The Lyrics

I know some folks think that Bush, Cheney and company are real honest and have lots of integrity. I am NOT one of those folks. So, using 'Starship's' 1982 release, "Winds of Change" here I will now proceed with a little "Cheney" bashing. If you've been paying attention at all you may have notice that as of a week or so ago Cheney was STILL insisting that all the original bull they shoveled out about Iraq was true and trumpeting how well things were going there for "The Coalition". Yeah, well maybe in the 'Bizarro' universe he exists in but not the one most of us deal with every day. I wrote this to a live performance VCR tape I have of the Starship performing at Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver, Canada from 1983. I've included a lyrics link in the bottom comment section. The live performance included an extra repeat of the final chorus so I've done parody lyrics for that even though the lyrics link does not include it.
(Instrumental Intro)

Fed bullsh*t by Chalabi, man
Fell for what he said
Wanted Iraq, no regard for cost
Went full speed ahead

And now - folks starting to doubt
So now - the questions start to mount
Yes, now - it's gets harder to deny
Boy, that Cheney sure can lie

Support crumbles and resistance grows
Still, Cheney defends
The lies and blather that led to this war
Have led to a dead-end

And now - folks starting to doubt
So now - our losses start to mount
Yes, now - getting harder to deny
Story changes all the time

(Instrumental break)

Had all your lies planned carefully
But your foolish plot will fail
You didn't gain the Iraqi's trust
So our might's to no avail

But still - continue to tout
We're tired of the lies you spout
Yes, now - getting harder to deny
Folks are starting to ask "Why?"

(Instrumental break)

Bought bullsh*t from Chalabi, man
Brushed dissent away
Now we're stuck in a quagmire
Other's kids will pay

And now - we're saddened again
But now - you continue to spin
So now - your scheme has gone awry
Still, you won't admit your lies

Yes, now - the sadness descends
Is it ever gonna end?
Do you care how many die?
Who will suffer for your lies?

- Your lies
- Men die
- More lies
- More die

(Instrumentals to end)

DKTOS, but I really like the lyrics... This wouldn't happen to be the same as the "Winds of Change" song that Scorpions did, would it?

Boy, I give this three fives!

MrMacphisto - Hmmm...I'm DKTOS on the Scorpions altogether, but I checked leoslyrics.com website and that's a different song. This one was written by Pete & Jeannette Sears and was the title track on a Starship album released around 1982 - it didn't sell too well but the song sounded real good on the performance that I have taped. It's really a good sounding song and at that time 'Starship had Mickey Thomas, who might not be everyone's cup of tea personality-wise but he sure has a helluva voice. He and Grace Slick alternated some of the verses on this song and sang together on the chorus. His voice really blends in fantastically with hers (he can go higher than Slick).

Paul, I'm ashamed to admit that I forgot the original. Well done, of course, on the piece. Can I waste your space with a plug and a link for the new DNC ad? http://www.democrats.org/mistakesweremade/index.html Thanks in advance.

Alvin - I had a suspicion that if anyone on this site actually HAD the record it would probably be you. Thanks! glad you liked it. Arwen, jeez, I never even HEARD of the Scorpions. But that's ok
