The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

Dubya's a right wing nut, right wing all the time.
He's mystified about why folks think it was a crime.
Bush is the slime who wants arsenic in drinking water.
Bush is the slime who wants arsenic in drinking water.
Bush is the slime who wants arsenic in drinking water.
Bush is the slime who wants arsenic;
Spin doctors guard their pup.
Spin docs said: "Ain't nothin' here at stake."
Said spin doctors: "This ain't no Bush mistake."
Said spin doctors: "Ain't nothin' here at stake."
Said spin doctors: "This ain't no Bush mistake."

Dubya's a right wing nut, right wing all the time.
He's mystified about why folks think it was a crime.
Bush is the slime who wants arsenic in drinking water.
Bush is the slime who wants arsenic in drinking water.
Bush is the slime who wants arsenic in drinking water.
Bush is the slime who wants arsenic;
Spin doctors guard their pup.
Spin docs said: "Ain't nothin' here at stake."
Said spin doctors: "This ain't no Bush mistake."
Said spin doctors: "Ain't nothin' here at stake."
Said spin doctors: "This ain't no Bush mistake."

Bush couldn't get it straight.
Bush is the slime who wants arsenic in drinking water.
Bush is the slime who wants arsenic in drinking water.
Bush is the slime who wants arsenic in drinking water.
Bush is the slime who wants arsenic;
Spin doctors guard their pup.
Spin docs said: "Ain't nothin' here at stake."
Said spin doctors: "This ain't no Bush mistake."
Said spin doctors: "Ain't nothin' here at stake."
Said spin doctors: "This ain't no Bush mistake."

He'll take his time with the arsenic.
He's thinks that would be better.
He'll take his time with the arsenic.
His law's not to the letter.
He'll take his time with the arsenic.
And stalled on global warming.

Woo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo.
Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo.

Dubya's a right wing nut, right wing all the time.
He's mystified about why folks think it was a crime.
Bush is the slime who wants arsenic in drinking water.
Bush is the slime who wants arsenic.
Spin doctors guard their pup.
Spin docs said: "Ain't nothin' here at stake."
Said spin doctors: "This ain't no Bush mistake."
Said spin doctors: "Ain't nothin' here at stake."

Bush couldn't get it straight.
Bush is the slime who wants arsenic in drinking water.
He's the slime who wants arsenic in drinking water.
He'll take his time with the arsenic.
For such a silly reason.
He'll take his time with the arsenic.
He's thinks that would be better.
He'll take his time with the arsenic.
His law's not to the letter.
He'll take his time with the arsenic.
And stalled on global warming.

Whoa - our health is what's at stake!
We say, no! to poison from the Fake.
We know it's so - our health is what's at stake!
We say, no! to poison from the Fake.
We know it's so - our health is what's at stake!
Said spin doctors: "This ain't no Bush mistake."
Said spin doctors: "Ain't nothin' here at stake."
Said spin doctors: "This ain't no Bush mistake."
Said spin doctors: "These aren't silly reasons."

He'll take his time with the arsenic.
He's thinks that would be better.
He'll take his time with the arsenic.
His law's not to the letter.
He'll take his time with the arsenic.
And stalled on global warming.
Yeah, he stalled on global warming.
He stalled on global warming.

Dick told him what to do, 'cause he stalled on global warming.
Dick told him what to do, 'cause he stalled on global warming.
Dick told him what to do, 'cause he stalled on global warming.
Dick told him what to do, because he stalled on global warming.
Dick told him what to do...
