The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

(oo) Bush did cough...
(oo) Epiglottis...
(oo) Tried to eat...
(oo) Got laryngitis...
(oo) Now he's askin'...
(oo) Just for those little pretzels, so he won't choke...
Bush Baby (just the little ones)...
So he won't choke (just the little ones)...
(Just the little ones) Yes, sir (just the little ones)...

Didn't chew, it went down wrong (oo),
Moment's gone.
Somehow it went down wrong (oo)...
And now, all Dubya (oo),
All he's askin' (oo)...
Is for those little pretzels...
So he won't choke (just the little ones)...
For him (just the little ones)
To eat at home (just the little ones)...
Yeah (just the little ones)...

Cost isn't an issue... the man's got money.
Chokin' while snackin'... folks found funny.
It's food that even paupers...
Still can afford (just the, just the, just the...)
Bush Baby (just the, just the, just the...)
Eats them at home (just the little ones)
Yeah (just the little ones)...

(instrumental break)

No Hershey's kisses (oo)!
Sticky, like honey (oo).
Can harm those (oo)
With so much money (oo).
All Bush wants now to do (oo) is say:
"I'll chew my pretzels... when I'm at home."(chew, chew, chew, chew)
Bush Baby (chew, chew, chew, chew).
Not to worry (pretzels, just the little ones).
To eat at home, now (just the little ones).

Choked on one, and he caught hell.
His cheek starts to swell.

Oh (gin and tonic, gin and tonic, gin and tonic, gin and tonic...)
And little pretzels (gin and tonic, gin and tonic, gin and tonic...)
Bush Baby (just the little ones),
And little pretzels (just the little ones).
Now he's tired (just the little ones).
Keeps on lying (not just little ones).
Was drinkin', no foolin' (just a little bit)...
