The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

His lights are on... but no one's home.
His mind... is not his own.
The Right frets... 'bout his mistakes.
We know Shrub... is just a fake.

And his Veep... helps him cheat.
Worried 'bout... his heartbeat.
Leading the Right... as their Chief.
They think that Shrub... is all the need.

Talking heads all think Bush is really good stuff, oh yeah!
They will not tell the truth, nor are they calling his bluff.
We're going to replace him.
We will evict the Shrub

Can't read his lines... can barely read.
His flunkies... consumed with greed.
Bush just cheats... he has no mind.
Something's amiss... what do you find?
A blank-slate mind!

The press... is his slave.
It's obvious... the Shrub's a knave.
There's nothing there... not a clue.
The press is blind... ain't it true?

Talking heads all think Bush is really good stuff, oh yeah!
They will not tell the truth, nor are they calling his bluff.
We're going to replace him.
We will evict the Shrub.

Give him hell, no quitting, we will evict the Shrub!
Give him hell, no quitting, we will evict the Shrub!
Give him hell, no quitting, we will evict the Shrub!
Give him hell, no quitting, we will evict the Shrub!
Give him hell, no quitting, we will evict the Shrub!

(guitar solo)

His lights are on... but no one's home.
His mind... is not his own.
The Right frets... 'bout his mistakes.
We know Shrub... is just a fake.

Talking heads all think Bush is really good stuff, oh yeah!
They will not tell the truth, nor are they calling his bluff.
We're going to replace him.
We will evict the Shrub.

Give him hell, no quitting, we will evict the Shrub!
Give him hell, no quitting, we will evict the Shrub!
Give him hell, no quitting, we will evict the Shrub!
Give him hell, no quitting, we will evict the Shrub!
Give him hell, no quitting, we will evict the Shrub!
Give him hell, no quitting, we will evict the Shrub!
Give him hell, no quitting, we will evict the Shrub!
Give him hell, no quitting, we will evict the Shrub!
Give him hell, no quitting, we will evict the Shrub!
