The Lyrics

This time I DID use the OS by Smokey Robinson & the Miracles...I think Smokey's treatment works with this one...hmmm....I wonder who this could be about?
[intro music]

{Oh, Damn, damn, damn-it}

You see that smirk upon his face
it was just there 'cause he fooled the Public
Now we discover; but far too late
of all the harm he's done our Republic

Now we're bogged down in a dumb War
we weren't told the truth what it's for
I think that is sad
Now I'm madder than mad
They lied to us, yeah, we've been had
This lying clown; worse than his Dad

And now we're bogged down in Iraq
Lost; adrift cannot get back
Give jeers for this clown
'Cause he's let us all down

And that ain't, 'maybe'

They said that Hussein had 'W.M.D's'
But that was a lie, and this they did know
they sent Colin Powell out with this lie
Before the whole world he put on a false show
But his story did convince few
It seemed clear that it was not true
They were not surprised
'cause by now they had realized
from these clowns you must just expect lies
they just ducked, 'cause the bullsh*t just flies

Because they craved War with Iraq
these folks just had no use for facts
Truth; tossed to the ground
covered up; made no sound

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah

Fell for Chalabi's crap
Fallacies; and now we're trapped
Bogged down in a deep quagmire
They got the War that they desired
These arrogant clowns
they have taken us down
Oh, yes, they have, now...

The lies that they told are a disgrace
Still haven't learned their lesson
For constantly they threaten
they might just 'nuke' Iran
don't trust these fools, they're mad

[out to fade]
the situation is bad
these fools, I think they're mad...

paul you seem to be on a roll here. don't stop 5's

carol, sadly I must say that more will, indeed, be coming forth since there seems to be almost no end to the folly and stupidity coming from this bunch ...to the extent I almost have to try NOT to write about it...I hear or see a song and the tone and feel of it seems to say, "Bash these fools". I'd like to come up with a bit more light-hearted material to balance these, but right now my muse seems to be in a rather crabby and irritable mood over the country's direction and (lack of) leadership...can't say as I blame her, though...Thanks ~ ~ ~

I especially liked the congruence of the OS's mournful tone and your own parody's (almost?) hopless laments regarding W's actions these past few...5's

Don't forget the smears of this clown, to those who threaten his crown. (Kerry, Max Cleland, Eric Shinseki, John Murtha, especially.)

alvin, thanks - yes, I believe I will try my hand/hammer/WMDD's(Words of Much Disdain & Disgust) a bit more in the days/weeks to come...it appears the iron is hot and the time is right...let's see, any wise-assed remarks or hackneyed euphemisms I've missed? Rick C -- you seem to have accomplished a rare and wondrous feat: posting the same identical comment simultaneously THREE times...same EXACT TIME stamp on each...just how many of you are there? TJC - Well, there's certainly plenty to mourn, isn't there? JAB, you and me and millions, no...BILLIONS of other folks, I believe...MP - well, yeah, but I think they should stand up and speak out for themselves...they're all grown ups...Frankly, any and all of those four should have PLENTY to say..part of the shame of this whole miserable situation is how recklessly, rudely and dishonestly this administration has gone about smearing honorable men who served their country in the same manner...with honor....just where the HELL does this group of neo-con Chicken-Hawk SOB's get off doing that? I'll leave that question hanging in the air...perhaps the stench it generates will wake up a few more sleeper's...hmmm...think I'll post THAT parody, even though few will know the OS...thanks & later, all - gotta go sharpen my teeth - lol ~ ~ ~

I would think you'd be biased in favor of OSs by anyone named Robinson.... Are you related? .... I liked "public/republic". Add to the file of Five-bashes.

Well written
Rick C - April 28, 2006 - Report this comment
Wow, that's weird! I gave three fives and three comments. Musta really liked it.
Paul Robinson - April 28, 2006 - Report this comment
TT - Thanks....no, me and the Smokey guy are not directly related, outside of perhaps originating with that distant 1st dude whoever it happened to be. Larry Hensley - Thanks. Rick C - Yeah, that's what I figured ~ ~ ~ Hey, look...somebody musta accidently hit "1-1-1". Clumsy, huh? ~ ~ ~
