The Lyrics

Satire of Bush's oil war on Iraq and unilateralist first strike foreign policy
(instrumental intro)

Shrub, keep talking... all you want.
Dissidents maced, protesting your crime.
Who dares... to speak what's true?
The world fears your Far Right coup.

Burning to get Iraq's oil.
Fix your Daddy's past boo-boo.
Freedom now to kill...
Freedom now to kill...

(instrumental break)

Forced to grab it, so you say.
Big Oil squawked; you'll do things their way.
Who dares... to speak what's true?
Your foolish pride is burning you up.

Burning to get Iraq's oil.
Fix your Daddy's past boo-boo.
Freedom now to kill...
Freedom now to kill...

(instrumental break)

War's sounding good to you now.
Keep talking on.
Citizens fear the worst.
Their civil rights running aground.
Squawking 'bout the things you do.
Squawking 'bout the things you do.

Shrub, keep talking... all you want.
Dissidents maced, protesting your crime.
Who dares... to speak what's true?
The world fears your Far Right coup.

Burning to get Iraq's oil.
Fix your Daddy's past boo-boo.
Freedom now to kill...
Freedom now to kill...
Freedom now to kill...
Freedom now to kill...

(instrumental break)

War's sounding good to you now.
Keep talking on.
Citizens fear the worst.
Their civil rights running aground.
Squawking 'bout the things you do.
Squawking 'bout the things you do.

Forced to grab it, so you say.
Big Oil squawked; you'll do things their way.
Who dares... to speak what's true?
Your foolish pride is burning you up.

Burning to get Iraq's oil.
Fix your Daddy's past boo-boo.
Freedom now to kill...
Freedom now to kill...
Freedom now to kill...
Freedom now to kill...
