The Lyrics

(President)

Fellows, it’s bust were going
We loaned a lot, it’s gone to pot
Our stocks are going
It’s such a shame, the banks are lame
Your funds they’re blowing

For our sake you must pay
Or else we’ll go away
And both our parties will be owing—la-la

(Taxpayers)

I’ll pay a week or ten
I’ll pay a decade, then
For you are telling me
It’s bust we’re going….

Before we go
Will you oblige us
And tell us of this debt still growing?

(President)
I’ll do everything my way!
Before I go away!

(Taxpayers)

Good!

(President)

Still our debt is growing…

(The Press)

There’s something that we’d like to print
This president has blown a mint
Our leader is a stupid man
Of this there’s no denying

(President)

My lips are moving with success
But what is coming out, Congress….is someone lying

(Taxpayers)

Our leader is a quite abysmal man!

(The Press)

If he reads any word too big, he naturally mis-speaks it

(President)

I hate a foreign name, I do
Unless it’s held by someone who
Sheik ar-a-beaks it

(The Press)

The leader is a quite immoral man..

Go ‘way now Captain Dubya, American disaster

(President)

Now I can go get plastered!

(ALL):

Go ‘way, go ‘way, go ‘way

(The Press)

He went into the office, by tiniest of margin

(President)

The debt was not so large then!

(ALL)

Go ‘way, go ‘way, go ‘way
He put all his reliance
In God and not in science
And bribes from oil giants

(President)

Hey, hey………………

(Taxpayers)
You haven’t been the right man, and now we pay forever!

(President)

It’s YOU that pulled the lever!

(ALL)

Go ‘way now Captain Dubya, American disaster
He brought us shame that duck so lame
And that is why we pay Go ‘way go ‘way go ‘way
