The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

The power of Shrub is a serious thing.
For this right wing creep, appointed as king.
Right wing hawk, who belongs in a pub.
To start the healing, stop the power of Shrub.

Simpler than Simon; makes you scream.
Wrong and retarded; he's the world's bad dream.
He's a bad, mean hood; strongman of the Right.
Power of Shrub that makes him want to fight.

Lived off his money, and his name.
He's never sweated hard, nor filled his brain.
He's wrong and he's sullen, and a fool at times.
For his war, he'd waste your life.
Stop the power of Shrub.
Stop the power of Shrub.

(instrumental break)

It's time; reveal it: Bush is power mad.
How did he steal it? Weren't no hanging chad.
We will be glad when Bush has run aground.
Bush's power makes our world unsound.

Lived off his money, and his name.
He's never sweated hard, nor filled his brain.
He's wrong and he's sullen, and a fool at times.
For his war, he'd waste your life.

The only friend of Shrub is Blair.
Yeah, but Bush don't care.
He don't know what to do,
'Cept what Dick told him to.
And with a lot of help from his club,
They steal more power for Shrub.
They steal more power for Shrub.
Yeah, they steal it...

(instrumental break)

Lived off his money, and his name.
He never sweated hard, nor filled his brain.
Simpler than Simon, his dumbass appeal.
Dubya is nothing but a heel.
The heel in power; that's the power of Shrub.
Total power, that's the power of Shrub.
The heel, the power of Shrub.
The heel, the power of Shrub.
Steal the power from Shrub.
