The Lyrics

Satire about the now-infamous Downing Street Memo from Britain, transcribed from a secret British prime minister meeting in July 2002, proving to the world that Bush had been intent on making war on Iraq, while he and Tony Blair cooked intelligence reports and spread fear-mongering lies to justify their illegal war.
(instrumental intro)

Neocons secretly signaled Saddam's fall (not on his own).
This right wing throng went oil stealing, with Bush sitting on the throne.
And so they passed over decisions; Bush Baby knew what they had done, yeah.
Now they're so afraid it will be found true; Downing Street Memo's a smoking gun.

Baby Bush can't pretend it; thousands were killed for what he'd done.
More blatant lies that he's selling, for bogus threats that will not come.
Bush's crew went hell for leather, made it so, for war; they're sleazy scum.
War crimes shown, by Blair and W; Downing Street Memo's a smoking gun.

(instrumental bridge)

His standing's now diminished; last November, Bush has just "won."
He can hear neocons whining; their lies remind us of Dim Son.
Despite the secrecy that's running; scandals are beating just like a drum.
Polls have knocked him down; he's takin' hits; Downing Street Memo's a smoking gun.

Downing Street Memo's a smoking gun.
(No mistakin' it)
Yes, that memo's a smoking gun.
(No mistakin' it)
That memo's a smoking gun.
(Knocked him down; takin' hits)

(fade)
