The Lyrics

First off, I'd like to make 2 things clear:1) I am Canadian, hence the ending2) "Turban-head" is not meant to be offensive, but is used to show the derogatory way we see citizens of "third world" nations. I'm sorry, but there is only one world in my mind.
Pushy Mr. Bushy the position you hold,
Pays your bills while it destroys our souls,
I wish you'd leave, don't think you'd miss me,
Your friends all go down in punditry history,

Dummy Mr. Rummy your country is a wreck,
Can you feel Fox News and Karl Rove breathing down your neck?
You move too fast, don't understand peace,
You're going to go down in tyranny history,
Rummy

War, war, brutal war,
You're shaking the whole world down to the core,
But still you'd rather have oil rigs than houses or markets,
Any day, anyway, get away,

I think you feel more fulfilled,
Every turban-head that your vast armies kill,
You want to rise and you want to rule,
You want to do something your daddy just couldn't do,

Zany Mr. Cheney your position on health,
We'll pay for care and you can hoard your wealth,
I didn't realize that you loved strategy,
I didn't realized you planned such bloody awful strategies,
Cheney

Pardon Mr. Martin since you ask,
You're a Canadian pain in the ass,
I know I shouldn't voice this out,
And so I beg your pardon Mr. Martin,
Oh, you're a dummy.

DKTOS, but you're right on target. Why do I have to go online and read the Montreal Gazette and the Toronto Star to get truly objective reporting on Bush?

DKTOS, but you're right off your rocker. Why do I have to go offline and read the Weekly Standard and Human Events to get truthful reporting on Bush's enemies?

You're right...why DO you have to read the Weekly Standard and Human Events when you'll get that same propaganda from the New York Times or FoxNews, both of which are much easily accessible?

Morrissey also got a rollocking for the 'Bengali In Platforms' song off 'Viva Hate', if I remember correctly. The tabloid reaction to the London bombings of late also put me in mind of Fish's 'Confessions Of Johnny Punter' off 'Sunsets On Empire' - the 'turban-head' reference above made me think of the line 'Just another rag-head' in this, although Fish included equally offensive nicknames to other minorities in the same song.
