The Lyrics

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized." Now, what liberal, America-hating, terrorist-supporting Communist wrote that? James Madison. It's the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Madison was the 4th President of the United States. Now, the 43rd occupant of the office says he can read your mail and mine, and doesn't need a warrant. I leave it to the reader to decide whether the man doesn't know that he's violating the Constitution, or that he does and he just doesn't give a damn.
(instrumental opening)

Gave me a policy that's so insane.
Ain't got time to make a complain.
Fourth Amendment's gone!
Something else gone wrong!
Bush says that he can read all my letters!

He don't care how much money he's gotta spend.
Investigations are so crazy.
Fourth Amendment's gone!
Something else gone wrong!
Bush says that he can read all my letters!

Well, she wrote me a letter.
Said she couldn't live without me no more.
So how come there were two sets
of fingerprints upon it?
Hers, and Bush's, too?
Oy-yi-yi, oy!

Gave me a policy that's so insane.
Ain't got time to make a complain.
Fourth Amendment's gone!
Something else gone wrong!
Bush says that he can read all my letters!

Well, she wrote me a letter.
Said she couldn't live without me no more.
So how come there were two sets
of fingerprints upon it?
Hers, and Bush's, too?
Oy-yi-yi, oy!

Gave me a policy that's so insane.
Ain't got time to make a complain.
Fourth Amendment's gone!
Something else gone wrong!
Bush says that he can read all my letters!

Well, I gotta agree, MP...but it's not surprising that "The Decider" decided that what was good enough for the Republic and 42 prior Presidents needed to be trashed. You know, when people talk about impeachment they miss the most obvious violation...this man took an Oath of Office wherein he stated he would "Preserve, Protect and Defend the Constitution of the United States of America" and proceeded to trash it almost immediately..'nuff saidd..back to work...

your rant matched the frantic tone of the OS well

I totally agree with you and I enjoyed your parody- I guess the OS repeated the first verse 3 times, too. You definitely made your point!

All fives. The original GW, George Washington, is probably spinning in his grave as we speak.
