The Lyrics

Dedicated to Golden Pirana, who issued the write-a-U2-parody challenge in his/her/its Sk8erBoi parody.
I have climbed desert mountains, I have seen oil fields.
Do they belong to me? Do they belong to me?
I have run, I have crawled, I have seen Internet polls, Internet polls.
All say "Peace be with you."
But I still haven't found why we go to war.

I see Bush, what a drip, losing face on video clips.
A real live wire, he's such a big liar.
Thinks he speaks with tongues of angels.
Thinks Tom Daschle must be the devil.
Bush bows to the right, with a brain made of stone.
But I still haven't found why we go to war.
But I still haven't found why we go to war.

I believe that old Saddam
has hidden weapons, but where have they gone? Where have they gone?
Well, yes, they're still looking.
Bush broke his word of sacred honor
looks at Justice and he spits on her
he spits on her.
And we all believe it.
But I still haven't found why we go to war.
But I still haven't found why we go to war.
But I still haven't found why we go to war.
But I still haven't found why we go to war.
By the way, I still have the record of the original version of this song. Yes, a 45 RPM record. They only made them for another couple of years.

Not really a U2 fan myself, it feels appropriate to take this opportunity to pass along a parody idea of mine to someone who obviously is: Their song "With or without you" could be used for a first person perspective song about whether or not Hillary Clinton should run for president in 2004, and whether or not she should divorce Bill before doing it (pun intended). Chorus idea: "Im gonna run, with or without Bill." :-)

I agree 100% with you and its a great parody so 555 its painful when I hear people talk about what Bush has done for this country umm what you mean get us further into debt, make other countries hate us and cause them to laugh at us for electing an idiot again, send us off to Iraq when we should be worried about Osama Bin Laden (but then his country had no oil so it wouldn't have been profitable)
