The Lyrics

This song is sung by President Bush regarding the recent reports he may have known about 9/11 in advance.
The terrorist attacks were dire
I had no way of knowing they'd set the Towers on fire.
Believe me when I say,
I didn't want it that way.

The intelligence reports that we had
didn't tell us things would be this bad.
Believe me when I say,
I didn't want it that way.

Tell me why
Ain't nothing but a heartache
Tell me why
Ain't nothing but a mistake
Tell me why
I'm even criticized when I say,
I didn't want it that way.

I am not the one to be blamed for the terrorist's dire plots,
nor their evil thouts.
Yes, I know it's too late,
but I didn't want it that way.

Tell me why
Ain't nothing but a heartache
Tell me why
Ain't nothing but a mistake
Tell me why
I'm even criticized when I say,
I didn't want it that way.

Now I can see that terrorists are still plotting something dark
I try in every way possible to tear those ideas apart.
No matter what critics say,
I want to say today,

I didn't know the attacks would be so dire,
the terrorists would set the Towers on fire.

I don't want to hear people say I'm to blame.

Tell me why
Ain't nothing but a heartache
Tell me why
Ain't nothing but a mistake
Tell me why
I'm criticized even when I say,
I didn't want it that way.

Tell me why
Ain't nothing but a heartache
Tell me why
Ain't nothing but a mistake
Tell me why
I'm criticized even when I say,
I didn't want it that way.

Because I didn't want it that way.
