The Lyrics

We apologize for the lyrics being so similar to the original, but it just fits so well. This is right after Condoleeza Rice's statement about the USA's position on Iraq.
Now Bush won't back down, no he won't back down
Until Iraq gives up their bombs and shells
He just won't back down

Gonna stand his ground, can't be pushed around
And he'll keep this world all secure and sound
Gonna stand his ground, no he won't back down

Hey Saddam, you've got no easy way out
Hey Bush will stand his ground
No, he won't back down

'Cause he knows it's right, protect our way of life
In a world that's 'bout to be run to the ground
Well he won't back he won't back down

Hey Iraq, there's just no use to shout
Hey, yeah, Bush'll take you down
'Cause he won't back down
No he won't back down

Concur with statement made by Roger Wykoff even though he seems to have misread the intent of "Bush Won't Back Down" based on an Report Inappropriate Comment.

I think this is a good parody about how bad Bush is for refusing to back down after sending all the innocent soldiers out to war against their will and a lot are dying out in Iraq.
