The Lyrics

William Tong didn't think of this one already? Good, I'm in the clear... even if Dick Cheney isn't (or shouldn't be).
Have a Halliburton Christmas!
It's the best you'll do this year!
Well, I don't know if you will go
to Iraq, so, just cheer!

Have a Halliburton Christmas!
And when you walk down the street
salute Dick, and do it quick
or IRS you'll meet!

Oh, ho, the missiles blow!
Thanks to bribery!
Somebody waits for you.
Pay him once for me!

Have a Halliburton Christmas!
And in case you didn't hear:
It's real certain, Halliburton Christmas
this year!

Have a Halliburton Christmas!
And you all know what we forge:
Defense contracts, and grinding axe
for President named George!

Oh, ho, good money blow!
New Orleans levee!
Somebody gets no-bid!
Don't you know, it's me!

Have a Halliburton Christmas!
And in case you didn't hear:
It's real certain, Halliburton Christmas
this year!

That's the way to give 'em Hall-iburton...

Good parody, MP. Halliburton is a very good substitute for holly jolly, and no-bid contracts are appropriate spoof targets. Of course, Halliburton was also getting no-bid contracts during the Clinton administration.

Polack Mike, you are a lying bassturd. VP Cheney is innocent of all wrongdoing.
