The Lyrics

Pronounce the "W" fully, as duh-bul-you, and it follows the original pacing.
Why do doves often shed a tear
Anytime you are near?
Just like me, they long to be

Why do bombs fall down from the sky
When Saddam they do spy?
Soon you'll see Iraqis free

On the day that you was born, your parents got together
And decided they would name you W
And they got together once again
And made a little Jebediah too

That is why Democrats all frown
Every time you're in town
Just like me, they long to be

Jeb Bush's name is not Jebediah, it's John Ellis Bush. "JEB" is a nickname from that monogram.

That's not nearly as funny, Sorry.
