The Lyrics

Can't be a flip-flopper. No. A President must stick to his tough decisions, come hell (Iraq) or high water (New Orleans) or scandal (just about everything else).
(instrumental opening)

Well, beat the press, and hold the truth.
The Son came out today!
We'll scorn again, there's new sass at the mike.
Troops abroad, not headed for home.
It's a brown-nose-handlin' man!
Anyone can understand why we don't like.

Oh, Cheney's his coach!
Not ready to play... today!
Cheney's his coach!
Not ready to play... today!
No mistakes... does he make!
Never yield!

Well, he spent some time in the campaign slime.
Vietnam, on the bench.
You know, he took some lumps
when the Rummy case struck out.
But, say, Slick Willie, Hillary
Obama, and Edwards
they'll say it ain't so!
Bush, go, the time is now!

Oh, Cheney's his coach!
Not ready to play... today!
Cheney's his coach!
Not ready to play... today!
No mistakes... does he make!
Never yield!

(instrumental break)

Yeah! He's rotten, he's rotten!

Got a beat-up land, some homemade lies
and his mouthpiece at Fox News.
You know, I think it's time
to give this Bush a ride.
When we hit the beach
he'll be impeached.
Last moments of the Son!
He's gone! And you can tell that schmuck goodbye!

Oh, Cheney's his coach!
Not ready to play... today!
Cheney's his coach!
Not ready to play... today!
No mistakes... does he make!
Never yield!
Oh, Cheney's his coach!
Not ready to play... today!
Cheney's his coach!
Not ready to play... today!
No mistakes... does he make!
Never yield!

Yeah!

(instrumental close)
Oh, somewhere in this favored land, the sun is shining bright. The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light. And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout. But there is no joy in Crawford. Flighty Dubya has struck out!
