The Lyrics

We see Shrub flub
Just tease his mind
He's in a bind, bind
Because things aren't fine
But Poppy said:
"You can't worry, Shrub.
Don't accept their debate."
He said, "Shrub, it's so easy.
Play the game, look good, and fake.
You can't worry Shrub.
Just like running a state.
If you go bust, it's no crime.
No matter how high the stakes."

But Shrub got all the brakes
In command before.
We'll find the Shrub must now ad lib again.
Right Wing means everything
With all those hangers on.
Kept them at arm's length before
But they're not gone.
Last November, Poppy said:
"You can't worry, Shrub.
Don't accept their debate."
He said, "Shrub, it's so easy.
Play the game, look good, and fake."

The Wrong Head of State,
How much more can he fake?
Before Dubya's mess
Will fall apart,
Fall apart and break?

On foreign affairs, he thinks advice alone
Can run this nation for the Shrub,
It's all been shown, on Powell,
He'll rely for what's going on.
Heed specious words of his hangers on
He'll remember what Poppy said:
"You can't worry, Shrub.
Don't accept their debate."
He said, "Shrub, it's so easy.
Play the game, look good, and fake.
You can't worry Shrub.
Just like running a state.
If you go bust, it's no crime.
No matter how high the stakes."

The Shrub flubs - dumb and sleazy
Cabinet's waiting... anticipating...
That Ashcroft's voice will talk for the Far Right
The Pretender's charms
Can't win the fight
They're debating... they'll keep John waiting...
Ashcroft is sleazy...
But Poppy said:
"You can't worry, Shrub.
Don't accept their debate."
He said, "Shrub, it's so easy.
Play the game, look good, and fake.
You can't worry Shrub.
Just like running a state.
If you go bust, it's no crime.
No matter how high the stakes."
