The Lyrics

Bush wants a war so you better get the bombing started
Bush wants a war so you better get the bombing started

Get the bombing started, why don't you want to fight?
Everybody knows that Mr. Bush isn't bright
Sending out a message to the Russians and French
We don't want inspections, we just want all the gas
Bush made lots of speeches, telling us what to think
But he still can't prove that there's an al Qaeda link

Bush wants a war so you better get the bombing started
Bush wants a war so you better get the bombing started

Searching for Osama's taking way too much time
Need to blow up something so that Rumsfeld won't whine
Daddy Bush said Saddam is a really bad man
Knock him out of office, forget Afghanistan
Peaving all our allies, all advice is ignored
Now the world calls Bush an arrogant, mindless bore

Bush wants a war so you better get the bombing started
Bush wants a war so you better get the bombing started

Taking a collection as Bush enters the room
Don't believe the war will make the market improve
I don't want the terrorists to get off free
Let's go get al Qaeda instead of Iraqis
No rush on inspections, they are working just fine
Don't need war don't buy in the Bush party line

Bush wants a war so you better get the bombing started
Bush wants a war so you better get the bombing started

Jeff Reuben - Interesting that this has gotten 23 votes now (counting mine) and this will be the first comment. Looks like folks want to avoid political commentary (which is what I believe the subject here wants regular folks to do, disengage and nod your head when he spins out another falsehood). I went 5-4-5 on this, it's pretty well done and I sub "clever/observant/inventive" type ratings in place of "funny" on a lot of politically-oriented stuff these days. I didn't do that earlier but I didn't feel that was fair to well-written work that I couldn't agree with (apologies to earlier vote recipients, but most of us manage to handle occasional slightly lower averages than we would like somehow). If I'm totally put off by the point of view I will wait until I can be more objective before I grade something. These days that could take some time. The current "leader" is such a bad fit for the position I am left as close to speechless as someone like me can be, except when just letting it all roll out and tellling it just like I see it. That's too angry a state to want to stay in for too long so I don't do it much. "W"'s stupidity would be one level but I feel an ugliness that goes much deeper and I find that extremely troubling in someone with so much firepower and leverage at his disposal. 'nuff said for now, I'm sure. Will be looking at more of your stuff. See a fairly good number of Original songs I'm familiar with.

(ABC) Good pacing.
Melhi - June 07, 2004 - Report this comment
G.W.B. probably won't be using it as his campaign theme song, but I like it!
Jeff Reuben - June 07, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks Melhi, for what it's worth, it was written before the Iraq war started. I generally try to stay away from political views, but this is my one vent.

(ABC) Heavy duty.

The politics of dancing...
Excellent job, Jeffaroo. I love the Rumsfeld line. And the title is killer.
Claude Prez - June 11, 2004 - Report this comment
This was a lot of fun to read. Agree about the Rumsfeld line.

Well, I still like mine better, but I'm not biased or anything ;-). This still very much deserves 5s, though - working in "party line" and having it mean something completely different from the original, brilliance.

(ABC) 5-4-4. It wasn't 'edgy' so I voted...

Damn! Let's just bomb the Ruskies and French too! Let's go after Iran! My environmentally unfriendly pick-up truck gets 6 miles to a gallon. I want more oil! Oil I tell ya! Bomb! Bomb! Bomb! Wheee! ::-P

(ABC) - Jeff, I voted back in January and still like this one. Guess I said plenty up in my earlier comments here.

(late abc's comment) Fun read, really good pacing. I don't agree with all the points, but I enjoyed it more the more I read.
