The Lyrics

Part 2 of the Bash the Administration set
We see that look in his eyes
And yeah, we know better
He's spewin' out more lies
And thinkin' that he's clever
But he's stark raving mad

Oh, whoa, whoa, Cheney's lyin'
Oh, whoa, whoa, Cheney's lyin'

Now Cheney lied about Saddam
And about 9-11
He spoke with such aplomb
But none of us believed him

His bank account ain't hurtin', yeah yeah
From contracts he got for Halliburton
He says "I have severed all those ties"
But influence, he's been exertin'

Oh, whoa, whoa, Cheney's lyin'
Oh, whoa, whoa, Cheney's lyin'

Now Cheney's lied a lot before
And he knows what lies are for
It's a good, a good way to start a war
Against Iraq!

He leaked some classified info, yeah yeah
"Cause Joe Wilson said Niger's a no-go
He said "Give it, give it to Bob Novak
"Then deny that I ever said so"
Oh, whoa, whoa, Cheney's lyin'

Oh, whoa, whoa, Cheney's lyin'
Oh, whoa, whoa, Cheney's lyin'
Oh, whoa, whoa, Cheney's lyin'
Oh, whoa, whoa, Cheney's lyin'
I made an mp3 to this, but I don't have a place to post it. Let me know if you would like a copy.

Perfect song selection and well written.

Of course, it was Bush Sr. who invaded the title of another VH song, "Panama." But he was able to do it right, unlike his kid.

I echo carol and Rex's statements...this is very good!

Thanks all. This was really my first non-work-related parody. I had seen all the attempts at "Cheney's got a gun" but felt there had to be another way to poke at him. And it's hard to sing "contracts for Halliburton." My next target is Rumsfeld, but the only idea I have so far is a parody of REM's (Don't Go Back To) Rockville titled (Don't Talk Back To) Rumsfeld. But I think that song is too obscure.

Great job! And "Rockville" isn't that obscure, go for it! 555

Excellent parody! Too bad we can't talk Dave into singing your lyrics this summer.
