The Lyrics

where's the weapons george?????????????? p.s this may even may make Will Tong's site...
see if you will, a picture
of wartimes so tragic, amiss
the blood of our children saddens me
can you, not crying
can you picture this

we need this man in a courtroom
a dozen or so peers in that room
liars say curious phrases
he'll feel the heat
the heat we bring to him too

why has he no understanding
why did he act so bold?
answer my questions demanding
maybe you're just like your father, too old?
why did you send off our brothers?
oil prices stratisfied?
another dead son to a mother?
this is what it feels like
when shrub lies

injured to death, through the stomach,
another young soldier has died
you got the infidels all tied up
what has possessed you?
seems dub hasn't pride

why has he no understanding
why did he act so bold?
answer my questions demanding
maybe you're just like your father, too old?
why did you send off our brothers?
oil prices stratisfied?
another dead son to a mother?
this is what it feels like
when shrub lies

when shrub lies
when shrub lies when shrub lies

( I left out all the repeats. You get the message)

You amaze me, William Tong. If you can write so many songs criticizing Bush, then you can sure write a song criticizing Clinton because he bombed Iraq also in 1998, in August to be precise. What do you have to say about Clinton? What do you think he did for us that was good? You people need to focus on the terrorists!!!!! That is all I got to say!!!!
