The Lyrics

Satire about the Bush cronies profiteering from endless war, i.e. Halliburton and the Carlyle Group
(instrumental intro)

Their lies... have been caught - still got their way.
And as far as they're concerned,
They're still mad at France and say,
"Exposed our deceit? We loathe you!"
Though they tried, war protests won't go away.
Bushies close their eyes and cry:
"Just go away, Bush rules today!" (since installed 2K December)...

They're smiling, while linin' their own pockets.
Cronies count on Bush... for sure.
Plans that end in war.
From good times... to bad times,
Bush started our slide, as our debts soar.
Plans that end in war.

Through war, they distract from corporate sleaze.
Shrub's insane, the world agrees.
Middle East has oil they'll sieze.
Bush's cronies say, "Hey, thank you."
Again, for war crimes, those who took part,
Let's expose their lies and show
Atrocities are off the chart,
Again, the world will remember...

They're smiling, while linin' their own pockets.
Cronies count on Bush... for sure.
Plans that end in war.
From good times... to bad times,
Bush started our slide, as our debts soar.
Plans that end in war.

(repeat chorus twice and fade)
