The Lyrics

Fema head, Michael Brown, no longer in charge of Katrina disaster
America seen a long delay with Katrina
So, he had to go
Brown, down
Loud, came a rumble, someone said better tumble
One big domino
Brown, down

Decision clean and smooth to soothe the victims of the city
Wrenchin' world attention from the scenes that aren't so pretty
Floodin' the news..

The polls will be brighter, now
Bush can forget all his troubles,
Forget all his cares
Cause it's Brown, down
Administration floats
Brown, down
Bring on the next scapegoats
Brown, down
Mikey, you drew the short straw..

No resignation, sort of like a vacation
To DC, he goes
Brown, down
Could be more choppin', other heads may be droppin'
It's a guess, who knows?
Brown, down
Put in charge of Fema now, is Admiral Chad Allen
If he does a better job and everything starts gellin'
Happy times, then

The polls will look better, and
Bush can forget all his troubles
Forget all his cares
Yes, it's Brown, down
Castle has filled the moats
Brown, down
Poison needs antidotes
Brown, down
Mikey, you drew the short straw...

I read today that Brown's job previous to Fema was organising Andalusian dancing horse shows (I'm not making this up...) and there were complaints even then. Good job, AFW. 555
