The Lyrics

I find George Bush's religiously-inspired foreign policy really rather worrying. But he's not going to be president for much longer, so hopefully nothing terminal will have happened to the world before he leaves...
Ira- ra- ra- rara- rara- ran (Kaboom!)
Ira- ra- ra- rara- rara- ran (Kaboom!)
Ira- ra- ra- rara- rara- ran


With a press corps fawning
on a White House sunny lawn-ing
How I feel dismay there
[At] What Bush is trying to say there
What he's proclaiming, word of God, he's sure
Looks like he's aiming for religious war

Is this the way to Armageddon?
That's where we're goin' the way we're headin'
A nu-cu-lar Armageddon
It seems to me insanity
It's a crusade to Armageddon
Seems to me that his attitude's spreadin'
Stumbling on to Armageddon
Complete obliv-yon - wait and see

Ira- ra- ra- rara- rara- ran (Kaboom!)
Ira- ra- ra- rara- rara- ran (Kaboom!)
Ira- ra- ra- rara- raran
Seems utterly insane to me...

Why ain't people baulking
When he says it's God who's talking?
It must be delusion
Surely that's the only conclusion
Will he send a bomber with a nuke or two
When he stops to ponder: "What would Jesus do?"

Is this the way to Armageddon
Every night there ain't been no forgettin'
Screaming dreams of Armageddon
The mushroom clouds that wait for me
It's Bush's way to Armageddon
Megatons a-waitin' to deton-
Ate a way to Armageddon
Apocal-ocalyptic'ly

Ira- ra- ra- rara- rara- ran (Kaboom!)
Ira- ra- ra- rara- rara- ran (Kaboom!)
Ira- ra- ra- rara- raran
And meet Ay'tollah Khomeni

Is this the way to Armageddon?
Damn right, that's the way we're headin'
Four horsemen ride to Armageddon
Ridin' with G 'Dubya' B
On his crusade to Armageddon
Hell, outta here I'm a-gettin'
Sleepwalking to Armageddon
Annihilation waits for me

[Repeat to oblivion]

"Hopefully," Phil? You've got the wrong President there. (So do we all, but that's another matter.) Presidents named Bush don't believe in Hope. Presidents named Clinton do, however.

Excellent title subsitution! It alone made me giggle, as did this parody even more so. I think the world is going to go out with a Bush, I mean Bang

Michael - no, it's me that's being hopeful that he's not going to cause WW3 in his last year in office... But surely Bush believes in Hope - he's played golf with him ;-)
Matthias - I was surprised nobody had done this already: the title sub seemed kind of obvious; but maybe quite tricky to think of the right subject matter for the whole song? Dunno, just that nobody had.
Jack & Alvin - thanks :-)

Hmmmm. Get the impression it's Bush fans who gave the song 1,1,1? It looks like a straight fives to me. You're a real optimist, Phil. GW has already done some terrifyingly terminal things whilst he's been in office, although many of them were Cheney or Rumsfeld's ideas.
