The Lyrics

Satire about the cynical manipulation of California's "energy crisis" by Bush and his energy cronies
(instrumental intro)

Power grids are down.
Californians pray.
Hear Dubya talk:
"They'll just have to pay!"
The globe is getting warm.
But Bush says he'll delay.

California's screamin'
About how much they'll pay.

Bush stopped all research
To find a better way.
Got this state down on its knees
'Cause of Election Day.
You know this White House has been sold.
Big Oil is gonna stay.

California's screamin'
About how much they'll pay.

(instrumental break)

Power grids are down.
Californians pray.
Hear Dubya talk:
"They'll just have to pay!"
Bush friends are the sellers.
Enron eased the way.

California's screamin'
About how much they'll pay.
(California's screamin')
About how much they'll pay.
(California's screamin')
About how much they'll pay.
