The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

There's John Ashcroft, the head law man, lookin' up everyone he could.
He hates the Internet, 'cause it makes him work hard.
You know he thinks that we're up to no good.
Bush is a moron, who's just itchin' for war, to let the bombs drop.
And he looks at John and says, "Hey, Johnny, come this November,
Our party must not flop!"

Chorus:
So, let's take back America, for you and me.
Take back America, and democracy, maybe.
Take back America, while we're still free.
Free the White House from plutocracy.

(brief instrumental break)

Bush is a dumb man, with a big smirk.
Made "king" through Supreme Court machination.
He's got a sleazy air, sleazy style.
He let Big Oil run free to rule our nation.

Said: "Pop told me... when I was younger...
Boy, you're gonna be President."
And just like everything else in Boy George's schemes,
The "rule of law" got bent.

So, let's take back America, for you and me.
Take back America, and democracy, maybe.
Take back America, while we're still free.
Free the White House from plutocracy.

(instrumental break)

Bush's people are just "sheeple."
They just don't want to know...
He's a jerk who is unwise;
Runs our nation down.
Had enough! So, Bush must go!
Ooh, yeah!

Bush's spinners are abusers,
So the truth they must seal.
While their simpleton plays for his thrills,
His shills refill his spills...

So, let's take back America, for you and me.
Take back America, and democracy, maybe.
Take back America, while we're still free.
Free the White House from plutocracy.

So, let's take back America, for you and me.
Take back America, and democracy, maybe.
Take back America, while we're still free.
Free the White House from plutocracy.

(instrumental ending)
