The Lyrics

It's been six years. Why is there still a hole in the ground there? And why is Osama bin Laden still alive? And why are we in Iraq, which had nothing to do with it?
Why have our towers gone?
Long time passing.
Why have our towers gone?
Long time ago.
Why have our towers gone?
Memo-reading, Bush ain't done.
Oh, will he never learn?
When will he ever learn?

Where have our policemen gone?
Long time passing.
Where have our firemen gone?
Long time ago.
Where our first responders gone?
Rudy's bad radios, dumb.
Oh, will he never learn?
When will he ever learn?

Where have all our soldiers gone?
Long time passing.
Where have all our soldiers gone?
Long time ago.
Where have all our soldiers gone?
Not to catch the guilty one.
Oh, will he never learn?
When will he ever learn?

Where's Osama bin Laden gone?
Long time passing.
Where's Osama bin Laden gone?
Long time ago.
Where's Osama bin Laden gone?
Apparently, to a salon.
He made our towers burn.
When will Bush ever learn?

Where has all our honor gone?
Long time passing.
Where has all our honor gone?
Long time ago.
Where has all our honor gone?
Trailed in dust by Prez so dumb.
Oh, will we never learn?
When will we ever learn?

Where've our priorities gone?
Long time passing.
Where've our priorities gone?
Long time ago.
Where've our priorities gone?
There's still big hole in the ground!
Oh, will we never learn?
When will we ever learn?

Not long now, Bush will be gone.
Great time coming.
Not long now, Bush will be gone.
Should've been long ago.
Not long now, Bush will be gone.
Rebuilding will be begun.
That's when we'll show we've learned.
That's when we'll show we've learned.

Why must we wait another eighteen months? And to think another hundred years from now history will be every kid's favourite subject. We've got the most recent example: "I'd like to thank the Austrians for supporting our boys out there".

Great idea, combining a tribute and a poticial bash...

OK, but the parody seems to ignore all the work that has gone to insure no terrorist attacks on U.S. soil since 9/11/01.

Mike, I know exactly why we have a hole in the ground after 6 years, why bin Laden is still alive and why we invaded Iraq when there was no Al-Qaeda connection whatsoever: Dubya is an idiot who drove a car through a hedge in 1974 and used cocaine that same year. I'm not from Texas and have never been there (Thank God!), but I believe that possessing cocaine is a felony in every state. Therefore, Dubya is a convicted felon and never should have been allowed to run anyway. I am voting for Obama in '08!
