The Lyrics

About time John Kerry put the Senator away and brought the Lieutenant back out. Why the hell wasn't he talking like this two years ago? He'd be President now!
(instrumental opening)

Well, that Iraq clown.
He's an Iraq clown.
Well, two years ago
he was giving me hell.
Now I won't back down.

Gonna stand my ground.
He lies by the pound.
All those Democrats
he tries to drag down
but he's an Iraq clown.
And we won't back down.

(That Iraq clown!)
Hey, baby!
The people wanna get out!
(That Iraq clown!)
Hey, I
will stand my ground
against that Iraq clown.

(instrumental break)

Well, he's so far-right
just can't see the light.
It time we all stopped letting
him push us around
and we'll stand our ground
against that Iraq clown.

(That Iraq clown!)
Hey, baby!
The people wanna get out!
(That Iraq clown!)
Hey, I
will stand my ground
against that Iraq clown!

(That Iraq clown!)
Hey, baby!
The people wanna get out!
(That Iraq clown!)
Hey, I
will stand my ground
against that Iraq clown!
Bush, you're an Iraq clown!
And Dick Cheney is the ringmaster. But who's watching the elephants, and who's gonna clean up what they're leaving us?

Looks more like "Hari Kari for Kerry" to me...

I liked it, MP - Good timing, what with the Election around the corner. I plan to make another 'political' post or two before Tuesday.

As the dummy who got stuck in Iraq would say, Paul... "BRING IT ON!" I hope they're as funny as they are correct. We can all use a laugh.
