor die, who will do all of society's menial tasks? Who will work as the servants, the chambermaids, the janitors, the chauffeurs, the wage-slaves of the elite deserving Americans? Perhaps they should be allowed to live, but be kept under careful control by the elite deserving Americans who own most of the wealth and who control the government.

....LOL... go Scrooge... Anyway, great song, and I must ask the question: which is worse.... Spending 3 trillion on healthcare or perhaps even more than that on the military and nation-building? Personally, I prefer to take care of my own nation's poor rather than the poor of a nation that doesn't seem to even want our help.... screw Iraq....

MrMacphisto....your Muse wants you to parody The Beach Boy's "Barbara Ann" as "Screw Iraq" .... "Screw-screw-screw, screw-screw-Iraq".

I'd like to think the real John Kerry has more talent than this. Hell, Dan Quayle had more talent than this, not to mention he's smarter than Dubya. (Really!) Because it's a Bush-basher, I couldn't bottom it out, but all 2s. Royce: President Kerry will not spend $3 trillion on health care, but give Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld-Ashcroft 4 more years, and they'll CHARGE $3 trillion on it. MrMac: We heard, "Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iraq" back in January '91, and it was tired by February '91. On the other hand, Bush HAS screwed Iraq, just like he screws every other country he comes into contact with. Where was he in 1861 when we needed him? Scrooge: Clearly, you haven't read much of Mr. Dickens' unauthorized biography of you. I think you should, and you'll see your view doesn't have a ghost of a chance.

I think all of you people who would like to Mr. Kerry as president, don't realize what you're asking for. A liar, a cheat, a hypocrite, just like Clinton and Gore--from the same mold. SHAME ON YOU! President Bush HAS and WILL uphold the dignity of the office of the President of the United States. No other president has had to deal with all that he was handed by his predecessor. If Clinton had dealt with these threats appropriately, perhaps President Bush would not have had to send troops to war. Bush is an HONEST man, he is CHRISTIAN, and he lives as such. He is doing what he thinks is best for our country and our security. Kerry, on the other hand, only earned his "3 purple hearts" from self inflicted injuries, ask his war buddies! He and his wife have taken most of the Heinz factories OUT of the USA and put them in Mexico and abroad which puts tons of $$ in THEIR pockets. And, he cares about our country--NOT! Get real people, and get with it. Appreciate what you have, be thankful that we have had President Bush the last 4 years to clean up the mess from the previous 8 years. And, I pray that we are fortunate to have him as president for another 4 years--I want honesty and dignity to REMAIN in the White House.

You really are. Are you by chance related to Big G?

Somebody stole the remarks I was going to make a day and a half before I was going to make them. Actually, I wasn't going to call anybody an idiot - that's not nice. But I agree with the rest...
