The Lyrics

The chilling tale of how a college "C" student became the leader of the free world.
When I was young it seemed that life was so wonderful, and comfortable
Cause we were powerful and in control
Then Daddy's judges came through and they appointed me the President
With no precedent, Pennsylvania Avenue resident
So I entered a world that was full of complexity, far too much for me
I never got beyond dichotomy
How ironic it was that I would lead a democracy, without diplomacy
In many ways an aristocracy

At nine pm I go to sleep
Since questions run too deep
For such a simple man
Cheney please, please tell me what to do
I haven't got a clue
Now that we've tossed Saddam

Now watch me talk tough while I ignore the economy
What an atrocity, full of hypocricy, a travesty
And on the world's stage I see no need for civility, stability
Instead there's arrogance, hostility
Watch me fake it, fake it, fake it, fake it, yeah

At nine pm I go to sleep
Since questions run too deep
For such a simple man
Cheney please, please tell me what to do
I haven't got a clue
Now that we've tossed Saddam
Bomb Iran, or Sudan, or Japan

So illogical
In- in- ineffectual
So deplorable
So illogical

Good, but the original is the Logical song, not the Illogical song. But still 555

Glad yours didn't get trashed just by being Anti-Bush. Great job!

Ah, yes, a writer after my own political heart. Well thought out.

I was looking for Supertramps lyrics, and I found this delightfully funny (but sadly accurate) parody. Very good.

Very funny, even to a Republican as myself.

Excellent but sadly accurate parody. The 00s were just that - zeros, nothing, zilch. EVERYTHING sucked out the butt, corruption ruled everything and freedom and justice died. Your parody doesn't suck, tho. Tell it like it is!
