The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

Ashcroft Reichsmarshal's saying:
"Must be loyal - we're not playing.
Or you will squeal in confession.
War forever!"

"Dems are beat, so we'll hold on.
Ain't it sweet?" the Far Right's crowing.
Steal Iraq's oil, they'll try to.
So goes this coup.

Now's the time their dreams are finally coming true.
Feels so good; they're trying
To buy time for the crown of W.
Spread right wing bullsh*t lying.

Don't you know it's a right wing coup?
Don't you know world hates W.?
Don't you know it's a right wing coup?

Time to show: unappealing
What the Right is revealing.
Their corruption is no virtue.
And it's all true.

They've got power, and they'll use it.
We had freedom, now we'll lose it.
Overridden by their side.
To war, we'll slide.

Hoped those times would never ever come again.
Freedoms, they are taking.
When the Right falls, the better citizens
Will boot Shrub for his faking.

Don't you know it's a right wing coup?
Don't you know world hates W?
Right wing helped by King W.
Don't you know it's a right wing coup?
