The Lyrics

Oh you lie Dave Patraeus
You lie Dave Patraeus
Lies, lies, lies, all lies Dave Patraeus
Affair with Broadwell had to stop

He was a 4-Star
Middle East biggie
Intel and fighting
Director of CIA sitting
Had fame and position, liked to brag
Biographer snagged
Extramarital fling
Denied at first by Dave Patraeus

Dave Patraeus, Dave Patraeus
Dave Patraeus, Dave Patraeus
You lied as FBI outted your mess

General 4-Star
Who liked playing war
He was so exalted
Because he had gone so far
Adultery also
Broadwell's idol
Until he was outted
Resigned Dave Patraeus


Unreliable Dave Patraeus


Met at Harvard 2006
Secret affair thought he could handle
Fake names for fake emails
FBI investigated her, led to him
A lot of hot water got him in
It was common knowledge
He committed adultery
He ran out of luck


You POS Dave Patraeus!

Dave, Dave, we were not deceived
Dave, Dave, No, we didn't believe
Wrong went the strategy you conceived
Mess, mess, mess
It was hard to believe
Dave, Dave, you lacked fidelity
Dave, Dave, no deniability (no credibility)


Forced to resign as Director of the CIA...
