The Lyrics

Now look at that yo-yo, that's the way you do it
a politician of the G.O.P.
That ain't workin', that's the way he does it.
Money for nothing down in old D.C.

No, we ain't workin', that's the way they like it.
Lemme tell ya: That Bush, he's dumb.
I'd like to give that idiot my middle finger.
At the same time he can't walk and chew gum.

They got to install microbrained Texan.
Custom fascist delivery.
We got no food in our refrigerators.
While Ari Fleischer lies for him on TV.

See the little fascist with Dick Cheney and Rumsfeld.
Yeah, buddy, 'bout us he don't care.
That little fascist got a government jet airplane.
That fascist only loves millionaires.

They got to install microbrained Texan.
Custom fascist delivery.
We got no food in our refrigerators.
While Bill O'Reilly lies for him on TV.

I shoulda learned to play the race card.
I shoulda learned to pander to the dumb.
Look at Ashcroft, covering the statue.
Man, I think he's going to come.

And he's up there, eatin' little pretzels.
That's not the only choke for G.W.B.
Oh, no, that ain't workin', that's the way he likes it.
Money for nothing down in old D.C.

They got to install microbrained Texan.
Custom fascist delivery.
We got no food in our refrigerators.
While Tucker Carlson lies for him on TV.

No, that ain't workin'. That's the way he likes it.
Another failed Bush Presidency.
That ain't workin', that's the way he likes it.
Money for nothing down in old D.C.

Money for nothing, and it stinks, you see.

I want my, I want my, I want democracy.
I was going to leave out the verse about the "little faggot," but since it contained the word "millionaire," I had to do it.

IT SHOWS SOME IMAGINATION AND A LITTLE TALENT FOR RHIME ,BUT YOU NEED TO GET SOME GAINFULL EMPLOYMENT AND GET IN STEP WITH AMERICA.

Contrary to Bush's best efforts, "W," I have employment, low-gainful though it may be. And I am in step with America, as I insist that elections be fair and Presidents, whatever else they might be, be intelligent.

Michael, I'm giving you 5's even though the nit-picky side of me saw some out-dated references...i.e., I don't think Ari Fleischer has been his designated Media Liar for some time now...but still, the gist is strictly 'Emis' ("Truth" in Hebrew, one of the few words I actually know - and I'm not at all sure about the spelling). Spelling...now that I mention it, your critic "W" needs some work in that area...the word he/she/it was looking for is "RHYME"...and why does this type (anonymous, stupid) always assume if you criticize Dubyah and gang you don't have a job or are somehow UnAmerican or perhaps even Treasonous? I really don't see the connection, perhaps he/she/whatever could 'splain it to me...Naw...forget I asked...

Paul, do you really want to end up losing IQ? If someone like that tries to explain, it's gonna end up costing you Points-
