The Lyrics

God bless our troops. Lord please bring them home safely
Bush flew over
Thanksgiving in Iraq
And with his troops sat down to eat

You think he cares
Are you so unaware?
He just wants votes to keep his seat

Who made him God to say
"Just one more year for you!"

[chorus:]
Stands before my eyes
Last meal then I'll die
Flies off in his plane
Leaves behind our pain

He spoke with us
And said that he's so proud
He thinks a vote is worth a friend

The terrorists
Love to take shots at us
Dead by Christmas, it's my end

Everyday full of fear
What I am doing here?

Stands before my eyes
Last meal then I'll die
Flies off in his plane
Leaves behind our pain

Bush get us out
Hey Bush get us out!
You won't fight, you just run away
Time for you to fly

You went AWOL
Why can't I do the same?
You were a coward way back then

You show your face?
I want my family
My dead friends won't see their's again

Just take your turkey and go!
Our pain you'll never know

Stands before my eyes
Last meal then I'll die
Flies off in his plane
Leaves behind our pain

1 there is NO proof that Bush was AWOL. 2 are you even a soldier Mr. Floyds garrage? If you aren't you have no right to speak for a soldier by saying why can't we go AWOL. 3. I doubt Bush woudl risk his life for a few votes I think he may be one of the few men in politics that can see past thier reelecton and to what this country needs.
