The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

We'll at last get soaked; what Shrub's done for rich friends.
Caught in the middle when his troubles begin.
Bush's vice is sleazy, that voters must end.
Stop that fool, that fool, that fool...

Went it alone; now reviled; Iraq war plot ingrained.
Talked like a jerk with uneducated brain.
Fought the whole world, counting on ploys for gain.
He's a joker, war creature, world peace in tatters.

Power's what Bush has planned to hold on to.
Power's what Bush has planned to hold on to.
Power's now in the wrong hands.
Power's now in all rich hands.
Power's what Bush has planned to hold on to.

In debt; we're stuck in Shrub's financial situation.
Bush the Phony is evident to the United Nations.
There's no work; his tax cuts flopped like a dud.
As his polls now dive, he's still slingin' mud.

Power's what Bush has planned to hold on to.
Power's what Bush has planned to hold on to.
Power's now in the wrong hands.
Power's now in all rich hands.
Power's what Bush has planned to hold on to.

Ill-gotten powers by Bush's crown.
He heeds nobody, caring just for himself.
We know you want him kicked off his throne.
End Bush plutocracy, plutocracy.
Let's end his sleaze, plutocracy, yeah...
Oh, yeah...

Power's what Bush has planned to hold on to.
Power's what Bush has planned to hold on to.
Power's now in the wrong hands.
Power's now in all rich hands.
Power's what Bush has planned to hold on to.

Power's what Bush has planned to hold on to.
Power's what Bush has planned to hold on to.
Power's now in the wrong hands.
Power's now in all rich hands.
Power's what Bush has planned to hold on to.

(repeat chorus and fade)
