The Lyrics

You can use the following guide to check the settings on your Perceptual Faculties...
[Acoustic guitar intro]

"Yellow" is the colour of the stripe that runs
down the back of Mr. Bush
all the way down
to his tush
Lacks a spine
it's a crime
he's President

"Truth's" been a victim of this feckless guy
every moment of his term
do you think we'll ever learn?
That this guy
is a liar
this President

"Greed" is the engine that drove us to War
to this horror we despise
our attack was not justified
realize
it was unwise
I do not jest

"Foolish" is the fellow who controls our Fates
It's frustrating, in a word
three more years left he's to serve
Death and War
and what for?
God, what a mess

[Acoustic guitar instrumental break]
[The part below this in {brackets} is sung to the instrumental break, which follows the same pace and scheme as the regular lyrics verses]

{Damn, George Bush is a f*cking jerk}
{That's for certain, yeah, for sure}
{gonna screw up our future}
{But we're stuck with}
{this damn f*ck-wit}
{for three more years }

"Freedom" is a word that's been abused
by this President; That fool
He has bent it, that's not cool
It's a crime
yes, ain't it time
That he was tossed?

[Acoustic guitar out to end]

{ain't it time}
{he was tossed}
(out of office}
