The Lyrics

I am not a country music fan, but I'm forced to listen to it all day at work. Since writing this parody I have found out that Darryl Worley is not, in fact, a one-hit wonder, but since it's so integral to the song I'm calling it "poetic license".
I hear people say
"We don't like this song
But patriotic cowboys can't be wrong."
Darryl sounds so angry,
And his logic's flawed.
Someone needs to tell him Bush isn't God.
I'm forced to listen to it several times a day.
Now I've got the chance to retort, I would like to say:

You one-hit wonder,
This song's so over-played.
Please believe me when I tell you that your point's been made.
You one-hit wonder,
Do you have no fear
That this angry diatribe will be the end of your career?
Someday you're going to recognize your blunder,
You one-hit wonder.

The people who oppose you
It's not that we don't care
Nor is it that we are unaware.
Our hearts are aching
For all the folks that died,
But that doesn't justify mass homocide.
Because Iraqi people, they have families too.
I'm sure that some Iraqi out there feels the same as you.

You one-hit wonder
Full of righteous ire
Won't be long 'til nausea is all that you'll inspire.
You one-hit wonder
Keen on fighting back
Osama's in Afghanistan
Saddam is in Iraq.
Why try to put together what's asunder?
You one-hit wonder.

bin Laden runs al-Qaida,
While Hussein rules in Iraq.
You must know who you're fighting before you can fight back.

You one-hit wonder,
You who mongers shame,
Did you exploit a tragedy to gain a bit of fame?
You one-hit wonder
Such a fervent song.
Did it ever once occur to you that you may be wrong?
Yes, someday soon you'll recognize your blunder.
You one-hit wonder.
You one-hit wonder.
You one-hit wonder.
