The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

He's bound to fumble; it's plain to see
Supreme Court judges made him king
Hey, he... has got the brains of an amoeba!
Stolen election's an indignity
Bush wants a lot of power to fling
Hey, he... is now known as dumb king Dubya

(Chorus:)
Are you ready for the king called Shrub?
No votes from me or you; was installed from above
He is the cheatin' kind; his cronies did stuff
Are you ready for the king called Shrub?

He's not an icon; he's just a dope
Nothing will clean up his reputation
Hey, he... don't give a damn 'bout global warming
We won't live in fear or act without hope
Reject him; don't help him steal the nation
Crazy! How come the cry of Shrub is so alarming?

Are you ready for the king called Shrub?
No votes from me or you; was installed from above
He is the cheatin' kind; his cronies did stuff
Are you ready for the king called Shrub?

(Bridge:)
People chuckling: "Dubya's a dunce."
Can't hide that he's a fake
Listen to the masses; they are right on
Fate of the whole world at stake

Are you ready for the king called Shrub?
No votes from me or you; was installed from above
He is the cheatin' kind; his cronies did stuff

Are you ready for him?
Are you ready for the king called Shrub?
No votes from me or you; was installed from above
He is the cheatin' kind; his cronies did stuff

Are you ready for him?
Are you ready for Bush Baby?
Oooh yeah, Fake!
Are you ready for Shrub?
