The Lyrics

Written as a first draft during the actual event, so go easy on it, k?
Things went wrong today
B. S. came my way
I turned on the tube
Oh, no, here comes the boob

Western Leader man
Speaks as best he can
Tries to sound so wise
Selling me his lies

Hour of my time to hear
More garbage for another year
Says we gotta keep the war
Not have peace forever more

Got his message just tonight
No change from the current plight, hey
(hey) State o' th' Union

Da-da-da-da-da da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da da-da-da-da-da

Da-da-da-da-da da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da da-da-da-da-da

Wish he'd go away and
Be so great to say he's gone
Listening to what he said
Now I'm going out of my head

TV set just had to say
We've learned no lessons on the way, hey

He'll be on his way 'cause
Term is gonna end some day
'Bye to you, dear Sir, and
Things'll be as they were

Da-da-da-da-da da-da-da-da-da

(State o' th' Union, oh State o' th' Union)

Nice choice of OS...although given the subject I might've changed the "da-da-da-da's" to "duh-duh-duh-duh..." etc.

Why didn't I think of that???? (distracted by the actual event, as per the preface, I guess)

even so, it's still well said.

Good way to go after him without having seen the speech, or without really listening to it, always preferable with this bum. (Yes, he IS a bum!) And, no, no one can teach him to see "NU-kleer," because in order to teach, one first has to have a student willing to learn. And don't take this the wrong way, but Bush himself is like a turtle: If he doesn't like what he sees, he retreats into his shell, and assumes, since you can't see him, he can't see you, therefore you must not be there... when the truth (for Bush, always a foreign policy) is, HE is the one who is usually not there... or not ALL there.

carol, AFW, thanks. Michael, the Turtle is glad he will have a shell in which to hide when the Bushit hits the fan. You humans are just out of luck.
